I was really impressed with the quality of the costume. Instead of a thin, flimsy material like other costumes I have checked out in the past this one is made out of a strong cotton like regular clothing. The tag labels it as 98.5% cotton and 1.5% spandex, to me it feels like canvas or a light denim and has very little stretch. It has a zipper on one side that runs from 4″ from the bottom of the dress all the way up to the top. It has pretty good breast coverage, but not a lot of support. I have B-Cups and am going to have to say the Large will fit better on someone with C’s, which seems to be pretty typical in “size large” items.
The collar is fastened on with Velcro, which at first led me to believe that it could be worn without using it, but with the collar removed you are left with two soft Velcro pieces that won’t stick together. Without the collar the straps are also not long enough to function as a strap. You could probably modify the costume with a bit of fabric and Velcro quite easily though, if you wanted to wear
it without the collar. This is what I plan to do personally, as the collar looks a little silly to me and seemed to want to fall down and lay flat on my back rather than stand up like in the photo. It has plastic ribbing inside that helps keep it’s shape.
