I’ve been wanting to try the playsuit / jumpsuit style for a few months. They seem to be everywhere and the positive reviews are endless. I was still a little skeptical. Some of the ones I’ve seen on the racks look like they might only work over swimmers they’re so skimpy so I’ve taken my time in choosing the right style to lose my playsuit virginity with.
Of course I found my playsuit partner when I wasn’t even looking for a relationship! I was Christmas shopping for family and friends, perusing my local Sportsgirl accessories section when The One caught my eye. Everything about it appealed to me – the colours were blue and summery, the style had good coverage and the viscose fabric felt cool and comfy. I tried it on and didn’t hesitate to buy it about 3.5 minutes later.
I’ve been so impressed with its performance and versatility, I thought I’d share how this great piece can go from day to night to extend its wearability even further.
This is how I like to wear the playsuit during the day:
And this is how I plan to wear the playsuit at night:
I’m wearing the size 8 and I find the length of the shorts suits my vertically challenged legs. There are five press studs at the front (which are slightly fiddly after going to the bathroom but that’s the only negative) and a tie which gives the suit a little definition at the waist. I have washed it in a regular cold water wash in the washing machine. It dried quickly and doesn’t require ironing. TICK TICK TICK.
