Full Coverage to Sexy Women's Costume Variations
Every woman is different. No two women have the exact same idea on what looks good, and the most important think to keep in mind when selecting one of our women's Halloween costumes is to pick an outfit that's going to make you feel confident and comfortable. The last thing you want to choose is a costume that doesn't fit your own style. But don't worry, we're here to help!
We went ahead and put together this quick guide on how to choose the right amount of coverage for you. We've selected some great looks from our variety of costumes for women, from full coverage outfits to sexy costumes to give you some ideas how to make your look less revealing, or a little more daring, depending on what style fits your personality. And, as you will see, there are plenty of attractive options to fit your personal sense of fashion!
Full Coverage Flapper
If you don't feel like showing a lot of skin, then you don't have to! It's quite as simple as that. This full coverage flapper option makes for an easy way to look fashion forward without showing a lot of skin. The 1920's inspired dress uses dangling fringe along the bottom to make the skirt just a little bit longer than some of our other flapper costumes. The outfit also features short, fringed sleeves as opposed to many of the tank top or spaghetti-strap styles on our other women's costumes. This outfit is proof that you can get a cute look while still being modest, so you can feel comfortable and confident when you head out to the speakeasy.
Some Coverage Flapper
Maybe you're a little ambivalent about how modest you want to be? Obviously, you don't want to grab something that looks like it was hanging in your grandma's closet, but you also don't want to choose something that's a little too revealing. This women's flapper costume brings together the best of both worlds! It features a modest scoop neckline, along with a tank top style on top, all while upholding a sassy 1920's flapper style. It hints that you’re the type of woman who's got a good head on her shoulders, but also isn't afraid to get a little adventurous! It's perfect for any party where you want to keep it PG-13, but still don't want to compromise your curves.
This sexy flapper costume has flirty details for the girl who wants to be a little bit more adventurous with her style! It shows a bit more skin than some of our other options. The hem of the dress is shorter, stopping mid-thigh, and the intricate neckline is show-stopping. The spaghetti strap-style top has sequin accents, which help to create an alluring look. When you pair it with a set of fishnet tights, it all combines for a look inspired by the 1920's—a stunning way to dress for your adults only party!
Full Coverage Pirate
There are tons of Halloween costumes for women with swashbuckling savvy! Choosing the right one for you starts with evaluating just how much skin you want to show on your outing as a pirate. This first women's costume gives you a full coverage option, which has a floor-length skirt, and a three-quarter sleeve top. The bust boasts some lace along the neckline to add a classic and cute style, sure to help you get into character. The outfit helps you look ready to set sail across the high seas, all while letting keep a modest look. Of course, we recommend you pair this with a set of pirate boots to really kick your style into buccaneer mode.
Some Coverage Pirate
The next women's pirate costume option takes a step up to make for a slightly more revealing look. Although the ensemble keeps the same pirate style, it exchanges the high neckline bust for a tank style neckline. The exposed shoulders let you show off a tad more skin without going overboard, while the thigh-high leg slit lets you show as much, or as little leg as you like. The costume also uses buckle accents to create a slightly more adventurous ensemble, fit for any trip on the seven seas. It all combines for a look that's tame enough to wear to a casual costume party, but daring enough to have you feeling like the sexy swashbuckler that you are!
Now, if you want to be the kind of rowdy pirate lass that knows no bounds, then maybe you want a look that lets you command your curves to their full potential! We've got the perfect look for that too. This midriff pirate costume comes with a low-cut, sweetheart neckline for a bold look that will have you feeling ready to assume the role of captain. And one thing is for sure—this isn't your grandma's pirate outfit! The costume bares a couple inches of midriff, so it's much less modest than many of our other options. If you're looking to pillage and plunder at your next party, then a sexy pirate costume should help you feel fearless in the face of danger!
Full Coverage Red
This first style is a look that's totally grandma approved! The classic Little Red Riding Hood costume brings you all the classic fairytale features of the character in a cute style that works great for any occasion. The skirt hemline stops at the knee for a keen look that doesn't show off too much leg. The neckline offers full coverage, while the above the elbow sleeves make for a costume that's still perfectly cute, while putting a smile on grandma's face when you stroll up to her house in the woods! Just make sure to accessorize the ensemble with a basket full of goodies, since that's another thing that's 100% grandma approved.
Some Coverage Red
If you need a look that's still okay with grandma, but lets you show off a little extra skin, then why not give this cute Riding Hood costume a whirl? The outfit comes with an off-the-shoulder style top for a slightly less modest style. It also features some white, puffy sleeves to add the fairy tale character vibe. The skirt stops mid-thigh, so it's slightly flirty without showing off too much. We recommend pairing it with a cute petticoat underneath to give it a lively and bouncy style. Finally, the long, hooded cape adds a nice touch that we think both you and grandma can appreciate.
Okay, so maybe this Little Red Riding Hood costume isn't fully grandma approved. This one isn't so much for a hike through the woods as it is for an awesome night of partying with the wolf, since it boldly forgoes some of the more subtle details for something a little more ravishing. The halter top functions as a boosting corset, helping you control your curves. The top also features a daring sweetheart neckline and is completely sleeveless, which combines for a sultry look that will have you feeling like the most stylish woman to ever skip through the woods. The high cut skirt goes well with many of our petticoats, so we suggest adding one of those to your order if you plan on wearing this dress.

Deluxe Witch Costume
Is there anything more iconic than a witch during Halloween? Of course not!

We pulled out all the stops on this one, since it comes with an eerie black dress that conjures up the classic imagery of green-skinned witches brewing over a bubbling cauldron. And no witch can call herself a master of sorcery without wearing a long, pointy hat, which comes neatly packed with this exclusive costume.
Kansas Girl Dress
Gingham! What can we say? We just love that blue and white checkered pattern, which is what defines this Kansas Girl dress. The costume has a simple style that's quite simply a classic.

Just tie your hair into a single braid and practice your yodeling skills to get into character... and if you know how to use a lasso, all the better.
You don't have to be a superhero if you don’t want to be, girls can be villains just as well. One of the meanest villains that Batman ever faced had wild red hair, which gives you a great option to explore your evil side. With this costume, you should have no problem concocting a scheme or two.
