Best Online Clothing Stores for Over 35’s That Don’t Suck
As a gal that is now in my forties, I still want to dress nice – and I’m not ready to start wearing drab clothing that will age me or make me look like a Nanna. I still wanna look cool as f*ck….
But I have found that I care about other qualities in clothing – such as fabric choices, fit and length. And I’m willing to pay more for select pieces that I know I will have forever. I do appreciate a lovely cotton jersey or organic bamboo because it is cool and it breathes and feels lovely on the skin – as when I was young I’d rock the polyester without a second thought.
I have parts of the body I’d rather hide (my Mummy Tummy and batwing arms) – and parts I’d love to show off (legs, boobs..). So I have chosen the following online stores carefully – places I would shop myself.

THE BEST JEANS IN THE WORLD!
These jeans are BEYOND AMAZING. They are so good they were featured on Oprah back in the day. The jeans are flattering for all figures – and are designed to make you appear two sizes smaller – and they really do! I personally have five pairs of these jeans – and although they were pretty pricey – OMFG they are worth it!
Their jeans contain a ‘tummy flattening panel’ and they also ‘lift your butt’. Just watch the sizing though – they are all sized in US sizing – not Australian! Worth every cent!
BEST JEANS FOR MUM’S WITH A TUMMY
Veronika Maine is renowned for its technical innovation and high-quality finishes. Timeless pieces that will last a lifetime. They also have a dress I’d kill for but it is $220 and my husband would seriously kill me if I spent that much on a dress! Very high-quality fabrics and styles.
