Depress Shopping

I am really depressed. I went shopping at the mall today looking for a new pants or jeans. I wanted just a nice casual cotton blend pants in black or brown. I couldn't find any that fit. I looked for jeans and that was worse yet. The regular sizes were too big and the petites were to small. By the time I found one to fit the hips it was too big around the waist. They are cut so low - way below waist. So if you have a little bit of a belly (you get the picture!). What is a woman to do? I know I am not a teenager anymore, far from it, BUT I don't want to dress like an elderly lady either yet. So in the meantime, I will just wear what I have.................When are the apparel companys doing to make sizes that fit the mature woman! We are out there too.............. What are your feelings about this subject? Maybe if we all get together and conplain loudly, they will hear us. All together now! I will say this - I saw alot of women my age wearing those jeans today that should not be wearing them..............Maybe I am one of them.

Yes - clothes shopping can be difficult. It seems to be hard to find "normal" clothes sometimes!

OH, I fully agree with you. I bought a pair of jeans not to long ago and it was horrible finding something that fit.

Just bought new jeans at Eddie Bauer. I've gotten my jeans there for years and pay very good money for them because they fit me. This time around I'm disappointed. I find I'm constantly pulling the behind up. I agree with you, the waistline keeps getting lower. I'm almost 50 and don't need to dress like my 20 year old daughters (who dress quite conservatively I might add.) Argh, I don't know what to do now. I'm frustrated right along with you!
