Meet Carmen - The Ultimate Utility Boilersuit!
A soft cotton twill - 100% organic cotton. Classic collar, shoulder tabs and cuffed sleeves, in black and white stripe!
The waist is relaxed at the front and elasticated at the back for a bit of shape - a different cut to our Eddie boilers which have an all-round elasticated waist.
6 pockets for a cool utility look, concealed button up closure, and a relaxed tapered leg which are perfect to roll - we think it looks great with some chunky boots, and can be styled up with a belt!
I have a few Lucy and yak things and love how comfortable well made the products are. The 14-16 has always been a good fit in all the other products but just does not sit right in this jumpsuit. I found this jumpsuit to be really uncomfortable! The fabric is very stiff so when I bent down the button fell off around the hips and it’s just generally hard to move about it. It fits well on the top but butt and hips area. The elastic at the waist band is a weird length so it sort of cuts off not at my waist. And the buttons are poorly designed so they sort of gape around the hips, it’s like it should have been a zip there or more buttons or just not had buttons all the way down like in the other jumpsuits. I will still buy from Lucy and yak because I love my other stuff so much but deffo disappointed.
I did like it but I returned it. I hadn't found any time to actually wear it out so I returned it because I didn't think I would use it in the end also the legs were a bit short for me on the medium and I'm only 5'4.5. I think the legs are the same length on every size.
'Carmen' Boilersuit in Black and White Stripe
These are the most comfy clothes I own. They fit beautifully, look fantastic and I never want to take them off. Can't wait to get more in other colours 😍
My first boilersuit and I don't think any can compare to how lovely this one is. The buttons go down quite far so you don't have to contort yourself in and out of it when you need the bathroom. It looks great with a black belt to break up the stripes. There are a lot of looks to be had with this so be creative! If I style it right (smart chunky heeled lace up boots, dark knit jumper over the top) I can even get away with it at the office. Material feels warm enough but lightweight,
Sizing: Not a lot of give (except elasticated waist) so even though I go for an XS in the cord dungarees, the XS in this was too small when I sat down so I ordered an S which fits like a dream.
