About

We love chunky sweaters! They’re cozy, warm, and forgiving. But often, when worn in public, they can make us look unpolished or drab. And trying to tuck them neatly into a pair of skinny jeans, a pencil skirt, or tights is nearly impossible. Sweaters always add more bulk in places that we don’t need more bulk.

But struggle no more. We’ve found the perfect solution by developing the world’s first Chunky Sweater Bodysuit.

 

 

The Chunky Sweater Bodysuit is the new wardrobe essential for women of all body shapes and sizes. It provides the look and feel of a chunky sweater, but with a unique design feature: An attached premium bodysuit that creates a smooth, sleek silhouette, no matter how you wear it.

Thoughtfully designed with the modern woman in mind, the sweater can be worn on or off the shoulder. We’ve combined a mimosa, cotton, and acrylic blend yarn to create one dynamic knit. The result is lightweight, soft to the touch, and breathable – yet thick enough so you don’t have to worry about sheerness.

The bodysuit is no ordinary bodysuit. We set out to create the best bodysuit ever – one that is unbelievably comfortable and functional. We invested in premium materials and sourced our Ponte Roma fabric from Italy. This fabric is naturally compressed and resistant to wrinkles and creases, delivering a sleek, figure-flattering look no matter what size or shape you are. And with full booty coverage and a seamless stitching design, you can go undergarment-free, so you never have to worry about an uncomfortable bodysuit thong or panty lines ever again.

The Chunky Sweater Bodysuit is the first of its kind. It’s comfortable, cozy, but also incredibly chic because of its versatility. With a few styling tweaks, the Chunky Sweater Bodysuit can pull double duty and easily guide you from day to night.

Knits, fabric, and construction of this quality retail for over $395. But we’ve cut out the middlemen and markups by working directly with our manufacturer to sell directly to you. We’ve lined up production partners for every step of the journey from design to doorstep, ensuring the delivery of a quality product that’s bound to become every woman’s new wardrobe essential.

 

The Tank Blouse Bodysuit

Keep it tight and tucked with our Tank Blouse Bodysuit.

To ensure softness and day-long comfort, our blouse is made from a premium stretch Silk Crepe de Chine and Italian Ponte Roma fabric. The bodysuit guarantees a secure, tucked into place look and comes with a snap button closure.

Purposely designed to have a flattering amount of give, wear it under a blazer to finish a classic work look or to polish up your weekend style.

 

 

 

We hate pantylines just as much as we hate adjusting our tops in our bottoms. Our bodysuits are seamless, have full bottom coverage, and provide extraordinary comfort. This unique tank blouse will be your new wardrobe essential.

Risks and challenges

We’ve worked closely with our factory to schedule production, and our overseas manufacturer is standing by, ready to start knitting. While producing anything with a global supply chain is a challenge and there are unknowns, our pledge is this: We will work our hardest to deliver a great product to you, and keep you updated on our progress along the way.
