Plus Size Halloween Costumes
Halloween is always fun; there is candy, chocolate and dressing up! You can choose to make up your own Halloween costume or you can always buy one ready-made if you are not very skilled in creating costumes.
I always prefer to buy my costumes ready-made. If you buy good quality costumes they can be worn for years on different occasions. Sometimes you can even create a different costume from and old one just by adding new accessories like a different pair of shoes, a hat, a wig, a feather boa or a cape. That is why I always think of my costumes as any other item of clothing I might wear and thus, I choose them with great care.
Best Places to Find Plus Size Halloween Dresses
This year I can recommend 4 places to buy a sexy Halloween Plus size costume: Torrid.com, Flirtcatalogue, Amazon.com and of course Ebay. These sites have the best and sexiest costumes in plus size I have found. Who do said you need to dress as a pumpkin if you are over a size 14? Now you can be a sexy kitten, a zombie prom Queen, a naughty pirate or a seductive witch even if you wear a plus size. Just remember that there are some costumes that are a better fit for plus sized women.

Tips For Buying Plus size Halloween Costumes
- Choose a character that suits your shape. It might sound evident but if you don’t have a Miss World figure, do not try to squeeze into a Princess Leia costume. If you wear plus size clothes because you are very curvy and hourglass shaped, a Betty Boop or Marilyn Monroe style costume would look fantastic on you. On the contrary, if you are apple shaped, a gothic costume with a strong waist cincher will give you a better shape and look better on you. Always think about your body shape (not your size) before buying a costume.
- Go for dark colours. You don’t need to go all in black because it is Halloween or because you wear a plus size. Instead of wearing a black only costume, try wearing darker shades of your favourite colours. For example, a pirate costume or a Saloon girl costume in dark red or burgundy would be much more flattering than a bright red costume and much more fun than an all black one.
- Avoid metallic colours. Metallic colours reflect too much light and give the impression of a fuller figure.
- Wear high heels. Accessorise your costume with a pair of high heels to make your legs look thinner.
- Dare to wear a short costume -like the saloon girl costume on the right- if you have beautiful legs.
- Plunging necklines look beautiful on women with a generous breast size. Just make sure that the neckline is not too low and that you are wearing a strong-hold bra. Wearing a plunging neckline also draws attention from an undefined waist.
- If you are apple shaped then a short baby-doll style dress will skip over your bumps. Try the sexy kitty dress below, it skimps over your bumpy bits and reveals shapely legs and a generous bust.

thelyricwriter: yes, it is a shame that so many called plus size clothes are just bigger versions of smaller sizes rather than clothes cut to fit a different type of body. Thankfully, there are people who specializes in making good fitting clothes in plus sizes, clothes that make you look and feel good.
Maralexa: Thanks for the ups. Fashion should be for everyone, regardless of shape and size. We all have the right to look and feel good with what we wear.
Marilyn Alexander from Vancouver, Canada on October 01, 2011:
Excellent article and very cute examples! It is so much fun when you can dress for Halloween and look sensational despite being a little larger in size. Everyday clothes should take this into consideration much more than they do now.
thanks, Up and Awesome

I commend you on this hub. Great article. Many people forget that we all come in different shapes and sizes. I agree with your view on the market. Well written!

kerlynb: Yes, slim ladies would look great wearing the above costumes, but they are specially suitable for fitting curvy and plus size figures. It is easy to find clothes when you are slim, the problem comes when you have curves or you wear a plus size because there are so many badly cut clothes in the market. The sites I mentioned especialized in creating fashionable clothes in big sizes. Thanks for comenting kerlynb.

Cute! Even slim ladies would look lovely in these costumes :)
