Hi there, babes! I hope your week is off to a great start! We are turning in our rompers and shorts this week for tutus! The girls have their big dance recital this coming Friday and we all can’t wait. It’s Abby’s first dance recital, too, so we’re all anxious to see how she does. But until we slip on some tutus, let’s talk rompers!
I am a mega fan of rompers and jumpsuits and that should be no surprise to you all if you’ve been around for awhile. They’re just so dang easy to style and throw on and they give me the freedom to run around with my girls without flashing anyone. I’m currently eyeing this jumpsuit from Madewell and this jumpsuit from Morning Lavender.
The white dot romper in today’s post though is just so dang feminine and fun! To be honest, a lot of people mistake it for a dress when I wear it as it gives the illusion of a swing dress. Being 5’2″ with the shortest waist known to man and a bit of a bust, rompers don’t always flatter my figure. If you’re petite, too though, this romper is a super flattering option for several reasons. For starters, the romper has a vneck line. A vneck elongates your figures and helps you to not look as top heavy. It gives the illusion that your top half is longer than it really is.
The flowy, skirt-like bottom also does wonders for us shorties. Because the fabric is looser around the leg, it actually helps to give the illusion of leaner, longer legs. Then if you pair some heels with it for some height your legs will look even longer. Finally, the best part about this romper is the cinch waist. The ability to cinch your waist automatically gives you that hourglass figure so many of us want!
For all of you that don’t share the same type of body as mine, I recommend you check out this post. This post from last year walks through every female body type and which rompers/jumpsuits would be best suited for you! It’s one of my most read posts and hopefully you’ll find it super helpful!
