    Oh I love rompers! They’re too cute! I’m too short and stubby to rock one myself but I love buying them for my girls. :)

    all right, this may just be me being on team fat girl – but I think they look better on the plus size model. I think you NEED to have some massive curves to compensate for the boxy look!

    Go team fat girls! :p

    And what about the bathroom issue? I for one, do not enjoy sitting down in just my bra while I try to keep said romper from touching the unclean floor!

    lol so true. I think I tried on once and was like wtf. never.

    BUT I know one girl who pulls it off every.single.time. I think she’s a 00

    I loved rompers when the girls were smaller, and I mourned (on a small level) having to take back some bubble suits I’d bought them for this summer when Baby A started wearing undies this spring. I was momentarily drawn to them at Tar.get [for the girls]…but then I thought about the bathroom issue. I don’t want to put any more obstacles between A and the potty! 😉

      Yeah- that’s the same reason I put my girls in tankinis instead of one piece bathing suits

    I love rompers on little bitty girls, but I won’t even put them on my 7 & 8 year olds. I can just see them dropping them into the toilet every time they pull them down to pee. Thanks for the laugh!

    I actually love them – yes really. I don’t know how they’d look on me but I think they look cute in the pics :)

    When I saw the photos I first thought you were in favor of those things. Glad I read what you had to say. I last wore a romper over 20 years ago and I swore, “never again”. The bathroom thing was a problem and not for the reason mentioned by Christine. I just had a hard time getting the top down when I was in a hurry. Then there’s the fact you can’t move your arms without them riding up in the crotch and at times actually hurting. Give me a top that I don’t have to remove to pee and moves independently from the bottom.

    I totally rocked a light blue, terry cloth romper when I was 6. I’m pretty sure I wore it to my birthday party that year. I’m also pretty sure I had one in pink terry cloth, because I wore that to my brother’s birthday. And I sort of remember my mother sewing them for me. That was 33 years ago! Sometimes, things should just stay gone and buried. I saw adults wearing them a few times out this summer. One woman looked sort of cute, the other looked awful. It’s a trend I hope does not return next summer.

    My 15 year old wants a pair of these. She is stick thin, but I still don’t think it is a good look.

    See, sometimes I’ll see them advertised and think they look cute, but that I can’t pull it off (or don’t want to…just thinking about the bathroom issues…) BUT, every time I’ve seen someone IRL wear one I’ve noticed, I don’t really think anyone can pull it off. They should really stick to the size 2T and under demographic.
