Let me preempt this article by saying that you will not catch me in a jumpsuit, those days are long gone. But that said, jumpsuits are the newest trend in women’s clothing.

The traditional pants and top jumpsuit  is really almost impossible for anyone to wear unless you have a willowy model shape that looks great in anything. This is the reason I’m not going to be running around in a jumpsuit anytime soon, my willowy days are long gone.

But the jumpsuit has also taken on a new form which is being referred to as the romper and this look it a little more forgiving. In fact, some things that they’re calling rompers are just dresses with elastic waistbands, but okay I’ll go with the romper term if that’s what they want. And although the romper look is a bit more forgiving you’re only going to see me wearing one of them at the beach or around the house.

The reason I’m not really interested in the jumpsuit or the romper look is because it’s unflattering on most people and it can look very sloppy. The cut of these clothes when they’re bought off the rack is such that “anyone” can wear them, so they’re too long and too baggy for many, creating a fabric pooch right at the belly, just the spot no woman wants an added pooch. And getting the legs and crotch to fit is almost impossible and let’s not even get into the full diaper look that is often created in the back.

So if you want to jump onto the bandwagon of the latest trend in women’s clothing make sure that you’re getting a fit that is flattering for your figure, which will probably take a lot of looking.
