"I loved this costume but was concerned about the size and shortness of the skirt after reading other reviews. I thought this one was cuter than the competitor's so I took a chance. However, the biggest size available L(14-16) was much smailler than competitor's XL(14-16) even though numerically they should have been the same. Also, the material was not as stretchy so it didn't have any extra room. If you are thin and petite this would be great. I'm not so I ended up returning this one and getting the competitor's, which fit better but was still too short for my comfort. I added a row of black ruffle to the bottom and it was perfect!"
