Designer creates stylish jumpsuits you don't need to take off when you visit the washroom

Whether you're on holiday, out clubbing or just lounging around at home, you're bound to encounter the same issue if you're wearing a playsuit, romper or a jumpsuit.

And that's the struggle of going to the toilet while wearing one.

We haven't yet found a great looking one that we don't have to take off completely in order to relieve ourselves, so more often than not, we're left shivering, our top half totally exposed to the elements while going to pee.

But soon this very first world problem may be a thing of the past - and it's all thanks to one fashion designer.

A woman named Henrietta Lawrence has created something that takes the trouble out of going to the toilet in an all-in-one outfit.

She calls it the Leim ezp™ jumpsuit and it looks super stylish.

The garment features two small zips on the trouser half, which allows you to easily undo the bottom of the jumpsuit, without having to take the whole thing off down to your ankles.

Speaking to Metro, the 29-year-old London-based designer said she was first inspired to create the jumpsuit after a weekend at Glastonbury.

"Being at Glastonbury a few years ago, most of the toilets there aren’t enclosed like Portaloos, you’re open to the elements.

"Try going to the toilet in a jumpsuit, with people peering over the top to see if it’s free and you’re in there naked.

"And then, of course, there’s the whole winter vs jumpsuit issue – when it’s 0 degrees outside, why would you want to get undressed unnecessarily? Particularly in my office, where the toilet is freezing."

Those keen to purchase one right now can do so via weareleim.com/shop, where they are being sold for between £219 and £249.

The designer is also currently raising money on Kickstarter to help her expand the business.

Her goal is to crowdfund £12,500 and she's so far made £2,114.

If she reaches her target, the jumpsuits will be sold across the UK, Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand in a selection of colours and sustainable materials - including denim, velvet and linen.
