Shelling out a chunk of change for a Halloween costume that your kids will wear once or twice can be nerve wracking. Sure, your kid may like how it appears online, but what if it looks completely different in real life? Or, worse, they find it so uncomfortable that they refuse to wear it? Those possibilities are enough to drive a parent to eat an entire bag of mini-size Snickers in one sitting.

Well, I have good news for you: we persuaded our kids to try out a wide variety of popular Halloween costumes from shopDisney—and give us their honest, unvarnished opinions.

Kids ranging in age from toddler to teen shared everything they did (and didn’t) like about their favorite Disney costumes, so that you won’t have any unexpected surprises when your child’s costume arrives. But we won’t judge if you still want to eat your own bag of mini Snickers.

Resistance costume

If you’ve been to Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland, you’ve seen this costume on some of the Disney cast members who work there. Well, now your kid can dress up as a member of the Resistance, too. Our intrepid 9-year-old tester, Violet, gave this costume a rave review.

Not only did she profess that it was comfortable enough to wear all day, but she loves that she can stash extra candy in the belt, and she likes how the cloth twirls out when she spins around. Her mom reports that the costume is incredibly well made, but that she did have a bit of trouble getting the hook-and-eye closures on the back to stay closed.

The biggest drawback to the Resistance costume is that you’ll need to buy a shirt and a pair of leggings to wear under it, otherwise your kiddo will end up being a Resistance flasher rather than a Resistance fighter. An affordable pair of Old Navy leggings and a long sleeved shirt can do double duty as costume wear and school wear.

Darth Vader costume with sound and Storm Trooper

You can’t go wrong with a classic Star Wars Darth Vader costume, especially when it has eight different sound effects. Our 13-year-old tester, Deven, was very impressed with the sound effect capability—it says eight Darth Vader phrases—and he also rated this costume as comfortable enough to wear long after trick-or-treating is over.

The Darth Vader costume includes the suit, mask, gloves, belt, and detachable cape, and kids can activate the sound effects by pressing a button on the belt. If your child wants to complete the costume with a lightsaber, you’ll have to purchase that separately.

Staying on theme with the Star Wars family costume, Deven’s 8-year-old little brother, Dhillon, gamely tested out the Storm Trooper costume. Unlike the full body plastic suits that the Storm Troopers sport at Disneyland, the Halloween costume version is made out of segmented vinyl so your kid can actually move. It comes with the helmet, mask, and detachable belt, but if your child wants the accessories, you’ll have to purchase the baton and shield separately.

If you’re wondering just how comfortable this whole Storm Trooper getup is, Dhillon reports that it’s fine for trick-or-treating, but it’s definitely not something you want to wear for long periods of time.

The Mandalorian

If your child is a fan of The Mandalorian, they’re definitely going to want to dress up as the titular character. We had two different kids test out The Mandalorian costume: 7-year-old Henry, and 9-year-old Martin.

Both boys rated this costume as supremely comfortable, and Henry even wore it out to dinner, and then actually slept in it (minus the mask). As far as sizing goes, it definitely runs on the slightly larger size—the legs of Henry’s costume were long and had to be rolled up—but it was easy to get into and out of and it looked great in person.

The main complaint that both of our testers had with the Mandalorian costume is that the mask is way too big—it easily fits a large adult head—so it kept slipping down and wasn’t easy to see out of.

Ironman

It wouldn’t be Halloween without at least one superhero costume, and thankfully, 9-year-old twin, Elliott, wanted to take Ironman for a test drive. The costume is a perfect dupe for what’s shown online, and it was easy to put on and take off without much adult assistance.

Elliott rated the Ironman costume “comfortable for a full night of revelry” and he loved the sound effects from the motion-activated arm piece—aka a repulsion cannon. Both Elliott and his mom agreed that the sounds from the arm piece gave the costume added value and made it even more fun.

Audrey from Descendants 3

The Descendants TV movie franchise is quite the phenomenon amongst the grade school set, so it wouldn’t be Halloween without at least one character cruising the trick-or-treat trail. Our 6-year-old tester, Josephine, opted for Audrey, aka Princess Audrey Rose, the daughter of Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.

The costume is well made and looks just like the photo on the website which, in turn, looks exactly like the costume that Audrey wears in Descendents 3. Josephine loved the cape and said the costume was super comfortable, but she did have major complaints about the pink wig—which has to be purchased separately.

The wig is luxuriously curled and the colors are incredible, but it’s very difficult to keep on a kid’s head and tangles incredibly easily. It’s itchy to wear and Josephine didn’t want to keep it on long, and her mom says, “I think if I had to do it again, I’d just spray her hair with color.”

Mal from Descendants 3

Another entry from the Descendants 3 universe, the Mal costume includes a sleeveless faux leather jacket, a top, leggings, and fingerless gloves. Our 8-year-old tester, Reese, liked the way the costume fit, but she pointed out that it makes noise when your arms rub against your body, and it made her hot.

She also didn’t like how tight the elastic bands on the gloves were, but her overall review is pretty much a rave: “I really love it and don’t want to ever take it off!”

Spider-Man: No Way Home reversible costume

Recreate the fun of the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home with this cool reversible costume. Our 3-year-old tester, Arlo, loved everything about this costume except the face mask—he wasn’t a fan of how it gets pulled on over the head.

The outfit itself is soft and cozy and reminiscent of a pillow, and the mask is both see-through and breathable, if your kid will agree to wear it. Plus, the fact that it’s reversible means, as Arlo’s mom points out, “It’s like two costumes for the price of one. Huzzah!”

Peter Pan and Tinker Bell

Why not opt for an old school classic Disney duo (like I forced my kids to do) and go with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell? My 8-year-old, Noah, wasn’t all that excited about dressing up as the OG Lost Boy until I agreed to order him Peter’s dagger to complete his costume, but once it arrived his interest was piqued.

The costume itself looks exactly like it does online, and Noah found the soft pants so comfortable that he ended up wearing them for most of the night. The biggest issues we had with the Peter Pan costume are that the “boots”—really shoe covers the fit over a child’s kicks and secure with a piece of elastic—don’t stay up at all.

The minute Noah started walking, the boots fell down and ended up bunched around his ankles, leading him to declare, “whoever designed these is not a good fashion designer.”

The Tinker Bell costume is absolutely adorable and it looks incredible in real life. It’s a great option for a kid who wants to dress up in a sparkly, fluffy costume, but doesn’t have any interest in going as a princess.

My 7-year-old daughter, Rose, loved how pretty this looked when she took it out of the box. It’s really does look perfect for a fairy, with its chiffon skirt and glittery bodice.

She did have an issue with it being uncomfortable, however—she said that the waistline seam was really itchy—so we ended up having to put a cotton tank top underneath it in order to get Rose to wear it.

It’s worth noting that to get the complete look as shown online you have to purchase quite a few accessories. The light-up wings (which are awesome) are an additional $18, and the coordinating sparkly shoes add another $16 to your tab.

If your kid wants Tinker Bell’s light-up wand, too—which we skipped—that’s an additional $10, putting your total cost for this costume at around $75. If you think your kid will wear it for dress-up once Halloween is over, I think it’s a good investment, but for a one time wear it’s a big outlay of cash.

  • Get the Peter Pan costume for $44.99
  • Get the Peter Pan Dagger costume accessory for $10.49
  • Get the Tinker Bell costume for $31.49
  • Get the Tinker Bell Light-up Wings for $17.49
  • Get the Tinker Bell Shoes for $16.09
  • Get the Tinker Bell Light-up Wand for $10.49

That being said, the light-up feature on the wings is great for keeping an eye on your trick-or-treater in the dark, and the whole costume together really looks great. Rose’s favorite part were the sparkly slippers that “give you blisters, but I like that there are bells in the shoes.”

Allbirds Launches Pink Running Shoes

Allbirds Pink Running Shoes

We’ve all heard the canonical phrase, “on Wednesdays, we wear pink” from the 2004 cult classic Mean Girls, but the phrase has been reincarnated in today’s launch of the Allbirds x Lindsay Lohan collab which declares, “on Wednesdays, we launch pink.” The pink to which the beloved brand is referring is a limited edition Lux pink color of the Allbirds Tree Flyer running shoe, available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The shoe also comes in six other color options and has gained attention for being both sustainable and a comfortable and reliable training shoe.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

The shoe was most recently included in Runner’s World’s “What We’re Testing” roundup for May. Runner-in-Chief Jeff Dengate found the shoe to be lighter and bouncier than Allbirds’ original running shoe, the Tree Dasher. “It’s a little lighter than the Dasher, the upper feels a bit more refined for running fast, and the innovative midsole is soft but can handle my daily runs,” stated Dengate. “It’s still a little heavier than comparable shoes—and there are a lot of great daily trainers you can find for $160—but it shows promise that Allbirds is committed to making a great running shoe without using petroleum-based products.”

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

While sustainability has become a top priority for countless consumers, many companies have fallen short of the mark with their supposedly eco-friendly offerings, which have either become subject to greenwashing or are simply sub-par products. But Allbirds is actually doing the work, creating a quality product that’s also actually eco-friendly. This shoe in particular is carbon-neutral and contains materials like castor beans, eucalyptus fiber, merino wool, and recycled water bottles. The brand has also pledged to continue lowering its carbon footprint as it expands its product offerings.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

Besides her fame—and ties to their slogan—Lindsay Lohan may seem like a bit of an odd choice for a running shoe collaboration, but Allbirds says that was intentional. They state on their website, “with Lindsay’s help, we’re reminding the world that anyone and everyone can lace up and move their body.”

Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Review: Girl with Curves for Lane Bryant Collection
Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Here’s why it’s a big deal:

I was 4 for 4: Do you know how rare it is that I keep every single item in an order?! Usually fit or fabric is off in some way or another, or I just don’t like garments on me. Keeping 100% of the things I buy doesn’t happen often.
Styles look great on so many body types.

Unexpected wins: Between color and *pants* this collection filled some major style gaps in my closet. I have an incredibly hard time with tops and pants (which is why 80% of what I own is dresses), and was able to find 2 tops AND 1 pair of pants that I loved.

Overviews of Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant

It sold out incredibly fast (some pieces, within hours) BUT Lane Bryant is now offering store shipping, so you can now order nearly all the items online again.

You can buy in store: So few plus collections can be purchased in nearly every city, and Lane Bryant is one of the few companies that has a wide retail presence. Go to the store and try these beauties on.

No fancy photos, just me and my iPhone, self-timer, and tripod. If you want to see these styles in-motion, I’ll put a video at the end here. Sorry it’s formatted oddly – I made it for IGTV.

Girl With Curves High-Waist Skinny Pant

Lane Bryant

It’s rare that you see me in pants and a shirt here, unless it’s a workout outfit! That’s because pants and shirts are difficult to find that fit my proportions. These pants tick all the boxes for me: they are high waisted (see video below for my tummy view), and stretchy, but look like trousers. They are sleek and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

My problem with tops is that I’m 5’10 and long torsoed. So many shirts look like crop tops on me. It’s perpetual flesh belt city with me and tops. This one? PERFECT. Extremely long, but not sloppy in the least. Very comfortable. And the color? I’ve NEVER worn this color lilac before, and it’s beautiful.

Girl With Curves Belted Wrap-Hem Sweater

Lane Bryant

This sweater would be perfect with the high waisted pants from above, but here I’m wearing it with the jeans I happened to have on when they arrived. It is very long, and my favorite color of the moment – a rich marigold. The knit is comfortable, and very soft. The sleeves are a fun surprise.

Girl with Curves Pleated Trench Dress

This item was the fastest selling one in the collection, and it’s easy to understand why (though, not so great in this photo! See the video below) It’s navy, and can be worn as a dress or as a trench coat. It’s a beautifully made layering piece, or dress on its own. This will be a piece you can wear for years.

When a follower and friend reached out to me on Instagram and told me I should try shopping Nasty Gal’s plus size clothing, I was surprised to learn that the brand carried clothing for plus size women. And I’m not sure how I didn’t know…given that I absolutely worship Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal.

Does Nasty Gal have plus sizes?

Lane Bryant

I went straight to the Nasty Gal plus size clothing section hoping that I would stumble upon a gold mine of cute plus size clothing. Upon my first couple of scrolls, I was intrigued. I instantly saw pieces that I loved including this From New Button plus size skirt and this Never Stop Wandering plus size graphic tee, which is sadly out of stock! At first glance, I really loved the laid-back, but the chic vibe of the collection. However, I felt like there weren’t many options.

The plus size section only had 150 pieces, whereas the straight-size section had more than 500 garments. Aside from the slim pickings, I will say that the price point was perfect for me and my budget. I ended up getting this whole outfit for less than $30—with shipping included—during a sale. I was a little nervous to order this skirt because I noticed it was a non-stretch fabric.

What is Nasty Gal sizing like?

Lane Bryant

My usual rule when shopping online is to size up if it’s not stretchy or stay away from it at all costs. However, I decided to take a chance on the skirt and order my usual size. Besides, you all know I cannot resist a plus size mini skirt. When I got the clothes in the mail, I instantly tried on the skirt to see if it would fit. To my surprise, it was actually a little loose in the waist. The material was much thinner than I thought it would be, which I think helped the fit be so spot on. The T-shirt fits perfectly, as expected.

All in all, I am very happy with this look. I think the skirt is super cute and it could be paired with almost any kind of top. The T-shirt is my favorite, and I can’t wait to wear it with jeans and everything in between. I really hope that Nasty Gal continues to add to its plus size selection because I feel like the brand has a unique style and perspective to offer the plus size community that it hasn’t already seen!

If there is a brand that you would like for me to test out, feel free to reach out to me via email or on Instagram! I am always open to suggestions.

SIZING INFO:

I look to LB for quality tanks and tees that last, as well as the occasional blouse, dress, and sweater. So many plus size brands are ultra trendy, and Lane Bryant remains one of the few places you can shop for basics and staples.

Lane Bryant’s Cacique line of undergarments is a mainstay amongst plus size shoppers. They’ve largely been unchallenged as a primary source of bras in particular because they are the most well known and universally available. My first fully fledged bra came from Lane Bryant many many years ago and I remained a loyal customer through significant changes in band and cup size. Now, at a 44/46 DD, I continue to shop there, and I’m not entirely sure why.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Over the years, despite the fact that Lane Bryant could be considered an institution in the realm of plus size bra shopping, I’ve become extremely disillusioned with the Cacique brand. It took some time on my part, but I’ve nailed down the things that present the most problems for me.

The styles have largely remained the same. Cacique hasn’t followed many of the trends and the vast majority of bras remain the same from season to season with minor changes in color or print. The exception to this rule seems to be the brand’s undying devotion to all things cage bra and strappy detail, which isn’t entirely unappealing, but it would be nice to see more diversity in the brand’s offerings. I rarely see any innovation in construction or styles outside of back smoothing or cooling technology.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Lane Bryant has the potential to offer plus size customers, especially those in higher band sizes that are frequently ignored even by full bust lines, stylish designs in new shapes that reflect the shifting nature of the lingerie industry. But rather than make advancements on the actual style or primary function of a bra, the brand has instead decided to mostly focus on making plus sized bra shoppers minimize their back fat.

Lane Bryant Reviews

For example, Cacique could easily introduce a bralette, a style that is becoming increasingly available in plus sizes. Cacique could seize the opportunity to introduce trends that are almost impossible to find in plus, like sportier styles. The failure to innovate results in a lack of new and exciting options every season.

Frequent lack of availability in larger band sizes. My primary reason for sticking with Cacique for as long as I have is a simple one. A 46 band isn’t the most widely available, even among lines that are considered plus-sized bra lines. I admit, part of Cacique’s appeal is the relative breadth of selection, especially when compared to other retailers.

For example, filtering the results at Macy’s to show bras only in a 46 band size takes me from almost 900 bras to 20. The same filter at Nordstrom takes me from 915 options to 7. Amazon’s vast selection of over 2,000 bras goes to 118. A 46DD filter at Kohl’s takes me from 927 to 106 options and the same filter at target takes me from just over 1,000 options to 21. Even Torrid’s selection is cut nearly in half once the 46DD filter is applied.
