Halloween Costumes For All Body Shapes Not every woman has a body that looks fantastic in the skimpiest Halloween costumes, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find a costume that will look killer on your figure. Regardless of whether you are a petite woman or want to buy a plus size costume, you will end up looking fabulous at your upcoming Halloween party if you take time to find the appropriate costume for your body type. Here are a few things to consider when you are trying to find the very best Halloween costume for your specific body type. Hourglass Figure For people who have an hourglass figure, there are several types of Halloween costumes that will look amazing on you. You will want to choose clothes that flatter your curves, since your hips and shoulders are approximately the same width and you have a more defined waistline. Any costume that contains pencil skirts and defined waistlines will look amazing on you. If you're able to find a costume with a belt around the middle, it will further define your narrow waist and curvy figure. Because your hips and chest already are fairly prominent in the first place, try to avoid costumes that add bulk to your hips and your chest. You might want to consider a sexy cat suit or a more classic princess dress that can flatter your figure. Apple Shape Your shoulders and chest are broader than your hips when you've got an apple-shaped body. If you are a full apple shape, then you want to find costumes that will help fill out the bottom half of your body and will not accentuate the top half. Look for costumes that have full skirts because this will help add balance to your body. Always look for skirts that are at least knee-length, because anything shorter will give the appearance of bulkiness, which is precisely what you want to avoid. There are numerous plus size costumes that look great on apple-shaped figures. Consider a Greek goddess costume with loose, flowing fabric or a Marilyn Monroe costume that will draw attention to your chest rather than your waist. The Pear Shape For those who have a pear-shaped body, your waist is rather small while your hips and thighs are full. When you're picking a costume, your goal is to minimize the size of your hips while adding shape to your waist. Don’t purchase costumes that are tight on your behind or that have extremely clingy fabric. Find dresses that highlight your small waist instead, and hang more freely on your hip area. Accessorize with flashier belts or a bodice to draw attention to your waist. It might also be a good idea to wear chunky jewelry that will bring more attention upwards and away from your hips. You might choose a costume that cinches at the waist, or even a pirate wench that contains a bodice top and a more sweeping skirt. Athletic Shape You'll want to purchase a costume that will add curves wherever possible if you have a more athletic shape, or known as a boy shape. Show off your fit, tone shoulders by buying sleeveless costumes or costumes with thin straps. You may also add dimension to your body by finding a Costume Nation
