I'm 5'1'' and I'm looking for a cute and petite romper for $50 or less. I love the vintage, lace, chic look and I like the sweetheart neckline. I don't like my rompers to have straps, i prefer strapless. I found one on Forever21 that is black with a print short bottom, but I didn't like how long the "bottom" part of the romper was -- I wasn't sure if that would really look good on a short person haha. Can you help me out?! :) Thanks for helping us short girls find the right clothes that we see on all the tall models, haha!"
Hey Chelsea! When searching rompers for you, I concentrated on finding your strapless, sweetheart neckline and a "short shorts" hem. Combined, they should help your romper of choice elongate you. Well, at least they'll get you as elongated as 5'1" will allow! Pair your romper with strappy wedge sandals and you'll look as svelte and willowy as a model in no time! -Layla
