Plus-size Halloween costumes: more style, bigger selections

Dressing up for Halloween is always a treat—unless you’re plus sized, in which case it’s probably a little tricky. While people who wear standard sizes have always had their pick of Halloween costumes—there are easy Halloween costumes, scary Halloween costumes, even punny Halloween costumes— plus-size Halloween costumes have been hard to come by.

Luckily, that’s beginning to change, as Halloween costumes are finally becoming more size inclusive. Plus-size Halloween costumes are more comfortable, flattering and confidence-boosting than ever before, so you can be cute, creepy or a classic character at any size. We’ve found dozens of great Halloween costume ideas for women and men that prove the only time size does matter is when it comes to the candy bars you’re giving out.
