Find the Best Romper for Your Body Type

Rompers. You’ve probably seen me wearing a romper a million times on this blog but for every romper you saw, there were ten others I tried on that didn’t work. Why? Because all rompers are not created equal. Just like bodies. There are shapes and cuts of rompers that are more flattering than others and it’s all about finding that one that works for YOU! Because there really are rompers for every body type.

Rompers for Every Body Type

ROMPERS FOR EVERY BODY TYPE

 

 

I am really excited to share this post highlighting different styles of rompers with you because not only do I think you’ll find it super helpful, I get to introduce you to some of my favorite Dallas bloggers who also happen to be some of my good friends! I think you’ll be able to tell we had fun with this post considering I have a glass of wine in my hand in almost every photo. Whoops.

Here is a break down of all of our looks and why we chose our romper…

ME – THE FASHION HOUR

I have always had a love/hate relationship with rompers. I love that they are a one-stop shop so to speak that I can throw on and go, but sometimes the cut of them does not love me back. I have thicker thighs and a bit of a booty so finding ones that fit on top and aren’t too tight on the bottom can be hard. When shopping for rompers I always look for rompers that cut in at the waist and have longer shorts. This is a great way to create an hourglass figure. I love that this tropical romper has an elastic waist with plenty of fabric to comfortably cover my thighs and backside. I also love the collared shirt and button down detail of it because it draws the eye up.

Whenever you are heavier on the bottom or just don’t want to draw attention to your bottom half, stay away from any extra fabric. Extra details on the shorts can may make you look bigger than you are and none of us want that! Take a look at this post, this post, and this post for a look at other rompers I’ve worn! *Size up 1-2 sizes on my romper*

 

Lynlee Poston- GAL ABOUT TOWN

Rompers for every body type

Lynlee went with this beautiful periwinkle-colored romper because of the flutter sleeves and waistline. She feels that she has broad shoulders and a more athletic build so rompers with sleeves are always her preference! She has a long torso so rompers with a cinched waist or drop waist usually work best for her.

 

Christina Beauchamp – FASHION & FRILLS
Rompers for every body type

Christina is rocking her favorite neckline and a very hot trend right now, off-the-shoulder. She chose this off-the-shoulder romper because of how flattering the neckline is and how loose fitting the shorts are. The culotte-style shorts are a great choice for anyone wanting to draw less attention to their legs (definitely a go-to for me!).

 

Amanda Miller – THE MILLER AFFECT

Rompers for every body type

Amanda is 5’11” so it can be tough for her to find rompers that are long enough. She went with this sleeveless coral one because of the ruffle detail at the ends of the shorts. Whereas for my body type I would want to stay away from any added details or ruffles on the shorts, these details look great on Amanda and highlight her legs!

 

Brooke Burnett – ONE SMALL BLONDE

Rompers for Every Body Type

Brooke is very petite (hence the blog name) so she has a lot of freedom when it comes to what style of romper she wears. I love this vibrant tropical one she chose! The sweetheart halter neckline is flattering because it makes her look taller and elongates her body.

 

Sage Coralli – SO SAGE BLOG

Rompers for every body type

Sage kept things chic and simple in this button down black romper. She always looks to draw attention to her upper body so this v-neck strappy top did the trick. This romper comes with a removable tie belt so she could cinch it at the waist to create shape or leave it undone for a looser fitted look.

In case you didn’t notice we are all wearing neutral colored shoes. This is a great way to create the illusion that your legs are longer than they really are and is always a great option when wearing a romper! Click through the images below for a round-up of some of my favorite rompers right now in a range of styles!

If you have any specific questions or concerns about finding a romper for your body type, leave me a comment or shoot me an email at hello@thefashionhour.com. I hope you found this helpful and are ready to give different styles of rompers a try!

    The rompers are super cute, but it would have been nice to have actually included someone who weight 180 pounds as you described in the intro. You and your friends have remarkably similar body types (at least, judging by the photos). I mean, if you don’t have any overweight friends, that’s fine, but then don’t advertise that a post will help you find the romper for your body type and not include a wider variety of body types.

      Hi Ally! Thank you for your feedback! I am so sorry it came across that way and potentially hurt your feelings! We are honestly just a group of girlfriends who wanted to do a post about rompers and share what works for us personally as this is what most of my blog posts are about- sharing what works for me personally and how that may be able to help others find pieces that work for them. While from the photos it may appear to you we have the same body type, we do not. As you’ll read in the post, Amanda is super tall, Brooke very petite, I have a big butt, some short torsos, some long, etc… while we may appear “the same size”, we are ultimately built different. I hope that instead of focusing on our appearance you can appreciate some of the general tips I shared to guide women in the right direction to finding a romper style best suited for them. Feel free to email me directly should you have any more questions or concerns!

    I had a similar conversation with one of my friends who feels like she has a big booty and struggles to find rompers long enough for her. Love this post and the collab. You all should do it more often!!!

    Hi, love this post ! I have never been able to find a romper that fit me well, I am about 5’0 ft , carry my weight in my mid section, and very short waisted. I would really love to find one that fit my body type for this upcoming summer; what would you suggest ?
