Translated, jumpsuit means nothing more than "jump suit" - since it is a continuous cut, i.e. the upper and lower parts are firmly sewn together. For this reason they are also called Onesie. Admittedly, this fact makes any one-piece a more than impractical piece of clothing when you have to go to the toilet. Nevertheless, many women accept this weak point, since jumpsuits are one thing above all: comfortable. This applies to airy models in summer as well as to cozy onesies in winter. We present various models to you.
If you want to create a casual outfit for your free time, this works best with a short-sleeved onesie in combination with sneakers and a denim jacket. In the warm summer months, light, airy materials (e.g. cotton blends or jersey fabrics) are particularly comfortable to wear, and linen especially on hot days. Floral patterns, strapless models and overalls with short legs and thin spaghetti straps are also popular this year – in combination with strappy sandals.
There are also elegant jumpsuits for festive occasions (such as a wedding or company party): whether black or blue, red or gray - you can't go far wrong with a plain-colored model. One-piece suits made of flowing fabrics such as silk or viscose look particularly chic. In combination with glittering sequins or lace appliqués you will be an eye-catcher. High heels or peep-toes would go well with this, if you prefer flat shoes, ballerinas or wedge sandals also go well.
The practical thing about jumpsuits is that they are suitable for every figure type. There are models with short and long legs, with short and long sleeves, with high and low necklines (front and back), wide and thin straps - in short, there is a suitable cut for almost every woman:
Small women often have a short torso, meaning jumpsuits with a short cut are particularly suitable here. This makes the arms look longer, but alternatively they can also be rolled up slightly. Above all, make sure that the waistband sits as high as possible so that the legs look longer. High heels further underline the effect.
Don't: Avoid wide cuts, as they would compress your body.
Tall women can wear wide cuts particularly well, and a little more figure-hugging if they want to show off their body skilfully. If you would like to visually stretch your legs, a combination of jumpsuit, waist belt and high heels is ideal. If you want to do the opposite, patterned models and flat shoes are recommended.
Curvy women can also wear jumpsuits well. If you want to hide your stomach, the top should be a little looser than the pants and should be patterned. On the other hand, if you want to distract from your legs, the pants should be slightly flared - and the upper body should be tight-fitting. Buttocks and hips are caressed with loose models. Jumpsuits in a wrap look stretch the figure.
Narrow women with a delicate figure can wear jumpsuits that contain small extras such as fringes, flounces or ruffles. They conjure up feminine curves - the same applies to models with a waist belt or flared legs. And here, too, onesies with a wrap look are recommended, as they emphasize the body in the right places.
Depending on the materials a jumpsuit is made of, you may need to be careful when washing it so the fabric doesn't warp or even shrink. With the following care tips you are on the safe side:
