Plus-Sized Costumes Are Big Business For Hefty Halloween Revelers

RONKONKOMA, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hefty Halloween revelers used to have a fat-chance in finding corpulent-sized costumes, but things are changing now that retailers are answering demands from an ever-expanding market.

That’s the word from Meredith Abraham, spokeswoman for, which sells costumes for women up to size 24 and for men up to jacket sizes of 52.

Abraham says, “Every year, the plus-sized category gets bigger and pun intended.”

In the past, Abraham says large-sized shoppers complained that there wasn’t enough variety for them including sexy costumes for women like French maid outfits.

Abraham says, “They tell us ‘Just because we’re big doesn’t mean we don’t like to dress sexy too.’”

Meredith says this year their Beer Keg and Wicked Jester outfits are going over big with big men, and the Ruby Pirate and Medusa costumes are popular with rotund female revelers.
