Carrying a little extra weight is no barrier to enjoying parties, and there is a huge range of fancy dress outfits available in bigger sizes. There are even some that will help accentuate the positive features of a larger physique. We stock plenty of ladies and men’s fancy dress costumes for bustier and curvier fancy dress fans.
Traditionally the place to start was with loose-fitting outfits. Cartoon characters like Tweety Bird allow lots of room for comfort and easy movement. We’ve got Tweety, Bugs, Tigger, and all your old favourites – even Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. This kind of costume is suitable for anyone, no matter what size or gender.
Bigger men can make the best of their bulk with superhero costumes. Batman and Robin outfits with sculpted chest panels are great if your six-pack is well hidden under a few layers. You can use extra weight to your advantage and become a truly formidable caveman or aim for comedy value with our men’s Ugly Sisters outfits. There is even a special page for men’s plus size costumes under the general men’s section.
Curvy ladies don’t have to miss out on sexy fancy dress costumes. We recommend taking a look at those outfits that come with a corset – this will help reduce the waistline while giving you a profile that will really get noticed. The skinny girls will envy you and any eligible bachelors in the room will certainly take a second look! Check out our Racy Red Riding Hood outfit or the Medieval Tavern Wench for two good examples.
