Why choose a bodysuit?
We know what you’re thinking… why opt for a bodysuit over a regular tank or top? Bodysuits are our fuss-free wardrobe must-have, that once bought you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. Once you’ve fastened your poppers, you won’t need to worry about tugging your top into your jeans for that smooth and seamless finish. The bodysuit does not budge. So you can say goodbye to wrinkles and rolls, as this layering essential will not be riding up and driving you around the bend.
For effortless styling that you’ll never tire of, a bodysuit will be your new go-to. Dress up with a pair of tailored trousers and heels for sophisticated (but oh-so comfy) chic. Or if keeping it casual is more your vibe, then jeans and a bodysuit never go amiss.
Not only do our bodysuits look good, they feel amazing, their softness resembling that of a cloud. With their popularity rising over recent months, we know there are an array of bodysuit options on the market, so finding the perfect fit for you is so important. If your experience of the bodysuit thus far has been all synthetic fibres and ill-fitting, uncomfy nightmares, then you’ll have been desperate to get home and change into your pajamas at any given moment. These issues are absolutely unheard of when it comes to Stripe & Stare’s bodysuits, so soft that you forget you have them on! And did we mention they’re made from trees?
We’ve made our case for the bodysuit, crowning them an absolute wardrobe must have, and now we’re ready to help you find your perfect bodysuit. With an array of shapes, colors and fabrics to choose from, we’ve given you a run-down of our favorites to help point you in the right direction.

100% biodegradable?! Barking mad - right? Here’s how it works. Once you’ve worn and loved me to death (in the very distant future), simply pop me in your compost bin (just remember to remove the metal poppers first.) You can rest easy knowing you’ve opted for a sustainable wardrobe staple that reverts back to nature. Using the latest science in fibre technology, our B-Edit Collection combines Lenzing TENCEL™, SeaCell™ and Roica V550 rather than traditional elastane. The biodegradable process releases no harmful chemicals into the soil and takes just 180 days to fully break down when buried in the soil. Made from 71% TENCEL™ Micro Modal, 19% SeaCell™ and 10% Roica V550. The B-Edit Body is available in jet black and whisper white. Shop here.
The cool, nostalgic and elevated basic you didn’t know you needed, until now. Our gorgeous Pointelle fabric features romantic lace and a sweetheart knit design that is simply to die for. The Pointelle body is super-soft, lightweight and breathable, crafted from the same sustainable fibres as our mainline. Putting an S&S twist on the traditionally cotton fabric originating from the 1950’s, we’ve given Pointelle a modern makeover with our 100% biodegradable fibres. The Pointelle Body is available in black and lilac. Shop here.
Why our bodysuits are sustainable
TENCEL™ Modal fibres are extracted from naturally grown Beechwood, by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fibre process which is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood.The European Beech forests grow naturally without the use of chemical fertilisers or artificial irrigation. Lenzing only uses wood from unprotected forests and every tree is regenerated, so anything pulled down is offset with replanting. The production of TENCEL™ Modal uses 95% less water to produce when compared to cotton and reuses 100% of the water from the production process. All TENCEL™ standard Modal fibres are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert to nature.
