A jumpsuit is one of those items I always envied on other women. Tall, thin women being able to pull off these adorable silk onesies with their sky high heels and no worries of rippling thigh issues underneath (harsh pearshape reality, yall). But about a week ago I was determined to find a jumpsuit that would fit me, and look flattering. I scoured ASOS to no avail, Nordstrom, etc., only finding options in silk that would surely not fit my thigh area, or would emphasize areas I didn’t necessarily wan’t emphasized with their slight sheen.
I stumbled across this jersey jumpsuit at Macy’s for $35 after discount, and pounced. Yes, it was jersey (not ideal) but I didn’t know what other fabric other than an uncomfortable poly-blend would look better, so I bought it. To my pleasure and surprise, it looks amazing and I feel so wonderful in it. For reference, I’m wearing a size XL and probably could have gotten away with a L but ordered big for safety.
I styled it here with a leather jacket which is how I plan to wear it most often in colder months, and with a different belt as the tie belt it comes with is removable. In reference to the garment itself, it is a wide-leg jumpsuit with a faux wrap top and snap closure at the bust for added discretion.
The suit does have pockets which create a bit of rippling, but I am thinking of getting them removed and/or sewn shut. I love that the jumpsuit has a full back and covered shoulders so us fuller-busted ladies are free to wear a supportive bra. And likewise, appreciate the higher waist for an even more flattering silhouette.
After seeing these pictures i’m more assured that next time I wear it I will slip on my SPANX Assets underneath just for some more support under the jersey fabric, but other than that, i’m so in love with this unique piece!
