White Lab Coat Costume
Good for Bulk Purchases BUT...
I bought 20 of these for a children's birthday party. They did not have a button closure and the edges were stitched, not hemmed. Each lab coat came in an individually wrapped, sealed plastic bag, which is just one of the reasons I was very surprised to find that most of them had brown dirt spots when I opened them. Fortunately, i had enough time to wash all of them before the party. After the first wash, about 15 of them came clean. After four more washes, all but two were clean enough to use for the party. If you're buying in bulk, this lab coat is of passable quality for the price... Just be sure they arrive in time to wash them. Mine did not require ironing. If you're purchasing only one lab coat, say for a costume, I would recommend something else. For a little more money, you can find lots of options with real hems and a button.

Good for the price
This coat is a lot less expensive than any doctor costume you'll find in a toy or party store, and it's still really cute. It's really big on my daughter (who wears a size 6), so I'd guess it's probably about a size 10-12. It's still perfect for playing dress-up, easy for her to slip on and off by herself, and it will fit her for a long time. My only complaint is that it should have some type of closure in front. Even just a strip of Velcro would be nice. It has nothing.

We bought these for my child's mad scientist party and it was a huge hit. Loved these and they were affordable!

Great lab coat for bigger kids
I bought this for Halloween as part of my son's scientist costume. He's 7 and this lab coat was too big for him. Seems to be sized for 10+, but it worked for us and we can keep it for a few years!

Good for costumes
Like others have said, its not the highest quality item, but its not that expensive and beats having to sew one yourself! The fabric is nice, its just serger sewn on the hems. Also, it does run big- I needed it for my 11-year old son to play Albert Einstein & it is still plenty big on him. Thanks, Oriental Trading!

Great for child's costume/play
I wanted this to go with a play Dr. kit for child's dress-up play for our granddaughter. It was a bit flimsier than I expected, but for the price cannot complain. To make sure it would stay on since it is made of a rather slipery polyester material, I added two large snaps down the front.

This is a great value for the money. It runs big and my small 12 year old wore it with no problems.

I was disappointed in this item largely due to the fact that it seemed unfinished. The material was very thin, there were no buttons, and the edges (collar, cuffs, bottom of coat, etc.) were all just material cut by a surger instead of a folded, hemmed, and finished edge.

Had to alter
I purchased this item for my daughter's Mad Scientist Day at school. It is basic which is fine, but it has a raw edge finished with a serger. It makes it look very cheap. It also had what appeared to be an oil stain on the bottom 6 inches under the pocket (which was mentioned in another review). I was hoping that issue had been resolved by the time I ordered. This is sold as a boy's 7-10. My daughter is a size 10 and it was falling off of her, be aware it runs big. I will say that Oriental Trading has a wonderful Customer Service attitude and had options to resolve my complaint. I will continue to shop OTC because of the selection and customer service.
