3/4 length sleeves are flattering and can knock off a few years

I find shrugs that tie under the bust with either 3/4 or long sleeves can also make you look a bit younger.

Some cardigans can age you (not all though !)choose carefully.

Now something that is not a fashion tip but something that makes me mad.

Why are nearly every clothing catalogues geared for the size 14 and up ?

Not all us golden oldies are fatties. I am a size 8 and although I can get clothing in that size, I really have to search. Yes, ebay comes to the rescue, but it is nice sometimes to be able to get small sizes in more high street stores.

If I had Mary Portas's money I would open a store with skinnies in mind and stock flattering styles for the more mature lady like me.

3/4 sleeves and jc Penney
by: Anonymous

On the jc penny's site you can make many choices on the left side selection site and go straight to 3/4 sleeves. No, I don't work for them, my more fashionable than me little sister told me about this.

3/4 lenth sleeves
by: Anonymous

I wish they would have more 3/4 length sleeves and dresses a bit below the knee. My waist is larger than what it was years ago but my legs
are still thin. It is difficult to find flattering slax. I stick to jean materials mostly
as it holds my tummy in a bit. These shape enhancing things are too hot for me! Just because
I am 70 I don't want to look dowdy.

American or English?
by: Anonymous

Is this Anti Aging articles based in the U.S.A. I should know really as it ends in dot com !

Of course if this is the case, then British sizes are different from American ones. I am a standard size 8, which is quite small. I have a 33" bust, 29" waist and 36" hips.

I curse most adverts over in Britain as everything is geared for the larger lady and we are not all fatties !! Nearly Every mail order catalogue here in England is from size 14 and up. Makes me mad. Perhaps somebody can enlighten me as to what American size it is that would relate to my measurements that I mention above. I like American fashion and would like to perhaps buy something on Ebay from somebody in the States. Hope to hear from you.

Reply: Yes it is a USA site. Thanks for our comment.
