For a very long time I was scared of playsuit and I have no idea why! They’re a no brain outfit and make you look put together instead of like you’ve just rolled out of bed with 10 minutes to get out the door.
The overall cut
It’s a basic one but it is important to consider the overall cut and style. For me jumpsuits that cinch in at the waist and the most flattering because it’s my smallest part of my body however for some a skin tight option will look fab or a super flowy number with a high neck may be cool for others. Finding a few key details that you’re looking for will help you when speed shopping so my suggestion is too spend a day out trying on all the different cuts that are on offer so you can see which one suits you best and makes you feel like a rockstar. The one I’m wearing is by Little Lies via Around In June and I love the way it’s loose but still comes in at the waist so it gives me a good shape. I actually bought this one as my Christmas jumpsuit and I’m so happy with it because you can fold the arms in so it’s like a boob tube aka more practical when handing out gifts or serving food lol!
Length – lift your arms up
Sounds ridiculous but I have a really long torso so a common problem I have with playsuits is that they are so bloody short and that’s without even mentioning ones that are designed to be booty shorts! I’m a huge believer in trying things on multiple times before you make any decisions so try it on, lift your arms up and see if those cheeks are saying hello or not!
Ease of removal
This sounds even more ridiculous but this particular jumpsuit has a tiny button up the top as well as the tie around the waist so if you’re busting for a wee… Well you’ll be doing a dance around the toilet because it’s a pain to get off. Learn from my mistakes and make sure you’re aware of how you’ll be getting it on and off because it does make a difference especially if you’re buying something for an event where you’ll be drinking/weeing lots! This one is very easy to get in and out of but I do have another couple that have buttons at the top so they are reserved for occasions when I’m not drinking.
