Measurement Guide

Cosplayful.com knows that sizing a costume can be a hassle. Therefore, we have had our costume manufacturers provide us with general size guidelines which typically correspond to regular clothing sizes. These sizes are posted in parentheses next to the size selection buttons in each specific item. Please use them to help you make your purchase, but do not rely on the sizes given. We want to make your costume fits you well!

The Men's Sizes refer to Jacket Size.
The Women's Sizes refer to Dress Size.
The Child Sizes refer to child Size, not age.

We realize these sizes may be a little vague, so we've tried to make it easier for you by actually measuring each costume and providing these measurements on our website. These measurements can be found by clicking on the "Size Chart" tab next to the "Product Details" tab on most of our costume product pages. If the Size Chart tab is not available, or any sizes are not appearing on the Size Chart,or you are still having sizing issues please contact our customer service staff at CustomerService@cosplayful.com.

To size your costume properly, we suggest you take items from your own wardrobe that fit well and compare them to the measurements we have provided. Costumes on average tend to run small. Please do not get discouraged if you need a costume size larger then your real clothes. This is normal! If you find that you are in between sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.

Inseam Measure from your crotch to your ankle, or to the place on your leg or foot that you want your pants to rest while you are standing. It helps to wear shoes for this measurement, so you can get an idea of where you want to the pants to fall over your shoes. You can also take a pair of good fitting pants, and measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the pants.
