"I was trying to find a costume that covers my body so that it was appropriate to wear for work and to a school event with my children. I had a hard time finding a costume in the stores and I ordered this one. The price was very reasonable and I also had the option of returning it so I had nothing to lose. I tried it on and loved it! It has a tie around the waist so It is easy to adjust to different sizes. The same goes for the top (vest) portion. I like that this is all one piece and it stays in place. Although the material, of the skirt especially, is somewhat itchy, I will be wearing something underneath so the material will not be touching my skin. Overall a great buy and I can't wait to wear it in a few days!"
