Don’t miss out on the magic of Halloween just because you haven’t found the perfect costume yet. It can be tricky to find a costume that fits correctly, regardless of your size. So many costumes are only available in one size fits most, and various sizes and shapes aren’t taken into the equation. It can be extremely frustrating to purchase something that fits incorrectly, and is made cheaply.
Luckily, so many companies are taking note and have expanded their selection of plus size costumes, so whether you want to be sexy, scary, or silly, there’s a costume for you. We’ve compiled a list of 10 of our favorite plus size costumes that won’t force you to settle for something ill fitting or boring.
If none of the costumes on this list are quite right, there are so many other exciting and fun plus size costumes to browse.
1. Three Piece Friendly Skies Flight Attendant
This is a costume that works for most ages and is well made for the price. It can be seen as a bit sexy but not overly revealing. The peplum skirt is an extremely figure flattering feature. It’s cut slightly low along the chest, but the skirt is a little longer, which is a nice balance. The costume fits true to size so you’re able to order your normal size without having to worry about the fit. The costume comes with the full flight attendant dress as well as the scarf and hat. Consider a pair of gold or red pumps to bring out the color details of the costume.
Price: $32.68 – $78.74 depending on size
2. Women’s Peace Love Hippie Costume
Feelin’ groovy this Halloween? This hippie costume is so fun and colorful. It comes with all of the necessary items so you won’t have to supplement with too many other purchases. The costume includes the dress with an attached vest, patterned hippie headband, and fringed boot covers, which can easily be placed over some brown boots that you already own. If you are looking to add a few accessories to make the costume come alive even more, grab a pair of these ’60s inspired glasses, and this peace sign earring and necklace set.
3. Women’s Fashion Flapper Plus Size Costume
The details and quality of this flapper costume make it well worth the price tag. The fringes are long and sewed on well and the dress features a bit of sequined detailing around the neck. It also offers a modest length, something that can be lacking in many women’s Halloween costumes on the market. The costume set includes both the dress and the headband pictured, but if you’d like to include some of the other 1920’s accessories without spending a fortune, this set includes a black boa, strand of pearls, and a toy cigarette for right around $10.
Price: $26.99 (46 percent off MSRP)
4. Women’s Plus Size Curvy Nurse
If you’re looking for a costume on the sexier side, this nurse costume has quite a few aspects that put it in that department. The low cut of the neckline as well as the shorter hemline of the skirt both reveal a good amount of skin. The underwire cups help provide a bit of lift and the body shaper gives a slimming, curve hugging finish to the costume. The costume also comes with a shrug and nurse hat headband to finish the look. Forego your typical purse or clutch for this toy nurse bag – it’s large enough to securely hold the essentials (lipgloss, keys, wallet).
Price: $55.99 – $79.95 depending on size
5. Women’s Plus Size Halftime Hottie
You can combine both sporty and sexy with this referee costume. To play up the sexy a bit more, consider sizing down so that the shorts fall just a few inches higher on the hips. Since this costume is on the less expensive side, we recommend spending a bit extra to accessorize. Details in any costume make the biggest impact. Grab these knee high athletic socks, this ref’s whistle, and this ref’s hat. If you’re interested in a sporty costume but this one isn’t for you, this baseball player costume or this racecar driver costume are both great options.
6. Day of the Dead Costume Set With Mask
This is such a fun, cool, and colorful costume. It also requires a little fun and creativity with the facial makeup to really bring this costume to life. The back of the skirt hangs a little lower than the front and the colors are bold and vibrant. It comes with the dress, scarf, and mask. If you’d like to purchase a petticoat like the one pictured, this is a great option that’s available in a number of bright colors. If you’re not confident in your makeup skills, you can purchase a temporary tattoo set instead with all of the necessary Day of the Dead components.
7. Plus Size Olympic Goddess Costume
Comfort is certainly a priority when it comes to Halloween costumes and this one will have you covered, comfortable, and feeling like a Greek Goddess. The color is a dusty off-white and the dress features a full length, one shoulder design. The fabric is extremely lightweight, so consider layering with a thicker slip. If you’re looking for a Greek Goddess costume but this one isn’t quite your style, there are so many gorgeous Greek gowns available for Halloween. Check out some of the top plus size options here.
8. Plus Size Three Piece Bewitching Witch
While dressing up like a witch isn’t the most original Halloween costume, there’s a reason it’s such a popular choice.

The short flared dress of this costume is super flattering, belting at the waist for an hourglass silhouette.
