The Best Jumpsuits for Every Body Type
Finally, it feels like jumpsuits are getting the wardrobe credibility they deserve. Surprisingly versatile (not to mention flattering), onesies are showing up more and more in the rosters of our favorite brands and we couldn’t be happier about it. Who doesn’t love a piece you can literally throw on and go? (Dresses shouldn’t get all the glory.) The only hiccup is...fit. If you've had dressing-room nightmares in the past, read on to find the best jumpsuit for your bod.
If You’re Tall: Try a Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
Congrats! If you’re a lady of a certain stature, your frame can handle a decent amount of fabric. That means a wide-leg option looks great on you. Just be cautious of hemlines. An inseam of 35 inches (or longer) will ensure proper coverage down to your heels, or you could just beat it at its own game and go with an ankle-cropped culotte.
If You’re Petite: Try A Slim, Cropped Jumpsuit
A smaller figure can easily get swallowed up by too much material, so that’s why you want to stick to slimmer silhouettes that skim your shape and a tapered hemline that prevents fabric bunching at the ankles. For visual lengthening, make sure the color or pattern is continuous from top to bottom.
If You’re Pear-Shaped: Try an Off-the-Shoulder Jumpsuit
If you’ve got hips that don’t lie, no need to hide them—just balance them out by flashing some collarbone. As for the bottom, try for a straight- or wide-leg silhouette that skims your hips in the most flattering way.
If You Have a Large Chest: Try a V-Neck Jumpsuit
With a little more up top, your instinct might be to cover up, but the secret is actually to let the girls breathe. A (not-too-deep) V-neck flatters the décolletage and actually minimizes your bust by not projecting a swath of fabric. A defined waist and wider leg will balance your proportions, and bonus points to any details (likes stripes or hardware) that draw the eye to your waist.
If You Have a Small Chest: Try a Ruffled Jumpsuit
When your shape is on the straighter side, creating curves is easier than you think. A simple ruffle detail up top adds volume in the best way.
