You Look Fab strikes again! I couldn't resist trying a boilersuit after all the cute looks posted here. I scoured the possibilities online and decided to try the style by Madewell that Angie got in pink. The green was just the right color for me, though I wasn't sure I wanted to be that green from head to toe! When I tried it on in the store, I was surprised to find that I loved it. (As many have pointed out, fitting a one-piece garment is about as hard as it gets; and I tried to keep my expectations low.)
My other choice is one that I have tried on before at OSKA, but, even at its current sale price, it is quite a bit more expensive than the Madewell one. (And bonus: Madewell was having a sale, too.) The OSKA boilersuit is a softer fabric and a slouchier style, and you can see it here
. I liked it a lot, and to be honest, I liked the fit on me better than on the model. I am shorter, so it didn't pull at all in the seat as it seems to do on the model.
I haven't cut the tags on the Madewell boilersuit yet. I'm leaning to keep it, but also still wondering whether I should get the OSKA one instead.
I am a little concerned about how much I will wear this piece,
given that I have a pair of overalls that I ended up wearing hardly at
all. But I do feel less hokey in the boilersuit. I feel it is a little
more sophisticated, somehow. Though my DH suggested, in his typical
"helpful" way, that perhaps I should embroider my name above one of the front pockets.
I'd love to hear your thoughts. Keep? or get the denim one from OSKA? (The OSKA one is non-returnable, so I can't bring it home and try it on, then take it back; you'll just have to imagine it on me.)
