As beautiful as they look, jumpsuits can be a real pain when you go to the toilet.

Whether you're wearing a playsuit, a romper or a jumpsuit we've not found one where you don't have to strip off completely just to go for a wee.

It's one thing in the height of summer at your own house but it's a whole other ball game when it's winter and you're in a portaloo.

Thankfully one fashion designer has found a solution and it's groundbreaking.

A woman named Henrietta Lawrence has created a jumpsuit that takes all the trouble out of going to the toilet.

It's called the Leim ezp™ jumpsuit  and it looks really stylish.

It features two small zips on the trouser half, which allow you to easily undo the bottom of the jumpsuit and go to the toilet, without having to pull the whole thing 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."

Hetty explains on the website that the fabrics and materials will be natural or recycled where absolutely possible and manufacturing will take place in the UK to reduce carbon emissions and to monitor welfare standards.

She writes: "Yes, this affects the price. Yes, it is worth it."

The garments cost between £219 and £249 - but some may see that as a price worth paying.

The designer is also raising money on Kickstarter to help expand the business and her goal is to crowdfund £12,500.

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.
