You still have time to make this Halloween season epic! And by epic I mean make yourself feel fierce as fuck and turn some damn heads! I of course LOVE Halloween because anytime I can get dressed up I’m in. I’m not one to go too crazy with makeup or elaborate designs, I like to make a statement with my outfit.
Hips and Curves has so much to offer us plus size babes, especially items that can be worn multiple times! No one wants to spend $50 on a “costume” that wont ever be used again or will fall apart before nights end! Invest in a few amazing pieces from Hips and Curves and those will be in your repertoire for years.
I choose two gorgeous and sexy skirts for my outfits this season. I don’t usually buy a full costume because I like to mix what I already have. My favorite that I will certainly pair again for special events is the Striped Victorian Bustle Skirt. This skirt is BEAUTIFUL and so well made. It is actually a bit heavy because of all the gorgeous strong fabric. I absolutely love it. It zips in the back and I wore it high on my waist to give a great hourglass figure. It flows out in belly area, which fits my shape great since I have a large belly. Also the skirt has ribbon ties to pull up the back and gives rouching.
I paired this skirt with a black and white bra, black underbust corset and a hat to give a modern Victorian look. Honestly I could be any type of maiden in this outfit, so I’m not so worried about naming the look. I just know I felt stunning in this sweeping skirt and it was comfortable to wear a full evening, unlike so many costumes. I wore this in a 3x and it was form fitting, so I would advise to size up if you are in between sizes.
My second look is a goth mermaid vibe. I’m on a goth kick. HAHA This Quinn Lace Mermaid Shaping Skirt screams sexy and gave my booty so much love! Seriously I just wanted everyone watch me walk away and see how great my ass looked. HAHA I also wore this in a 3x and it was tight, so I would advise to size up if you are in between sizes.
Again I paired this with a strappy bra, keeping with the all black, and added a headpiece I made to spice it up for the season. I LOVE anything mermaid cut like this skirt, but was a little nervous about my belly. However this skirt has shaping attributes and helps hold the belly in place. Note this piece is very form fitting and very see through with only lace on bottom and a thin fabric layer on top half.
Pair this with a corset, crop top or tank to complete a look. Add accessories and boom you are a badass merbabe! You could even add to the skirt itself to make it more mermaidesque, like add green and blue rhinestones.
Just like the victorian skirt this one is very well made and has multiple layers at the top. The quality on both these is 100x better than you’ll get from a costume shop or chain store. Plus Hips and Curves is made for us large babes! Stop stressing about finding something to fit your ample body and just go with a place you know embraces those curves. I’ve spent countless amounts of money and time on cheap one time use XL costumes that I would squeeze into and rip by the end of the night. I am DONE with that none since and you should be too. This Halloween season you do you! Be whatever you want and HAVE FUN! Let Hips and Curves take care of the looking good part for you!
