The Penny ezp® Playsuit Hot Pink Linen
It's all about toilet-friendly playsuits this summer!
The Penny ezp® Playsuit is a relaxed fit shorts style (comfortable and forgiving for long days in the park or weddings that go well into the evening) paired with Leim's new style back.
I wanted to design a style that would be comfortable for you to wear all day - in Leim's signature fabric, European pre-washed linen.
This style, as with all Leim's jumpsuits, has pockets that you can actually fit things in and the fitted top means you probably won't need to wear a bra.
How To Use The Bathroom In This Jumpsuit
It's easy - no more faffing around when you need the toilet!
First, undo the buttons either side of the waistband.
Undo the zips each side.
Go about your business.
Once you're done, pull up the zips - carefully! You could do the buttons first if you like, then you have both hands to re-do the zips.
Size + Fit Advice
The Penny ezp® Playsuit fits true to size. The shorts are quite roomy - very forgiving after a big lunch - but the waistband and top are both fitted. If you prefer a looser fit around your chest (or if you have bigger boobs) you may want to size up.
If you would like a custom leg length, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss - tall and petite people are absolutely welcome here!
The Penny ezp® Playsuit has an inside leg measurement of 8cm.
Maisie is wearing a size 8 and is 5'7".
Hetty's Styling Tips
The Penny ezp® Playsuit speaks for itself - I'm loving this bright pink which feels like it's going to blow the cobwebs of the last year and a half away.
I think I'll probably pair this with some white trainers (Veja or Converse are my go-tos) and a relaxed shacket - I'm loving the ones by Henri London!
What Makes This Jumpsuit Special?The waistband at the back of the top part of this playsuit looks pretty but it actually serves a structural purpose. It keeps the front of the top snug around your belly and also stops the fabric from loosely flapping around your shoulder blades.
How To Care for Your Penny ezp® Playsuit
The Penny ezp® Playsuit is machine washable on a handwash setting with non-biological detergent.
Please try to use an eco, detergent and do not let the buttons 'sit' in water for too long!
You will probably need to iron this jumpsuit on your iron's hottest setting, with plenty of steam - it's linen so can take the heat!
How Is This Playsuit Sustainable?
The Penny ezp® Playsuit is made from 100% European linen. Linen is made from flax, a strong plant best grown in northern Europe. It needs little or no fertilisers and due to the local climate, little extra water.
The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2. Every part of the plant is used, what isn’t used to produce linen can be used to make linseed oil, paper, cattle feed or even soap.
It also doesn’t always require the use of pesticides as it can grow in poor quality soil. Linen is therefore almost naturally organic. It is completely biodegradable, recyclable and due to its natural absorbency, it requires less dye than cotton. This means that linen scores high on the ecological chart.
The fabric was made by a mill which uses electricity supplied solely from renewable energy sources and is OEKO Tex certified.
The 6 buttons are made from corozo nuts (Palm Ivory - don’t worry, it’s vegan!) and are left the beautiful natural colour of the corozo. You may be able to see some of the pattina from where the nut is moulded!
