Yes, believe it or not, I finally have a plus size fashion post up for you. Better late than never I think. This is one that I have meant to post for a bit, but never had time. It feels really important to me to share this one with you, just because of how much trouble I have had finding a jumpsuit that fits.
If you too are a jumpsuit lover and over 5’4″, you probably realize how challenging find one that fits can be. I am 5′ 8″, and while I don’t think of that as exceptionally tall, most of my height seems to be in the area that affects jumpsuit fit the most. Add in being extra curvy, and it’s not easy to find a jumpsuit that works for your body. I have even tried a fair share of jumpsuits on, and shared them here on the blog.
Before we take a look at the actual jumpsuit, let me start in my usual way and share my sizing info. If you are new to the blog, I try to do this with outfit posts because I think it can be helpful for you to judge whether the items will fit you, and what size might fit you best. I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant or Torrid. As I said previously I am 5′ 8″. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″. And I wear a 40DDD bra.
Today we are looking at the Black Floral Off The Shoulder Challis Jumpsuit from Torrid. They only have a few sizes left of this in the clearance section, so if its something you are interested in don’t hesitate.
I am wearing my usual size for Torrid, being a 2. And I have it paired with some Sketchers Rumblers Wedge Heel Sandals. If you are looking for a comfortable heeled sandal, look no further.
Here is what you really need to know about this jumpsuit. It is meant to be worn off the shoulders, however as you can see it can easily be adjusted to wear over the shoulders without looking odd. And since it has a flounce ruffle all the way around, you can still get some arm coverage if that is what you are looking for.
Yes, it has pockets. I am not typically a pockets fan, and I know that makes me the odd person out. But this jumpsuit has pockets actually made in a way that I don’t mind.
And most important to me was the fit. As I mentioned before I have a really difficult time finding jumpsuits in recent years that actually fits my height. Since most of my height is in the stride, and I have a booty, most jumpsuits end up giving me a frontal wedgie. Not really a good look or comfortable. This jumpsuit however is a perfect fit.
In addition, I love all the details. The print is bright and colorful. I love and off the shoulder look. And the flounce ruffle gives it a slightly more feminine edge. Even the empire waist is a perfect fit for me. And to top it off, the fabric itself is very soft and comfortable to wear.
Now, I recognize that this may not be everyone’s taste. And since they are out of some of the sizes, I did want to point out a few of the other jumpsuits Torrid has that may interest you. While I have not tried these on myself, the way these are structured looks promising for my fellow tall girls out there.
Now I want to hear from all of you. Are you a tall girl? Have you found a perfect fitting jumpsuit? Share it with us in the comments.
