My Tailored Jumpsuit from AQAQ

My Tailored Jumpsuit from AQAQ

If someone were to ask you what size you were, you'd probably be able to name your size (or sizes, depending on a particular brand). We get caught up in sizes that we often forget that it's more important to pay attention to the fit rather than the number on the tag. That's why when I was looking for a jumpsuit to wear to my wedding reception three years ago, I only had 3 requirements: it must be blush, it must be wide-legged and it must have a plunging neckline.

So when I found one from AQAQ that I loved, even though it was several sizes too big, I did not waste one second purchasing it. Bonus: it was on clearance!

AQAQ is a London-based brand that caters to more modern silhouettes. Their clothes are a bit pricier than you would find at Zara or Topshop so I would look to them for more special occasion items.

When my jumpsuit arrived, I was clearly swimming in it but knew that it had the exact elements I was looking for. I searched on Yelp for a reliable tailor and found one with good reviews used frequently in my area. The actual process was pretty simple: I wore the jumpsuit, she pinned me up the way I wanted the fit and I explained to her how I wanted them hem. A week later, I had a piece that fit me like a glove!

Although this jumpsuit is a few years old, AQAQ has several on their website that is similar and I have linked them below. Go check them out and tell me which ones you like!
