Costume Ideas for All Body Sizes

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. There’s an excitement in the air, and there are so many opportunities to be a little wild and crazy! So if you’re planning your costume ahead of time, here are a few ideas for plus-sized women:

Your body is perfect, and it’s okay to show it off in a costume that feels right for you!

When choosing a costume, first address the question: what does your body look like? If you’re short and petite, for example, then it’s going to be easier for you to find items that fit well and look good. If you have a larger frame or some curves, your options might be more limited—but they’re still out there!

You don’t need any fancy accessories or clothes in order to feel great on Halloween night. However, if you want some extra help making sure that everything fits right (or just want some new stuff), here are some tips:

Try on different sizes of the same garment before buying it so that you can get an idea of what will fit best.

Buy clothes made with stretchy material so they’ll fit comfortably over whatever else is underneath them (like an undershirt). A basic cotton tank top can also work well as an underlayer; just make sure it isn’t too tight around the chest area if this is where things tend to cling together when getting dressed up for events like these!


Witch and sorceress costumes are a classic choice if you’re looking for plus size costumes, and can be found in many different styles. Whether you’re looking for a simple dress costume or something more elaborate, there’s sure to be something that will work for you at any price point. The best thing about these costumes is their accessories like a wig, makeup and even eye lashes with feather plumes. You can either put together an outfit on your own or get yourself a costume from an online shop like Smiffys. According to their website, the costumes are “exclusively designed by our in-house team of top-notch UK designers to ensure that whatever plus size costumes you choose, we’ve tailored it specifically to fit just right.”


If you’re looking for a devil costume, you have a few options. The most traditional way to go is with red and black—the colors of fire and brimstone, respectively. If you want to be sexy, go with something in leather or fishnet. If you want to be scary, get some horns or wings on your costume and wear all black!

A tail is also an essential part of the whole idea; if you don’t have one already, think about getting one made out of wire or foam. It’ll add some flair to what might otherwise be a simple attire choice for Halloween night (or depending on how much time and money you want to spend).

Minnie Mouse

You don’t need to be a kid to wear Minnie Mouse. It’s a classic costume, and it’s fun for the whole family. For adults who want to feel like kids again, this is a great choice.

Minnie Mouse is also a good choice if you’re looking for something that’s comfortable and easy to put on: just throw on your polka-dot dress and bow headband, then go out dancing all night long!

That’s it for our list of costumes for all body types! Remember that your costume doesn’t have to be about being sexy or showing off your figure—it can be a character from a movie, TV show, book, or even just something cute and fun. If you’re still struggling with what to wear on Halloween night, there are tons of options for both men and women in our lists above. We hope these helped you find inspiration so that everyone feels comfortable showing off their true selves in whatever way possible.
