Imagine yourself strolling out of yoga class on a Sunday morning, beaming with that post-workout glow, and ready for a full day of outdoor play. Can you feel the serotonin pulsing through your brain yet? Or picture this: you’re heading to your local farmers market to grab a smoldering hot bevy and a “little treat” or maybe you’re off to run errands and hit the dog park. You might be wondering what you’re wearing. Obviously the cutest onesie–one that takes you straight from a picnic in the park to a mellow, golden-hour hike.

Five The Lable–Body-Ody Midi Bodysuit — $86

Starting off strong with the Body-Ody Midi Bodysuit from Five The Lable, this high-compression, moisture-wicking bodysuit is ideal for working up a sweat and keeping you dry all day. Ranked a level three on their compression scale, this little number offers the support and coverage you need for high-intensity activities, like dancing and jogging. The leg length is comparable to a biker short, so you won’t have to worry about wedges or chafing. Plus, the cutout back detail and figure-flattering color-blocked side paneling give a playful yet stylish vibe. 



Reformation–The Dev Ecostretch Short Jumpsuit — $98

Sporty, but make it chic–we’re loving the Dev Ecostretch Short Jumpsuit for that “cool girl” look. The Dev is a no-brainer for that throw-on-and-go outfit. Pair with some cute sneakers and a stack of jewelry and you’re set for walking the dog or window shopping. Form-fitting and made with Reformation’s velvety performance material, this jumpsuit is staying put during low-impact activities. We’re loving the square neckline for that structured, classic look. 


Matek–All-In-1‑Z — $150

Ahhh, Matek. Like second skin to us, we can’t get enough from this female-founded activewear company. From baselayers to sports bras to bodysuits, Matek has figured out how to bring modern design to performance activewear. So, we couldn’t NOT mention the All-In-1‑Z, the super-stretchy, extra-snug onesie made from recycled nylon. Inspired by classic wetsuits and vintage-style 1920s bathing suits, this unisex onesie is ideal for those who always say “yes” to the next adventure. From spinning on the bike to swimming in the creek (yes, you can even swim in it), this all-in-one piece is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. 


The Upside–Houndstooth Farrah Catsuit — $279.99

Fiercely sporty, the Houndstooth Farrah Catsuit from The Upside is the type of jumpsuit that’ll have strangers stopping to ask where it’s from. Functional, and then some, this unique piece is made from knitted jacquard fabric, which is super soft and equally supportive. Ideal for running errands or running from your problems (we’re not judging), the sculpting tights and the supportive straps are paired to keep you well-supported and covered throughout the day. The cherry on top? The sassy cutout details on the front and back and a figure-flattering removable belt. 


Mate The Lable–Organic Stretch Unitard — $88

Hot yoga? You’ve got it. Cartwheels in the park? Say no more. The Organic Stretch Unitard from Mate features a double-layered top for extra support and coverage, making this an easy choice when shopping for a performance onesie that’ll keep you secure. Mate has figured out how to construct this unitard without that uncomfortable front rise seam, which makes for a seamless, buttery feel all over. Made from a sustainable organic cotton and spandex blend, Mate has calculated that this onesie uses 88.9% less water to make than products made with non-organic materials. That’s a big difference! 


Girlfriend Collective–Cami Unitard —  $88

Keeping on the theme of sustainability, we bring you the Cami Unitard from Girlfriend Collective. One thing about Girlfriend Collective is they’ve honed compression activewear made from recycled water bottles. Not only are we drooling over this unitard for its earth-friendly materials, but also for its range of sizes and variety of inseam lengths. The perfect onesie doesn’t ex–


P.E. Nation–Progression Bodysuit — $110 (was $159)

Frankly, it doesn’t get cooler than the Progression Bodysuit from P.E. Nation. This fitted, active bodysuit with a 5” bike short silhouette is cut from a compressive recycled tech fabric, ideal for sweaty studio classes and high-energy dance parties. And who said you can’t hit the club on the way to 6 am Pilates? The eye-catching cutouts and adjustable, a‑symmetrical straps give a little drama while still keeping everything in place, perfect for girls who don’t want to compromise style for function. We suggest styling this with a pair of trendy yet functional hiking sneakers to round out the look. 


House of Hero–The Biketard — $155

Perhaps the queens of athletic bodysuits and onesies, House of Heros comes through with the cutest one-pieces. We’re obsessing over their Biketard, which is one of those wardrobe pieces that can be styled in endless ways. From the yoga mat to happy hour with the gals, this is a one-piece wonder. Pair it with some dad sneakers and an oversized blazer to bring this look from day to night. 


House of Heros–The Tennis Leotard — $165

This one favors the bold. We just can’t get enough of House of Heros, which brings us to their Tennis Leotard, an ‘80’s inspired onesie made for on and off the court. Legs for days, the high-cut leotard-style body is oh-so elongating and chic. It’s giving Jane Fonda meets the Millennial in the very best way. Hit some balls then throw on an oversized button-up and some moody shades for an after-practice, carefree vibe. 


Beyond Yoga–Spacedye Uplevel Midi Jumpsuit — $138

Last but certainly not least, the Spacedye Uplevel Midi Jumpsuit from the female-founded Beyond Yoga. This made-to-move-in jumpsuit really meets all our requirements for an athletic jumpsuit: cloud-like fabric, adjustable straps, comfortable cut, and figure-flattering. This breathable one-piece is an easy choice for those who work out and chill out.
