Hey friend! Are you looking for plus size pride outfits for Pride 2023? Then you are in the right spot!! As a VIP Member of the LGBT community (jokes), I love planning pride outfits — and this year, I hope to go to MULTIPLE pride months!

In the past, I’ve usually attended, minimum, 3 pride weekends around the USA. This year, I’m definitely planning on attending Salt Lake Pride, volunteering for Under the Umbrella Bookstore! I also may head out to Atlanta for their Pride in the fall – and I’d love to travel to attend a Pride internationally, like in, say Europe – thinking of Barcelona, Spain, or London, England!

This blog post is all about plus size pride outfits!

Plus Size Pride Outfits

Because gender expression can vary wildly in the LGBT community, I did my best to share plus size pride outfits for a variety of gender expressions.

I’ve also noted brands that people who love a specific aesthetic may love, and I’ve also linked to helpful blog posts.

Before we get going, I wanted to share 3 of my best tips for plus size pride outfits:

  1. PLAN FOR HOT WEATHER (CHUB RUB): In most areas of the country, pride takes place in June (some Prides, like Atlanta Pride, take place later), and it is HOT. Being hot and sweaty can lead to chub rub, which is why I recommend mesh t-shirts, spray bottles (or squirt guns!) to cool down, along with wearing BIKE SHORTS with everything. I adore my blue bike shorts from YITTY!
  2. FANNY PACKS! I think carrying around backpacks and purses is SO ANNOYING. I really recommend getting a fun plus size fanny pack for Pride.
  3. SUN HATS! Having a big hat that’s lightweight to keep the sun out of your eyes is CLUTCH. I recommend this sun hat from BAGGU. My bestie, E, got this first — and after seeing it IRL I immediately went and bought one, lol!

All right! Let’s get started!!

First – a question – Do you want to be “On Theme”?

Where to buy plus size pride outfits

The first thing you’ll have to decide is whether or not you want to dress “on theme.”  Put another way, “Do you want rainbows or nah?”  This blog post will be for the “Rainbow Brigade,” and I just published this post for the folks who wanna go FULL RAINBOW for pride, lol.

If you want to keep it casual, check out this roundup of Pride tees.

Pride Accessories – My Tips

If you want to be even MORE casual, you can go with rainbow accessories with a more fun (read: skimpy) outfit! There’s no point in buying a fun pride outfit if you’re only gonna wear it once!

Remember: Gender is a social construct, so wear what YOU want!  I’ve included items from both “men’s” and “women’s” sections below!!
