the outfit runs small. though its a lot of fun, i was self conscious the entire time i was wearing it - i recommend going a size up. as you can see from the photograph, its all very tight, and supposed to be. But not comfortable at all. Get your own belt; the velcro on the one it comes with doesn't hold and i couldn't squat without it ripping open. the pleather/polyeurethene fabric works, because it looks like leather, but it is very poor quality and ripped from basic wear and tear. the circle stud of the belt buckle came off as well. The velcro isn't great. The red is more of a burgundy and the pants are more of capris. The only part i loved was the top and that's because I've always wanted a corset if you're strongly considering, however, I recommend buying. It was fun to wear and my boyfriend loved it (: it's worth the price. i recommend pairing it with vans over boots.
