To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great dress that fit perfectly (was size 12 for a 9 year old with measurements of 14" from shoulder to shoulder, 17" from shoulder to wrist, 24" chest, 23" waist and 42" from shoulder to ankle so according to the size chart we could have gone a size down though I dont know) but I sent it back due to a noticeable snag in the material. This style 588 has thinner fabric than the 566 style that they have in stores but you can't get that online just like you can't get this one in the dance shops. If you want a slightly looser fit then this is for you even though it is thinner. For all intents and purposes, we layer with them anyway so it would have worked wonderfully but since the fabric was torn I did go with the one from the local dance shop which was a little more form fitting but the material is thicker and stronger.
This dance dress is just perfect for young dancers! It's made with sturdy material, is an age-appropriate conservative cut, and has nice movement and flow. Since it's white it definitely requires a base layer like a flesh-tone tank top or leotard.
The skirt bottom is not sewn into a hem, just cut neatly. I think this makes it easy to either re-cut or hem to fit. My niece's school wound up providing costumes, so I returned this one. Though I can't speak on how it does when washed or the longevity of the stitching/fabric; I would recommend this dress based on how it felt and looked during a fitting.
The item came within a couple of days so that was good. The dress itself is well made but I'd suggest that the girls wearing them wear a sports bra underneath cause it's a little see through in the chest area...especially if they're starting to develop breasts. My daughter is 10 and wears a size 14/16 so I purchased the biggest size (XL) and she still had room so I could've gone down a size. Overall, the attire is good for the price so I'd recommend this to others...hope this review was helpful!
I loved the dress and I ordered multiple dresses for our Christmas production. However, several came with a bad run down the back. Very similar to what a pair of panty hose with a run would look like. Very disappointed
