I really like these and naturally they look very good on young girls with slim figures. I am 44 years old, a size 12 and my body is very toned because I run and work out in the gym at least twice a week.

So do you think I could get away with wearing one or will it be a case of mutton dressed as lamb?hmm

I await your honest and frank

i thought for a baby to! i can't imagine any play suit looking good on an adult and i have seen them but i just think yuck when i see them

I like this one.

MarthaFarquhar Sat 30-May-09 19:22:28

I'm sure you could carry one off with that figure. what about this one?
I would, but sadly, in it I would look like a sausage bursting out of its casing.

I think it's lovely.

I think if you accessorised it up it could like really good and very chic.

But it you wore it with crocs and a changing bag it would look awful and like something you'd rummaged out at a jumble sale grin

I was looking for one with shorts Martha but thanks.

I was thinking about wearing it wedge sandals to provide height. I think it would look quite chic too!

i promise you all playsuits will be a "what were we thinking" fashion moment in a few years' time.

years' weeks'

I can just picture you Spokette, and I think you would look amazing it that outfit. I am a bit envy though, cos at 39 and slightly bigger than a size 12 there is no way on Earth I could carry that off! Wedges would be good.

I think it would look great on holiday, not sure about in normal life.

Definitely with wedges too.

Do you have to take the whole thing off to go to the loo?

Its pretty but i think best suited to younger women.

Although you've definitely got the figure for it by the sounds of things - not sure that it wouldn't look a little muttony - sorrry.

I would only wear it on a hot summery day or on holiday. Just don't want to look like a mutton!

millenniumfalcon Sat 30-May-09 19:39:42

face it, teenagers can get away with all kinds of ridiculous outfits in the name of fashion cos they'd look great in a binbag. how do you look in a binbag spokette? grin if it's anything less than fabulous you've got no chance in a shorts playsuit, sorry.
