    Looking for a place to buy older womens clothes

    I am looking for a place to buy older woman clothes on web. They need to be reasonably price. Have found a few good things at Blair. But would like more choices. I would also like to know if anyone has every bought clothing from Appleseed's on line. And if so what is the quality of their clothing?

    Appleseeds usually have nice quality clothing but a bit pricey. Again it really depends on the garment. I have returned somethings because I didn't like the quality but other things were fine.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Bon Worth is for older women. But they use to much white and cutesy designs for tees.

    Have you tried Willow Ridge or Bedford Fair? I use Blair, too. The things I have purchased from Blair have great quality, while pricey.

    Bon Worth is in an outlet mall near me. I love their clothes, and I can buy pants that fit. I have had AppleSeeds before, but they run large.

    SarengetiCatalog.com has delectable clothing I would just love to have, if I could afford them. Just take a look and see and you will want them too.

    These all seem like good options. Thanks for asking the question. IT will help many of us.

    I love the Sarengeti Catalog, too, and their clothing. I am 78, so I guess I can be considered an older person. I buy a lot of my clothing at the Hamricks store. There are a lot of them in the South, and I love them.

    Me too, LOVE, LOVE but I wait for one of those lovely 70% off sales!! They just seem to fit a more mature figure without looking dowdy.

    I have bought Cold Water Creek clothes at JC Penny. I need new tops and need to check out Pennys again.

    I'm not an older women (well I don't THINK I am at least at 48) but I
    buy most of my clothes from Woman Within & Roman's they have decent
    prices and there ALWAYS seems to be some kind of sale going on.

    I like Boscov's. They're always having sales. Their store brand, Preswick and Moore, is decent quality.

    I buy lots from Haband and Woman Within. Both offer good quality at reasonable prices.

    I have ordered from Woman Within and was pleased with the merchandise and price. I will check them out again for an upcoming June wedding.

    I have another resource: www.shopnational.com. It's National Wholesale out of Lexington, NC. They send out frequent catalogs and you should be able to sign up for their mailing list at the website. I used to buy some of my Mom's clothes from them. They have a lot of basic things that are pretty nice. Their prices are along the same lines as Blair's.

    I've ordered things from most of the places mentioned above, too... Haband, Woman Within, Roamans, Boscov's, etc.

    Coldwater Creek, Talbots - when they have sales or clearances, you can find some excellent quality pieces at very affordable prices. I also L-O-V-E Stein Mart.....talk about highest quality at bargain pricing!!

    I love Bon worth, coldwater creek ( when on sale) Bon Worth is starting to do more than the white cutsie tops... Love the suits because you can get the top that fits right and then the bottom that fits right.

    Good Morning: I have ordered lots of things from www.deva.com. Their clothes are entirely of cotton and are extremely comfortable. Also www.vermontcountrystore. somewhat pricy but great quality.

    JC Penney is where I ordered most of my mother-in-laws clothes when she lived with us. Good quality and all of the basics.

    Draper and Draper has clothing suitable for more mature women. Pricey, but quality is very good. I have ordered from Appleseed too and had problems with sizing because I'm shorter in legs, but have long torso, so petites don't always work for me. Quality is good but very pricey. I also like The Tog Shop.
