Comments about Spirit Halloween Adult Purple Hooded Robe Plus Size Costume - Deluxe:
I got this on sale. I am sure glad i didn't pay full price. quality is poor. It does not fit well as it runs on the small size and I ordered a size larger than i normally wear in clothes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

got the costume to go trick or treating with my son i ordered a 2xL but they sent a 1xL because its not the size i asked for its tight on the arms tummy and chest if i hadnt of had a son it would fit perfectly because i can still squeese into it and because halloween is only about a week away i dont want to risk sending it back for the right size and end up not having a costume its good enough for this once ive gotten costumes from them before and they were perfect which is another reason im letting the mess up go but in the future if they send the wrong size or dont get the order right im returning it for a full refund.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
RUNS EXTREMELY SMALL
Over head to put on, fine. Further, no go, by any means. Runs WAYYYYYY SMALL! Your sizing is obviously not U.S.-based. Please add gigantic sizes or use U.S. size descrip-tions for U.S. customers. I notice some other customers complaining of length. I LOVE the length because I am tall. You can't add material but you can HEM things and/or wear heels, so please don't change the lengths. It seems normal to me anyway.
My experience with Spirit
from Portland, Oregon
I ordered the costume and thinking it would fit because it had the same measurements as my other dresses I ordered it. Well it did not fit my chest area. I tried to exchange it at the store and they did not have anything that would fit my chest area. I ended up going to three different stores and nothing. So I was given my money back, but I was not able to get my shipping cost back (which I find it to be wrong, but I guess that is how the company is.)
By not happy
I will not use this as it fits way small. Will have to give it away as My shoulders will never shrink I would say Almost 2 sizes smaller than it states
Luv ur selection, need bigger sizes

About Me Adventurous
I loves the outfit that I ordered for Halloween. My only problem with it was that it didn't fit. I would love to purchase more outfits from you but could you please get the bigger than 2X.
I loved the fit and received many compliments. Only thing was that I had to use clothing tape in order to control the inside edges of the dress that hung outside the dress on the top. I don't know if it was due to my chest size (large).
Not sure who does sizing
from East Tennessee
I wore this as a Halloween costume. After reading all the reviews, I ordered a 2x although I'm a solid size 14 and have been for a while. This size fit from the waist down, but the chest was very tight. I'm not sure which country the sizing is based on, but it surely is not USA sizing. It would also be nice to adjust the height on these costumes since I am short and almost tripped over skirt several times
costume turned out great..fit perfect
from mount vernon ohio
costume fit great,but order a size larger than you take..great comfort and style
I read the reviews and checked the size chart before I ordered this item. When I received it, I noticed the tag in the neckline said 2XL (16-18). The size chart says 1XL is 16-18! Since when is a 2XL a 16-18? Anyway, too tight across the top! Sending it back!
Waay too small

About Me Trendy
I bought the size I was supposed to fit in according to measurements, which is also the size I normally wear, and there was NO WAY it was going to fit...wow! Took it back to the store the day it was delivered. Last time I buy a costume online. It was also much more flowing than I thought, sleeves were extremely long and looked like they may get in the way, as well as skirt, would've had to wear high heels with it.

About Me Conservative
This costume was just what I needed to stay in my comfort zone as a plus sizer. Easy to get on and off, very adjustable as far as the ties and waist. The fabric IS thin, so a few things to consider... shape-forming undergarments if you have any unsightly bulges you want to hide, and a very good bra, as anyone with a large bust will have a challenge reigning them in. And if it's cold wear you live, you' want tights under.It's a great dress, glad I found it!!1
Perfect for that fun Hallowenn party!

Purchased this product for a Halloween party. Many compliments received!However, I am only 5'2", and found it a bit too long. The tailor/seamstress had a very difficult time to hem this costume.
Size runs small
By Cinders Black
from Vancouver, WA
Okay I am going to be honest here. It says the 2x size fits up to 190 pounds. I weigh 187, and am 5'4. My chest is 38 DDD. It fit around the chest but was tight around my stomach and the arms were tight at the top and above the elbows. No way is this a size 2x. The pants I wear to work are a 12 stretch and the shirts I wear are size large. So I returned the 2x and got it in a 3x and it fit much better. I will have to hem it on the bottom though, it is a bit too long for me. The material is light and comfortable and I love the colors.

About Me Adventurous, Classic
I absolutely LOVED this costume, especially the hood and the way it draped. The front panel is hot lookin' too. However, the sizes run very small. I WISH Spirit would make the costumes 1 or 2 sizes bigger. Not everyone is small. Your costumes are GREAT!!!....just please make them in bigger sizes. You'd gain more business, guaranteed! And you'd make thousands of more customers have a happy, happy, happy Halloween, and more, for years to come. -- Thank you!!!!
Perfect Fit if you order one size up
from Wilmington, DE
This is a very comfortable and very stylish costume at a great fit! I'm a dress size 12-14 but went up to the 1x and it fit perfectly. Remember to go one size up and you'll be very happy with this costume!
I am waiting to wear to an event in octo

Nice costume runs small. Had to return

I was so disappointed the costume ran so small. It was made well and would have been fun to wear.

I bought this as a gift for my friend. She wore the costume all day on Halloween.The costume was well made and pretty comfortable. The only problem was that the size ran a bit small. I got her a 2x based on the size chart (she usually takes an XL) and it was snug. So when ordering be careful of the sizing. Otherwise, a good buy for the money.

I purchased this outfit for a Halloween party and was unable to make it. However, I used it the next week to take my son out trick or treating. I enjoyed being one of a few moms that was dressed for Halloween. I got several compliments from the adults. I even got hit on by a guy at the store who thought I looked HOT!!!

I bought this to wear to work for a Halloween party. I am glad I bout it a size too big because it runs small and the upper arms are a little too tight.
Sizing totaly off/Can't return to store!
from Kenmore WA
While I really like the design, IT RUNS EXTREMELY SMALL! According to the package, but not listed online, a 2X = size 16, and a 3X = size 18. I had read the reviews that said it ran small so I ordered a size larger than usual, but this is ridiculous. When I tried to return it to the store (Totem Lake WA), they wouldn't take it back on 10/23. Nothing was said online about such an early return cutoff. Now I am stuck with a costume that doesn't fit with no reoourse. I won't be shopping at Spirit again.

I loved this costume. Just wished it came in one more size larger, but I was able to alter it a little bit and it fits wonderfully now. It's been 10+ years since I dressed up for Halloween. It will be so much fun this year!!
Not Plus Sized
This costume was really cute and would look adorable on a short person. It would make a great princess, vampire or witch costume. Unfortunately it does not fit anyone who is busty and the plus size costume is not sized correctly and won't fit a plus sized 16 or larger. I'm 5'6" and the dress came to my shins, not the pictured floor length. I returned this item.

Was going to use at a party. Doesn't fit. All 3xs I wear are too big this is way way too small. Looks better on a hanger. Have to find a new costume
from Pasadena, CA
I had read that this ran small so I bought the xxxl. Let me just say I'm a regular size 16/18 and the xxl would've fit just fine. However, being 5'3 the xxxl just touches the floor and is the perfect length so this may not be the best costume for tall people. Really comfy and stretchy, the strings in the middle adjust a bit to shrink the waist if, like me, you bought one that's a little too big. Typical cheapy costume material doesn't feel great on your skin, but you get what you pay for and really I think for such a cool looking costume it's a bargain.
