5 Tips When Shopping For Jumpsuits For A Pear Shaped Body

For years I wouldn’t buy jumpsuits because I always thought they didn’t look good on girls with hips and a booty. It took me a while to figure out these 5 important factors to think about so that I didn’t have to stand on the side lines anymore. I too could look like a boss in a jumpsuit just like all the tall skinny girls around me! You can too!

1. Size

Just because you can wear a size small top doesn’t mean your jumpsuit should be that size. You need to size for the bottom half first and worry about the top second. If you are wearing it too small on the bottom it will bunch up and never sit right.

2. Straps

Adjustable Straps are your friend! If you went up a size on the bottom the straps being adjustable will help you maneuver the top to fit you right. However, if they aren’t, don’t be afraid you head to your local seamstress and get the straps and everything else you need taken in to fit you correctly. This will be the difference between an okay outfit and an outfit that looks like it was made for you!

3.Length

Speaking of adjusting, make sure the bottom half lays right. If your pants are too long they will bunch up on the bottom and make you look even shorter instead of giving you a long lean look that a jumpsuit should give.

4. Material

Material will make all the difference for you apple bottom girls! Something with a little stretch is perfect in this case. Just like the jumpsuit above! Even though its denim it stretches to fit your body better. Again, be careful not to get anything with stretch too tight or it wont look flattering either. If you end up getting anything light weight be sure they have an underlining as well, you don’t want any peekaboo’s.

5. Waist

When it comes to curves, accentuating them correctly can take you from looking like your wearing a potato sack to looking like you are walking the runway. Finding a jumpsuit that accentuates your waist will help give you that sexy hourglass shape. Helpful hint..If you found one that doesn’t adding a belt will help draw it in.

Yummie for Every Generation

A mothers love is undeniable, unbreakable, and forever. I am lucky enough to have a mother who is not only the best mom ever but my very best friend. She lifts me up when I am feeling discouraged or being too hard on myself but also tells me when I’m being a huge pain in the booty! Just like most mother daughter duos we get in our share of fights, but we move on in about 2 seconds flat never holding a grudge just knowing our love is stronger than any disagreement we could ever have. She has taught me to love myself for who I am, for the body and beauty that God has given me. To cherish it, take care of it and love it. Knowing these importance’s in life we take care of ourselves, we eat right and we try to wear the most flattering clothing to feel great about ourselves. This year I started wearing Yummie for the first time and the one word I have to describe it is, OBSESSED!

Yummie understands a woman, her needs, and helps us to love our bodies at no cost. Comfort is key and they give it to us. I have tried many body suits in my years and they by far give the most comfort. They feel like butter and have a knit shaping panel around your tummy that helps give a light compression and hold you in. They also have an outlast temp. control that helps regulate your body heat!! Storing it when you are too hot and releasing it when you are cold! I love wearing them with jeans or leggings for a casual look or with a shirt or high waisted dress pant for a dressy look! I promise you wont be sorry about buying any of their amazing products! Check them all out here. Swipe down for Mama Helen’s trick to keeping clothing color longer, and links to our Yummie bodysuits and jeans!

Tip from Mom on keeping colors longer: Add salt to your wash the first time wearing them, this helps the color set in and will help from fading.

10 Count Guide To Picking The Perfect Outfit Everytime!

When I was fresh out of high school I was crowned “Dairy Princess” of my hometown. This meant I traveled around educating people about the importance of milk and dairy products with the Real California Milk Advisory. Right after getting my sash and crown they shipped me out of town to learn all there is about milk, speaking and etiquette. I learned many things on that trip, but the two big things I still use today are, the 10 counting steps to picking the perfect outfit, and dinner etiquette. I know you are here for all the fashion 411 so lets dive right in!

Each piece of clothing, hair accessory, hat, bag, jewelry, shoes are all 1 point. If the item has a print, sequins or anything that makes it more than a neutral piece it is 2 points. The etiquette class explained to never go over 10 points, but also not to go under 5, at the risk of being a bit boring and not having that sparkle factor.

  • As shown above the green dress with flowers would be 2 points.

  • The hat would be 1 point.

  • The bag could be 1 or 2 points depending on what you wear it with. If I wore it with the dress I would say 1 point.

I am a bit basic as I’ve gotten older so I mostly use this when I am about to leave the house and want to make sure I have enough points. When they first taught me this method I had a print skirt, tiara, sash and a sequined sweater among other things. Lets just say I was well above 10! Here are a few examples of my everyday outfits and how I count them!

It’s always fun to push the boundaries and make your style uniquely yours! This is my way of helping ensure I have classic, beautiful outfits in many different styles! I Hope this helps you in your evolution of your own fashion game….and never forget to do so following proper etiquette!
