If You’re Plus-Sized And Want To Look Extra Plus-Sized On Halloween, Check Out These Costumes

By  | 

Every Halloween we look at the ridiculous costumes out there for women and share our heads. Sexy Tree. Sexy Sponge Bob. Sexy Hamburger. As a plus-sized woman with a modicum of self-respect and a dash of intelligence, those costumes aren’t happening anywhere near my body. When you’re a fat chick, costume makers make sure you have access to Sexy Sailor in a plus-size (go on with your bad self), but they also provide options that are way, way more awesome than any horrible Sexy Crayon costume could ever be.

Sure, you can get your sexy on with costumes that are “also available in plus-sizes,” but I prefer the ones from the plus-sized section that should be labelled, “Not available below a 1X. Because come on.”

1. Candy Corn

In it’s description of this costume, the Party City site says, “Complete your look with a long-sleeve shirt and leggings!” Yes. And possibly a large jacket and sweatpants. We get it, Party City.

2. Maleficent

You’ll look like Angelina Jolie, but you’ll be shaped like a garbage bag.

3. Pirate (with Spanx)

This costume is labelled on the Party City site as a “Shaper Costume.” That means that it has a “…built-in bodysuit [that] cinches and boosts in all the right places.” Mm-hm. Sounds fantastic. Give me one of those cincher costumes that will push my enormous boobs up to my chin and pinch me when I am trying to enjoy a Kit Kat.

4. Fiona from Shrek

Remember the fat ogre with a heart of gold? Yeah. That’s you.

5. Nun

Flattering and sexless? Sign me up! (She does have a saucy shoe, though.)

    I feel that by being plus-sized and 20 weeks pregnant this Halloween I’ve already done my part to look as HUGE as humanly possible.

      When I was pregnant I didn’t even go that far. I was about two weeks from popping that baby out so I said “screw it” and wore my regular maternity clothes to any Halloween parties.

      I had an orange maternity tee with a black jack-o-lantern face on the belly.

    I’m pretty sure those shoes on the nun are not approved footwear… 😀

    I will be going as my usual, “Curmudgeon who likes watching her kids dress up but does not enjoy dressing up herself.”

      I’ll be going as ‘woman who is walking around with a thermos of spiked cider… for the warmth’.

    Being a female around halloween blows unless you make your own costume, all the options are slutty something or polyester garbage bag.

    Hey, that Monster head/shoulder thing is probably the best Halloween costume I’ve ever had. I think it’s insane they tried to make it a “sexy” costume. I just got that, the monster hands, and wore a college sweater/backpack and said I was a Monsters University student. =D I really wish I could wear the monster bit more often.

    Can’t a woman choose a non-risque costume without being mocked for the choice? Plus-sized or petite, a woman doesn’t have to put her body on display to be leered at by strangers just because it’s October 31st…

      I don’t think anyone is being mocked for their choice of costume. What the author seems to be mocking is the apparent opinion of costume makers that all plus-sized women hate their bodies and don’t want to wear something sexy.

      Almost all the costumes she mocked are ones that actually cover the woman’s body rather than putting it on display. I don’t care if an adult woman wants to dress like a streetwalker on Halloween (it’s her decision), but those of us who choose something family-friendly like the Raggedy Ann or Mrs. Potato Head shouldn’t be made fun of for it.

      I really don’t get that she’s making fun of those who want to dress conservatively. She’s making fun of the fact that if a plus sized person wanted to dress more risque…they can’t…because ‘fat’. Whereas, if you are “typical/average” finding a conservative option is virtually impossible. So basically if you’re considered “plus size” you are not permitted to wear something that shows skin. If you’re average you aren’t permitted to wear something conservative. That’s the “ha ha ha idiots” punchline here.

      I think Mommyish should hire you to write their sister site “Mommywhat?” where you can patiently explain the sarcasm in all the articles.

      Lol! @disqus_SeYQIE2hoa:disqus is there room for me at the table? 😉 Seriously though, sarcasm font. Well, I don’t know that it would help some people. But I do spend a lot of time going, No…that’s not what that means.

    Wow. This article managed to both slut-shame and body-shame. “The only thing worse than wearing a slutty costume is looking like a fatty, amirite??” Gross, Mommyish. You used to be better than this.
