When I was in high school I was a member of a Spanish dance group, and one of the dances we performed called for a black jumpsuit. It wasn’t just any black jumpsuit. It was a shiny, halter neck piece with an open back that looked like it was pulled straight out of J.Lo’s closet. So, naturally, I was thrilled when I was asked to be a part of that number. What girl wouldn’t want a little Jenny from the Block moment?
My excitement turned to horror the second I slipped that damn costume on. I’ll spare you the photographic evidence, but trust me when I say that it did absolutely nothing to flatter my curvier figure. Because of this, I was slightly disgusted when I noticed black jumpsuits trending again. Thankfully, I now know how to dress for my body.
Even better? The fact that retailers are finally starting to get that women are not “one size fits all”. When I came up with the concept for this post, I thought it was going to take me forever to find a black jumpsuit that I felt confident wearing…let along posting pictures of myself in! To my delight, that was not the case at all. This one is from Francesca’s Collections, but unfortunately it’s currently sold out (this is another cute option). Throughout my hunt, though, I found jumpsuits made specifically for petite, full-figured, and tall women. If you love the look, I’ve linked a bunch of them below to spare you some time.
So, without any further ado… here are 24 black jumpsuit options made for every type of body! Let me know what you think, if you find something you love, and/or what types of posts you’d like to see from me in the future in the comments below. Xo
