The Expert Guide To The Best Jumpsuit For Your Body Shape

Jumpsuits have become a staple in modern fashion thanks to the extensive range of stylish options and flattering fits.

However, finding the right jumpsuit that flatters your body shape can be difficult, as you want the all-in-one outfit to fit just right.

That’s why we’ve created a handy guide so you can shop the right jumpsuit style for you, ensuring you’re confident in your new purchase. 

We’ve got you covered from hourglass to apple and pear to rectangular, whether you need a timeless, casual outfit or something a little more special.


Jumpsuits for hourglass figures

Hourglass figures are characterised by well-defined waists and balanced proportions, making it easy to pull off any jumpsuit style! 

Choose a jumpsuit that highlights your curves and waistline to accentuate your hourglass figure. Belted jumpsuits or jumpsuits with wrap detailing are perfect for this, as they cinch you in at the waist. Wide-legged jumpsuits will also elongate your legs for a balanced and elegant look.

The FS Collection Frill Sleeve Pleated Jumpsuit is perfect for hourglass shapes with trendy frill sleeves, an elasticated waist and wide-leg trousers to add structure for a flattering fit.

With a deep v-neck and spaghetti straps, tie waist and full-length, wide-leg trousers, the Liquorish Multicolour Abstract Print jumpsuit effortlessly accentuates an hourglass figure.

For a funky look, the Liquorish Pink And Red Abstract Print Jumpsuit has a crossover front with a tie-waist to cinch you in and adjustable straps. The wide legs and fun print make it perfect for any event.

Jumpsuits for apple shapes

Apple shapes are defined by having comparatively broader shoulders than their hips, with a larger bust and slimmer legs. Find a jumpsuit that will balance your proportions with empire waistlines and fitted trousers. 

V-neck jumpsuits will be the most flattering with a waist that pulls you in just under the bust and flowing material draping nicely over your torso. Straight-leg or tailored pants will complement slim legs to highlight your best features, whilst wide-leg trousers will balance your proportions.

The Liquorish Green Floral Jumpsuit is perfect for apple shapes, with a v-shaped neckline, empire waistline and wide-leg trousers to balance out your proportions. The fabric flows perfectly over your body for a comfortable and flattering fit.

With a tapered leg to elongate your body and a tie waist to create an hourglass figure, this Mela Navy Floral Print Wrap Over Strappy Jumpsuit is the perfect fit for apple shapes. Match with trainers for an effortlessly stylish outfit.

This Yumi Navy Satin Wrap Front Jumpsuit has a lapel-style, wrap-around neckline design, which meets the self-tie belt to pull in your waist. The cigarette-style pant will show off your shape while providing a comfortable fit.

Jumpsuits for pear shapes   

Narrower shoulders and fuller hips typically characterise pear shapes. When choosing clothing, look to balance the upper body and elongate the legs. 

Choose a jumpsuit with statement necklines to draw attention upward with strapless or off-the-shoulder styles and wide-leg or flared bottoms to add proportion to the lower body. Solid colours on top and prints or patterns on the bottom will keep you looking balanced.

With an off-the-shoulder neckline and an elasticated waist, the FS CollectionBlack Contrast Ruffle Jumpsuit creates a stunning shape. Perfect for more formal occasions, match with heels and a statement bag for an elegant look.

Crafted from a lightweight fabric, the Mela Red Tropical Leaf Print Bardot Jumpsuit has wide-leg fit culotte legs, a Bardot neckline with frill detail and a belt to suit apple shapes.

The Mela Black Daisy Print Bardot Jumpsuit is perfect for pear shapes with wide-leg fit culotte pants, a Bardot neckline with frill detail and a tie belt. Pair with sandals or trainers for an effortless everyday style.

Jumpsuits for rectangular style

A rectangular style is defined by a straight up and down silhouette with shoulders and hips of similar width, little waist definition and long legs.

Choose jumpsuits that either lean into that rectangular aesthetic or create curves, depending on your mood. 

If you want to create curves, show off shoulders with halterneck styles that draw the eye down the body. Boiler suit jumpsuits are also a great choice, either with front chest pockets to add curves and wide-leg or tailored styles to play with proportions.

The beautiful Mela Navy Cross Over Halter Neck Jumpsuit has long, wide legs and a tie waist to create a stunning silhouette. The crossover halterneck provides a stunning neckline and fastens in the back with 2 concealed buttons. Wear with heels and a clutch bag for the perfect outfit for weddings or events.

Off-the-shoulder jumpsuits draw the eye to one side of the body thanks to their asymmetrical design, adding shape and balance to rectangular shapes. The FS Collection One Shoulder Polka Dot Jumpsuit is a perfect example of this with a stunning navy and white polka dot design that can be dressed up or dressed down.

With a front zip,  cap sleeve and collar that adds a utilitarian flare to the overall look, this YUMI Black Zip Jumpsuit With Belt creates a beautiful shape. The cigarette-style trouser brings the look together and flatters your lower half. Add trainers for a relaxed outfit choice, or dress up with a pop of colour in your accessories.

Jumpsuits for plus size

Plus-size clothing is designed to perfectly fit curves, catering from sizes 16 to 28. Choose clothing that accentuates your best features. 

Look for jumpsuits tailored to fit your body shape, emphasising your waist with belts and elongating your torso with v-neck or wrap-style necklines.

Remember, plus-size bodies will also fit into hourglass, pear, apple and rectangular shapes, so consult the rest of the guide to find the best fit for you.

Jumpsuits for petite

Petite is described as being 5’3” or under. With a shorter frame, those with petite bodies will still fit into an hourglass, apple, pear or rectangular shape. 

For petite women, a jumpsuit can really elongate the frame as the all-in-one shape forms an unbroken vertical line for the illusion of extra height. 

Stick to tailored styles to avoid looking swamped with slim or straight-leg trousers to make your legs look longer.
