Spirit was the only company we could find that offered this costume in a size 16 .. we were so happy to find it. BUT, when the costume arrived and my child tried it on, we discovered we were sent a size 12/14. I truly don't believe this costume even comes in the advertised size 16, as Spirit was the ONLY company to offer it. My daughter is a big girl and I would NEVER order a costume in a size 12. I am still waiting for my refund .. we sent the costume back immediately.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
