So, this costume comes with the brown "armor" with the attached red cape, a white tunic for underneath which is kind of like a satin/silky sleep shirt for girls, two bicep circlets, two forearm bands, a headband, and 2 shin covers.
For reference: I am 5'9 and 170 lbs with an average-athletic build. I am not a muscle-bound gym rat, nor am I overweight. I have a solid frame with decent muscle mass. i bought the Medium and the fit of the tunic and armor pieces is just right.
Issues: The image makes it look like the front of the brown armor is a solid piece. It isn't. It's more like a set of ribbons that hang down so when you move they swing and the white tunic underneath shows through. Also, the armor is only for the front. The only thing covering your back end is the tunic and the cape. The tunic ties in the back with a strip of fabric which seems like it will work well enough. The bicep circlets are velcro fastened, so you have to awkwardly set them over...
Husband wore this for Halloween. He says 4.5 stars would be more accurate - the arm bands and head band were pretty cheesy. The rest of the costume looked great. He has a bit of a belly, and it fit well and didn't look weird like some costumes can. Expect to wear something under it unless you enjoy a breeze. It really is like a huge white shirt with a brown apron and attached cape. He also bought the "Heavy Duty Plastic ROMAN LEG GUARDS gladiator costume," "300 The Movie, Spartan Shield, 17" Diameter," and "Rubies Long Roman Costume Sword." They were all pretty good, too. FYI, this costume doesn't include a sword and those aren't sandals, just leg wraps, so prepare to find those separately. He wore some Army green KEENS and they looked like part of the costume.

I purchased this for my teenaged sons. They are 5'10" or so and 180-ish. The Adult medium size fit them just fine. The fake leather part of the costume (brown) was, of course, all wrinkled when it arrived squished in the package. I was able to smooth it out by ironing on a low setting from the backside with a damp cloth. I think if you used a high heat the "fabric" would melt. So, be very careful! The white undergarment is very thin. You will need to wear shorts under it. The red cape is awesome. And, all the accessories that come with the costume are adjustable - the arm bands, the headband, the leg things...great stuff! The wrist covers are a little big but not overly so. The little kids at VBS this summer were very impressed with the "Roman soldiers" that came to see them.
