Women's Pirate Fancy Dress
Women's pirate fancy dress costumes are ideal for themed parties, hen do's, birthdays, festivals, parades and other events where dressing up is necessary or appropriate.
Pirate outfits come in many different shapes, sizes, colours and styles with popular brands including Rubie's, Leg Avenue and California Costume Collections. Unbranded costumes and fancy dress accessories are also available in a variety of designs.
Complete Pirate Outfits
Complete pirate costumes are made up of numerous items that work together to ensure you look and feel like a swashbuckling sea villain. Costume sets differ, but often include a pull-on dress with belt detailing, stripy leggings, a headscarf, hip sash and an eye patch. Dresses can be long or short and are made from different materials such as polyester, velvet and lace. Colours can range from bright red to black and white.
As well as lady's buccaneer outfits, you'll also find tavern wench fancy dress costumes within the pirate range. These typically consist of a long skirt, blouse top and a lace-up corset. While one size fits all, costumes usually have elasticated waistbands, other dresses, skirts and culottes are available in specific women's dress sizes only.
Most pirate outfits feature ruffled sleeves, sequins and gems as well as double-layered skirts/dresses with adjustable lengths and a zig-zag style hem.
Pirate Hats and Accessories
What would a pirate outfit be without some kind of elaborate headwear? Pirate hats come in many different styles and help to complete a fancy dress outfit with ease. From captain of the ship hats which include a brightly-coloured feather to fur-trimmed bicorn, Napoleon-style hats, there's headwear to compliment all seafaring attire.
While some hats are oversized and feature notorious imagery such as the instantly recognisable skull and crossbones design, smaller hats such as the mini tricorn offer a more feminine approach and can be elegantly secured into place using hair grips.
Other pirate-themed accessories include toy swords , jewellery and high-heeled boots, which tend to work particularly well with the shorter, sassier dresses.
Plus Size Pirate Costumes
Plus size pirate costumes usually come in specific dress sizes making it easy to find something to suit your body shape. They can also be listed as XL (which is typically a size 16-18 depending on the brand), XXL (which is usually an 18-20) or a XXXL (which is roughly a size 20-22). Many outfits cater for women of up to a size 30 and feature everything you need to become a siren of the sea or a bar wench.
