Ever since Khloe Kardashian stepped out in a lace bodysuit
and a pair of jeans for her Good American
launch in October, I have wanted to recreate the look. I’ve seen more women sport a lace body suit or lingerie piece with a pair of jeans or leggings, which I think is a pretty cool trend. But how in the world are you supposed to keep it all from falling out when rocking this trend—know what I mean ladies? Sure, Khloe Kardashian has a bomb fashion team ensuring that there are no nip slips or wardrobe malfunctions, but it’s just me over here trying to manage the risk of wearing an actual lingerie piece out in public.
For my take on the trend, I paired this plus size eyelash lingerie teddy
with a pair of skinny black pants
and a pair of simple black heels
. I also topped off the look with this leather jacket
and kept my accessorizing down to a minimum. But like I said, I worried so much about support and coverage for my “gals.” I tried pasties and I even thought about sewing a nude-colored patch into the bracelet part of the piece. None of those methods really worked out, though. So, I ended up wearing a nude push up bra, which obviously worked out with some patience and constant adjusting. While I love this look, it’s not very practical. I think I might just leave it to the pros / Kardashians on this one.
I will say this though: This lingerie piece is stunning, sexy, and suits its main purpose!
I bought this plus size eyelash lingerie teddy on AliExpress. When purchasing things from AliExpress, check the sizing chart before you place your order. I am usually a 1x or 2x, but this piece comes from China and the sizing is usually way off. I ordered a 5x, and it fit perfectly!
