I’m usually the last person to jump on board with fashion trends but when I find one that I like – jumpsuits, for example – I hold on and don’t let go. Luckily it looks like jumpsuits are going to be in another year!
I used my Try.com membership (Update: Try.com has gone out of business!) to test out some jumpsuits from ASOS like the one I wore for Thanksgiving and New Years Eve. The number one complaint I have with them – and you’ve vented about, too – is the length in the torso is never long enough. So far, the three I’ve posted about have all made the cut for my 5’7″ frame. There were others in my package that didn’t fair as well, including one jumpsuit that didn’t even have a zipper to get into. #poordesign

Tips for Buying Jumpsuits
From my years of thrifting and buying rompers/jumpsuits, I’ve come up with a few tricks to finding the perfect fit.
• Search out garments with an oversized cut. Lots of my vintage rompers are generously sized!
• Size up. You can always get it tailored to your body later.
• Choose an item with adjustable straps like my thrifted denim overalls. That way you get a custom fit without spending a lot!
• Always, always, always try on. I would never blindly buy jumpsuits or rompers like this from online but thankfully Try.com helped me out. (This isn’t sponsored, I’m just really grateful for their service.) I try to stick with shopping in person but utilizing this service really opens up a lot of options for me! ASOS is a good site to try from, as well, since they copy their in-house designs in straight, plus, petite, tall, and maternity sizes. There’s literally something for everyone!
My greatest bit of advice is not to give up. If I’ve learned anything working at a clothing store, it’s that we never give up when a customer comes in with a clothing problem. There is always a solution if you use a little creativity!
