Â by Arlette Lightweight Galloping Horses fantastic to wear
This lightweight 45% silk 55% cotton jumpsuit by Ainsley feels fantastic on, and the wide collar and draped back panel give it a sensual touch. I found this in a store after it was sold out online and am so glad I tried it.
It has an unusual pull-on style, where you step in through the top. The limiting factor getting it on is the stretch of the elastic waist. I'm 5'2", 32-24-37, and was able to fit the XS easily with plenty of room in my curvy thighs. There are lingerie straps at the shoulder to attach to your bra strap which keeps the top in place (which I needed as the top was a little wide for my narrow shoulders). The sleeves are full-length on me, and may be bracelet length on taller women. The back is cut low, but not so low that a bra shows as long as the bra band doesn't ride up. I accidentally had the back panel flipped to the front and it looked great too. Fully self lined top, so nothing will show through. The bottom is not lined, but due to the pattern and looseness is not really see-through. The pants have no outside seams. It does tend to wrinkle a bit, but not very noticeable because of the pattern. I don't need to hem when I wear 3.5" heels.
I can wear this jumpsuit with blazers to dress it up, due to the wide legs it looks like a maxi dress. I saw someone suggest to have it tailored into a separate top and bottom to make it more versatile, and may follow that suggestion as a blouse in this fabric would fit with a good part of my clothes. For now it is as comfy as pyjamas, but looks a lot better.
Sorry about the photo quality, they are only partial and in very dim lighting at night. The jumpsuit is only so wrinkled because it was crushed in a bag before I put it on for the review shots.
Colors & Pattern:
Subtle colours in the galloping horses, like the model shots on the left, and will suit many complexions. The pattern placement is different on each jumpsuit; I have not found one yet that looks like the model shot above.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by shopper222 Mustang Jumpsuit
I have a new love and it's name is Mustang. I am a "jumpsuit junkie" and this one does not fall short. Gorgeous! The material is cotton silk so it's soft on the skin. Th colors are a soft blue, pink and yellow but the horses give the jumpsuit a pop. The fit is TTS and lenght is appropriate. Unlike a lot of jumpsuit the lenght can be off. I am 5"6 and it hit right at the ankle, so heels or flats will both work. Now the fun part, the back of the jumper. It has a back sash which is attached to the belt that ties around your waist. This allows you to drape the back or not. The designer is Ainsley and I am a new fan.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Aussiechick Just a bit too much going on
I was really attracted to this unique style. I love horses and I am not frightened off by a jumpsuit. Unfortunately the colours are not as quite as bright in real life and the jumpsuit has a very weird flap at the back. The flap has the waist belt so it hangs behind your back and ties in the front. Its just a bit too much going on for me and seems to have a lot of fabric all round. Its not terribly flattering to the body. Arrived horribly creased so this may have dampened my enthusiasm. I'll probably keep it and make it work. I'm 5ft 2" but length wise I could wear this with 5.5" platforms.
