how to find the right one for you

Rompers, like most trend items, have their downsides. It is quite difficult to find a romper that flatters your body type, but there are a few tricks to help you out. First, check the torso length, which should be equal or close to the size of your own torso. (If it's too long, the romper will end up looking baggy and unflattering; if it's too short, the bottoms will ride up for an uncomfortable fit.) Then, decide where you'd like the romper to hit on your legs and check the length of the shorts. If you want to be comfortable and conservative, pick a longer length. If you want to show off your legs, pick a shorter length. And if you want the romper to show off your waist, look for ones with belts or belt loops.
Basically there's a romper for every occasion—whether you're heading to a spring wedding, or are just romping around the city. Click through the gallery to see our top picks.
