"I saw a couple of other reviewers comment that the costume ran small for them. For me, I found the size to be accurate. I normally wear a size 8, ordered a medium, and the fit was fine. But I was disppointed in how thin the material is. I wanted to wear this in an elementary school parade, but it would not be appropriate unless I wore something underneath. Also, if you're not in great shape (flat stomach, good thighs), this costume is not flattering. You would need Spanx or some other body-shaper. I ended up returning this, although I do appreciate how easy Celebrate Express makes returns."
"I don't usually buy costumes that are "one size fits most," but this outfit looked so fun, I was willing to risk it. The packaging says "one size fits up to a size 14/16. I'm 130 pounds and 5' 6" tall, and usually wear a size 8. I was concerned that the dress would be overly large, but I like the fit. If I gain weight in the future, there is room for growth! There is a sash that ties in the back, so you can tighten or widen around your waist as needed. The dress hangs about 3-4 inches off the ground for me. If you are petite or a size 2-4, the dress will probably swim on you. The picture on the website is refreshingly accurate. Many costumes at this price point tend to be flimsy. The dress and the vest are both substantial and well-made for this price. I don't have to worry about this dress being see-through, fussy, or lasting only one Halloween season. It's very comfortable to wear. I'm supplementing the costume with some colored glasses and a peace medallion, which are not included. The headband shown IS included. I'll be wearing this outfit to a Halloween party and intend to have fun!"
