Awesome costume and great price
It is an awesome outfit! I dressed up to go to a "Speakeasy". It was well made too. I love Spirit Halloween!
Excited to wear this
I bought this a little early for Halloween but it is perfect! I am between a size 10 and 12 and the size Large fits very well. It is a quality costume without breaking the bank.Be advised the return process if you buy the wrong size is not very simple.

I recommend this
Wore to a gatsby party, this exceeded my expectations, got lots of compliments. I didn't wear the accessories just as a dress with fishnets & it was a hit!
Great Fit and Value
This costume fit perfectly and the quality was really good. I got many compliments.
Perfect Costume for My 20's Night Out
By Jay the Hipster

I usually go up a size when buying costumes. I am normally a size medium (5'10, 145) but had to get a small in this dress. It fit perfectly and was only slightly snug in the bust section. The quality of the dress was surprisingly adequate for the price and the headband was a nice touch. The gloves are a bit bigger if you are petite. But having long arms and small hands, my gloves stayed just fine thanks to the ruching on the side. I paired this with black beads, silver earrings and a white boa, making my entire costume under $40 this year!
Be careful with sizing on this costume! Runs small
By Roxy Hart
from Walnut Creek
I wear an 8 usually but I have hips and a bust. This size 8-10 billing itself as a medium was unbearably tight in the bust and under the armpits. It cut into my chest, turned my breasts into flattened pancakes and made me fill like I was bound in duck tape. Unwearable. Great for someone with no breasts or hips but if you are curvy, you'll have to go up a size and try to see if it fits. Also, the gloves that come with this are baggy and look silly. I ended up going in the store and buying a lovely, fitted pair of long black gloves that I was able to try on. I will have to give this costume away or save it for my daughter. Disappointing because it looks good...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
ridiculously large gloves for a size small dress
from Chicago, IL
About Me Bargain Shopper, Comfort-Oriented
I'm usually a size 2/4, athletic build, 115lbs on a 5'3" frame. I got a size small and it fit perfectly, however I feel like the gloves were mixed up and I got the plus size gloves or something. They did not fit my arms AT ALL. The fingers were too big, the fabric was baggy everywhere, and it just fell down bunched up around my wrists. I felt like the dress was pretty good quality for the price, no drippy fringe or anything like that. Easy to put on and take off. The headpiece isn't anything to rave about, but it wasn't terrible either. I was surprised the feather maintain its shape, so, kudos to that. If you have thin and toned arms, BEWARE, the gloves will absolutely not fit you.
I am so happy!!!!!
For a Great Gatsy night at ballroom dancing studio. It is very nice, size Large fit very well (I am 5'5" and 154 lbs.). I will use the headband. The dress is a conservative (ie not too low on top and skirt not too short), but it is cute! I have very long white gloves, long white beads and a red bao. Flattering for someone with a tummy...
About Me Bargain Shopper
I always go up a size with costumes in general so I did with this one and it fits perfect. It's a fun flapper dress that covers nicely.
I received so many great compliments on this dress. Most couldn't believe how little I paid. It fit very, very well.
Absolutely worth buying!
This dress is SO cute and affordable! I had priced fringe to make my own dress but the fringe alone cost more than the costume which even comes with the accessories. And it fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend this costume.

I think the costume is nice; I had read reviews that it ran small however I did not encounter a problem with that. I recommend buying a separate head piece as the one included is not very attractive.
About Me Classic
These flapper dresses look much better on an apple shaped gal than a pear. If you have good legs and your top is a similar size to your bottom, go for it. I'm pear shaped and in order for it to fit my bottom I had to buy a large, which is much too big for my top. I took in the top, and it works well now, though. The fringe goes all the way around and is flattering. The quality is reasonable. The gloves and headband are meh. I spent as much on this as I would for a dress I'd wear many times, though, and this dress, while not of disposable quality, won't stand for much wear.
Perfect for my dance troupe!

Spirit Halloween comes through again with just the right costume pieces. My little dance troupe has a cute little Twenties routine that these will be perfect for. Although we will be adding some additional rhinestone accents, these dresses provide a great base to start from and would be quite nice even without the added bits.

I bought this dress for a Halloween costume party and I Love it! it is very well made, comfortable, not too revealing and fun to wear. I am 5'6, 165 pounds and the Large was a perfect fit. Be prepared to buy new gloves, as the ones that come with this dress are a weird fit, but the headband is really cute. Great costume for the money!
Decent Quality for the Price...
By South Georgia Mom
About Me Bargain Shopper, Conservative
I actually bought this for my 18-yr old daughter for a 20's day she had for homecoming at school. The size chart is not correct though. The outfit is a straight cut dress. I got her the large, so it measured the same through the bust, waist and hips, which was 40 inches. It was a perfect fit for her, however. Medium quality outfit. Perfect for just dressing up for Halloween or a fun event.

Wore it to a Halloween party and it was perfect. Bought another headpiece and didn't use gloves. I accessorized on my own. The dress is a thumbs up!

About Me Classic, Trendy
Bought this dress for a Halloween party. Tried it on in the store which helped for sizing. I am 5'4' 165lbs small c bust I tried on the large which fit great through the hips and stomach but the top bust was too big and had long shoulder straps. The medium fits great it's a little snug through the hips but looks way better. The length is a little shorter about 5 inches above the knee. Very flattering on stomach- I've had 2 kids.
Flapper dress too small
By Cheryl 209

Only 103 pounds but the small dress was too tight. Was supposed to fit up to 120 pounds. Got the larger ice and it was fun at the party!
About Me Classic, Comfort-Oriented
I bought this costume for a RoaringTwenties dance that is coming up in a few weeks. I've tried it on a few times and it looks great. I have lost a few pieces of fringe, so it's important not to put any undue stress on them. Things I like: The fringe goes all the way around and isn't just in the front. There is some stretch to the dress and it looks really cute. Things I don't like: the accessories. The gloves are a joke and I had to find new ones to go with the costume. They have elastic bands at the end and made my hands look like classic Mickey Mouse. The bottom line is that this is a great costume at a hard to beat price. It's better than many others that are out there, just don't buy it for the gloves.
I love this dress

Cute Flapper dress/little small
from Farmington, NM
The dress is very cute. It is not really true to regular size. A large is probably like a small. I was able to let one of the other girls in my dance group wear it. I will order a bigger size.I am usually a 10-12 and am having to order a plus size.

Great one time wear costume!

About Me Adventurous, Bargain Shopper, Classic, Comfort-Oriented, Trendy
I wore the outfit to a costume party, it got a lot of compliments and I dressed it up well, The only problem was that I got a small, I'm usually a 2-4 an the costume said 4-6 and it was to tight and very short... So the sizes were a little off.. And the gloves that came with the outfit were stupid an way unrealistic. I would suggesting buyin other gloves.

About Me Adventurous, Bargain Shopper
This was a great bargain - you get the dress and gloves as well as the headband. I scored a 4 because the headband is pretty lame. I suggest you buy another from here because the one included is pretty sad. As others commented, it does run small. I am usually a size 4 (small) but based upon reviews I ordered a medium and it fit. If I had ordered a small it would not have fit. This was perfect for a work costume contest. It wasn't too short. I am 5'1" and it came to just above my knees. The coverage up top was good as well. I have very small hands so of course the fingers on the gloves were long but it didn't take away from the costume. I did not have any problems with the gloves falling down, they have elastic at the top to hold them up. I purchased a feather boa and tommy gun to go with my outfit, a little gangsta flapper. It went over very well. I took second place!
A tight fit

Ordered a small on basis of sizing 4/6 instead of medium 8-/10. Runs on the smaller 4 size. No give to fabric. Fun to wear, very comfortable.

I wore this to a halloween party. Loved it!! I added a short slip because it can seen a little shear around the bottom. It does run small, so order at least one size up. well made and a great value. Got lots of compliments.

Chintzy Headband - GREAT look!!
By Boss Lady
from Orlando, FL
The only thing I didn't like was the headband, it should have been a continuous band instead of ending in elastic only.
from St. Matthews, SC
Overall this was a wonderful costume....it fit great and looked awesome. I added a few accessories to complete the outfit. I had more compliments than I could handle!
