"This costume is exactly what we were looking for this year. The fit does run small my daughter normally wears a 6/6X, but after reading other reviews I order the next size larger-very glad I did. the front of the dress laces up and we had to loosen it quite a bit to get the dress over her head. So if in doubt order the size larger-especially if you need to layer for colder weather. The white tulle and satin shredded shoulder pieces get tangled easily-but go with the tattered look of the costume."
