Not All Rompers are Created Equal
You know why I love rompers so much? Because they come in one piece and it takes all of the guesswork out of putting together a complete outfit. If you need to find a quick outfit and don’t feel like pulling individual pieces together, a romper is the sure way to go. I do have to admit that I don’t like all rompers. The romper featured in this post meets all of my romper requirements and it’s less than 25 dollars!
I Admit–I’m a Romper Snob
I’m about 5 feet, 8 inches tall (give or take half an inch), have a pretty long torso, and slender figure. Those qualities are exactly why I can’t wear just any ol’ romper. If I purchase one in my size, chances are, it will fit well but it’ll be too short-resulting in the camel toe of the century. If I get a bigger one, the camel toe is eliminated but I end up looking like a soggy mess. You see my dilemma? Because of this predicament, I almost always have to try it on and can’t purchase one online–almost always.
When I saw the romper I’m wearing in this post, I loved it. I mostly liked that they were pants because I find very little success in romper shorts. I bit the bullet and purchased it because I didn’t have much to lose with that awesome price point.
As I waited for my romper, I was worried about so many things: is my ass going to look super flat? Am I going to have a camel toe? Are the pants going to be too short? I loved how it looked online so much, that I just wanted it to work for me.
The Moment of Truth
I didn’t wait long for my adorable romper to come. I tried it on as soon as I got home, and I was obsessed! It looked great on my figure (check), I had no camel toe (check) and the pants were long enough (check, check, check!). I did choose to wear a bodysuit underneath it because it’s very low cut and I was guaranteed to have an impromptu nip-slip. I tried some fashion tape, but it wasn’t cuttin’ the mustard for me. If I had a smaller bust, I could have worn this romper sans bodysuit.
For My Tall People
After lots of romper trial and error, I think I found the types that I can wear, and the ones I need to stay away from. Here are some styles that I can wear
Here are some styles that I stay clear from. Not because they aren’t cute, but because they don’t suit my body type well.
