Five years ago I discovered that jumpsuits can look really good on women with fuller busts, so when someone on BBP posted this find just as a Nordstrom sale was kicking off, and I couldn’t resist giving it a try. (There are no affiliate links in this post.)
The 12P fit perfectly, but there was something meh about–too much of a solid block of color, perhaps? Notice how just adding a necklace on top improved it. It would probably help to shorten the pant length as well. The pleated, flared bottoms simply don’t give me the sleek look that I was looking for.
Unlike the BBP contributor, I would NOT feel comfortable wearing this without a bra, and I’m wearing the very comfortable Wacoal Red Carpet strapless in US 34H in these photos. On the other hand, I would consider going braless in a tighter bodice.
You can see below that the neckline is a little lower than the bra line. Usually I would simply shorten the straps, but doing so with this garment would bring the underbust seam too high. As it is, it miraculously falls exactly below the bust–no boob bifurcation.
Here’s a closeup of the amazing bust dart detail. It extends diagonally from the side (where it also meets the underbust seam) to the neckline.
Here are two more details that support the idea of going braless in this bust-friendly jumpsuit.
Besides the great details, the fabric had a wonderful weight and hand to it.
The jumpsuit in today’s post is now only available in sizes 0-4 on Nordstrom Rack (also in navy) for $42, so someone else must be happily wearing my return. I’m super impressed with the quality and fit of this Gal Meets Glam garment, so I will be keeping my eye on this brand going forward. If you’ve tried it, please share your experiences!
