This Genius Woman Invented A Jumpsuit That Lets You Go To The Loo Without Having To Take The Whole Thing Off

This Genius Woman Invented A Jumpsuit That Lets You Go To The Loo Without Having To Take The Whole Thing Off

Ever found yourself semi-naked in a bathroom on a girls' night out due to needing to go to the toilet while wearing a jumpsuit? We have...

Well, fashionistas no longer need to fear going to the toilet as Londoner Hetty Lawrence has answered our one-piece prayers and designed a loo-friendly jumpsuit. Pretty wicked, right?

The 29-year-old, who works in marketing, came up with the concept of her brand Léim (which means 'Jump' in Irish Gaelic) and its 'Léim ezp' jumpsuits after a stranger accidentally saw her semi-nude over the top of a toilet cubicle at an event.

Incredibly Hetty turned a rather awkward situation into a bright idea and soon after came up with the design of a jumpsuit with an unbuttonable, rezippable bum section.

The "game-changing" design of the impractical wardrobe staple comes in two styles; the 'Sisterhood' and 'Bringing Sexy Back'.

Named after The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, the sleeveless one-piece comes in denim, velvet and linen. It boasts cross-straps that allow style mavens to wear it two ways and also layer it over a top for a multi-seasonal piece.

While the 'Bringing Sexy Back' jumpsuit is long-sleeved option that comes in chic rose lyocell as well as navy lyocell.

Hetty, who has a background in fashion, designed the one-piece with a woman called Paula and is proud that the garments are made on home soil in a Sheffield Factory as sustainability is key to the brand.

She told the Huffington Post: "I could have used a factory in Europe, but I don't want to be shipping them to the UK, only to send them all over the world again.

"I can visit the factory - jump on the train in a day and go see them. That was really important to me. Some of the factories I saw were genuinely terrible. I was worried for the staff in those environments."

Hetty's designs however don't come cheap as the jumpsuits retail between £219 and £245 in sizes ranging from UK 6 to 18.

But potential customers don't fret as the innovator launched a crowdfund on Kickstarter until Friday, 26th July.

Those interested getting their hands on the piece can get a 15% discount off the full price if they pledge £50.

The first jumpsuits will start going into production mid-August before getting to customers in October - as they say, 'good things happen to those who wait' especially long-suffering jumpsuit wearers.
