I love jumpsuits and rompers. However, there comes a time in every girls life, where you realize, all jumpsuits are not created equal. As I’m sure I mentioned before, I’m 5’10 with a thicker thigh. I won’t wear a majority of jumpsuits, because they are too short or waaaay too short. Some hang too low, and others give you a camel toe. No more rhyming, I promise.
First, I went to the brick and mortars. Better known as actual stores, to try on a few pieces. I found that H&M had the best strapless rompers. My bone to pick with them is that the rompers run really small. I’m not a fan of having to wear a size 12, when I’m normally a size 8. The jumpsuits were still a little too short. I found a couple of jumpsuits at stores like New York & Company and The Limited, but they weren’t exactly my style. I didn’t do myself any favors by going into Saks off 5th. I fall in love every time I walk in this store. Only to get my heart crushed by prices i’m not willing to pay. I found a very nice black jumpsuit by BCBG Maxazria for $105. I really didn’t want another black garment especially for that price.
Next, I had to do an online hunt. The problem with shopping online is that looks can be deceiving. You have to read all the details before purchasing. Even from brands you trust. If you’re looking at a model wearing a size 2, there is a big chance it’s not going to look the same on you. Always pay attention to measurements. When shopping on sites like Ebay or Etsy, ask the seller anything you’re unsure of. It is such a pain to wait a week to get an item only to find out it doesn’t fit.
Asos.com is usually my first choice to find anything I want related to fashion. The site has clothes that specifically fit tall girls. Including, longer inseams and sleeves. They also carry brands that are good quality and affordable. I love that. However, I couldn’t find what I was looking for.Next, I went to the Free People website. I know its a brand I always have to try on, but everything is so pretty and whimsical. Finally, after exploring some other sites like, Topshop, Nastygal, and Missguided. I stumbled across Lulus.com. After a couple a minutes of exploring, there it was. The line from the song “Sex and Candy”, always pops up in my head when I see that perfect piece. “Like double cherry pie, there she was, like disco super fly”. It wasn’t black. It was sexy. It was basic enough that I could accessorize it to my liking. The number one reason I choose it was because, It had a 33’inseam. YAAAAASSS! It arrived a few days later and my search was officially over. Now, I have to figure out where to wear it.
