I read a handful of reviews to find out if the costume ran TTS, big or small. Based on the reviews and the sizing chart, it seemed to me that this costume ran very large. I measured my daughter around the chest, her height and weighed her to make sure we ordered the right size. She is 44 inches tall so I knew the costume would be long, but that is fixable. She is 5 1/2 and wears a 6x or 7/8. Her chest measured 24 inches. According to the Sizing Chart, the XS had a chest size of 25 inches and fit up to 55 lbs. My daughter is exactly 55 lbs . Since the costume "ran big" I opted for the XS thinking that it would be perfect.
Wrong. It's like I didn't even get the costume pictured. It was very long, no doubt about that. I didn't bother to even measure how long it was. I measured the chest which measured 10 inches across so 20 inches around and the costume has no stretch in the chest or stomach. The chest is 4 inches smaller than the Sizing Chart lists. I couldn't even squeeze her into this costume.
I'm sending it back and I had to beat the crowds last min and dig through picked over costumes to find something she liked.
Based on the size chart and the fact that everyone says it runs big, I would not risk purchasing this. It either came from a different manufacturer, or was completely misrepresented or the sizing chart was wrong. My daughter was crushed.
I have to say that we were very lucky. I ordered the x-small for my four year old (who takes a size four in clothing) and it fit perfectly. Based on the abundance of reviews that state that this costume runs big, I can only guess that we were simply lucky. I've ordered a second one for when this one gets destroyed and will update this review accordingly.
I must also say that the quality of this costume is higher than the Disney costumes. Not to say that this is "high quality", but the Disney licensed costumes are horrible and twice the price.
Take a chance, you may get lucky like we did.

** We received the second costume and oddly enough, even though I ordered the exact same size, the costume was much larger. It wasn't too big to wear, but it was a noticeable difference.
** The "sequins" are actually shiny stickers.... and I am finding them all over my house.
** The one costume started to come apart at the seams after about a week of dress up play. The other (larger) costume had its first wear on Halloween and ended up in the trash that very same night. It was trashed just from trick or treating at five houses.
** If I could do it all over again, I would have ordered the mermaid dress/costume from Little Adventures first and saved myself all this hassle and expense. Their dresses can be machine washed which is an absolute necessity. Their costumes aren't as sparkly as others, but this mom sees that as a real plus!
Bottom Line: I'm in agreement with the other not so positive reviews now. Skip this one. Get the one made by Little Adventures instead.
BTW it comes with a little headband with shell shapes on it. The shells slide around on the plastic headband, so I glued them in place. She wanted them off to the side, and they really are cute like that!!
