Sellecting the Correct Costume Size
One of the hardest things to gauge when buying Halloween costumes online is what size to get. Sizing is especially important to consider the closer you get to Halloween as you might not have enough time to exchange your costume for the right size.
These tips should help you get the right size the first time.
- Probably the one thing that will help you most are reviews. If there are any reviews, pay attention to any sizing issues.
- For online stores that have a lenient return policy, you may be able to order two different sizes, keep the that fits better, and return the other one.
- In general one can say that a lot of costumes seem to run small, so ordering up is usually safe. Hopefully even if the costume does end up being a bit too large, it is should be easy enough to rake it in.
Renaissance Women's Costumes
I like these costumes very much, but like anything else quality varies. I have tried only to show those that have good rating and consistent sizing. So even though many tend to be sized smaller than regular, we know which ones are which.
Most are reasonable quality, and at the very least the best quality for what you pay.
Prices range from around $30 to about $120.
Fun World Costumes Funworld Deluxe Renaissance Lady
The Deluxe Renaissance Lady is an excellent costume that does not only come in regular sizes, but also well fitting plus sizes as well.
The quality of the materials is good for the price. It hangs well, with no fuzz on the velvet, and all the stitching is neat and done well.
In terms of fit, this one fits true to size, and might be even a drop loose. So you should buy the size you would normally buy. According to one reviewer, the arms may be on the tight side if you have larger than average arms. So you should be aware if you have thicker than average arms.
At just under $30, this is a great costume at a great price.
Green Renaissance Lady Adult Costume
The Green Renaissance Lady Adult Costume is another very reasonable priced costume. The quality of the materials used, and the stitching are good, the style is faltering and the sizing is true to size.
Some advice in wearing this garment comfortably is to wear an undershirt under it. Also, it is a bit on the warm side. So if it is Halloween, or another time you want to wear a warmer costume, this costume is for you.
Price ranges around $40, depending on size.
Adult Colonial Lady Costumes and Pilgrim Woman Costumes
Are always elegant and can be a nice, patriotic choice!
Far from looking boring or frumpy, I think the colonial costumes are flattering to most women whatever their size.
These are probably the easiest costumes just to buy without having to make any modifications at all. They have high necklines and longer sleeves as well as not being too form fitting.
So if you want the least amount of fuss, and still have a stylish, appealing costume to wear these make an excellent choice.

Charades Women's Colonial Lady
The Charades Women's Colonial Lady above is a very faltering dress, made in a beautiful blue and pretty white accents.
The sizing is on the small side, so you may need to order a size larger than your normal size.
Should also work well if you need to wear it when it is hot, as the material is thin.
Forum Novelties Women's Prairie Lady Costume
The Women's Prairie Lady Costume is a well-made costume, with beautiful stitching and a fully lined skirt with thin crinoline. Though it only comes in one size, the white belt that goes around it makes it adjustable to any figure. The belt helps cinch any issues that may occur with the excess fabric.
One thing of note mentioned by many reviewers is that it may arrive wrinkled. You may find you need access to a steamer to iron out the wrinkles.
Beware polyester and can not be ironed the usual way with a normal iron.

Modest Victorian Costumes
Victorian costumes are another option that tend to be modest just as is, though some do need a bit of modification to make them acceptable, here again like the Renaissance costumes, adding a dikie, a high-necked t0shirt or scarf is usually all you need to make them modest enough for most of us.
Modest Victorian Costumes
AvaLolita Elegant Blue Long Princess Sleeves Gothic Victorian Dress
This is a dress that is made not only as a simple costume for Halloween, but is made to be used for Cosplay or in Theater productions.
The quality of the material and how it is made up is, is so that it should last as long as it is looked after reasonably well.
Modest Fairy Costume Ideas
There are really no modest fairy costumes available, unless you don't mind going in as one of the Cinderella's fairy godmothers, but you could buy one of the princess costumes, add a pair of wings and a matching/contrasting long sleeved crew neck t-shirt and your ready to go.
I came up with two ideas for a fairy costume, one for a yellow fairy and another for a purple fairy. Hope this gets you going.
Purple Fairy Costume
Mix and match a princess costume with wings to get a fairy costume
You can start with any princess dress of a color that you like. A good one is this Rapunzel costume in purple.
This dress happens to be a shorter dress, but there are even more princess dresses that are longer.
I think the thinner dresses work better than the more heavy velvet dresses, but even these will work as long as you choose the correct wings to go with it.
After you have chosen the main dress you can add the next items.
To cover the cleavage you can either get a modesty panel or a thin t-shirt, for a dress with a wider neckline.
Next we can add a pair of wings for adults. You can select a similar color or go for a complimentary or neutral color that works well with the main costume dress.
There are many styles of wings, from those similar to the gossamer wings on the right to some that have a more feather look as well as satin or other material.
You can also make the wings if you like to sew or do DIY projects.

Women's Hobbit Costume
The Hobbit's are a pretty modest bunch, and their costumes are some of the best to dress in if you want an in character modest women's costume.
The hobbit women basically dress like renaissance or medieval peasants in earthy tones, including some brighter colors such as yellows, darker reds and greens,such as the ensemble on the right, with the addition of a cloak. They also tend towards curly hair, though this is not a must.
At the moment, before the release of The Hobbit movie release, there is no complete women's Hobbit costume, but you can rig up something for yourself either from things in your wardrobe, getting the separate pieces.
Gold Peasant Skirt
This is the basis for the costume, a plain peasant skirt works well for a Hobbit's women's outfit.
