extremely useful review
Cop costumes are something of a favorite of mine. They're usually fun, flirty, dark and flattering. They work as get-ups for parties as well as heating up private bedroom scenarios.

This Bad Cop outfit, meets all that criteria. It's a comfortable, sleek, simple, cute design that (at the time of this writing) is even on sale. It is not, however, one of my favorites. Despite the normally high quality of Leg Avenue products, this one was cheaply constructed and for no clear reason did not look good on me... or any of my friends whom I let try it on.

My first attempt to wear the Bad Cop outfit ended in defeat. I fit into a small/medium on most days but on the first day I tried on this piece, it was evidently a medium/large day. Based on the simplicity and comfort of the dress, I assumed this outfit would have a little more forgiveness of a tummy full from lunch than it did. The dress does, though, get its entire look of coolness from the waist cincher. And that thing will forgive your waistline nothing. Despite a spandex back, it's surprisingly unflexible. And without a little extra room to work with, the shoddily constructed zipper is impossible to close.

So, obviously, on my first shot, I couldn't wear the cincher. As a result, I stood in the dress, tie and hat alone and was underwhelmed. It was cute, in theory, but looked awkward on my body. The accents were adorable, including the "Officer Naughty" emblem on the breast. But the tie just doesn't look very good. It didn't look good on another cop outfit I already owned either. The hat is comically large but pretty adorable.

On another day where I was a little less bloaty, I tried it all again. The cincher fit fine but the zipper broke in three different ways within seconds. And although the cool cincher could be kept on with safety pins, it still wasn't a good look on me.

So I brought it to my best friend who happens to have one of those ridiculously long, lean bodies on which all clothes look immediately better. She remarked at how comfortable the dress was and how cute the waist cincher was and how NOT cute she felt like she looked. It was baffling. We stared incredulously. By all reasonable expectations it should have been adorable, but she didn't look particularly sexy at all.

The accents are enjoyable: the cincher is cute and could work with other outfits (if you can get a zipper that doesn't break immediately), the hat and badges are a nice touch of verisimilitude, and the dress itself feels as comfortable as pajamas. But if I find a friend who sees this outfit and wants to keep it, I won't hesitate a moment before handing it over.
Follow-up commentary
No one will even take this from me for free! I keep trying to hand it off to friends so that it gets some use, especially since I already have a collection of much better cop costumes, but it seems no one really likes how they look in it. Several commented that the corset part is cute on its own, but unfortunately, that is the part that broke right away.

    Seems like this looks like a costume better reserved for Halloween than for the bedroom, hm? Great review.

    Brand inconsistency makes me sad. The cinch seems to have been poorly constructed, but what about the dress, hat, and tie? Were the seams sound? Thanks for the review!

    So was one of the problems that it runs too small? What exactly makes it look so unflattering?

    msblackpetite- it wasn't that it was too small- and i should clarify that the dress itself fit fine. it just looked awkward- and that was the case for both me and my thinner friend. the cincher, which is the highlight of this outfit, was initially tight on me. but i have a pretty big rib cage, so it may not be a universal dilemma. the fact the cincher broke so quickly, though, indicates the quality of the construction.

    What a bad experience I hope you'll find somebody to give it to... or you could give it to a thrift store? Thanks for reviewing
