I always thought they were the same thing but I just saw an American Apparel ad which featured what looked to me like a sweater but they called it a jumper.

_ Any help?

hmm, i thought they were sort of the same thing too. i figured that rompers had short pant legs and jumpers had long ones but i could be wrong.
and i’ve never heard the term playsuit before

They are all the same thing, unless you take into consideration the British meaning of jumper, which is a sweater.

I think it’s just different words used for different countries. Here in Australia we don’t usually say ‘romper’ or ‘playsuit’ which mean the same thing, we often say ‘jumpsuit’ instead!! When we say ‘jumper’ it means the same thing as a sweater or a pullover :P

Jumper here in New Zealand is a sweater
Romper is strapless playsuit
Playsuit is a sleeved playsuit.

haha the last two is MY own definition :P

from my understanding jumpers are the shorts or pants but with the buckles at the shoulder or a buttoning at the crotch area, mainly worn by kids. romper is a slip on or button up short. and a playsuit is a slip on or button up pant.

Jumpers are pullover and sweaters (usually knited)
Playsuits are all-in-one with shorts also known as a romper
Jumpsuit is all-in-one with trousers if you get what I mean

Those are the British meanings :)

To me, a jumper is a knitted sweater…a sweater is made of a jersey type fabric.
a playsuit is short, a romper is something a baby wears and a jumpsuit is a longer version of a playsuit…so like trousers :) xxx

Hi ladies, a jumper is the same as a sweater. A playsuit is a romper, or a piece of clothing where the top and the shorts are joined together, these can be short or long sleeve but always have shorts on the bottom. See the below link:

A jumpsuit is the same as a playsuit but has long legs:

We hope this helps! :) xx
