What features make a jumpsuit flattering?

You might be intimidated by jumpsuits, but they can be hugely flattering to wear. Many jumpsuits are cut in a comfy, figure-skimming style, with bonus features such as adjustable arm straps and waist ties.

Can a jumpsuit be worn to a wedding?

Jumpsuits aren’t just for casual occasions. In fact, the right outfit can work as a striking alternative to a dress for a wedding. Look for a jumpsuit in a luxurious fabric like silk, or with added detailing like interesting straps or embellishment to keep this item formalwear-appropriate. 

What can you wear with a jumpsuit?

Jumpsuits are incredibly versatile, as they can be worn like a dress, or as an alternative to jeans and a top. A good jumpsuit can be dressed down with sandals or trainers, and also styled for the evening with heels or boots and nice jewellery. 

What is the best women’s jumpsuit to buy?

A good jumpsuit should be comfy, flattering, easy to layer and affordable. For all these reasons, as well as Mumsnetters’ reviews, we’ve chosen YESNO Loose Dungarees as the best jumpsuit to buy. 

How we chose our recommendations 

Because we know that there’s nothing like a real recommendation from a real fashionista, we first headed to the Mumsnet forums to find out which jumpsuits were rated by stylish Mumsnet users. We compiled a list of the best jumpsuits for women they loved for fit, practicality, style and value-for-money.

We then did some research across the wider web, looking at which jumpsuits were recommended by fashion experts and bloggers - and what customer reviews said about them too. 

Having collated all that information, we picked the best jumpsuits that we thought would make the best buys.
