In my house, we're silly. With 3 kids, it's important to always have a sense of humor. Otherwise, it would be far too easy to get stressed out over the little things! One thing we love to do is dress up in costumes and have mini-parties. Whether it be for the big game where our team, the Chicago Bears, will inevitably lose, or an 80's themed dance-off, costumes are a great way to liven the occasion and get our kids laughing at us. They probably think Mommy and Daddy are crazy, but that's okay!
I also have a selection of costumes for more....adult use. The kids never see those ones. Hey, after years of marriage and juggling work, maintaining the home, and taking care of 2 toddlers and a preteen, sometimes you need a jump-start in the romance department. Sexy costumes are a great way to escape the ordinary and pretend you're someone else for one steamy evening. My husband particularly likes my schoolgirl costumes, my referee costume, my saloon girl costume, and my French maid costume. Okay, I guess he likes them all. After all, men are very visual creatures. Switching things up once in awhile is a lot of fun and can definitely get his pulse racing!
Since we have so many costumes, parents and kids alike, we wanted to save the most money possible. How did we accomplish this? By joining a costume club! Our favorite is Wholesale Costume Club. What are the benefits of shopping there? For one, their selection is amazing. You can find costumes to fit every mood and occasion, and they have options for the entire family, including your furry friends! They offer wholesale prices, sometimes below cost deals, and can save you hundreds of dollars on your costume needs.
How does it work? It's actually very simple. There is a one time fee of $5.00 to become a member. This is charged when you make your first purchase. The membership is good for an entire year, and is not automatically re-billed. That's right! No automatic billing, ever! If you choose to become a member, you get exclusive, member only prices on all of their costumes and accessories. These discounts are HUGE! You will never receive merchandise you didn't order, either. No surprise shipments, no spam, just major discounts on their already rock-bottom prices.
You may also choose to purchase costumes at low prices without becoming a member. There is no pressure, and the deals are still amazing. No matter which option you choose, you will be spending far less than you'd expect to pay at conventional costume retailers. I would definitely recommend membership, though, since it's only $5.00 and pays for itself the first time you order.
Here are a couple of my favorite costumes from Wholesale Costume Club:
The awesome folks at Wholesale Costume Club sent me this adorable, retro-inspired Sexy Cheeky Brit Adult British Flag Costume for my review. This costume is so much fun, and is made by Leg Avenue, one of the top makers of sexy costumes. It comes with a cute, pull-on dress, a pair of panties featuring the British flag on the bum, and a cute red headband to complete the look.
This costume is very durable and well made. It's not at all like the flimsy costumes you'd find at big box retailers around Halloween. This is made to be worn more than once and will not tear easily. The detail is amazing, from light pleating in the skirt to the vibrant colors found on the flag design.
I got the S/M size, and it fits me perfectly. I am 5'4" and weigh about 135lbs. The dress is very short, coming just below the bum, and it is more fitted in the waist and torso area with a slight flare at the skirt, giving it the illusion of being a two piece outfit. I would include a photo, but that may not be too PG. I am pretty busty, and my "girls" are very prominent in this costume. My husband loves it, but my readers might now. So I hope you'll look at this stock photo and take my word that this costume is super cute!
Overall, I am loving all of the wholesale sexy costumes at Wholesale Costume Club. There are hundreds to choose from, and they're all offered at amazing prices. These costumes are high-quality, very well made, and sure to be a hit at your next themed party or in the bedroom! Hey, when you're married with kids, spicing things up with costumes can be a lot of fun! After all, no one said costumes were only for Halloween!
