Today on my blog, I’m sharing where to shop for plus size Victorian costumes! Finding plus size period costumes can be quite frustrating online, so I’ve gone ahead and done a TON of research, gathering up all of the plus size costume options I can find!

Plus Size Victorian Costumes

In this blog post, I’ve shared a number of plus size Victorian costumes, from plus size Victorian day dresses to ballgowns to costumes that would work if you’d like to be a vampire from the Victorian era for a costume party!

Buuuuut, before we dive in — I want to be sure YOU know all of your options. The Victorian Era spans just over 60 years, from 1837 to 1901. Because of this, there are a number of different styles of Victorian dress. In addition, the “Victorian Era” in the USA looks a bit different (think Gone with The Wind), so if you’re looking for a plus size Victorian costume for a specific purpose (ex: a theatrical performance, reenactment, etc), be sure you understand what style lines you’re looking for — and what country!!

All right, let’s get started!

Quick Note: Most plus size Victorian costumes in this roundup are NOT shown on plus size models. This is super annoying! If any costumers are reading this, I’d love to model your costumes so plus size babes can see what we look like!! To help matters, I’ve also included the maximum measurements for each brand, so you know where to go!

Plus Size Victorian Costumes – Recollections Dresses

I first found Recollections Dresses through an Instagram ad, and I’ve been following this brand ever since! They have a truly ASTOUNDING number of plus size Victorian costumes — many of which aren’t pictured here!

From the brand: “We specialize in Victorian (including Civil War, Old West and Pioneer) and Edwardian era designs.”

I’d love to see Recollections Dresses use plus size models for their plus size Victorian dress customers, and I’d love to help model the dresses!

Plus Size Victorian Costumes – Twirling Dresses

Okay, first up on my guide to plus size Victorian costumes, we have Twirling Dresses! This brand is located in the United Kingdom, with just under 100 sales. I put them first in my roundup because I appreciate that the dresses shown online aren’t on a straight-size model, making it easier for plus size folks to see themselves in the costumes!

  • Sizing Info: Up to a 3X, which is a waist measurement of 43 inches

Plus Size Victorian Costumes – Dress Art Mystery

Next up on my plus size Victorian costume round up is Dress Art Mystery! This Ukrainian company makes reproductions from famous costumes in period dramas and movies, as well as their own work! Unfortunately, this brand charges plus size customers quite a bit more for plus size Victorian costumes, which is not okay in my book.

That said, there are not a lot of options for plus size Victorian costumes, so I wanted to be sure to make you aware of this option! This brand has almost 1,800 sales at time of publishing.

From the brand: “If you’d like to order a custom dress, please, contact us to discuss details and processing time. Thank you!”

  • Sizing Info: This company does not have a maximum listed on their size chart, so I would message the maker with your measurements to see what options they have <3
