Elvi Jumpsuit

Top of my sale wish list this Christmas was the absolutely stunningly chic jumpsuit by Elvi!

I’d seen it a few months ago on Mrs Bebe’s blog and knew I had to have it – so when it came on sale I snapped it straight up.

I have been looking for a jumpsuit suitable for both work and play for some time now and the tapered trousers, cinched waist and plunging neckline make this a very versatile piece.

For work, I would pin the neckline so that it is a little less plunging but come evening I’d remove the pin and delight in the plunge!

I hummed and hah’d over size but settled for a size 18 – I’m biggest across my hips and bum and jumpsuits aren’t as forgiving in this area as a dress.

I’m glad I chose the 18 as I do feel the jumpsuit comes up just a tad bit on the small side – there is no stretch in the hips or trousers so if you are larger in those areas then I definitely suggest sizing up.

The waist was a little baggy on me but can be easily cinched in with the silver belt loops placed on each side of the waist .

On appearances, this jumpsuit fits me like a dream.  I love how it looks,  I feel chic, sophisticated, playful and a bit like a Hollywood Siren from the Golden Age.

Unfortunately, there is one problem – it’s not long enough for me. I’m 5ft10 and long in the body which means that this jumpsuit is more than a little uncomfortable in certain regions!

Yes – it lifts my bum and makes it look great – but I don’t think I could wear this for more than half an hour without wanting to cry from discomfort.

Gutted doesn’t quite cover how I feel about this – I love this bloody thing and I look just as I dreamt I would in this! It is so very well made (something that I am quickly coming to associate with all of Elvi’s clothes) and just so damn stylish.

Unfortunately, it has been sent back – I may have wept a small tear when folding it back into the returns parcel.

I would like to throw in a huge recommendation here – if you are under 5ft10 then please, please, please go buy this so I can live vicariously through you.  Tweet or IG me photos and I can drool over the sheer beauty!

The jumpsuit is on sale for just £39 and comes in size 14 – 26. You can also get 20% off if you sign up to their mailing list!
