I’ve tried on a number of jumpsuits over the years, but it wasn’t until this navy style from Lela Rose’s Pearl line that I felt like I was a jumpsuit person. As a girl with hips, jumpsuits often cut too narrow on me and hug in unflattering places. As a tall girl, they also are often too short waisted or the legs are too short/cropped on me. Needless to say, it’s been a struggle to find the right fit! I have discovered the best jumpsuit silhouette for my body type is one that is fitted at the waist and wide in the hips/legs – and this Pearl by Lela Rose jumpsuit was just that. It’s currently available on their site, but quite a few sizes have sold out already – don’t wait to shop!

In celebration of my jumpsuit discovery, here’s a roundup of chic jumpsuit styles for summer! All of these would be great for fun dinners, nights out, parties and weddings this season:

For sizing: I tried on the jumpsuit at the Dallas trunkshow, and they only had a 6 – it was too big in the bodice, but I was worried going down to a 4 might make it hug my hips. I ended up ordering the six and just having the top taken in for a perfect fit! If you’re not curvy, I’d say this jumpsuit runs a little big.
