A Casual Jumper

There's a wide range of jumpers and rompers available these days. I know that some women wear them as dressy clothing, but I'm a huge fan of jumpers and rompers for casual wear.  I have already worn this jumper three times since buying it less than a month ago.  I wore it to MyGym for a morning toddler-and-me class.  I wore it to a big outdoor train fair type thing (and wore said toddler on my back in a carrier for part of that), and wore it to my Mom's house, where I ran around in the backyard playing catch in this jumper.  Rompers and jumpers are so comfortable!  And this one has pockets!  I even find myself changing into it at home, just to hang out and relax at home in the evenings and on weekends.

I'd say the key is to find ones that fit perfectly.  The torso needs to be the right length.  You don't want the crotch to be riding up, nor do you want the waist to be down at your hips.  I actually tried one adorable romper from Nordstroms that made my hips look gigantic.  I didn't even realize that was possible.  I'm sure there's someone that it would look amazing on, but wow - it was not good on me.  And I've tried many that were just way too baggy in the torso for me.  

Also, since it's a lot of the same fabric, I like sleeveless for jumpers.  Otherwise I think it'd be a little overwhelming.
I know even with a perfect fit, this look isn't for everyone, but I love it.  And I do get actual compliments!  Just not from everyone.  :)
