History of Romper Suits

The suits are believed to have originated from the United States of America in the 1900’s. They were commonly used by children as playwear due to their light and loose fitting nature. They symbolised a shift from the Victorian era clothes which were somewhat tight fitting. Their designs and styles differed from one state to another and were worn by children from different families to as a symbol of wealth.


In 1950, they became very common in France where women began using them as beachwear. In a gradual but steady manner, romper suits became very famous among toddlers and infants in different countries around the world. In the beginning of the twenty first century, women embraced the romper suit as a fashionable and classy wear. Designers became more innovative and began to come up with different impressive designs and styles. Romper suits have continued to gain more popularity because of their beauty and versatility. They can be comfortably worn during any time of the day or night without loosing the fashionable touch.
