Got Tons of Compliments & Felt Very Sexy
About Me Adventurous, Bold, Creative, Unique
I am completely happy with my purchase. I was the "belle of the ball" and got positive attention and compliments all night long. If you order this, I recommend getting thigh high boots and a petticoat. The petticoat is a must. I chose red to contrast with black fishnets and black patent leather thigh high boots. It looked gorgeous. I am 18/20 and ordered a size up. Not sure I needed to, and maybe fit would have been sexier if I ordered size down. My only complaints are that I had to hem the sleeves and the skirt to show petticoat. In a pinch, you can cut the sleeves and skirt and it will still look nice. Also, I would have preferred a tighter bodice that revealed cleavage. These are just me being picky bc the dress is expensive and I want perfection. ;) I would definitely buy again and was very, very pleased with the quality of the velvet coat and embellishments. The dress could be a nicer fabric, but it's all right bc no one really sees it in detail under the lace.

Planning to have a pirate theme for my foyer and will be passing out candies in this great costume. I'm 5' 10" and normally a size 16W, had to order the 2x/3x but that's what fit closest to my measurements. Length was perfect for me, would definitely recommend. Happy Halloween!!
Nice outfit, makes your breasts look big

Best to order a larger size. Must have the hat to complete. Very cute,lots of fun to wear,I felt in charge because I was the captain of the party, an looked it. If you have large breast you will even look larger. But thats okay, you will be notice and the guys love it.( Not exaggerating.)
Size is WAY off

This was a beautiful costume but does not fit true to size. I ordered the 3x/4x and it was WAY too small . I had my mom try it on (she is a14/16) and she said it fit her like a size 18 would. I returned it right away.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I LOVE this costume!!! I was the bell of the Halloween ball, and all eyes were on me! This is a high quality costume, and I had mine altered (it was slightly tight when it first arrived), but it turned out great! I looked and felt beautiful, and I can't wait to wear it again.

This costume was a hit at my halloween party. I am 5'2 size 20. It was a tad long on me so I trimmed it up. I could have possibly went with a size smaller but decided to stick with the 3x/4x. I topped it off with the Swashbuckler hat that made the look! This costume is well made and looks amazing. I would highly recommend this costume to others.

About Me Adventurous
Was kinda bumbed because my first choice was sold out. After ordering it I read the reviews and they talked a lot about it running small. I had already figured that I would have to wear a sucker-inner since I am actually bigger than the measurements so I was a little nervous. It was an amazing fit without any additional garments. The only thing was, and this is with most costume companies, the arms were a little tight. I wish costume manufacturer's would get that if you need a 3X most likely you have 3X arms as well...

Very classy costume, well made! I would like it better if the frilly skirt went all the way around the back! You would think they would just put a little bit around the edges...all the skirts we wear now go all the way around our bodies, they don't just cover the front.
About Me Comfort-Oriented
Love this costume! It will be warm for parties and isnt made like normal cheap costumes, its very well made. It is longer than I thought, which isn't a big deal. Definitely will have to have the hubs help me zip it up. I ordered the red petticoat, I highly recommend getting it. I didn't have a problem with the top like others did. The red tie at the top is adjustable, maybe others didn't know? Love this and can't wait to wear this out!
By Miss Captain Hook

Super cute costume. My daughter is tinkerbell so I thought I'd be miss capt hook. I'm tall (5'11") so I recommend the red petticoat to give an extra couple inches of coverage and red because it makes all the red details pop. I also recommend the matching hat. Sizing runs a little small. I'm a dress size 14 and have room to give, 14-16/18 (small 18) you'll be good with the 1/2. If your large 18-20 id recommend the 3/4. The material has minimal stretch so don't bank on that. The sash does open up so you can have more room there. Also the sleeves may be tight if you have thick arms. Planning on fishnets with boots or Mary Janes haven't decided. Jazz it up with fun jewelry. Price shop ladies. Happy Halloween!
Just buy it!

Some many complements. Looks really expensive. This costume is so fun I already bought my second one. Cleaners killed my first one. I am a true size 18 and had to buy the 3/4. I'm also 5'11" and costume is a perfect lengh. I bought the black petty and hat. They are a must have. You won't be sorry buying this costume, in fact you will be the hit of the party, I was!

FIT OF COSTUME

FIT IN UPPER BODY AREA THROUGH BUST CHEST AREA

Sizes run way too small!
Its a costume, I don't expect it to be that well made, but good grief! The size runs way too small!!!!! Need to go 1-2 sizes up on this one. Great idea, but needs to be true to size. Thank God you accept returns online and in the stores. The little holes you pull the red ribbon through pops very easily. Its a fun costume. I wish it fit better. I may have alterations done to it. Who knows.

I wore this with black pants and knee-high black boots with a flip down cuff. It was a little longer than I expected, but very comfortable. I could have worn it with a petticoat and leggings, maybe next time. I plan to keep it and rewear again in a couple of years. Jacket zips up the back. Sleeves could be shorter, would get in the way at a buffet-type party.

Beautiful, well made, nice fabric
By Pirate Traci
from Seattle, WA
About Me Adventurous, Bargain Shopper, Trendy
It is a very cool costume, well made and the fabric is not chintzy. I ordered the 3/4 Plus size rather than the 1/2 (I normally wear a size 22, bra 44D). Good thing, because this costume is very snug, especially in the chest and mid-section. Luckily the velvet fabric is a little stretchy and the red ribbon can be adjusted or removed. It does not include the red skirt so be sure to buy that separately. Also it looks great with the matching Leg Avenue Swashbuckler hat. Ahoy!

Love this costume
from Olympia, WA
Very happy with this costume! I orginally ordered the Gretchen and had to send it back because it was too big. I like this one better because there's more coverage in the upper arm area. I also bought the black plus size petticoat and it really compeltes the costume nicely. The only problem is that the petticoat is shorter than the costume, but I think I'm going to cut it a little bit so it looks better and doesn't hang over the edge of the petticoat like a lamp shade. I ordered the 3/4x size and I typically wear a 1x (18-20). I could have returned it and got the 1/2x and it would probably fit a little better, but I'm running out of time. I will make it work because I really love the costume. I'm planning to wear it with black fishnet stockings, boots, a sword, and a hat. Sooooo cute! My hubby loves it too :)
