Outfit of the Day: Jumpsuit

Prior to this exact moment, have I worn a jumpsuit? No. In the name of Gloria Gaynor, no no no.

And yet, I seek them out. I add them to my style boards and mentally pack them for events. Like when I’m on the back of a motor bike in Florence or making out with a guy who kinda looked like Ray Liotta if you squint your eyes a little in Vegas.

I bit the bullet and ordered one; ignoring that maybe they weren’t practical or flattering for plus size women. It arrived and I scoffed opening the box, unrolling the slinky fabric and pulling it up over my body like a wrestling singlet.

“This is ridiculous,” I thought. “It will probably give me a camel toe.”

I padded over to the mirror and sighed. I was billowy and light and so very sexy. It hid my lumps and flattered my waist and my boobs perfectly. I was part Sharon Stone in Casino and part Rachel McAdams in whatever movie has her glossy lipped and wandering about a farmer’s market or cliche small town festival.

Plus Size Jumpsuit

And to answer the big question, how hard is it to go to the bathroom while wearing it? I’ll answer your question with a question. Ever pull down shapewear to pee? It’s infinity percent easier than that.

    You look fabulous! So much so that I want to order one. But 1) where do you wear such a thing? And 2) the bra thing could be an issue for me. That porcelain plunge bra doesn’t come in my size. We reeeeaaalllly need to go into the business of making big girl bras. What does the back look like?

      I am pretty dressed up in this picture, it seriously looks just as awesome with some chunky turquoise jewelry and flip flops for a day out.

      The back is completely sold, no low back or anything.

      And in terms of the bra, YOU control how low you want this to come. I plunged it because, well, I love a morning plunge.

    I felt like I had to keep my top part from hitting the floor or touching the toilet because what if a little pee got on there and then I did war a belt with mine but I totally loved how I looked in it. I agree that it was easy to dress up or down and I am loving how you look in this!

    I bought the bullet & ordered it……….I have a wedding weekend out of town coming up and I’m thinking this would be perfect for the wedding eve cocktail party. Now I’m freaking out it will be too long on me because I’m only 5’6″, but that’s what that magic hem tape is for.

    Hahaha your description is perfect conversation I had in my head last week as I ordered two of them on line. I’m hopeful as well. I have been free of my cover my arms at all costs tyranny for over a year now and look forward to rocking the jumpsuit. Thanks for the inspiration. V
