Hey friends! I’ve been offline for a while, but today I’m back with a good old-fashioned Everlane review.
This month, I got the opportunity to try out the new Short-Sleeve Crew Bodysuit, which I was grateful for because my old black short-sleeve tee (purchased at H&M a lifetime ago) finally gave up the ghost. This bodysuit is definitely an upgrade.
Everlane first released bodysuits way back in Spring 2018 as part of its first ever underwear collection. Slowly, they’ve added new shapes, styles, and colors in the supersoft, double-lined Supima cotton that makes this collection so great. I wanted to try out the new short-sleeve version because I thought it looked really practical and polished, and, again, I was down a black tee and needed a replacement.
Before my review, some facts: the Short Sleeve Crew Neck Bodysuit comes in four colors (black, white, stripe, and red) in sizes XXS-XL. It’s made from 92% cotton and 8% elastane in an ethical factory in Kandy, Sri Lanka. It costs $32.
I’m wearing the body suit in black in a size S. It fits me well, but I think I could have gone up to a size M and also been fine. What I like most about the bodysuit is that it’s basically a tucked-in t-shirt that you never have to worry about coming untucked. It’s also got a snap situation on the crotch to make it easy to take on and off and to use the restroom with minimal aggravation.
My single complaint about this bodysuit is that the sleeves tend to ride up whenever I move, making the shoulders look a little pointy. I’m always tugging them down, which is pretty annoying. I’m not exactly sure what would fix the problem – if my shoulders were a little wider? If I sized up? Either way, the bodysuit is really nice in spite of that small annoyance, and in general I would still recommend it. I love the new long-sleeve V-neck version as well and am thinking about picking one up for the fall.
I’ve been wearing the bodysuit out and about since I got back from Seattle last week, but I’ve pretty much stopped taking daily pictures of my outfits (more on that at the end of this post), so I don’t have those pictures to show you.
Instead, I decided to play dress-up and create a few outfits starring the short-sleeve bodysuit that I would definitely wear. Enjoy!
One | At the Office
This is a pretty typical office outfit for me. A simple black & white palette is my go-to look – it’s always professional, and there are so many ways to keep it fresh and interesting. The bodysuit is especially great paired with these chinos because the pants don’t have back pockets, so when you tuck something into them you can almost always see the hem through the fabric. Not an issue here!
Two | Weekend Errands
To me, this is a perfect summer outfit. The slim-fitting bodysuit pairs perfectly with the wide-cut shorts, and the lovely graphic print on the tote adds visual interest to an all-neutral look. These sandals aren’t really that fashion-y, but I need a sturdy, semi-athletic sandal for summer that I can do pretty much anything in – and these are slightly less ugly than the Tevas that are taking the world by storm right now.
Three | Date Night
Date night for us is pretty low-key. We’re paying down some debt and saving to move out of my in-law’s house, so for the most part, date night for us is a happy hour dinner deal and a movie at home. I still like to get dressed, even if we’re just headed to a sports bar or a local brewery. These Peg Pants from VETTA never fail me, and with the bodysuit, the overall look is sleek and cool.
Overall, I really like this body suit and I plan to keep it in my regular wardrobe rotation. I try really, really hard to only accept gifted items that I know I’ll wear frequently and that I’m pretty positive will fit (know your measurements, folks!). My opinion on these clothes could never be truly unbiased because of the financial relationship I have with the brands, but I hope you know that I would never recommend something to you that I wouldn’t wear myself.
100 Days Project Update
A little over 50 days ago, I started a project where I intended to take a photo of my outfit and post about it every day for 100 days. It went well for a while, but somewhere near the halfway mark I was finding it burdensome and not fun anymore. The real nail in the coffin was my recent trip to Seattle, where I was working too much to even remember to take an outfit photo, never mind write a whole blog post about it. I started the project to relieve the burnout that I was feeling, but when the project itself was starting to burn me out, I had to hit pause. Thanks for understanding.
