The Nina Jumpsuit has become one of our best sellers!
Based on the much loved Nina Dress, the bodice has the same tailored, but not tight form, with a scoop neckline and comfortable, full straps. The pants are simply pleated for a flattering shape across the waist and tummy, flowing into a relaxed, slightly tapered leg. They are made complete with deep feature pockets!
Lots of women of many varied body shapes and sizes have this design now and am so pleased with the fit! Great care has been taken to finesse the design with a professional Patternmaker for the ultimate in wearability and comfort. You won't encounter many of the usual fit issues of other jumpsuits like stringy straps, baggy shapeless waistlines or the dreaded centre seam that rides up in the most awkward of places!
The Nina Jumpsuit looks fantastic worn casually with sandals or little sneakers or just add heels and some bright jewellery for a bold, modern, evening outfit! It's also very versatile investment piece that works well over a long sleeved tee and boots in cold weather.
Made from mid weight linen with a touch of spandex for extra movement and comfort
7/8 Leg falls mid calf to just above the ankle, depending on height
Deep centre seam to avoid riding up
Limited edition, ethically handmade by a small local business
Handwash or gentle machine wash inside a washbag using mild detergent
Hot iron or looks lovely un-ironed if you like a softly rumpled, more natural texture.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
There’s often confusion about what size to buy a jumpsuit or playsuit because they are a top and bottom combined into one garment!
So if you are evenly proportioned, whether that’s straight up and down or hourglass, just go for your usual size.
If you have a bigger top half than lower half then choose the size you’d wear in a top or dress that accommodates the bust comfortably and the pants section will flow nicely.
If you have a bigger bottom than top then choose the same size you would in pants. It’s better to have a little extra room up top than feel restricted in the lower half.
Consistent with our other styles, so if you already have a piece of Ruby Raisin please select the same size. If your garment tag says 12, that indicates 12-14 online as I like to describe my sizes as a range to indicate they are generous and allow for human variation.
Please get in touch any time with questions- always happy to help!
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Average to generous sizing, running true to size, even on curvy or tall body shapes. Model with fair hair wears the 8-10, is average height. Model wth dark hair wears 12-14, is average height with larger bust. Model with red hair wears the 8-10 and is tall with small bust and long limbs. If you have a Nina Dress, go for the same size. If you are extremely tall or have a very long torso and short legs, consider going up a size but most people are wearing their usual size.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite dress and run a tape measure across the garment (not something stretchy) and compare your measurements to these below.
