I bought this costume for Halloween as I'm going as the Queen of Heats, but the outfit does have a certain 'German Beer Maid' feel to it haha.
In regards to sizing, I wear a 6 - 8 and I found it a bit baggy in places, but I have sorted that by shortening the red halterneck strap that goes around the neck to hold it up and that seems to have done the job. The material around the back is very slightly loose, but due to the way the dress falls, you cant notice. If you want to pull it in more, the ribbon at the front is adjustable. Be warned the black ribbon isn't attached to the dress when it arrives so make sure you done throw it away when you open the packaging!
The accessories are pretty much useless; the hat is ridiculous and the stockings are very tight, more like long socks, and make the outfit look cheap. I bought some separate stockings from Amazon with hearts and spades, they look a lot better. I have also purchased an extra tutu after reading the reviews, which does poof up the skirt, both hiding the slightly looser material at the back and makes the outfit look more like a costume.
The feel of the dress is very nice and soft, doesn't feel cheap at all and is very stretchy. I didn't find the tutu itchy either, unlike a lot of the reviews. The red is slightly more vibrant than in the image where it looks like a deep red. Delivery was very fast, it arrived within a few days. Overall, I'm a happy customer. Happy Halloween!
