Rompers and jumpsuits catapulted back onto the fashion scene in 2006 and
have been trending steadily for seasons since. It’s a trend that many
women feel is best reserved for the very young and very thin, but
rompers come in a wide variety of styles, with options to suit every age
Lightweight, comfortable and versatile, like the
perfect little dress, rompers too can take you from day to night. To add
to its appeal, it’s an all-in-one outfit. Throw it on, toss in some
simple accessories and a great pair of shoes and you’re out the door.
fashion writers have relegated the romper to the Do Not Wear category -
but if you’ve been thinking about adding this fun and sexy item to your
collection, here’s a little guideline on what style of romper or
jumpsuit to choose to best flatter your figure.
you’re full figured and curvy, but comfortable with showing a little
leg, a traditional romper can work for you. With wider hips and fuller
thighs, it’s important to look for a style with a medium to full length
Rompers have a reputation for being unforgiving, so look
for tailored styles in fabrics that are slightly heavier and won’t cling
to your every imperfection. You want your romper to play up your
curves, not cling to them.
If you would prefer to highlight your
upper body and cover your legs, a jumpsuit is more up your alley.
Jumpsuits are all-in-one like rompers, but with a full pant leg.
Jumpsuit styles range from fun and sexy club wear to classic
conservative styles that can even work in the office and cocktail
If you’re lacking in the
curves department, you want to look for a romper style with
strategically placed frills and added details.
Lithe figures can
carry a little extra bulk, and details such as ruffles, floral
appliques, pleating etc help to add volume and and create the illusion
of curves on a boyish figure.
If you desire a little extra volume
on top, many rompers feature ruffles at the neck and bust line which
creates the illusion of a fuller bust. A strapless, sweetheart neckline
with a built-in underwire and slight padding will also help you visually
augment a smaller bust.
Romper styles also feature ruffles or
tiers on the short portion, which help to create womanly curves at the
hips. Pockets, contrast piping and other details in the hip area also
help to soften a boyish figure and make it appear more curvy.
you’re full figured and curvy or thin and boyish - rompers should
almost always be worn with a belt, unless they feature a built-in belt
or cinching at the waist. It’s very important to highlight the waist
when wearing a romper or jumpsuit to create a balanced, hourglass
Rethink your go-to dresses this summer and experiment
with versatile rompers. A chic black romper can easily replace your
little black dress this summer for a fun, trendy take on a wardrobe
