Costumes for Plus Size Women

by wrapitup4me

Going to a costume party? Don't know what to wear? Here are some fabulous ideas for those of us who are generously endowed with curves (not necessarily in the 'right' places).

Stop fighting nature and the scales and accept that you are larger than is currently fashionable. We plus-sized women were born in the wrong time and wrong place - once upon a time, large women were much more appreciated than today.

When you are dressed well, you feel better about yourself and have more fun. What are costume parties for if not to have fun! So find something here that will flatter your build and get set for a great time.

Look stunning in a costume specially designed for your body type.

Principles in Dressing Well for the Full Figured Woman

Baggy clothing accentuates broadness rather than hiding it. Even if you are embarrassed by your bulges, you are better served by wearing clothes that fit your body lines.

Solid colors are better than blatant patterns and having our blouses match our pants or skirt is the right way to go.

Costumes for Every Occasion

Costumes are for Halloween, Purim (Jewish Holiday in March), Dress-Up Balls, theater and parades on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Canada Day, 4th of July, and more. Below the description of the costume on the webpage you will find accessories for sale as well.

If you have great knees and shins this Gothic Midnight Vampiress Costume is for you. The side slit draws attention to the line of the leg and elongates the look.

The design of the sleeves and the V-shaped bodice also accentuate the vertical aspect, minimizing the width of your waist.

Adding a long chunky necklace and a tall hat will complete the look you want to achieve.

Be a Fortune Teller at your next costume party: With a calf-length skirt and boots, attention is drawn downward,and this helps flatter your figure.

The wide sleeves and off-the-shoulder neckline also draws attention from your midsection and can accentuate your face and bust-line for a more attractive appearance.

The waist-line is emphasized but with the scarf across the hips, you look sexier without being cheap-looking.
