Just in time for Halloween, a costume review! This is the Cheap Thrills Little Red Riding Hood costume from SheVibe. This cute little costume is red stretchy polyester with a white panel in the front and red ribbons crisscrossing it to emulate a corset type look. The skirt also has a lacy ruffle that is meant to look like a petticoat. The hooded cape is also included but any other accessories pictured are sold separate.
The Cheap Thrills Little Red Riding Hood is available in three different sizes: small-medium, large-x-tra large, and one size queen. I got the one size queen, which is supposed to fit U.S. dress sizes 20-24. My first thoughts on opening the box the costume came in was that there didn’t look like there was a lot of fabric in there and that I loved the vibrant red of the costume. The costume doesn’t have any zips or buttons to worry about, everything just pulls on. I’m a fan of that, especially when sizing is broad because battling a zipper on clothes that aren’t specifically tailored for a size can be a nightmare.
With the ease of pulling both the top and bottom on, this is a quick costume to get on. Unfortunately, I was not wrong about the amount of fabric. Everything fit but my DDD boobs completely filled the top. It basically looked like a fancy sports bra with wider straps. If I wear the skirt where I normally would, there is about 6 to 8 inches of bare skin between the skirt and the top. If I pull the skirt up to the base of the top like shown in the pictures, the bottom of the skirt ends up falling at about the top of my mons…which is fine if you want to be a veeeery naughty Little Red Riding Hood. Personally, I would have preferred a few more inches in length on the top. Women who don’t have breasts as large as mine will have a more successful fit with this costume.
My favorite part of the costume? The cape, of course! I kind of want to put it on and go grocery shopping, do lawn work, or just go to work. It’s just fun. And don’t think I can’t use it with another outfit for Halloween or for a sexy costume for the bed room. This is definitely a cute set, but the sizing just didn’t work for me. So keep in mind, if you have larger breasts, you may want to order up a size.
Thanks to SheVibe for providing this product free for an honest review!
