Plus Size Womens Layered Tulle Petticoat

Do you know what I know I needed as soon as I got my Cheshire Cat costume? A pretty pink petticoat. So I got one. Specifically, I ordered the plus size pink petticoat from Leg Avenue. I read some reviews and they all said this one runs really small. I’m sort of stuck between most companies’ one size and plus size, but I sure am glad I read the reviews before selecting this one.

 

It’s small guys. As in, 13″ flat for a total 25″ waist. That’s a medium according to Leg Avenue’s size chart. I don’t know what’s going on for the sizing. This one is really stretchy. I got it to about 24″ flat, or 48″ waist. This means that it will fit plus sizes, but it’s going to be a tight fit that cuts into the skin. I’d say women who fall into the 2x-4x ranges should look elsewhere, sorry. =/

 

It’s longer than I expected, too. At 16″, if I wear it where I’d wear my jeans, it would pretty much hit my knees. I find myself pulling this up to the narrowest part of my waist, rather than my hips. At this length, it fits perfectly under my costume, with just a few ruffles sticking out. You could potentially roll up the top of this to shorten it, too. The few couple inches are a soft satin that is comfortable and would work for the rolling. Of course, this is a good length for taller folks, as well.

Another surprise? You betcha. This thing is super poofy and it makes my costume fit far differently than it did without. It makes it much more flattering when the skirt flares out. My waist looks tiny. I also feel extremely feminine. The tulle is only in two layers but there’s extra ruffles at the edge that makes it poof, poof poof. It’s not scratchy at all, either. Goliath quickly decided it was worth investigating. In this picture, he’s walking toward the bottom from the waist, and it’s almost as tall as he is!

There’s a few different product images floating around, but this one is the light pink that Costume Discounters — a purveyor of various accessories and costumes — shows. I kind of wanted a hot pink, but this one will work fine.

 

This petticoat is my first undergarment of its kind and I love it!

    I used to be somewhat involved in the EGL community (elegant gothic lolita, it’s a fashion thing.) and everyone used to complain about Leg Avenue petticoats but looking at this one now I don’t see the hate! It looks really cute and fluffy! And so much less expensive than the designer ones people used to recommend I bet.
