Michael Costello Project Runway dresses, rompers & outfits are stunning but are they worth it?
Michael Costello X Revolve dresses are one of the brands I have the most of in my closet. I’ve been buying this designers clothing for years as I love his sexy, fashion forward styles which always have unique touches to them. If you’re not familiar with the brand, Michael Costello is the Project Runway designer whose designs can be found on his website or Revolve. Most pieces range from $200-300 but are they worth it? Here’s my honest Michael Costello Revolve review.

What kind of clothes does Michael Costello X Revolve make
Michael Costello X Revolve collection has over 500 pieces from casual dresses and tops to cocktail dresses, gowns and sparkly jumpsuits. They tend to be sexy, fashion forward and have lots of unique features. One of the things I love most is the unique features which make his designs stand out. His dresses are some of the ones I get complimented the most on.
How is the quality
I’ve never had an issue with quality, it’s always pretty consistent. Most of his dresses are fully lined and I feel like you get what you pay for most of the time.
How does Michael Costello sizing run
I wear an XS in most brands including Michael Costello and his styles normally fit me like a glove. Some brands don’t work with my bust but his do which is why I keep going back to this designer. The only tailoring I’ve had to do is on this green gown which is surprising as I’m 5’2″.
What Michael Costello dresses & designs are in my closet
This black dress is probably the Michael Costello dress I get the most compliments on and have worn the most. The panel at the front is actually a nude mesh insert and the dress is backless making it sexy from both the back and the front. It’s fully lined but it is dry clean only.
This hot pink dress is way sexier than I’d normally wear but I couldn’t resist the color. One feature Michael tends to include in a lot of his designs is really padded shoulders. So if that’s not your thing, definitely read the product description and reviews before ordering. Personally, I’m here for it. Just don’t forget the double sided tape with this one and it is hand wash only.
This was my first gown from Michael Costello X Revolve. What I loved about it was the backless style, color and the fact that it’s under $300. The downside was that it’s not lined and that it needed a lot of tailoring as I was way too short for it.
I had it shortened and added horsehair to hem, had shoulder straps taken in, and had the zipper removed and added a longer length one as it was too low cut for more torso. However, even after all the tailoring it still worked out less than a lot of other gowns.
I got this lightweight black mini dress for last summer and got so much wear out of it. It’s fully lined and hand wash only but it dries really nicely. The straps are also adjustable which I always appreciate as I have such a short torso.
The chiffon emerald green romper is my newest find. I got it for the holidays as I love a looser style for Christmas day. Especially one with an elasticated waist! Pros: There’s 2 ways to tie it for 2 different looks.
The first as I have it in the video review secondly to criss cross the straps around the neck as in the photo. Cons: Like most of his clothes, it’s hand wash only.
