Until Sonata Rapalyte contacted me, I had only ever seen her pieces modeled by people with very slim or athletic builds. I adored her super-delicate silk and lace designs, but the message I got was “these pieces can only be worn well by people with ballerina builds.” I have a soft belly and a fuller bust, so I had firmly put this piece in the “pretty, but not for you” category. (I’m also 5′10″, and most OTR bodysuits are not tall-person-friendly).

I was stunned when the sales team responded to let me know that they made custom bodysuits for people outside their size range all the time, and they wanted to offer me one to review. This kind of lingerie is so different from what I usually choose for myself, and I’m kind of in love with it. Shooting a completely sheer lace bodysuit was a little scary, but it’s becoming one of my favorite things to wear around my apartment, especially as summer creeps closer and the temperatures rise.
