Let me preface this with saying that I like the costume overall. At least the jacket says "Pink Ladies." It also fit very well, although I had to order it in a size larger than my usual dress size to hide my jiggly bits. I am 5' tall, and more or less proportional. The dress is an open back sleeveless cut, which isn't much like Rizzo's dress from the movie. It's easy to don and remove though. The belt loops seem to ride high up on the torso for me. The lapel is papery and doesn't fold easily. I had to paper clip the lapels down to make a crease which will hopefully hold. The hemline falls at my knee. The front closures are two buttons. The neckline is very low cut, but is somewhat adjustable with some creativity. The jacket has no pockets as seen in the movie. It also has no lining and seems cut short to sit at the waist unlike the style in the movie. The collar seems short and doesn't fold over easily.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
