We’ve seen this trend all summer long, the romper is a style with so many version and varieties. Finding the one that suits you and your body shape can make all the difference. Today I’m giving you 4 key steps in choosing the right one for you.
Step 1: Choose the style. From short sleeve, sleeveless, long sleeve, and strapless, these little numbers come in an array of different styles. Find one that makes you feel comfortable and is appropriate for your lifestyle. Personally I steer clear away from anything strapless. It doesn’t suit my style, or make me feel comfortable. When I found this 3/4-sleeve romper, it was an instant love. It fits my personality, and works for my lifestyle. I knew this was the style of choice.
Step 2: Waistline. I’ve gone through my fair share of different rompers and the most challenging part I find is the waistband. Because everybody is different, I’ve found that some rompers sit strangely at my waistline, hitting me at an odd place in the mid section. I’ve seen many rompers gone wrong because of incorrect sizing and awful fit. You want to make sure the cinched in waistline comes in exactly at your natural waistline. This is the smallest part of your body, allowing your romper to accentuate that area, and in turn elongating your legs and torso.
Step 3: Prints. There are so many fun printed rompers out there it can become so inviting to a newbie who’s having their first try at these one piece numbers. But, before you start with a tie die printed choice or an all over floral one, my suggestion would be to stick with a solid black. It’s classic, simple, dressy, casual, and easy to accessorize. It’s and easy go-to for those beginners new to the romper trend.
Step 4: Know your limits. Whether you’re wearing a romper as a beach cover-up or an everyday wear option, know what’s appropriate for which occasion. It’s acceptable to wear a flowing thin option as a beach cover up since everybody is in their bathing suits, but it’s not cute to wear this to the mall or a neighborhood BBQ. Showing up in a romper that is see through, very thin, and high enough to show our back assets is not a good look. Be mindful of your body parts, respect yourself and know your limits as to what type of rompers is appropriate for which occasion.
With these steps your introduction into the world of rompers will be narrow and focused. Try this trend for a trending, fast, and stylish look made for any body type (you just have to find the right one!) Happy Hunting!
