To romper or not to romper?

Monday, May 9, 2011



I know that many of us (myself included) are terrified to wear a romper. But fear no more! According to Refinery29, there are a few easy tips on how to wear them and feel great. Prints are key for a pretty look, especially when paired up with a belt or a cute ribbon to enhance your natural curves. Also, rompers can make your legs look miles long if you avoid wearing sandals with thick ankle straps. So sweets, where do you stand on rompers? Will you be wearing them this summer? xo

P.S: I love this one!

I can't stand rompers. I think they look ridiculous, but I won't laugh if other people wear them. :-)

I would love to wear rompers. I think they're great. However, some of us want to minimize our "natural curves", and I know for a fact that because of said curves this would not look good on me. So I will celebrate other people wearing them.

I especially love that first picture! It is fabulous. It makes me want to give rompers a chance!

Miranda said...

I love them but sadly they don't flatter me :(

I would totally wear one if ever got warm enough!

Annie said...

I don't own one yet, but I keep thinking about getting one.. If I do, I definitely picture a fun print :)
Hope you had a great weekend!! xo

There is where all the rompers have gone; I only do baby rompers (for baby) but they are extinct (at least in local shops).

i always thought i could never pull them off but i just bought one and wore it on my trip to jamaica. you can see a not so good picture here: http://lachapstickfanatique.blogspot.com/2011/04/jamaica-trip-monday-and-tuesday.html

i really think you just have to find one that fits your body type, much like a dress. i have hips and a chest so i made sure that i found one with a belt that cinches me. i also went with black for fear of being lost in florals (i am also petit).

angie said...

rompers are soo cute and totally wearable in public as long as they dont look too much like PJs!

Ana Degenaar said...

Definitely TO ROMPER!

A76 said...

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i can't believe they sticked around for so many seasons! - i'm FOR them - but i think this summer may have to skip on all things 'shorts' - i don't have the body to wear them this year ..

im zoe said...

I think they are gorgeous, not sure if i can pull them off as im small, but hey might have to give it a whirl.
im smitten with the first and last image so pretty.

I live in them in the summertime! Some of the printed ones I have make me look like a 5 year old girl--but I don't care. :)

Brenna [fabuleuxdestin] said...

Once you find one that flatters you it makes a world of difference ! I love my romper :) :) and I have a curvy figure.

Juliet said...

I want to romp. I am all about the romping.

C... said...

I love the look but I am busty so I have to find the right support and thick straps on rompers not so cute.

Marta said...

Hi Diana! The first girl looks really stylish, but I wouldn't wear a romper, I mean, can it be really comfortable?!

Amy said...

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I think rompers are adorable but with my high waist I cant seem to pull them off. Love your picks tho.

amy b.s. said...

i've often wondered if i could pull off the romper, but am definitely a little nervous to try!

Laura said...

I have not yet tried a romper, but my roommate owns one that I plan on borrowing sometime this summer :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Honestly, I want a romper so I can wear one to ballet class. They would be so cute and keep my hips warm!

Kristin H said...

Yes to romper but with flats!!!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I've yet to wear a Romper - on the other hand - I might be inclined to wear one at 50;-)

La Feem said...

I think they're super cute but not all styles look good on all people so a few tips to wear them well are always helpful. xo

Diana Mieczan said...

Morgan, you look fantastic in your romper!!

Diana Mieczan said...

I love that, Magdalena!!...And Marta, my friend loves wearing them and she says that they are totally comfy:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Kristin, I was thinking that too...Flats are a must for me:)

Lady Grey said...

honestly I think they look AMAZING on these girls... but I can't see it on me, I think I'd look like a 6 year old girl!

Sara Szatmary said...

Do it! I heart rompers!

made-to-travel.com said...

I really really really love how rompers look...but I wore one once to work and then realized I will have to get naked every time in the ladies' which makes me personally feel odd...lol. TMI? Sorry! But it's my pet peeve with the lovely adorable rompers.

I actually have a romper which I haven't worn yet but I do like the idea of wearing it with a belt!

Anna Walker said...

ehhhh ha I don't know. I don't think I would wear a romper, but I don't think that that I could rule it out as a someday outfit!

Josie said...

To romper absolutely. Cute and edgy.

Diana Mieczan said...

Those are such a great comments and MtT, good point!!!

Laura *You Stir Me* said...

I love them and tried one on this weekend only to find it made me look ridiculous. It was super cute though (on the hanger) and I love them on other girls so I'm going to keep trying until I find the one!

Marissa said...

I adore rompers! They're so easy to wear belted. I have a plain gray one, but I'm loving all these patterns.

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

i haven't bought one yet, but they are cute!! i worry that my hips are a bit wide and my top a bit small to have an all-in-one outfit?

Dionne said...

I am definitely for rompers. I have been wearing them for years, and love them! I think the first time I started wearing them was 6 years ago, so I wear them whether they are in style or not, lol!

I just love the look of rompers. Unfortunately I can't wear them. My Italian/Greek curves & thighs get in the way :)

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

I like rompers, but---I am afraid that I've never been able to pull them off! Now, a romper with long pants? maybe!

Jessica said...

I like the idea of them, but I don't think I'd wear one! Maybe just on the beach.

jessica said...
