Calling all swashbuckling pirate queens, it’s time to take a look at plus size pirate costumes for Halloween. I don’t do much dressing up around Halloween, but at the top of my list when it comes to dressing up for a costume party is a pirate (well, second to Betelgeuse).

While Halloween seems like it’s a ways away, there’s no time like the present to pick this year’s costume—especially if you’re planning on winning the costume contest this year. 

Regardless of whether you’re dressing up to go out for a Halloween-themed pub crawl or you’re taking part in an at-home virtual murder mystery party, if you want to dress up like a pirate there’s a costume out there for you. 

Best pirate costumes for Halloween

You can absolutely build your own plus size realistic pirate costume, but if you’re looking to save money (individual pieces can be really expensive, especially if they’re high quality) and time, you’ll want to take a look at these 11 costumes:

Pirate Wench

I don’t love that this is called the Pirate Wench costume, but I didn’t name it so we’re going to go with it as-is. I do think the costume itself is pretty wicked.

The dress has an off-the-shoulder neckline with sleeves edged with elastic to give them shape, giving you a sexy double cold shoulder look. It also comes with a corset with dark red ribbon lace fed through it and a skull pattern. You can also use the buckle-straps on the corset to adjust the length in front.

You rope the swashbuckling costume all in together with a striped head tie. It’s the perfect modern depiction of the complex pirate you are. Due to the lack of shoulders, you might want to skip the office with this bad boy, but it’s perfect for the bar after work.

Brazen Buccaneer

If you’re looking for a more modern plus size Caribbean pirate costume, then the Brazen Buccaneer is for you.

This is one for the ladies who prefer pants over dresses and want a more modest but fun look. While it’s a bit boobsy and features cold shoulders, your legs are covered, and there are three-quarter-length sleeves. The vest that’s attached to the shirt might help make it work appropriate due to the straps, but you might want to double-check with your boss.

This costume comes with striped cropped pants, the pirate-themed blouse has a faux-suede vest that’s attached to it. You also get a belt, hip sash, headscarf, and hat with it. Don’t forget to pair it with your favorite tall boots to make it a full outfit.

Pirate Lady

While pirates are often known for their bad hygiene and gross teeth, you can start changing opinions this Halloween with the plus size Pirate Lady costume.

Now, this isn’t my favorite costume because it looks a little plasticy, but it’s perfect if you’re planning a night out that might include beer spillage and sloppy bar food. You probably won’t be winning any costume parties with this one but it does come fit with the vest, dress, and headband.

The dress has black and red vertical stripes that give you a little bit of definition. Paired with the brown lace-up vest that has gold trim, and a white ruffled-sleeve two-toned top, you’re bound to shiver some timbers this holiday (if that’s a thing people would do). Don’t forget to throw on your black and red striped headband to complete the costume.

Wicked Wench Costume

If you’re looking to dress up like a higher-class wench (not my words), the Wicked Wench womens pirate costume. This costume is just the dress, so you’ll have to pull your own boots out of your closet.

This dress is made of a polyester knit with stretch velvet, machine lace, and satin jacquard fabrics. There’s a back zipper that makes it easy to get in and out of. The skirt has an asymmetrical hemline with burgundy velvet panniers at the waist—the dress is styled as a skirt and corset over a peasant blouse.

It does not come with the pirate hat, you’ll have to get that yourself. But if you’re ready to be the finest, sassy pirate at the party, this might just be what you need. 

Queen of the High Seas

While sailing the seven seas might not be your typical career choice these days, there’s no reason why you can’t play the Queen of the High Seas for an evening. 

Made of polyester, this costume has an off-the-shoulder peasant blouse-vest combination with elastic at the cuffs to keep everything in place. You pair the top with a black-and-red asymmetrical jagged-hemmed skirt. 

Not only do you get the skirt and top, but the belt and headscarf come in tow so you can put the whole outfit together. Playing by the rules simply doesn’t have to be your thing this Halloween, not while you’re in your pirate persona.

Deluxe Pirate Wench

There are a lot of “wenches” on this list, so my apologies in advance. But if you’re looking for a more conservative get-up, the Deluxe Pirate Wench is the plus size costume for you. 

This is a full-length costume, so if you’re somewhere colder it might be the best option for you. Made of a combination of polyester satin, crushed velvet, faux leather, and tulle. The costume comes with the dress, vest, petticoat, sash, bandana, and choker—perfect for making it as a successful pirate (at least for a night).

What I like best about this particular costume is the fact that if you’re outside in a colder environment, it’s easy to hide a pair of leggings underneath.

Caribbean Pirate

If you’re in a really cold environment, the Caribbean Pirate plus size costume is a great option, due to its full-coverage options.

This outfit is made of a combination of polyester knit, poplin, faux suede, and cotton muslin. You get a jacket, vest, and shirt combination, pants, belt, hat, and boot covers. You’ll look like a full-fledged buccaneer-turned-pirate with this head-to-toe pirate get-up.

There’s no way you’ll get lost at sea in this get-up.

Fearless Pirate

If you want to sex it up a bit, the Fearless Pirate costume can help you do just that.

While you’ll need to pick out your own black leggings to go with this get-up, it comes with a jacket, corset, waist sash, shoulder belt, scarf, and hat. This outfit is made of a combination of polyester tweed, brocade, and faux suede fabrics. The corset features an elastic black panel with a separating zipper which makes it easier to get on and off.

I like that the costume jacket for this can be repurposed if you’re cosplaying or simply want a steampunk-inspired jacket to have on hand. Also, the belt has three loops for toy pistols—though you’ll have to bring your own. 

Captain Hook

I’m not going to like, but I love the Captain Hook outfit—though I’d prefer it if the images had plus size women. Regardless, if you’re looking for something classic, cute, and full of piratey goodness, then this is what you’re looking for.

With sizes up to 4X, this costume could be a dream for the right fat fashionista. While you’ll need to pick up your own pair of black Ponte pants (or leggings), you’ll be set with the red jacket with gold braid edging and matching hat. And you won’t want to forget the boot tops that come with them.

The downside to this pirate costume is that you’ll need to pick out your own top. But don’t worry too much about it, the neck scarf comes with it, and the jacket has the sleeve ends attached. Whether you’re taking it to capture Neverland or simply want to be the talk of the party, this is the outfit you want.

Captivating Pirate

I LOVE the Captivating Pirate costume for plus size women, despite the fact that it doesn’t have any full-figured women in the images. It reminds me of the scene from one of the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland films where she’s standing on the dock.

This ivory pirate outfit comes fit with a jacket, skirt, petticoat, neck scarf, shoulder belt, and hat. And the pieces are perfect to be used together, but can be used separately for a different costume next year. 

This is the perfect plus size pirate costume if you’re looking for something a little girlier. This tiered skirt has an asymmetrical hemline that’s longer in the back. Paired with the perfect heeled boots, this costume can put you on top of the rest.

Pretty Pirate Captain

I’m not sure if “pretty” is how I would describe this outfit, but Pretty Pirate Captain it is. If you’re looking for a classic captain’s outfit this is the one for you.

This outfit is a combination of faux leather, polyester knit, and gauze. If you’re ready to hoist the main flag, you’ll need this plus size pirate costume to go with it. You get a jacket, shirt, plants, hat, scarf, belt, and sash.

It features a faux leather jacket that hits at about your knees and a matching captain’s hat. The blue-grey knit pants have an elastic waistband and cuffs, and a cream gauze pullover blouse that has an elastic waist and ruffled v-neckline. Pair it with your favorite heels and rule the seas.
