Baby rompers are loose-fitting versions of onesie style undershirts without all the snaps. Rompers are typically one-piece outfits that stretch over your baby's head and snap closed at the crotch, with no snaps at the shoulder or at the back of the neck. They are comfortable for babies; there are no shirt bottoms creeping up or waist lines slipping down creating bulky rolls of fabric to lie on. Any one-piece outfit whether short-sleeved or long-sleeved is typically a romper.

Rompers come in short-sleeved, long-sleeved, shorts, and long pant styles, keeping your baby covered year round. They are typically made of 100% cotton, but can also be a blend of cotton and polyester and are usually made of thicker cotton as they are a complete baby outfit and mostly worn on their own.

Most rompers are made with smooth, flat seams so your baby's skin won't be irritated. Flat seams also prevent your baby's skin from chafing. Most are quite soft and comfortable for your baby to wear. They are loose-fitting and provide ample room for your baby to move or romp around.

Rompers are available in a variety of colors and designs. They can be patterned, striped, solid color, or decorated with pictures. Short rompers can be worn alone over a diaper in the warmer months offering just enough protection from the wind while not overheating your baby. They are uncomplicated and open easily for diaper changes, making them a favorite piece of summer baby clothing.

Long-sleeved rompers can be loose- or form-fitting. Form-fitting rompers are perfect under pants and skirts in the colder months. They keep your baby's body protected from the elements, unlike t-shirts or long-sleeved shirts that creep up exposing your baby's belly and back to the cold. The thicker cotton keeps your baby warm without overheating. Loose-fitting rompers are perfect from fall to spring as they offer the same easy-access to your baby's diaper, but offer warmth and full body protection from cold winds.

Rompers are machine washable and machine dryable. They are easily washed and wear well over time, making them an affordable and long-lasting article of baby clothing.
