How to Find the Perfect Pair of Overalls

To say that finding the perfect pair of overalls is challenging is an understatement. Heck, finding the prefect pair of jeans is tough…so I’m sure you can imagine that finding a flattering denim onesie aka overalls is nearly impossible, especially for women with any type of curves.

By no means do I believe that overalls are everyone’s cup of tea. However, if you’re a fan and have been on the hunt for a good pair, then here is my advice to help you with your search.

Stick to flattering styles for your body

Ask yourself what jean style is most prominent if your current wardrobe. Maybe skinny jeans your jam or high rise (high-waisted) skinny jeans? If not those, maybe you flairs, boot cut, wide legs, cropped, boyfriend jeans , or a classic slim fit. If you know what jean fit makes your feel your best, then you’re one step close to finding what you’re looking for.


Stretchy denim is your friend.

As you know denim comes in many shapes and size – it can be thick, rigid, deconstructed…you name it. I recommend a super-stretchy fit that will maintain its shape. From my personal experience, I’ve found that there are a number of brands/designers who have mastered this style, however, it is important to understand what works best for you.

Trust the process.

I understand that this statement may feel a little deep and profound for overalls. But seriously, overalls are such a huge statement piece that you’re going to want to ace this look. Take your time with your search (that’s what I did!), and you will certainly find a pair that you will love.

Happy searching and let me know if you find a perfect pair…I would love to hear about it!
