Statement Jumpsuit

I love the idea of a jumpsuit. I try them on all the time and they usually fall short. Literally. I have such a long torso that most jumpsuits simply do not work. (There have been more than a handful that I can’t even get up and over my shoulders!) It doesn’t stop me from trying though.

J. Crew Red Jumpsuit

I decided to try this J. Crew jumpsuit in the bright red and, oh, it’s a perfect fit. I think they did such a great job creating a silhouette that would fit plenty of body types including…. long torsos! The wide legs are also really fun and cute. The first time I wore this, I went to a lunch event in the West Village and I consulted my friends via text beforehand if I could even pull this off. I was apprehensive inside my apartment, but totally was feeling myself when I was out and about.

The red is unfortunately sold out in a lot of colors. (Although I’ve noticed it’s been restocking at random, so I’m wondering if they’re shipping from stores and collecting returns. So keep your eyes peeled.)

Red not your color though? No worries, this jumpsuit is available in even more colors and prints. Which is always a good sign from J. Crew that a silhouette is flying off the shelves:

Navy Gingham (hello, obsessed) // Pink Seersucker // Blue Seersucker // Black Linen // Black & Ivory Polka Dots

As for sizing, I think it runs pretty true to size. But if you’re in between sizes, I’d consider going down.

I love jumpsuits so much, but sadly this does not work for large-chested ladies. I’m usually a size 4/6 in J.Crew and have a 32DDD chest, and every size from a 4 to an 8 fit exactly the same in the chest, super tight, no stretch. I find this problem with J.Crew a lot that most items do not work for a large bust if you are a size 6+. Anthropologie has a great selection of jumpsuits, especially in extended sizes—something J.Crew needs to take note on!!

Wish it worked for me, but it looks lovely on you!


I am about 5’9″, and I tried this on in my normal size and a size up, and both did not come close to covering my chest lol. But, I think it comes in tall, so I may have to order, and see if that one fits! I love this red on you! You have the perfect skin for this color 🙂
