About Me Adventurous, Enjoys Costume Parties
Comments about Spirit High Seas Pirate Adult Women's Plus Size Costume:
I love this costume. I usually wear a 1X so I ordered larger (2X) as costumes usually run small. I used the size chart and selected the larger range. I sew, so I could always take it in!The burgundy satin skirt took a LOT of ironing (as did the bandana), but it looks great! The wrinkles in the blouse are another story--they are a bit less prominant, but I guess pirates don't have ironing boards on ship! The plastic vest is cute AND looks good. Not like the laced corsets?(bustier?) Those I've never found to fit. Had to steam the vest to get most of wrinkles out. The knit back of the vest is still wrinkled--couldn't get that out. The only improvement I would suggest to the company is to use a better quality knit for the blouse, sleeves and back of vest so wrinkles could be removed. Then I'd have given it 5 STARS!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After I wore it once the one of the brass things to protect the holes on the vest fell off
True to size

Bought this to wear to the Renn faire. It's comfortable, normal quality for a halloween costume, however I am very disappointed with the quality of the skull pin on the skirt. Looks nothing like the picture and looks a bit trashy. The skull isn't even fully designed, it's just barely visible on the piece of plastic.

This is a good costume. I'm a 16 W and it just fits. I don't know why costumes run so small. The dress part is loose, but the vest is very fitted. The sleeves are a little awkward, but overall, its great.

This is a good plus size costume. It's a little big but better than being too small. I will have to alter it a smidge for it to fit right. It is very comfortable and a good length if you don't want to show all your business. I will be very comfy on Halloween!

The size chart was dead on & it fits great. the vest is a little awkward, but nothing a few stitches couldn't fix. Will be wearing this time & again
Love this costume, however, missing the pin when shipped... Customer service is willing to work with you though, ultimately a good purchase and good customer service.
