I finally got my first free item to review for my blog, huzzah! After more than two years of blogging, it’s about time. Trying to get free stuff isn’t my main focus–and I’m plenty skeptical of the commercialization of fatshion blogging–but it’s still nice to be offered something to review once in a while.
Plus Size Lingerie Boutique offered me a free item, and I decided to go with this goth-tastic vampire costume. You can find all of their vampire costumes here.
I ordered the largest size, 3x, hoping it would fit even though my measurements were slightly bigger than the size chart. Unfortunately, it turned out to be way, way too small–I could barely squeeze into it. I’d recommend this costume for someone who usually wears at most a 16/18.
I’m disappointed that the costume runs so small–if only the “3x” actually fit true to size, it would be perfect. The material is soft and comfortable, and I love the style. It would be great for a Halloween party, or for just randomly walking around town in full goth-queen regalia (which is totally a thing I would do).
It seems that their lingerie runs larger than their costumes–I’ve seen Leah wearing it, and she usually wears a size or two larger than I do. So I would cautiously recommend the site for people who wear a size 20+, and definitely recommend it for smaller fats and in-betweenies.
