Plus size costumes used to be harder to find. There are so many costumes available today, that you can find any type you choose by just searching your local costume shop or typing a search on-line.
Remember when larger sized costumes or dresses meant a mult-colored muumuu? There weren’t a lot of choices for cute Halloween costumes. Last month I began researching costumes in earnest, (as I wanted to order early for fear of the sold out or unavailable plus size costume). I was checking the available sizes and to my surprise I found nearly every costume I checked had a plus size version of the costume. Of the costumes, I found 5 favorites.
Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz – I liked how this costume had both sexy and sweet styles available. It’s also a great combination for a group of friends going to a party to wear the entire cast or parts of the cast. The costume was available for women and men in the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Glenda the Good Witch and the Lion. Really cute styles and inexpensive prices.
Wonder Woman – This is one of my hands down favorite costume (and coincidentally the one I ordered). I really feel that Wonder Woman is so powerful she needs a plus size woman to really pull off the costume.
Little Red Riding Hood – This Halloween favorite is easy and fun to wear and immediately recognizable. There are also cute little baskets for sale which have the wolf’s head inside which can make a really interesting conversation starter.
Shrek – There is the entire costume available, including the mask, for men and the women have the Fiona dress. Pretty terrific costume for couples.
Prince Valiant – This gorgeous costume is perfect for the gentleman escorting a princess to the ball. The costume comes complete with sword and tabard, as well as helmet. (depending on the shop)
There are hundreds of other styles available. The costume’s I’ve mentioned run between $ 24.99 – $ 60.00, if bought on-line. Many of the stores offer free shipping which is a bonus. I would suggest ordering early so that you can have the costume before Halloween.
