Gah! just received the Hush Tyler jumpsuit in XL in black and was convinced it was going to be the perfect dress it up/dress it down outfit for my upcoming trip to New York. I could wear it with a biker jacket and Superga's in the day, and dress it up with a long necklace and heels for the night.
Nope. Not going to happen. It arrived really badly creased, ok, so not a deal breaker, but not ideal to be packed in a suitcase. The round neck does nothing for me huge norks, plus the top sleeves are an odd length, like a capped T shirt sleeve, but to the elbows?? It also has a pocket on the bum! Really, who wants to draw attention to their arse in a jersey jumpsuit?
What really bugs me is I tried on their summer black jumpsuit in John Lewis and loved it....and din't bloody buy it! I've been stalking Ebay, and have contacted Customer Services at Hush but don't hold out much hope.
So, can you help me?? I need to source another one, preferably for under about 80 pounds. I'm 5 foot 1, size 16/18, big boobs and hour glass shape with a defined waist, quite good bum but chunky thighs. Like I said ideally want one that is not just for evenings only, but would look good with trainers etc.
Putting my trust in you girls out there...any suggestions??
Have you looked at Me+Em? Their black jersey jumpsuit is in the sale for £35. I bought it in the summer and it packs well, hangs beautifully and I dressed it up and down. The neckline is flattering for a large bust and sizes 12 upwards are still available.
Thank you ladies. I have ordered the Me and Em one. The La Redoute one is beautiful, but maybe not so easy to dress down? Similarly with the Monsoon ones. I have ordered a couple from Debenhams and House of Fraser too, so fingers crossed I have a few parcels arriving in the next few days.....--plus the rose gold Super Ga's I seem to have ordered from Amazon--
I've got an ASOS wrap jumpsuit which I took a punt on for a summer holiday easy to throw on outfit - it is super flattering and easy to wear. Was about thirty quid. Can't find the exact one online but plenty of plain black jersey type ones still available.
Haha, sorry Anlaf. I must admit I tried on the Hush jumpsuit to show my DH and DS (17) last night and they both laughed!! Words like "romper suit" were used! The cheek of it! I am convinced it will be the perfect item of clothing! Still awaiting my deliveries....but i think I will check out the Baukjen one again with that money off code....
OMG girls, most of my parcels came and I've just spent half an hour trying them on! eleanorofaquitane you little beauty, the Me & Em one was perfect! It was the first one I tried on and I had a feeling it was the one but dutifully tried the rest on, but there was no need. Bargain as well at under 40 pounds! It's a beautifully heavy jersey, a lovely wrap top, and even a little black popper to pop the wrap. I think I may resew that a bit lower to have a hint of a cleavage. It's absolutely fabulous, I know I will wear it with my gold, silver or rose gold Superga's, a big sacrf and a biker jacket in the day, and leave the popper open, a big necklace an heels in the night. I am so please. Can you tell? I now need to look at absolutely everything else on the Me & Em website. Oh and think it needs a belt to go with it too, to define the waist, so I'm off to look at belts online now. Anlaf have your Baukjen ones arrived? I withheld from ordering those as they were just that bit too expensive, but they looked fab! I look glorious and want you to too!
PS I haven't shown the philistine DH or DS2 yet, but I don't feckin care what they say. I love it! Stamps foot!
Yay! I'm so pleased. I don't bother with the popper as the fabric is very well behaved. If it's any comfort, my DH and DC are brutal about giving feedback and they were v complimentary about it. And yes to a belt it does finish it off.
Ooooh, even better, I just went back to the website to look for more things and saw that this jumpsuit was reduced from 119 pounds to 35! I love it even more now! Just ordered 2 belts from Next! I'm so glad it's well behaved eleanor I would hate to have a naughty one!
Def think it needs a belt with it, but I love the quality. It's actually quite hard to get into, as there is so much lovely drapey jersey material in the top you have to sort of borrow through past it to get to the trousers part, iyswim.
Oh I just wanted to recommend something similar from Esprit, also wrap front. Amazon has it, I have the same in blue and it's very flattering. But for some reason I can't post when I copy the link.. Try searching for Esprit black jumpsuit on amazon, you will see it, item number 997EO1L800
