"This is a very, very nice quality costume, but even the XL was too tight. It's my experience that virtually ALL the costumes you get from these sites are too small/not true to size. I may be a tad overweight, but there is NO WAY an XL shouldn't fit me. i wear a size 12 for goodness sake. I kept it, but didn't wear it, with the hopes that I might lose a pound or two for next year. There is no material to let it out, so I have to count on losing weight."
