Let's Get Real Mamas

I’m sure by now that you’ve heard of the RompHim and how it’s the latest men's wear trend.

It’s pretty much the male romper that nobody asked for…

In case you’ve been under a rock the past few weeks or have much better things to do than scroll the social media feeds, here’s a little background.

What is a RompHim?

It’s the latest trend in men’s wear.

It’s a romper.

For guys.

According to them, it’s the mac daddy of rompers with all the bells and whistles.


Front shirt pocket, adjustable waist tabs, zippered back pockets and fly and deep front pockets just to name a few…

Romphim started seeking funding on Kickstarter on 5/9 for this project and needed $10,000 dollars to start wowing the world with their man one pieces and they’ve surpassed to date and have raised $364,240.

Check out the Kickstarter campaign for yourself!

They’ve still got 2 weeks left in their campaign, but I think we should brace ourselves because


Well, out there it is. But I can tell you one thing...

One place it won’t be happening tho, is THIS HOUSE.


And not just because I think that to qualify to wear a romper in my home you must have a have va-jay-jay but because there’s at least 5 reasons I can think of off the top of my head why my boys cannot handle the romper life.

If you’re a mom of boys…let me know if we’re on the same page!


I don’t want a sneaky peeky of any male parts or boy butt cheeks. Anyone who has worn a romper knows how they like to ride up your legs! The trendy outfit seems to be a little too fitted and a bit short for comfort. My boys always seem to be hunting a down a pair of underwear and I am not even trying to picture them in a romper sans draws.



Lotion is a lesson they haven’t mastered. I’m just gonna outright say it…They’re ashy. Ashy joints here, there, everywhere. It’s not for lack of cocoa butter, shea butter, Nivea or coconut oil in my house, either.


I really question how they’ll choose to use the bathroom. They’re already lazy as can be when it comes to poppin up the toilet seat to take a whiz. You’re trying to tell me they’re gonna have to fully unzip/unbutton to use the toilet? Get out of town. My shortcut sons are going to try and push the shorts to the side and pee out the bottom. And that can’t possibly end well for the floor or the romper.


And let’s stay on that topic for a minute…when they go to the bathroom, they’ll have to get fully undressed if they’re in a romper. That means, the whole outfit will hit the floor. Imagine this in a public restroom. I rest my case.


I don’t want them walking around looking like giant sized toddlers. In my house, the rompers are reserved for the ladies and Atlas, who is two. No one rocks a romper like a cute baby. And Atlas’ romper card expires in September so he better enjoy it while it last. ?


Now my question to you about this new 'men's wear' is this…

Will your son be rocking the latest fashion in men’s wear this summer?

Why or why not?

Let me know your opinion on the latest men's wear in the comments!

  1. Hahahahaa! Hands down, this is the most enjoyable post I’ve read all day. What a fun sense of humor. But seriously, these are all valid points for not purchasing mens rompers for your children. I think it’s a one-season fad. Or at least let’s cross our fingers and hope so!

  2. Okay, you are so right, not only is this a very poor fashion trend for men, it really is impractical for kids. I put my daughter in a romp-her today and we went to have lunch by a nearby lake. The restrooms were clean, but you know…lake bathrooms and I had to strip her down every time she had to go potty. It’s enough to make you want to drink your lunch. No, thank you! Rompers be gone!

  3. Haha your post was a great read. I don’t have any children at the minute, or any plans to have any in the near future. I dread to think what sort of weird fashion trends will be around if/when I have kids!

  4. This is true and funny! Rompers look super cute in babies, because even for girls(I have a 4yo) it’s a hassle to tinkle in a public restroom with a romper. So no rompers in my house 🙂 really liked this article.

  5. Lol what if they make a romphim with a peepee hole lol that’ll help tremendously. My vision of the romphim would be like the jumpsuits they currently have now. Which are really cute if worn correctly lol

  6. Seriously, this is hilarious! HAHAHAHA! I am so with you (even though I have no boys), just a daughter. And I don’t want my man and I to accidentally be wearing the same romper or worse, his booty hanging out for the world to see!

  7. Hahaha! The whole bathroom thing is why I don’t wear rompers myself! I can totally see my 3yo trying to pee out of the leg of the romper, like your boys!

  8. ah hahaha. This post is cute. My toddler boy wears rompers all the time. He’s so freaking adorable in it, but he won’t be wearing ghtem once we start potty training. Even females don’t want to deal with that hassle – the hassle of using the bathroom

  9. I was seriously hoping that this trend wasn’t going to take off, but I am interested to see how it plays out. When I first saw it on social media, my immediate thought was how creative men would get when going to the washroom! haha

  10. Oh my goodness this was so entertaining! I was never a fan of the male romper and it was not going to be introduced in my house past my 1 year old, but I was very curious when I saw the title of this post. NOW IT MAKES SENSE!! Loved it!

  11. This was so funny to me. I loved the gifs. I actually really like to wear rompers, and love to put my almost two year old son in them too. But, I’m not sold on them for guys. To each their own though, I guess. Still, hilarious post. The public bathroom one was my favorite!

  12. Super funny!! I do not like rompers at all. I barely let my child wear one. I guess they are running out of ideas in men’s fashion!

  13. What a laugh! I have never understood rompers for girls, Let alone boys!?!? Craziness. My main problem is, like you said, the bathroom issue. I’d never put a girl in one as she would have to get fully undressed to pee… add in a girl who waits too long to pee or has crappy aim and you’ve got the recipes for major disaster. You won’t find me buying a romper for my daughter or hopefully, future son! My husband would kill me if I did or even if I bought one for him! Hahahahaha that would not fly! Crazy clothing trends need to GO

  14. I cant believe they have raised that much money. Who actyallynthink this is a good idea?!?! Loved this post, so funny! Munson isn’t potty trained yet biy i cant even imagine my 8 year nephew taking that thing off to pee. Highly doubtful!

  15. I’m with You! I have 2 boys and not that they’re interested, but they definitely won’t be wearing a romphim for all the reasons you stated. Plus, a romper is for women only, in my opinion.

  16. I have a baby daughter who loves a good romper! But I can’t imagine my 7 year old brother wearing one ?

    I could just about accept the older kids and adult onesies… but common guys, we don’t need to carry on wearing baby clothes


  17. LOL! So many valid points. I don’t have a son, but I definitely would be concerned with the romper hitting the floor in a public bathroom. EW! Men don’t always aim well so lord knows that thing would be tainted. I couldn’t rock with this trend either. Too much for young boys.

  18. Haha! This is awesome! I agree with all that you mentioned…can’t imagine my son coming any where near a romper. Let’s just say it would encourage him to be in the nude more often than he already is 😉
