Regardless of whether they’re short or longer, romper should always fit your lower body well. The waist and hips should be accentuated, and your legs should look elongated. You can dress up elegant, or look casual with a simple romper.
You can measure a romper by placing it on a flat surface, such as a table, and using a measuring tape of some sort. You can also measure certain parts of your body to figure out which romper size will fit you the best. Making these measurements is easy, and well worth your time.
Written below is a simple guide on how to take measurements for a romper properly.
Steps To Measure A Romper
- Chest/ Bust - Measuring the chest width is important if you want the romper to fit across your body well. Place the romper on a flat surface, and measure from one armhole or one armpit area to the other.
- Waist - Measure the waist of your romper by laying it down front-side up on a flat surface, without any wrinkles or lines. Then, using a measuring tape, measure the waistband from end-to-end in a straight line.
- Hip - Measuring the hip area is similar to measuring the waist. The hip area on romper is usually 7-8 inches below the waist.
- Front Rise - The best way to accurately measure the front rise is to lay the romper on a flat surface, like a table or floor, smoothing out the wrinkles and measuring from the waist to the crotch seam.
- Length - With the romper on a flat surface and all wrinkles and lines removed, measure from the tip of the waistband till the end of the pant leg.
- Leg opening - You can measure the leg opening by placing the tip of the tape measure at one end of the opening and pulling it to the other. However, the leg area will also depend on the style of jumpsuit you would like to purchase.
Steps To Measure Yourself For A Romper
For the perfectly fitted romper, correctly and accurately measuring yourself is important as well. Here’s how you can do so.
- Measure The Waist - Take a measuring tape and place it around your waist carefully. Make sure that you measure your natural waist, which is usually the narrowest part of your torso.
- Measure Your Hips - Placing the tape measure on one end of your hip, encircle it around your hips and measure the circumference of the widest part of your hips.
- Measure Your Length - Stand in a straight, natural posture, and from the middle of your waist, measure till the area you want your romper to end. The length will depend on the type of romper you want.
- Measure Your Inseam - Place the tip of the tape on your crotch and pull it down to your ankles. Make sure to wear a pair of shoes when measuring the inseam, preferably a pair that you wear most often.
- Measure Your Thigh - Choose the widest area of your thigh, and then place the tip of the tape measure on the front and wrap it around the thigh and bring to the end on the front again, similar to measuring your waist and hips.
- Measure Your Sleeve - Put your hand on your hip, such that your arm is bent at the elbow. By placing the tip of measuring tape on your shoulder, drag the end to your wrist. Measure till the area you want your romper sleeve to end.
- Measure Your Torso Length - Stand in a straight, natural posture, and from the top of your shoulder, measure till the hip area.
- Measure Your Chest/Bust - Take a measuring tape and place it around the chest or bust carefully, measuring the widest area of the chest. This might be difficult to do yourself, so take the help of a friend for an accurate measurement

Tips For Making Measurements
- Ensure that all the measurements are made with the romper placed on a smooth surface, like a table or floor, and all wrinkles smoothened out.
- Do not hold the tape measure too tightly or loose while measuring. It should wrap around your body well.
- Make sure that all the measurements are as accurate as possible.
- Consult an international sizing chart as each country or region has its own sizing rules. Brands differ in sizing as well. So it is important to match your measurements with their sizing guide.
- Always refer to the sizing guide mentioned by a brand/store.
