There’s no way I would wear those, especially for pictures or in public. My boobs would be hanging out in something like that, and they look like pajamas at best. Not something to be wearing around a venue. I think if you really want to go the matching route, you should get leggings and button down shirts or tank tops that can be removed by pulling the straps down.

Love rompers for summer, however I agree with the others, it is VERY hit or miss…. I can’t count the number of rompers I tried on in stores before FINALLY finding one that worked for my body type. The girls would definitely need to try them on first.

No way! If you must do something do the shirts in a light fabric. There is no way in hell I would walk around in those- my boobs would be obscene!

I think they are super cute! I was actually looking for rumpers myself! I think they are more appropriate then robes and wayyyyy cuter than oversized button ups! Do you mind me asking where you found yours?

As a big boobed woman, I’d not be happy in that.

Oh hell no.  As a plus size woman you couldn’t pay me to wear that.

Love it!  I actually plan on buying the exact one the Hayley Paige is wearing in that picture!  I won’t make other people wear them though, unless they want to.  Like others have stated, not everyone feels that their body type is suited for something like that.  

I do find it funny that soem PPs are saying that they don’t find them appropriate, that never crossed my mind!  If it’s good enough for Hayley Paige, it’s good enough for me wink

I would not be pleased if I were asked to wear this, even by a good friend.

I look awful in most rompers  (petite frame but very curvy) & pretty much all of the ladies in my bridal party wouldn’t feel comfortable with the way they look in a romper. I think it depends on your bridal party.

emb5235 :  If you were at all concerned about your bridesmaids comfort as you claim then woukdn’t you let each individual bridesmaid decide what they would be most comfortable wearing for walking around in public in the heat? Expecting your friends to parade around in public in those rompers pictured is ridiculous. They look like skimpy pj’s to me and prohibitive to wearing a bra.

It sounds like you are more concerned with your pictures than their comfort.

All of the women in that pic have what is accepted as conventionally attractive bodies, and I still think they look silly. 

I say a firm ‘no’ to rompers.

Hate rompers with a passion, nobody  over the age of say 6 or 7 should wear them, except maybe as pyjamas.

 And as for wearing them en masse, in semi public  …well I’d  rather  remove   my own appendix with a  sharpened spoon.

emb5235 :  btw, the company that makes those rompers also makes robes and PJ sets that coordinate.  Maybe you can let your girls pick which type they would like to wear?

I hate to beat a dead horse because most commenters here seem to agree on being anti-romper, but I wanted to chime in, first, that I would be so incredibly uncomfortable wearing that and would spend most of the time hiding from the camera. In fact, if a good friend of mine said, “Here’s your romper, wear it for getting ready pics!” I might want to cry.

But I also wanted to point out, if your concern is that robes and tanks are overdone, really what’s overdone is the bridal party getting-ready uniform in general. Frankly, if you want to be unique, at this point you can accomplish that by letting them wear what they want.

Lastly, if you’re still set on coordinated outfits but want to be unique and practical, what about some cute, comfy button-down shirts? Not talking flannel here, get them in a nice breathable fabric, and you could get them in your wedding colors or whatever floats your boat. But keep any wedding-related customization or monogramming off them so they’re truly wearable in the future. I love button-downs when I’m getting makeup and hair done because you don’t have to pull them over your head. And they are a great closet staple.
