Jumpsuit Wearing 101

It has been a while since I've worn a jumpsuit.  I was in jumpsuit overload, so I decided to take a break from them.  Now Jumpsuit Judy is back, and I wanted to share some tips on wearing jumpsuits. I've heard so many women say that they are intimidated by jumpsuits.  I can understand that because there is a lot of pressure on the top and bottom to fit correctly.  A lot of us aren't the same size on the top and bottom, so that is an understandable deterrent.  Here are a few tips that will help you purchase your next jumpsuit:

  • Fit the biggest portion of your body first. 
  • Check to see if the jumpsuit has stretch. A lot of time that will allow you to size down one size and hopefully fit the other half of your body better
  • Tailor! I don't do this for every jumpsuit I own, but the ones I really love and that structure to them I will tailor down the top half to fit my upper body. 
  • Petite ladies can wear jumpsuits too; you just need to hem your pants. 
  • Pick the right shapewear.  Shapewear is a personal decision, and if you choose to wear it, you should be wearing the right one.  For me, when where jumpsuits, I slide on footless tights or a capri shapewear.  The shorts shapewear will give you the bubble leg. 
  • If you aren't wearing shapewear, find heavy fabrics.  
  • The key to wearing jumpsuits is the fit.  If it doesn't fit your body right then, it won't look good. 
Style Notes:  This jumpsuit came from Rebdolls, and I'm wearing it in a 5x.  Rebdolls can run small, and this size worked perfectly.
