Jumpsuits - what are the rules?

Jumpsuits seem to have become ubiquitous. I'm wondering whether to get one.

I'm 40, pear-shaped and a size 6/8. What do I need to know? Or is it a really terrible idea?

No saggy bums sad rules self out

Rule no1. Don't wear one on a night out drinking as you will find that you spend far too long in the toilet taking the whole ensemble off when you want a quick wee.

Check your rear view before you buy. I look great in them. From the front...

keep the sleeves off the toilet floor.

Don't look like Sam Bailey

god knows, I tried on a lovely one (on the hanger) from whistles that was £160 but it literally looked like a sack

i think you have to accessorise very very welll

Can be flattering but look awful with a cardi.

The ages in the toilet thing is certainly no lie!!

Good tips regarding toilet etiquette - I'd not really thought about that.

I have largish hips/thighs, but I'm quite toned. Maybe I should try a few on...

Floisme Fri 20-May-16 19:51:45

I think it's a case of finding a good fit. Too loose and they give you an arse like a barrage balloon. But too fitted and as Phylum says, you get the dreaded camel toe.

The loo thing is a PITA. I love them though.

The loo is mainly a problem in chilly climates... or severe air-conditioning. In the tropics, it's good to cool off for a moment!

OublietteBravo Fri 20-May-16 22:23:28

I live in East Anglia. It doesn't tend to be tropical around here...

Does anyone's bum look that good in a jumpsuit?
I bought the hush one. I look great from the front smile The jury is out whether it looks a bit shit from the back confused. Not sure about it tbh.

They are like harem pants imho. They make everyone's arse look fat and saggy even people with small tight arses, therefore anyone can wear them 😝 and blame the garment.
Win win

I've never seen anyone's arse look good in one.

Don't wear with trainers, suddenly becomes boiler suit territory. My arse looks ok I think, I'm going to check next time I have it on now. Mine has an elasticated waist, sounds awful but actually good. Loose all over but not baggy.

I think, get a structured one of you have mum tum....I look great in denim jumpsuits but the slowly ones glide across my csextion bulge on a very unflattering way....

OublietteBravo Sat 21-May-16 13:32:26

I quite like this one.

AdoraKiora Sat 21-May-16 13:37:00

I have tried a few on and they just do nothing for me. They're so awful around the bum and foof!

If you can find one that makes your derriere look perky and doesn't show the shape of your genitals, tell me where! grin
