The Lust List: Let’s Romp Around

The romper, a very tricky subject.  Initially, I was a non-believer. (Rompers take all the fun out of outfit creation, I mused. It must be so hard to find one that fits, I wondered. You’ll look like a slutty tween, I gasped.)

However, my sentiments have since changed and my heart has warmed to the romper.  Frankly, at this point, I have no choice, because they are everywhere.

They make life easier when you set out to romp around the city all day. All you need is a romper, some cute gladiator sandals, sunglasses, and your purse. Out the door in five minutes? Heck yes.

First things first, a romper is not something one orders in the mail.  They need to be tried on. This is a shirt and pants combo—so bust, waist, crotch, leg, hip and all other odd female body measurements must be taken into consideration.  (My primary fear is avoiding EBS (elongated butt syndrome)). As mentioned above, it is a tricky thing to fit. However, the loose silky ones seem to make this a bit easier.

A lot of rompers are incorporating other spring trends: ruffles and florals. Here are our picks:

  1. I wasn’t sold on rompers either, but I’ve finally come around and am in search of the perfect one! The one on Shop Bop is great, but probably a bit out of my price range… 🙂

  2. Hi Rachel,
    Yeah, I think Urban, the master of all things trendy, has dozens upon dozens of them, so it is the best bet for an affordable romper, since it’s such a trendy item! Bloomingdales also has a ton, which vary in price. These were just my faves. 🙂
