Anyway, having style is not about a certain age or simply buying everything off of the mannequin. By age 30, a woman should have an idea of what looks good on her body and should literally be able to shop anywhere.

There are many great stores for regular and plus-sized women...forget about age. Age is irrelevant. Cultivate a great sense of style and you won't need to worry about "mall stores". Check out the many style blogs or Pinterest for inspiration.

35 plus is considered middle aged.

Take a look at CJ Banks www.cjbanks.com I think every teacher I know gets a lot of clothes from this store. Good quality, and age appropriate - but not "trendy". There are CJBanks stores in some malls, but I shop mostly on-line.

Pendleton www.pendleton-usa.com has beautiful, nice quality clothing.

I also shop www.landsend.com and www.llbean.com Guess you know what my style is, now!

I've also purchased some clothing from Serengeti and have been pleased: www.serengeticatalog.com

Oh - I learned about www.eshakti.com on this forum. You can order the dresses custom fit to your exact size, whether you're plus or petite. I haven't ordered from yet, but I will!

Steinmart has an excellent Petites department and the prices are good. Macy's and Dillard's have a broad selection for many ages and body types. And Sak's is great for adult clothes, if you can afford it.

For those of you who are in the Midwest, the Von Mauer chain has good-quality products and excellent customer service. My SIL is still working at a demanding corporate job with a lot of public interaction in her sixties. She shops at Von Mauer and always looks stylish and age-appropriate. It helps that she is tall and slender and can wear high-fashion.

thanks Jukesgrrl - I've never seen a Steinmart (heard of them though) - Macy's only occasionally has 0 and only in I.N.C. Petite (overpriced Macy's brand and often trendy/odd LOL) - we don't have Dillards here either.

We have one of those here, new. Maybe I will go check it out.

I did see some nice things in Chicos. Big problem for me is that many of just the shirts in there were 80 bucks. After I saw that I just walked out the door. =/
