Wishing I didn't have to say this but I would rate this a minus star. I hope to exchange it. The hanger area is toward the front and costumes fall off easily because they are not fully surrounded by material like typical bags are. This is also verrrry heavy even when empty. Although durable fabric, it is not very functional.
I got this for recital this year. I am in jazz, lyrical, ballet, and tap and I was in 5 dances, so I had five costumes. Don't get me wrong, this was a great bag! Just not for me. The picture makes it look WAYY more roomy than it actually is.
Works very well for many costumes, but not for poofy ones. I used it for my ballet performance and it held everything. It is very long which a plus is but not very wide (volume) to fit many "poofy" costumes. The pockets are very big and nice to hold lots of accessories but do not keep them very organized. Overall= wonderful. 5 stars
