I'm almost 37 and looked at my sister like this > hmm when she recently suggested I try one on.

Jumpsuit - yes.
Denim jumpsuit - I have my doubts.

I am 45 and own 3 jumpsuits.

None of them are denim though, sorry.

I love them on, they're very flattering and easy to wear, but an absolute pita when it comes to going the loo. Especially after a few glasses of wine grin

No no no. Even if you are 6' tall with a super model figure it is going to be v hard to pull off.
It is a basically double denim onesie.

Yes, but beware camel toe. I've just bough two for my hols and I'm 48.

I have ten years on you and recently bought a black one but had a sudden change of heart and took it back on the last day I could get a refund.

It was ok but not flattering on the backside. I quite like the multi-coloured ones young people wear but not for me. Not sure about a denim one.

I have a couple for my summer hols when I will be 45 and find them very flattering, but they are dressy and sleeveless, wide legged. Dreading the loo trips though.

Wore one to my 40th birthday party. Black with heels and quite 'flowy' though... Denim would be tough unless you are very trendy generally?! Likewise, I love the look of dungarees but just don't think I could pull them off. Might have had a chance in my 20s. (Then again, would probably have looked silly then too!)

I wear a gorgeous stretch Jersey jumpsuit, all drapey and sleeveless, lovely with heels or flats comfy as hell and stylish. Denim not so much- I tried one and it was far too mechanic for my liking

So yes to jumpsuits but in a softer fabric

If you want to see how the denim/khaki type look on real forty somethings look at the doesmybumlook40 and allwornoutblog blogs

Something like this: Yes!

Denim? Noooooooooooo!

Nay, nay and thrice nay shock

Juneau- mine is like the first MeandEm one! Cost a fraction of that in Matalan mind ��

I bought a lyocell chambray jumpsuit last summer (like denim but lighter) and have worn it a lot. I'm a pale blonde so denim is my thing, I love anything chambray. Wouldn't go near dungarees but this really works. Oh and my vintage is 1973 wink

I think the issues are that they magnify your arse x 10 and can look great from the front but seriously dodgy from the back. The only age related factor is that you may need to pee more often.

I'm 40 and love jumpsuits, but only classy tailored ones for a night out. I'd never consider wearing one during the day and definitely not a denim one. I'd buy what you've described for my 4 yr old DD. Sorry!

I know they're the thing at the moment, but I just can't get with the programme. I think getting the fit can be tricky (camel toe in particular), I really like things to be tight over my bum blush, and I have a terrible childhood memory of not being able to get out of my onesie playsuit quick enough to get to the loo without an accident blush blush.

Thanks for the advice, I guess it's a no to the denim �� I appreciate you all being straight with me save me making a big mistake ��
