How To Disney Bound As A Plus-Sized Woman: Unleash Your Inner Princess with Confidence!

Incase you're unfamiliar with the term...allow me to explain!

Disney Bounding is the art of dressing in everyday clothes inspired by beloved Disney characters, and is a popular and magical way to show your love for all things Disney when visiting the Disney parks. Disney bounding came about because adults are not permitted to wear fancy dress costumes at Disney Parks for safety reasons, and so Disney Bounding allows adults to have fun with creating Disney inspired looks - cast members and guests alike are usually very familiar with Disney bounding, and it can create a great opportunity for conversation and fun interactions to enhance your visit.

As a Plus-sized woman I was nervous to embrace Disney bounding but honestly? After a few attempts, consider me obsessed! Its so much fun to put together outfits and see the reactions from characters in the parks, it really does add such a fun element to my trips and it makes for some wonderful photo opportunities too - even my kids, who are permitted to wear actual fancy dress costumes in the parks, love to get involved with a Disney bound!

Here are some of my own favourite Disney bounds from my own visits to the parks:

If Disney bounding is something you'd like to try, here are my tips:

1. Embrace Your Body and Dress for Comfort

First and foremost, remember that Disney bounding is all about self-expression and having fun. Embrace your beautiful body and dress in comfortable outfits that make you feel confident. Consider flowy dresses, stretchy leggings, or well-fitting jeans - whatever makes you feel good and, above all, comfortable! Choose fabrics that allow for easy movement throughout the day so you can fully enjoy your Disney adventure without feeling restricted.

2. Select Characters That Resonate with You 

When choosing characters to Disney bound as a plus-sized woman, opt for those you personally connect with or admire. Whether it's the elegance of Belle, the strength of Mulan, or the joy of Rapunzel, choose characters that resonate with your personality and style. Embrace their color schemes, iconic accessories, or signature details in your outfits to create a unique and personalized Disney bounding look. And remember, you don't need to stick with human characters - many people choose to Disney bound as all sorts of Disney favourites from animals like Goofy & Simba, to objects like Rug from Aladdin. I have even seen people Disney bound as rides or as the fireworks themselves! The limit truly does not exist.

3. Play with Colours, Patterns, and Accessories

Experimenting with colours, patterns, and accessories is key to capturing the essence of your chosen character. Incorporate Disney-inspired hues into your outfits, such as Cinderella blue, Snow White yellow, or Tinker Bell green. Mix and match patterns like polka dots, stripes, or floral prints that reflect the character's style. Enhance your Disney bounding look with accessories like themed jewellery, character-inspired handbags, or hair accessories. Let your creativity shine as you play with these elements to bring your character to life.

4. Focus on Signature Details 

To make your Disney bounding outfit truly stand out, pay attention to signature details that are iconic to your chosen character. These details can be as simple as incorporating a bow for Minnie Mouse, a rose accessory for Belle, or a tiara for Cinderella. Adding these small but significant touches will help people recognize and appreciate your Disney bounding efforts. Don't be afraid to get creative and find unique ways to incorporate these details into your overall look.

5. Confidence is Key! 

Above all, remember that confidence is the most important accessory for any Disney bounding outfit. Embrace your curves, showcase your style, and radiate the joy of being a Disney-loving plus-sized woman. You are beautiful, and your passion for Disney shines through your Disney bounding choices. Embrace the magical atmosphere of the Disney parks with your head held high and a smile that lights up the kingdom.

Disney bounding as a plus-sized woman is a delightful way to express your love for Disney and unleash your inner princess.  Embrace the magic, and let your Disney bounding adventures begin!
