Where do you find these Costume Size Charts? If you refer to the description section of the product you are interested in buying you will find a very informative size chart with measurements that are based off ‘Australian Standard Sizing’ measurements. If you use the size charts correctly by using a tape measure and applying your measurements against the size chart then in most cases you will alleviate any fitting issues. 

Every one of our manufacturers have slightly differing sizes charts. More often than not the differences are only minor but we highly recommended that you always check each individual size chart and again that helps to alleviate fitting issues.

FAQ's

Q. All or some of my measurements fall in different size ranges. Which size should I select?

A. We recommend that you select the size that represents 2 or more of your body measurements. For example, if your chest and waist equal a size large and your hips equal a size XL, than choose a Large.

Q. If my outfit does not fit me upon trying it on, can I exchange for another size?

A. Yes. However you will be required to pay for the cost of the shipping associated with the return of the item, plus the shipping costs for the replacement item. In the case where we have sent you the wrong size then we will cover all the shipping costs associated with the return and the replacement.

Q. I am usually a size 18 but the largest size you have in stock is a size 16. Should i buy the size 16 and hope that it will stretch enough to fit me. 

No. This is definitely not recommended. More often than not this will not work and will end up costing you money in shipping costs and admin fees.
