Plus Size Halloween Costuming

It’s that time of year again.  As a plus-size woman (like anyone over size 12 juniors, according to most costume makers) I was less than excited about slogging through the land-mine-filled landscape that is Halloween costume shopping.
Last year Daddy and I made plans to attend a pretty spectacular Halloween dungeon party.  Finding a Halloween costume that I didn’t hate in a size that fit me was pretty challenging.  I attempted to do some in-person searching.  I tried Spirit.  The selection there was less than amazing.  I tried Party City.  Ditto.
I discovered something unfortunate.  Adult stores, Spirit Halloween, and such are just going to waste my time (and yours if you need a plus-size costume) and likely get me upset.  It’s incredibly discouraging to go shopping and feel as though nothing fits.  It can be incredibly damaging to the self esteem.
So I compiled a list of online retailers with excellent selections.  I recommend having a cloth measuring tape and taking measurements, plus reading the comments on any item prior to purchase.  If comments indicate it runs small, I will go up a size.
[Torrid][].  Their stuff is cute and has the bonus of being actual clothing.  I still regularly wear the Wonder Woman dress I bought around Halloween last year.  I always get compliments on it.
[Hips and Curves][] always has good stuff.
[Leg Avenue on Amazon][].  Their plus size cozy costumes come in a variety of adorable animals and fit really well.  Last year I was a cozy shark for that party!
[Woman’s Day][] put together some tutorials that might help inspire some to create neat costumes out of different pieces.
[][]. When I went poking around, they had over 500 different options for women, and if you filter for “sexy,” they had 85.  My only concern would be if they fit like [this][].
So I figured I’d save some of you the trouble of researching this, since it can get pretty discouraging out there for anyone who wears a plus size around this time of year.
Good luck and happy shopping!

    I did not see it in your list…Hot Topic has a Plus Size line that goes up to their version of a 5X. Check the size chart measurements to be sure, as they usually do run a tad small. I’ve bought an Ursula dress and a Meg (from Hercules), plus a TARDIS dress.

    I use Halloween stores to purchase socks, costume accessories, wigs, and housewares.
