is this not hideous?

I yearn to look good in jumpsuits. (ok, not that particular one...) I think you have to be a) uber thin b) over 5ft8 and c) have the balls to wear one.

I have none of the above.

its not so much the print (which is quite bad) but the hareem pant that makes even the slimmest woman look like they have an elephant arse.

That is a really vile example of a jumpsuit. They can look very chic and stylish but they must be one colour only - strictly no prints. They must also be silk with a loose fit top half and a bum skimming trouser section rather than anything too baggy.

For example: by Edun

I think if they can't even make it look good on a 5'10'' slim, gorgeous model, any "normal" shaped woman like me is going to look frankly awful.

I am aghast at the comeback of jumpsuits.

Just no.

On anybody.

Except a Tiny Tears dolly.

I have a black strapless one years old but fitted at top and smart type trousers. Bought it in matalan one xmas and it looks very good on but I rarely wear it!

They are hideous. Just hideous.

noddyholder Wed 08-Jun-11 16:34:19

left one is like mine feels a bit charlies angels but I like it. Dp strangely loves it!

Had to laugh at the "except on a Tiny Tears dolly" grin grin grin Yep, have to agree!

GetDownYouWillFall Wed 08-Jun-11 16:35:44

Your one is nice noddy I have to say. That 80's style disaster from Very though.... errr.... is not.

I don't like the floaty printed ones with harem pant bottoms. But the designer equivalent which is tailored and made of softer-yet-stiffer material do look good. Though they are perilously close to boiler-suit mechanic-chic which makes me wary of the whole idea!

I got a lovely one from Monsoon and while I'm a bit dubious about looking ridiculous in it - dh, mil, and bf all said it was lovely.

It is very flattering on (5' 10 but a hefty 16) - its the palazzo pants bit that makes me feel a bit of a tube!

But love that Outnet one Tulpe!

I think they're hideous but keep looking at the cheap jersey boobtube/hareem pant ones and thinking the look sooooooooo comfy - have to keep having a stern word with myself as boob tube, hareem and jumpsuit are not words that should be allowed to describe a garment!!!!

i think you have to be tall, and slim of bum/tum. I am tall-ish (5 ft 9) with very long legs and thought i could get away with it (size 14) but have a bit of a tum and mine adds about two stone to me :-((

They can look good if they are cut well, and not in a hideous print, but I wouldn't wear one because you have to practically strip to your skivvies every time you need a wee.
