You either love or hate rompers, but if you’re one that hates them have you ever asked yourself why? I’m here to tell you there is a romper for every body type…it’s just about finding the right one for you. I mean as women, we’re hard on ourselves (duh) and have this horrible habit of comparing….but we have to remember that what might work for someone with a different body, does not mean it can’t work for you too! If you have read my ‘Meet Sage‘ page, you know this is a challenge I love most about my blogging career. Taking an idea, trend, look, or garment and finding a way to make it my own regardless of my insecurities.
Since finding rompers for various body types is a common struggle among women, I have teamed up with some of my closest Dallas blogger girlfriends to bring you Rompers for Different Body Types — Dallas blogger edition! Since we can totally relate — each girl has her own reasons for romper of choice, accompanied by both insecurities & also things they love about their individual body types….
Me, SO SAGE
I always look for rompers with a strappy top or plunging neckline, because I have more of a pear shaped body and prefer to draw attention to the smaller part of my body (upper) rather than my legs. I love that this romper can be dressed up with wedges or dressed down with sneakers (my fave) for a more sporty look. Also, having the belted option for days I feel like accentuating my non existent hips = bonus.
My Full Look:
Amanda Miller – THE MILLER AFFECT
” I am 5’11 so it is hard to find rompers that are long enough for me. I like rompers that have a little ruffle or lace at the bottom. They both give the appearance of the romper being longer than it actually is! ” — Amanda Miller, The Miller Affect
Amanda’s Look + More Options:
Christina Beauchamp – FASHION & FRILLS
“I chose this romper because the off the shoulder neckline is universally flattering (and been my favorite neckline for years). Also, the culotte-cut shorts were breezy and not tight on my legs which are my least favorite body part to highlight.” — Christina Beauchamp, Fashion and Frills
Christina’s Look + More Options:
Brooke Burnette – ONE SMALL BLONDE
“I like rompers all around because they work with my short torso. Also, the halter draws attention upwards, which gives me a taller appearance.” — Brooke Burnett, One Small Blonde

Lynlee Poston – GAL ABOUT TOWN
“I have an athletic build and broad shoulders so I always look for rompers that have some type of sleeve and cover my arms, which gives a more feminine look. I also have a long torso so rompers with a cinched or drop waist usually work best with the extra fabric and length.” — Lynlee Poston, Gal About Town
Lynlee’s Look + More Options:
Natalie Keinan – THE FASHION HOUR
“When shopping for rompers it’s important to me that I find ones that are not tight on my thighs or backside since I have curves! I picked this one because it has an elastic waist and the shorts are on the longer side. I also liked that it had short sleeves and buttoned down the front so you can show as little or as much as you want. ” — Natalie Keinan, The Fashion Hour
If you aren’t already romper obsessed, I hope this post encourages you to take a risk and try one that works for your body type. Thank you for reading and as always, feel free to email me with any questions/comments!
