Looks great in the package...

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this costume. I love the idea of it, would wear the included tie everyday if I could, and it looks so cute on the package. BUT the fit of the shirt leaves something to be desired, the suspenders are not user friendly, and the thing wrinkles so easily that you can't get more than one use out of it without major laundry intervention.

extremely useful review
I'd never had a schoolgirl costume before, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I really liked the pictures of this costume, and figured the quality should be decent based on the price.

This costume consists of a white button down shirt, a black skirt with attached suspenders, and a tie. The stockings pictured on the package are not included.

Fit:
I ordered a 3X/4X. (By way of comparison, I'm a 22/24 at Lane Bryant.) The tie is 34 1/2" long. I'm not sure whether the tie length varies based on the size of costume or not. The shirt is 26" from shoulder seam to the bottom, laid flat, and 24" from side seam to side seam. The skirt is 52 1/2" in diameter and 15 1/2" tall. In terms of how the item fit me, the shirt seemed pretty tight for a 3X/4X- the buttons were gaping unattractively in the chest and I'm a B cup and was not wearing any sort of bra with the shirt. The skirt has a velcro waistband and could be adjusted plus or minus a few inches of the total waist size.

Appearance:
As I said, the shirt gaped unattractively in the chest. The shirt is made of thin, kind of translucent material and your bra (or lack thereof) would be clearly visible through the shirt. The pocket and patch on the shirt are cute, and it is a great idea, but it looks better on a hanger or in the package than on a person.

The tie hit me at a really cute length when tied, just above my navel. I can't say enough about how much I love the tie. The material feels great, it is an awesome length for me, and the pattern is one of my favorite plaids I've seen.

The skirt... First of all, the suspenders attached to the skirt are almost impossible to figure out. They got tangled all around my leg the first time I tried to put the thing on (yes, both suspenders somehow tangled around the same leg). I finally had to get my husband to help and it took us both several tries to get it on right. Since the first time, I've worn this with the suspenders just kind of hanging down since they aren't really obtrusive. Thinking scissors will be my answer to the suspender problem, should I be seriously motivated to wear this costume for any length of time. Also, the skirt has a side closure (that was part of the big mystery about why the suspenders didn't work- I thought it closed at the back initially) that consists solely of a 1" square of velcro at the waist. You couldn't really wear the skirt in public without some safety pins, as the closure isn't terribly secure and any underwear is immediately visible as soon as you take a step.

Durability/issues:
The package says to "hand wash separately," so I did and didn't have any major problems with the outfit surviving the washing process. (I didn't try to wash the tie.) The fabric seems pretty durable, and I doubt the costume falls apart on me anytime soon. HOWEVER, and this is a big issue, the thing became so wrinkled the first time I had it on (standing in the living room, no sexual activity or anything that should cause wrinkles) that it lost a lot of its appeal. The wrinkles didn't come out in the wash, and I'm not the type of person who is going to spend a long time ironing a pleated sex costume skirt (if it can even be ironed- not sure since no care instructions). The shirt and skirt wrinkled equally badly, but the shirt wrinkles are more visible since the shirt is white.
