I know the price may seem a little much for a Halloween costume, but as a plus size girl- I wanted something cute and fun. This costume is absolutely the coolest costume I have ever owned. The quality of it is top notch. Definitely not a cheapie- which is why so many of the other costumes cost less. I am a size 20, but am DD and have a larger midsection- I got the 3x and it works well b/c there is a tie to make the dress fit just right. I always tend to go bigger on something like this. I just need to be the thigh his and I am set! I highly recommend this! [...]

The main reason I bought this costume was for a presentation of an Italian folk dance. Everybody loved it. (side note: It's kind of short to dance in so I wore bicker shorts under so no underwear would show. Oh and while putting it on one of the bows on the sleeve fell off but that is an easy fix). On Halloween night my friend is throwing a costume party and I'm most definitely wearing this one. I'll look like a little German girl. Too cute.

Does not fit

By Koiria

Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

Size chart says the 3-4xl fits up to a size 26. I am a size 26 and it comes no where close to fitting! It needs like an extra foot of fabric If I wanted to zipper it close! I'm so disappointed.

    Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

    I'm a bit on the thicker side.. and this costume made me look awesome. I'm so glad I bought this costume. My bf absolutely loved it as well. I only have 2 issues with this costume.. one wold be the chest area. I was spilling out all over, I guess that's why bf liked it? Ha ha. And two, the skirt part seemed a bit long. I'm 5'7 and I bought the 3xl. So that may be the reason why. But overall I'd give this costume 8 out of 10 stars.

      Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

      I got this dress off of a friend for a Halloween party and she said it was kind of loose on her and I had nothing to wear. I saw it on this site and I was scared about the length of the skirt but when I put it on it came just above my knee and I liked it that way. It made me feel cute and sexy for once but it was still covering up the essentials. I was always able to pull it right over my head without opening the zipper.

        Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

        This is a very cute costume. Length is perfect, not too short(which I was worried about because I am 5'8") I was pretty impressed with the fabric. It wasn't cheaply made. My only complaint would be that it definitely runs small. I normally wear 1X/2X but ordered the 3X/4X just to be safe (figured easier to take in than return) and it JUST fits. So if you are on the fence I would definitely go with the next size up. Can't wait to wear it to a party...hubby loves it too ;)

        Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

        I bought this because I liked it online and leg avenue is usually pretty cute/sexy. Maybe because it was plus size they assume that we want full coverage or something but the dress part went down to my mid calf, which was not flattering at all. Im not that short either so Im not sure if it was a mistake in the manufacturing or what, but I returned it and wore my pirate costume from last year. It was cute from the waist up though!

        Comments about Spirit Gretchen Adult Womens Plus Size Costume:

        I was really scared of the size. I am 5'7 and a size 22. The size chart says 3x/4x fits sizes 22-26 so I figured I would be fine. When I checked the measurements they were WAY too small. They must be the costume as is because when I put it on its quite stretchy and was almost big. Also you can tighten it by tying the straps torture or adjusting the lace up corset which is great! Also I was so worried the skirt woild be too short but its perfect. I read it was too thin and I agree on top the white is see through a bit (esp with my black staples bra.. need to find a way to layer) however the skirt was fine in fullness and I am returning the petticoat I bought with It.

        Overall it is supercute and sexy without being overly obvious and obscene. My boyfriend LOVED it! It's so rare I get excited about a Halloween costume as plus sizes are limited but now i cant wait!

            I wore this to work (I worked at one of the many Spirit retail locations) and it was cute and comfortable. However, the apron became tattered just from handling a few items with sharp edges, like the corners of item boxes. It took less than a day. Otherwise, it's a nice costume.

                  I am a size 1x-2x D 185lbs. Never have I actually found a costume that fit me perfectly, untill I got this one! It was easy to put on, comfertable to wear, and most importantly I feel great wearing it!

                  I love how it is cute and fun without being overally revealing, like other costumes. I would recommend this costume to anyone who is a little "bigger" and wants to wear something that fits just right and looks amazing.

                  I couldn't be happier with this costume. My only con, is that halloween is only once a year, because I want to wear this costume all the time!

                  I bought this costume for Halloween. I am VERY glad I did! Not only was it comfortable but many people commented on it! I am 5'7 and a size 16, it fit fantastic with plenty of room and I was able to tighten the corset top to accentuate my assets. I also bought the double pink petticoat to help fluff out the skirt and it did make the skirt a bit shorter but not too short. I also bought the beer stein purse and the knee high stockings with bows to complete the outfit. The only negative I can find is that the material is a bit thin, but I am in Florida so it worked perfect for me. You will truly enjoy this costume!

                  I bought this costume for our annual Halloween Party. It was very comfortable, colourful and fun. Everyone thought it was great! I had a lot of fun wearing it and plan to wear it again!

                  I bought a crinolin to go under the skirt to give it a little extra volume...but be careful...the skirt is a good length while standing...but sitting and bending over pose some difficulty!

                  The costume itself was very well made and the materials used wasn't the usual cheap stuff used for costumes.

                    This was a great fit for plus size (I'm size 16) and I purchased 1-2x, it fit great with some room left over. The white tights are a neat idea, but I used knee high socks. White knee high stockings would have been great, even better if they had been supplied with the costume. Otherwise it looked great on and I received a lot of compliments. It was fun!

                      I am a size 20 with DDD's and so purchased a size bigger like previous reviewer had suggested. Fit couldn't have been better and everyone loved it. I will be looking forward to another chance to wear this outfit.

                        this costume is very cute. i wish they would include a crinoline skirt to go under the dress so it would poof out more. i ordered the shoes also. they are more comfortable than i thought they would be.

                            I'm a size 16/18 250lbs and 38C 5'4 and this outfit was PERFECT!!

                            I read reviews from other sites about the bust part being to loose but it fit perfectly showing a little cleavage!! I don't know if my butt is too wide or something but I can see my butt!! It's all good!! Love this outfit and I even bought a white petticoat for underneath to give it an extra oomph!! Love it!!

                                  This was a great costume. I ordered the 3x/4x size and it was too big. I'm typically a 1x (size 18/20) but I ordered up a size due to the comments about costumes typically being smaller. The torso was long and it bunched up. I ended up returning it, but would have kept it if it fit right. The quality was very good, nice materials...so cute! I ordered it with the petticoat and that completed the outfit. I would definitely recommend this as a very cute plus size option.

                                    I was a little worried about buying this, I'm a bigger girl and wanted something cute but didnt want it all hanging out. I was very happy, it looks good, very flattering and not too short.

                                        I really like this costume, it fits, I'm a 3x-4x girl and there aren't MANY costumes out there for a girl my size, and this is just great. I wish the stores in the city carried more of these sizes for the right price. It was good to find a resonably priced (and on sale) outfit for Halloween and other events.

                                          WOW! This was my costume last year. The nice thing was the length of the skirt and the top. I know i cant wear a costume with a deep V, or a really SHORT Skirt.
                                          But the skirt was long enough to still feel sexy and MODEST! As well as the top.
                                          I actually wore it tricker treating with my church! And didn't get in trouble, and Got a ton of Compliments.

                                          SO I LOVED IT! I can't rate it any higher...Probablly the Best Halloween Costume I have ever worn.

                                          And to the parents, who have yonger teen-agers and are wondering if it's too much. I want to say, its really a great costume and worth the investment!
