Rompers, although a versatile item, looks a bit off-putting if it doesn't suit the wearer. When shopping for rompers, one has to take note of a few points to make it work for you. I personally love them but a good fitting romper is hard to come by these days. I say this because I've tried on way too many of them only to disappoint myself more than half of the time. Some were too loose at the shoulder and chest area while others were too tight and short at the seams they made me look like I was wearing adult diapers. And we certainly don't want that!

But should you find yourself looking for one, I suggest you keep a few points in mind;

Shoulder and chest area: Not too loose, not too tight.
Rompers give you the convenience of a dress, and the shoulder and chest areas bring the outfit together. It is crucial that it fits you perfectly else you will have to struggle with it constantly. And by struggle I mean tugging and yanking and pulling just to make it stay in place throughout the day ( and that gets really, really annoying, believe me.) So make sure that the straps fall perfectly on your shoulders and the chest area is fit enough for it not to drape all over your front yet loose enough give you just enough room to move around freely.

Crotch: Something that some girls don't really pay attention to. 
Make sure that it isn't too loose on you to make it look like a harem or too tight that anyone who's a 100m away from you can perfectly draw out that obvious V in front. Unless of course you want to look like a baby who just got out of her playpen, then by all means, skip this point. But if you are like me who is very particular of this area, pick a romper with thick garters at the waist because it distributes almost equal ruching across the whole circumference giving less chances of awkward gathered cloth either at the front or at the back (Or pick one with a "flap" just like mine!) It makes adjusting the whole thing a lot easier too compared to the smaller ones. The bottom part should also be loose enough to let you move around freely but fits just right at the thighs to also give you the much needed coverage a romper can provide.

Rompers are also very easy to style; you can either dress it down with lace-up flats for a casual day look or pair it with heels for the perfect date night outfit. Either way, wear accessories that doesn't add too much detail to the already busy look of your one-piece wonder. After all, a romper by itself is already a standout piece on its own.
