Okay, ladies, it’s time for a reality check. When was the last time you updated your style? When was the last time you really looked in a mirror and noticed how your body has changed over time? If you haven’t reassessed your look since you were a teenager, then it’s past time you modified your fashion style.

Body Changes

It’s a fact (although one we hate to admit): our bodies change as we age. Various factors, such as giving birth, hormonal imbalance, activity level and metabolic rate, all combine to give us a figure we’ve never seen before.

It doesn’t matter if you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s or beyond, we will never again have the same shape we used to enjoy when we were in high school with nary an effort on our part. Things move around; that’s just life!

What Are You Wearing?

Are you still shopping for clothing in the junior department? Clothing manufacturers make pieces that fit “typical” body styles for particular ages. You may have noticed that kids’ clothes are cut fairly straight; that’s because young girls rarely have curves. Garments sized for juniors (teens to very early 20s) reflect a figure that is smaller and slender with curves that are still developing. The fit is tighter and the cut is straighter. Women’s or Misses clothing accommodates a more curvaceous figure with a generous cut for thicker middles, hips and thighs.

If you are carrying a bit of extra weight in your bust line, abdomen and hips, or things have shifted, then you will need to opt for clothes in the Misses section. Note: Women’s clothing is very similar but usually styled for older ladies.

If you continue to shop in the juniors department, you are bound to find that those tight, low-waisted jeans give you severe muffin top and the buttons on your shirt are likely to strain while the fabric emphasizes the bulges around the band of your bra. Not a good look!
