Halloween Costume Ideas for Plus Size Women


Some women might find Halloween costumes intimidating because it shows skin and, well, a whole lot of curves. But hey, what’s a little sexy without skin exposure, right? Nevertheless, there are many Halloween costume ideas for plus size women. You just need to know how to work it with a costume that accentuates your best features. Take the following ideas for flattering costumes for fuller figures.

Size Matters

Wanna go daring and do a Princess Leia in a bikini tip? Do not go for sizes that are too small for you, so you are on the safe side in avoiding wardrobe malfunctions and spill-overs. If you want to create an ample chest or cleavage, don’t get a smaller top. Get a push-up bra. Ill-fitting clothing is not just uncomfortable — it also makes you look like you’re trying too hard.

Only expose strategic places

You may have cleavage to amp up your confidence, but go easy on the neckline. Make sure your chest is tastefully exposed. A few inches of cleavage is often the best way to do it. Likewise, fully covered costumes are just as sexy. Think Uma Thurman in Kill Bill or Kate Beckinsale in Underworld. Sexy without too much skin, right? In fact these are slimming Halloween costumes.

Think creative while considering your figure

Getting a Halloween costume does not necessarily mean looking fabulously sexy. There are costumes that will fit your figure perfectly. A va va voom ensemble may be as simple as a French maid or little Bo Peep. It’s how you’ll morph into character that will make your costume a lot more interesting than how it looks. Maybe that would be one reason for you to be a little more sociable, right?

Splurge on corsettes

Corsettes are specially made to create a desirable waist and an hourglass figure. You can go for costumes like those found in Moulin Rouge or Vegas themed parties. Make sure to wear stockings or leggings to make your thighs and legs shapelier!

A lady can look good for Halloween no matter what shape or size she is. This proves she has the confidence to strut her stuff without being overly tacky. A well-fitting costume not only enhances her curves, but it also makes her look and feel good — isn’t that what we all want?
