A Guide to Wearing Jumpsuits for Plus Size Women
The jumpsuit is officially having a style resurgence and, thanks to Royal Ascot’s decision to finally allow women to wear jumpsuits in the royal enclosure this year, we predict that you’ll see them everywhere for spring 2017.
The good news is that curvy girls look great in jumpsuits! No matter what you’re size or shape, there is the perfect jumpsuit out there to flatter your figure and show off your curves. Not sure how to style yours? Here is the quintessential guide to wearing jumpsuits for plus size women:
Choose the Right Fabric
This is one garment where the quality of the fabric is really important, and picking the right material will determine whether your jumpsuit experiment is a glorious success or a total failure! The key is to choose a fabric with great structure, so that it will hug and hold your curves in all the right places. Jersey is a great choice because it is breathable, will skim the body, and create a beautiful shape. If you’re looking for something a little more fitted then why not turn to spandex, which will stretch around your curves and create the perfect nod to the nostalgic jumpsuits of the 1970s.
Pick the Right Prints
Prints are everywhere for 2017 so you definitely shouldn’t shy away from a printed jumpsuit style, but it’s essential that you choose the right one. Whilst florals are always popular, an all-over bright bold floral could look overwhelming. Instead, experiment with bold block colours, and bohemian vintage patterns. You could also tap into this season’s athleisurewear trend by experimenting with vertical stripe detailing, with is both stylish and figure flattering.
Cinch in Your Waist
Don’t be frightened to choose a jump suit that will draw attention to your shape and cinch in your waist. This will help to emphasis the narrowest part of your body, and create a wonderful hourglass shape. If your jumpsuit doesn’t have a cinched in waist already then why not experiment with a belt worn either on your hips, or on or above your natural waist? Many curvy women shy away from styles that draw attention to their tummies in this way, but actually this will help to show off your curves and create an enviable shape that will attract attention for all the right reasons.
Finally, it’s time to accessorise your jumpsuit: the only real limit here is your imagination! For evening wear team your one piece with heels to take advantage of their leg lengthening properties: a bright and bold contrasting colour would look great. For more casual day events opt for sandals embellished with a little bling to inject some glamour into your look, whilst still ensuring that you are both comfortable and on trend.
