With all the new baby lingo and to-do list in full swing, no doubt there’s some baby-related questions living rent-free in your head. You’re definitely not alone; infant clothing jargon can be quite confusing! If you don’t know the difference between a baby romper, onesie, bodysuit and jumpsuit, we’ll lay it all out for you here. Plus, you’ll be able to accurately hint at what needs crossing off your baby registry *wink, wink.
Before we explain the difference between a baby onesie vs romper vs jumpsuit vs bodysuit, we first need to establish what each of those baby fash terms really mean.
What is a romper?
Creeping into the baby fashion sphere in the 1900s as playwear, rompers are available in both adult and baby sizes and are your comfy playwear go-to clothing. To put it simply, a romper is an article of clothing that consists of a top with attached shorts or pants. It’s a complete and lightweight outfit that’s been hailed as one of the most comfiest articles of clothing, and is usually made from soft, breathable material fabrics like cotton (or organic cotton in our case).
Much like rompers, jumpsuits are one-piece items of clothing, however, they are usually long and cover the legs, while rompers can be either short or long legged. So they can really be referring to the exact same item of clothing!
