Default Princess Dress for Older Child

Hello everyone -
We are 3 weeks away from our trip (so exciting!!). We have the BBB scheduled for our daughter who is 10 and very, very tall for her age. We have been searching for a dress to bring with us on the trip because we have found standard kids costume dresses (like at the disney website) don't fit her. Has anyone had experience with this and have suggestions where I can find something that is not going to cost us $100+? She tends to be a size 16-18.

Thanks!

Great costumes, last much longer than others we tried & comfortable for kids to wear all day. They have some in adult sizes now so there be something that will work.

A fun BBB experience is to get two Cindy dresses, one before and one after. We did that & DD loved it. Here’s the blog post:

We had a similar issue with my daughter around that age. Check on Etsy if the other suggested links dont work out

I always check buycostumes.com or Amazon this time of year for things like that. My DD doesn't fit into the traditional costume as well either, so when we did the total BBB package for her, we did had the "gown" that we brought from home, but then we allowed her to pick out a little faux fur shaw w/matching gloves at BBB.
