Old Navy Powerchill Performance Bodysuit Eye Editor Review

Almost every piece of Activare I own is black – except for some fun-printed sports bras – and TBH, I’m ready to change. Frankly, black is still my favorite color for sweaty workouts, but I’m ready to stretch my outfit with some patterns and colors. While looking at the old Navy’s newcomer section recently, I noticed the Old Navy Powerchill Racerback 7/8-Length Performance Bodysuit, 6-inch Insim ($ 35) and knew it would add to my cart. As much as I was tempted to buy it – you guessed it – black, I stepped out of my comfort zone and claimed my normal size medium black-and-white plaid version. Read on for my honest review.

What I like about this bodysuit

As soon as I read this bodysuit, I knew I didn’t want to open it. The fabric is thick yet soft, and my favorite feature is that it has a built-in cup, so I don’t have to worry about wearing a bra (a game changer 90-degree day in the Midwest). I’m also a big fan of the plaid pattern, which is equally youthful and timeless. I wore it to take my puppy for a walk on a hot-hot day and realized it was the perfect choice of clothing. The six-inch Insim provides good coverage, while the racerback straps don’t feel the slightest bit compressed in the scorching heat of summer.

After the trip, I wore it to write something in the communal workspace of my building. I tossed a white button-up on top and bought my sneakers for sandals to enhance the look a bit.

What is worth noting

While most people are excited about the quality and fit of this jumpsuit, some reviewers like me have noticed that the upper half is a bit larger. That is mine Only The critical response is that I wish it had adjustable straps, but otherwise, I’m a big fan of this silhouette (there’s a very strong possibility that I’d pick it black too).

Another thing to note is that the built-in cups are removable (if that’s not your thing, you just pull them off the built-in shelf bra).

Who is this bodysuit best for?

It’s safe to say that sports people are spending a lot of time in the moment, but the point is, many of them are astronomically valuable. I think this version of the Old Navy is a great option for people who want to embrace the trend without burning their bank account. I would say it’s best for a low-impact workout like a casual-dressing day or a walk. While you can definitely wear it on your own (and get a lot of compliments), it will look really nice with a oversized T-shirt or sweatshirt when the temperature drops.

Additional information

  • The bodysuit comes in XS-4X format.
  • It comes in a total of three styles: red, black and white plaid and black.
  • For extra comfort it has a tag-free label inside, which is a thoughtful touch.
  • To keep it in its primitive state, the brand recommends that it be gently washed in cold water and hung to dry.
