Welcome to Plus Size Costume Shop
We are all back at work after a lovely, relaxing holiday. Thank you to our amazing customers who patiently waited throughout December for their items! We are looking forward to an amazing year and plan to expand on our Renaissance line, bringing you a larger selection of bodices and gowns. Hopefully we will have more news about that soon. Happy New Year to everyone!
Plus Size Costume Shop started as a small, mother-daughter owned company in 1999. The company was born out of personal necessity; we were in need of some fabulous costumes and quickly realized that we could not find what we wanted anywhere. With many years of seamstress experience behind us, we decided to make some costumes and offer them on eBay at Halloween. The demand was apparant and Plus Size Costume Shop was started.
Over the last 15 years, we have been steadily growing, expanding our catalog of costumes and creating costume magic for customers in every U.S. state and countries all over the world. We now sell primarily on our own web site, however still occassionally list on eBay and Etsy during the Halloween season. In addition to offering a full line of exquisite Halloween costumes, we also offer Renaissance and historical clothing, bridal gowns, and Christmas and Victorian caroler costumes too. We have also recently expanded our standard size range to include extended super sizes (6X and 7X).
What Makes Us Different?
Over the years, many companies have started offering larger sizes to compete in the plus-size market. However, many of these offerings are imported from other countries and the sizing can be inaccurate and the quality can be very poor. We have designed all of our own patterns so that our sizing always matches the given measurements. We also hand-pick all of the fabrics and embellishments to guarantee that they are of the highest quality and every item is thoroughly checked for quality before it leaves our studio. Our costumes hold up to years of wear and are often sought out by theater groups and reenactors who use their costumes on a daily basis. We are also able to offer custom orders (depending on season), color changes on nearly every costume we create and sizing adjustments. We are available to answer any questions you may have about our costumes and strive to give every customer an excellent buying experience from our company.
