When October rolls around, I always find myself scrambling for a costume. Plus size Halloween costumes aren’t readily available in stores, especially beyond a standard “queen size” so costume shopping always requires a mixture of creativity and planning. Because I hate the idea of purchasing something I’ll only wear once, I often find myself looking for pieces I can incorporate into my everyday wardrobe.
One way to ensure your Halloween costume doesn’t lose it’s allure come midnight on October 31st is to incorporate some lingerie into your Halloween costume. Many plus size lingerie retailers have dedicated costume sections, but they also sell pieces such as corsets, tights, gloves, and bodysuits that you can purchase individually to build your own costume. Whether pop culture themed or a timeless character costume, lingerie can be a vital part of your plus size Halloween costume.
1. Make ‘Em Say Meow
While on a hunt for lingerie bodysuits, I discovered plus size retailer Ashley Stewart has quite a few options for catsuits. Though not explicitly lingerie, these full bodysuits will certainly have you Catwoman ready. From leather to mesh and even a zipper front, Ashley Stewart has catsuits available up to a size 26.
2. No Bones About It
Torrid is a plus size retailer that keeps things a bit cheeky year-round, so it’s no surprise their lingerie section has a few Halloween-themed items. This skeleton crop cami is made from a cotton/spandex mix. With no underwire, it makes for a comfy costume you can wear to party all night long.
3. Twirl On
This tulle skirt maxi skirt from lingerie retailer Yandy is so elegant, I think wearing it for Halloween would making me want to be a princess every day. Pair it with a bra and panty set for the bedroom or a basic bodysuit for your Halloween costume. And don’t forget your crown!
4. Fairytale Fantasy
Part of the second intimates collection from indie plus darling Chubby Cartwheels, this mesh hooded capelet can be worn with the velvet strapless bodysuit for a vintage-inspired look or jazzed up for a fantasy-themed costume. With sizing up to 5X and customization options available, Chubby Cartwheels pieces are a costume dream come true.
5. The Raven
The costume section from plus size lingerie brand Hips & Curves engages the imagination while incorporating lingerie pieces with ease. The components of this Raven costume include a cape, a satin corset, opera length gloves and a strappy caged bra can all been worn individually in their own way for a fashion-forward look.
6. Caught In Your Web
If the name Bones Lingerie doesn’t give it away, this is one indie brand that takes Halloween seriously. Although their high-waisted panties are only available on the smaller-side of plus up to a XXL, they are too spooky not to mention. The “Horror” section features everything from witch-print panties and cat-eye bralette to glitter velvet spiderweb underwear.
7. Material Girl
If you want a vintage-inspired costume, you can’t go wrong with a plus size crinoline like this one from Re/Dress paired with long-line bra such as this one from SimplyBe. From 1950s pinup girl to an ’80s Madonna, these classic underpinnings are costume foundations across the decades.
8. The Naked Dress
Halloween can be the one time you step out of your comfort zone and take on a more daring persona. If you wanna try the celebrity naked dress trend, lingerie can be one to get an ultra sexy style. The cutouts on this seamless chemise paired with some thigh high boots, a choker, and an oversized denim jacket give me total Kim K. vibes.
Building a costume from lingerie allows you to stock up on delicates while channeling your every spooky or sexy Halloween whim. There’s no telling who you can become!
