Donna Karan is one of those designers who has to work really hard to do wrong in my eyes. I've rarely disliked anything she's put out.

I bought the black & creme striped body suit from AA last spring and got so much wear out of it. I found it comfortable and flattering and mostly wore it under skirts and shorts. Here's a pic:

I just can't get on with them as I have a long body & they tend to feel like they are slicing me in half. I ended up cutting the 'knicker' bit off the bottoms and just wearing them as t-shirts/tops.

Gogosushi - taht look so sweet.
Feline - Have you tried going up a size? Things tend to get a bit longer as they go up?

i think it depends...

i've been thinking of picking something up to wear with some of my high-waisted things...

i'm getting a little annoyed with having to tuck things in repeatedly and having them bunch when they should be emphasizing that i have a small waist...

i'll probably have to go to american apparel to see if there's anything that will work for me...
i have a long torso so the whole bodysuit thing could potentially be a problem anyway

i don't think i answered if it was worth the trouble, but with the right pieces it could make for a good look...

I've bought the peaked shoulder Margiela bodysuit last year and I wear it all the time. I also have a Gareth Pugh one and they are both great. I love to layer with them! For me they're completely comfortable and I don't feel at all inconvenienced by them.

it just takes a second to snap or unsnap the closure... and for me personally, that is far less effort than fixing/readjusting a tight shirt which is tucked into something such as voluminous pants, for example.
