This outfit is part one of a two part post… How to Wear White Peek a Boo Culotte Jumpsuit

How to Wear a White Jumpsuit, over 40.

Lets be honest here….
There are 4 challenging things going on with this white jumpsuit.

1. It’s White.

White is notoriously difficult to wear, especially if you are a dirt magnet or clumsy (like me).
White can also be see through (undies or fleshy bits on display are never good!)
White has a bad reputation for being unflattering, and visually widening.

2.It has Culotte legs.

Culottes….sigh…. they can be tricky can’t they?
I’ve had trouble with them in the past.
LOTS of trouble… see HERE, HERE and HERE.

3. It has a peek-a-boo midsection.

Over 40?
With a post-lots-of-babies squishy midriff?
Give me a break!

4. It’s a Jumpsuit 😜.

Any style of jumpsuit has it’s problems.
Bathroom issues.
Baggy bum issues.
Saggy crotch or Camel toe issues.
The list goes on…

So, pretty much everything about this outfit is a challenge, right?

Not really.

Yes, it may be a fankle to visit the ladies and, yes it has it’s issues, but if you like something (like white jumpsuits) you should definitely be wearing them!

Having said that, wearing a white jumpsuit does require a little planning and a handbag addition.

The planning part is all about the underwear.
Smooth and well fitting pants are essential.
Any ooze or bulge will stand out like a sore thumb, even the seams on your knickers are on show.
In my opinion the best thing to wear under culottes is a culotte slip.
(I found mine on eBay but you can get a similar one HERE)
And, the best knickers to go for are brazilian style.

What is your go-to knicker style when you don’t want a VPL?

The handbag addition are wipes, just a small packet of wet wipes for any slitters or spots.
The fabric of this jumpsuit wipes easily and dries quickly.
I dropped a blob of coleslaw (from my lunch) in my lap but recovered easily 😇 .

The culotte-ness of this jumpsuit is growing on me.
I have struggled in the past, but the more I wear culottes the more I like them.
Plus, there is no need to worry about dirty hems!

The peek-a-boo section of this jumpsuit is only a slither (when belted) and shows the narrowest part of the body.
A mere suggestion of skin!
(You’ll see more in the next post)
It is also a flowing fit, so there is no squeezing and inevitable oozing through the peek-a-boo holes… Yikes!

Jumpsuits are undeniably more difficult when visiting the ladies!
Unzipping can be tricky, then there is the “holding up”.
With this white one I just took it off and hung it on the back of the door!
Much less hassle, and no danger of it falling on the floor.
Yes, bathroom trips take a few minutes longer but it’s no big deal really.

I may have belted the jumpsuit this time, to give a ‘shape’ and add interest, but I found that I prefer it unbelted and baggy at the crotch… weird right?

{More on that in the next post!}

The belt also reduces the look of the peek-a-boo area to just a slither of skin, which is also easier to wear… and a little smarter.

I added a simple pair of chunky earrings but no other jewellery, sometimes a little less is better (only sometimes though!)

My (very) old favourite cropped jacket, and a pair of peep toe booties finished things off nicely.
