“ Brand: Leg Avenue / Type: 3pc pleather nurse costume „
I like to dress it up on a night out, and my friends seemed to go through a phase of having fancy dress birthday parties. These are kind of a pain as you have to get a specific outfit to fit in with the theme. I fell in love with the Leg Avenue brand as they have a huge selection of costumes and many different designs to choose from so you can get something that suits your style and tastes. One of my best fancy dress purchases was the Pleather Nurse costume from Leg Avenue's Fire & Rescue range.
The Pleather Nurse costume can be directly bought from Leg Avenue online at www.legavenue.co.uk. The RRP is £56.11 on the website, which is very expensive for this sort of product. It is currently reduced to £28.04 which is more reasonable, and I would strongly advise looking for the costume on eBay as you can often find them considerably cheaper. I paid around £15.00 for mine and that was brand new in the packaging. The sizes available range from Extra-Small all the way up to Extra-Large, although the cuts are on the small size. It important to check the sizing chart as the outfits don't correspond to normal labelling. For example, I'm a size 10 and that's classed as a medium! XS = 6, S = 8, M = 10, L = 12, XL = 14.
Product description: "3 piece Pleather Nurse costume, includes hat, button front dress, and stethoscope."
The outfit comes in three pieces and this gives a nice finished look as everything matches. The main part of the costume is the dress, which is made of a tight fitting PVC fabric. The dress is cut well so that it fits nicely at the front, although I think it could have done with some darts being added at the back as it did bunch up a little around the back of my waist. It has a nice shape to it with short cap sleeves that balance out the amount of skin exposed. The front of the dress is secured by poppers so you can leave a few open to create a plunging neckline if you dare! The skirt section is very short so you need to be quite confident to wear it! I'm 5' 10" and there is no way I could wear this out without teaming it with some leggings or trousers underneath. In the comfort of your own home of course it doesn't matter how short the dress is, but there was no way I wanted to go out with my butt cheeks hanging out!! Petite ladies could probably get away with this a bit better than I could!
The accessories are fairly basic but they do make it look like a full costume and give a good overall effect. The outfit is available in two colour options - black with red detail or white with red detail. I went for the classic white with red which I think stands out and fits in with the classic fantasy nurse look. The dress comes with a nurse's hat, which is made of matching material and just kind of sits on top of your head. This looked really ridiculous on me, and I couldn't bear to wear it so I think I probably threw it away at some point. If you have the sort of face structure that suits wearing unusual head gear then go for it, as this adds a nice touch to the dress. You also get a stethoscope which is made of plastic and is very cheap and tacky looking. All in all I wasn't too bothered by this, it's not like I'm a real nurse and need to use the thing! It adds a bit of fun and it also seems to get people talking as lots of my friends wanted to play with it!
The dress is very comfortable to wear and was easy to move around in, although if it weren't for the safety net of wearing leggings underneath I would have been constantly paranoid about the dress riding up and having a potential flashing situation. The PVC fabric feels great and is very sensual, but it has the horrible down side of making you sweat. Not to worry though, as the dress can be wiped clean and I didn't notice any bad smells lingering on the material. I have worn this dress many times and although it hasn't stained it did end up with a few scuff marks which have damaged the PVC, and really stands out against the white colour of the fabric. As well as wearing this for several nights out and fancy dress parties, it has also been worn to a gig and has spent a bit of time in the bedroom! Sadly my dress has reached the end of its lifespan, but it has served me well and I would definitely consider buying another one. There is nothing technically wrong with the dress, and the structure has held up well, but the worn marks on the fabric really spoil the look and it looks past its best.
You could dress up this costume by adding different accessories. The naughty nurse look is incredibly popular and there is a massive load of accessories available to help you play dress up. Leg Avenue have 8 extra nurse accessories available to choose from. I also have a nurse's bag, nurse stockings and nurse boots that go with this dress. This Pleather Nurse set is a very sexy and provocative outfit. I would definitely recommend it as it looks great, is comfortable and gets full marks on the turning heads impact scale! Wear and enjoy!
