No longer just a fashion fad or passing trend, flattering jumpsuits have well and truly cemented themselves in our closets. 

We’ve lost track of the amount of seasons we’ve seen jumpsuits stomping down the catwalks and they’re now a key player in dressy events such as Ascot and royal weddings. 

A good jumpsuit is as reliable as your best jeans, and makes a modern alternative to your best dresses. It’s an all-in-one outfit solution, which makes jumpsuits a brilliant addition to any capsule wardrobe. They’re practical, comfortable and stylish. Plus, statistically, they’re more likely to have pockets. Choose one in a neutral hue with short sleeves and dress it up with heels and statement jewellery for evening, or down with trainers and an oversized tote for day. 

Ease of dressing aside, the best thing about jumpsuits is there’s one to suit all body types. Pear shaped? Choose a jumpsuit with wide legs or statement shoulders to balance out your frame. Apple shaped? Make yours a wrap style with a waist-defining belt. The list goes on. 

If you're convinced but need a little more direction, then worry not. We've done the hard work for you, searching our favourite brands to find jumpsuits that suit all shapes, sizes and budgets.  

The best jumpsuits for all body types—according to our fashion editor

Best jumpsuits for apple shapes

Yes, apple body shapes can look fantastic in jumpsuits. It's all about finding the right style to define your waist and show off those amazing legs.

  • Wrap & V-neck lines draw the eye up to the bust and away from your middle.
  • Your focus should be on defining the waist & legs. Look for jumpsuits that tie at the middle or have structured waistband panels as these help pull you in.
  • Straight leg or tailored pants will compliment your slim legs.

Best jumpsuits for pear shapes

Pear shaped bodies generally have a smaller bust and waist, with wider hips and bottom. You want to look for jumpsuits that create a balance between both halves.

  • Straight or wide leg trousers are your best friend. They’ll glide and flow over your bottom half creating a streamlined shape.
  • Wide necks or off the shoulder styles work beautifully as they’ll balance you out. Seek out jumpsuits with noticeable details around the neck or shoulder, such as a bold collar or flounce.
  • Prints work especially well for pears as they draw the eye around the body, or look for styles that have a print on the top half and a plain bottom half.

Best jumpsuits for rectangle shapes

Lucky you! Rectangle body shapes are born to wear jumpsuits. Especially the boiler suit, as your slender frame can take the bulk of pockets and extra detailing. If you’re not already wearing one, then why not?!

  • Show off shoulders, collarbones and shoulders in halter neck or sleeveless styles.
  • Boiler suits look great worn slouchy, especially if you have height. Try styling a crisp white shirt, Bretton top or neckerchief underneath a boiler suit to help create shapely layers and interest.
  • Tailored trousers work well for you, however wide flowing trousers can create a beautiful feminine silhouette—so try on both and see which suits you best.

  • Straight or wider leg jumpsuits will balance out your chest.
