Though I adore rompers (and have shared my obsession for them here & here) I have found one issue when trying them on; While I love the look of fitted rompers, they typically just do not love me. As a girl with a bit more curve to her hip, I’ve always found that playsuits which fit over my hips usually pool over my shoulders and the end up looking quite ill-fitted.
Having curve isn’t something that bothers me. In my teens, I was more self-conscious of myself, but since coming into my 20s I have found an overall sense of peace with my body and have realized that whether I like it or not this is my figure, so I may as well embrace it!Part of embracing your shape is recognizing the silhouettes that flatter it – instead of “hiding” it. After shopping for and trying on many rompers, I finally was able to nail down a silhouette that I found flattering and comfortable – and today I am sharing a few tips on how you can also find your perfect summertime romper!
Look for Cuts that Float Away
If you’re on the hunt for a romper you’ll wear time and time again, than you’re going to want to find one that floats away from your legs. Rompers that hug tightly against your legs are uncomfortable and restrict your movement.
Find a Cinched Waistline
To enhance your shape, or create more of a waistline definition, look for a romper with a cinched waistline. Rompers that come with a belt, or have a built-in cinch will create more of an hourglass figure and will embrace
A V-neckline is Elongating
If you feel like rompers shorten you, then look for one with a V-neckline. V necklines add length and elongate your appearance.
Seek out Materials that have Stretch
When it comes to any article of clothing, the one thing that will hold me back from wearing it is the comfort factor. Having great style no longer means we need to be uncomfortable. Nowadays there are so many materials that have been mixed up to have some stretch to them to ensure you can feel and look your best – hello, jeggings! So, when you’re looking for a romper try to find one that has stretch to it so you can move freely and feel comfortable all day long.
Airy & Light for the Win
Lastly, when you’re shopping for your romper look for materials that are light and airy. Chances are you’re grabbing a romper to sport during the summer, so you’ll want to keep cool in the summer heat. The best way to ensure you’re comfortable in the sun is by investing in a romper that is light and airy, rather than thick and heavy.
