"I ordered this hat to go with a pirate costume for Halloween. It was large for my head and probably will be for most girls. My pirate costume came with a bandana so I tied that on first to help the hat fit better. The hat has an attached piece of burgundy fabric that is supposed to look like a bandana (not shown in the picture) that you tie in the back but I don’t think it helped it stay on at all. Also the product picture doesn’t show it but the hat has fake hair braids attached all around the inside to look like Johnny Depp from POTC. Neither the product picture nor description prepared me for that. I thought about retuning the hat and getting another, but in the end I decided to cut the hair out and wear the hat anyway. I think it is a good hat for the price (8.99). All the hats I could find that seemed to be made for women were too expensive to just wear one night. The hat did arrive a little crushed and I never could get it to pop back into shape but in the end it didn’t affect my night."
"I really liked this costume and it got a lot of compliments. I thought it was well made and the materials felt nice and better quality than cheaper costumes. I’m only 5’3” so the dress was a lot longer on me than the model in the picture. I decided to pin one side of the blue skirt up to create a torn look and shorten the skirt a little. I’m 140 lbs. with a petite torso (28” waist, 34B chest). I ordered a small and it was too big for me in the chest and bodice area. At its narrowest spot the small measures 31” around in the waist and 16” across the shoulders. The material does have some stretch and give to it. Ideally, tailoring the costume could have made it fit better but I didn’t want to put more money into it. I used double sided tape to keep the bodice of the dress where I wanted it and a safety pin to gather the extra material in the back. The tan bodice and blue/burgundy skirts are a 1 piece dress that does not have a zipper and goes on over the head. The sash and belt are two separate pieces. The belt is really big and probably won’t have a usable hole for a lot people. I put the belt on, marked the right spot and used scissors to make a hole in the right spot, after that it fit perfectly. I also ordered the Pirates of the Caribbean Adult Deluxe Pirate Hat with Mustache and Goatee (Item #38306) (I only used the hat and cut the fake hair out first) and the Cutlass Sword (Item: #21359). I was very happy with my ordering experience from celebrate express.com"
