THE PETITE PEAR'S GUIDE TO HOLIDAY DRESSES: BELTED JUMPSUIT
Style Cliff Notes
Extended Style Notes
What I loved…
- Belted – One of my favorite features of this jumpsuit is that it’s belted. I love that it defines my waist, which is the narrowest part of my pear-shaped body. Since this jumpsuit defines my waist, it lets me show off my curves.
- V-neckline – I love the v-neckline of this jumpsuit because it shows some skin, but it’s not too revealing. As a petite pear, this is one of my go-to necklines because it complements my small bust.
- Petite-sizing – Since this jumpsuit has a more dressed up feel, I wanted to be able to wear it with heels. This jumpsuit is the perfect length to wear with heels and doesn’t drag on the ground either. (Inseam = 30’’)
- Affordable – This jumpsuit is very wallet friendly and it’s an easy way to try out the velvet trend this season. (Full disclosure - I used to work on the team that managed this brand so that's how I first learned about it. I really came to love it because they have on trend items that are also affordable.)
**Size note: If you’re in between sizes, I would recommend ordering one smaller and one larger size to compare the fit between both. I ordered a small and a medium. The small ended up fitting me better in the bust, but was a little more snug through the hips.
Bust = 33’’
Center front drop = 8’’
Waist (elastic) = 26’’
Inseam = 30’’
Front rise = 10’’
