The body positive movement, the pandemic-era preference for loungewear, the shapewear obsession, and the rise of studio workouts (pilates, gyrotonics, dance, yoga) all come together in stretchy bodywear that can be worn on its own or function as everyday base-layer pieces. Gabriela Hearst layered a fishnet T-dress over a triangle bra and full coverage briefs. Hanoko Maeda at Adeam picked up on the “snatched waist” trend with a boned corset top over strappy leggings. Dion Lee elevated the hoodie with an elegant wrapped effect, matched to slouchy bermudas. Sandy Liang’s head-to-toe ensemble featured an asymmetric top and apron-layered pants, all in buttercream yellow. PrettyLittleThing showed a sheer thigh-high bodysuit with a hip-slung pencil skirt and Siying Qu and Haoran Li of Private Policy went truly active with a pink scuba bodysuit and coordinating pull-on miniskirt, underlining their save-the-sea inspiration this season.
