I'm the wrong side of 35, a size 12 & carry my weight around my hips as you can see!!
I generally feel crap about my size, but am going out at the weekend & want to look good.

I have got toned arms & quite perky DD's, so that's something at least. I will be wearing a jacket & jewellery. I have a bright yellow blazer & a nude pink blazer.

Gosh, I think you look great! You have a very curvy hourglass figure and I think that jumpsuit shows off all your best assets. I think either yellow or pink blazer would be fab, I guess go with yellow if you want a bit more wow factor, pink if you want to tone it down a bit

Enjoy your night out!

I think it looks great and you wear it well, suits you.

PocketNiffler Wed 17-May-17 15:31:45

Looks amazing! I'd wear matching shoes though! grin

Maudlinmaud Wed 17-May-17 15:31:54

I think it's flattering, you have a lovely curvy shape. Dressing it up with jewellery and blazer sounds good too, very glam. Have fun!!

KoalaDownUnder Wed 17-May-17 15:32:03

You've got a beautiful figure! Go for it.

bassetmum Wed 17-May-17 15:32:07

You look great!! Id go for the yellow blazer if it was me.

LurkinMerkin Wed 17-May-17 15:34:26

Looks fab on you! I'd go for the open toed shoes over the closed toe courts, or perhaps some platformed wedges sandals? Have fun x

PhyllisWig Wed 17-May-17 15:37:42

You look great - good rack. I'd also say open toed shoes and whatever colour suits you the best (hopefully that's yellow ;))

TowerRose Wed 17-May-17 15:54:54

It looks lovely on you OP

TerfwithaNerf Wed 17-May-17 15:56:08

It looks fab!

Where's it from?!

changingShorts Wed 17-May-17 16:35:31

Go for it. I have a similar jumpsuit - although I have to use a "mega-padded-2-sizes-bigger" bra to get a decent cleavage in it. I've worn it with a red biker jacket and red heels. I suspect the yellow blazer would look good.

nina2b Wed 17-May-17 16:37:58

It looks great!

Gingerbreadmam Wed 17-May-17 16:39:43

looks fab. i vote yellow blazer too.

JeffStellingsLeftEyebrow Wed 17-May-17 16:42:04

I say YAY. Love a jumpsuit and your waist looks teeny

nina2b Wed 17-May-17 16:44:39

Nude pink blazer....!

EnidButton Wed 17-May-17 16:46:43

I'm envyenvyenvy that you don't have to wear a bra.

It looks good. I was coming on to say that jumpsuits don't flatter anyone but now I've seen the pic, you're the exception to that rule. It looks made for you.

Howlandbreathe Wed 17-May-17 16:49:58

I've just bought a jumpsuit off eBay from French connection and I love it - although I think you look better in yours than I do in mine !

Don't think it matters which blazer you choose as either will be fab

HopeYourCakeIsShit Wed 17-May-17 16:50:05

Looks great, fab norks if you don't mind me saying.

Pippin8 Wed 17-May-17 17:01:52

Omg I backed out of posting this & thought I'd deleted it blush. The email notification has just told me otherwise.....

Anyway, thanks all, I wasn't fishing for compliments, just honest opinions.
It's a cheap jersey one from ASOS @ £25. I did order a more expensive structured one with a belt but it looked crap. I had just packaged it up thinking, I'm too old & fat for this. Maybe I will keep it after all.

ragz134 Wed 17-May-17 17:02:48

I came on to say no, as they usually look bad but actually that looks Fab on you!

TerfwithaNerf Wed 17-May-17 17:03:07

Definitely keep it OP, honestly you look smoking 😀.

Is it their 'cami front jumpsuit'?

TheWeeWitch Wed 17-May-17 17:04:06

Keep! It looks great. I'm going to order one the same, you've inspired me.

LikeaSnowflake Wed 17-May-17 17:04:50

You look fantastic! I vote yellow blazer too smile

BigApple11 Wed 17-May-17 17:05:00
