- Since when did it become someone else issue about what another person wears? Honestly, there are things I don't think some should wear BUT it is THEIR CHOICE. It is better to worry about correcting yourself than others. After all, we all make errors in life.
To all "girls of the 60"s"
- I say this to all girls of the 1960's: When I was young, I hated seeing older women trying to look young (colored hair, pointed nipple bras, tight bluejeans, etc). Yeah, it was so easy to be critical of these aging ladies. Now, I'm 60 and my goodness, I want to look as good as I can. I feel like I am in the best years of my life! IF that means wearing my hair long, not dressing like my mother, and wearing a little makeup, I'm going to do it, and I encourage all women to do the same. We only live once, do it at your best!

I feel good!
- what's comfortable; what's neat what YOU KNOW is appropriate attire.

- Firstly a confident woman is one who wears what she wants at any age! My fiancee who is 30 yrs junior to me would agree. No I don't support him & what is good for a man (marrying younger) is good enough for a woman! I'm not marrying his age. If he is old enough to vote, die in war for us then he's old enough to marry me! Reason I'm stating this is in a so called time of women,s liberation, so many women tend to be the worst judges of other women! I'm constantly told to dress more revealing but I dress in what I feel comfortable. Casual or classy but never overstated! Must look okay. Happened to get talking to a 20 something male while at his work about my upcoming marriage who stated to me! If it doesn't work with your fiancee, look me up, as he felt age has nothing to do with a thing! He was gorgeous! Confidence & being tasteful can be very flattering. Just find what suits your style best without surrender & do stretch & work out! Its your life! Live it to your fullest!

- I've seen some scary outfits on women (and men) from 18-70. I will continue to let my hair grow down to my tushie if I want and I'll wear whatever I think looks good. At least until my 30 year old daughter says, "You are not leaving the house in that." But she's been saying that ever since she could talk...

- I think women who have v.chubby thighs &/or hips or "hub-cap" knees shouldn't wear shorts. I have all 3 & I don't. If it's hot out I wear cropped pants or a flowing skirt(not a mini) in a summery color or pattern instead

- Life is short!!! Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Impress yourself, not others. Women can be beautiful at any age and look good. We are not living in the dark ages anymore.

leave them alone
- Whatever makes people feel good about themselves is good with me! Doesn't matter the age - I don't understand hanging pants, but if they think they look good, why is it my business? Same with fashion for older people - why is it anyone's business but their own? Bottom line - wear what you feel good in, and strut it! Everyone else - try some tolerance or just mind your own business.

- I am a short woman who has gained and lost weight a number of times. I finally realized I had a gluten intolerance and now I am a size I can maintain and shop for. It's no longer a 3 or a 5 but it's the body shape I like-give or take a few pounds. I have been intimidated by labels in the past but no more. Now that I see the latest styles I do most of my shopping at the local thriftshop.I believe a woman should wear what makes her feel good and what looks good on her, regardless of what size the label says or what size she is. Recently my mother found out she is a bigger bra size than she thought and what a difference it made. She actually tried on clothes and liked it, which is terrific because she moans and groans when I suggest she buy something new and try it on first. I once heard you should dress to accentuate your best body part but do it tastefully. Leave something to the imagination.Good advice?

- Any outfit, ponytail or no, that matches a child's outfit. When a grown woman wears what her child is wearing, even the do.......I feel so embarassed for her.

- My wife and I are over 80 years old; she can wear anything; dress, jeans. She looks great because she is not overweight and is very, very well groomed. I wear jeans. We live in a very casual community.

grown woman should not wear
- Words on her backside. For example, "Princess, Bootylicious," and others. Coincidentally, many of the ladies who wear these should sport a "WIDE LOAD" sign and have back up warning.
WHY NOT PANTYHOSE?
- "Guest Davy" thinks pantyhose look "silly" in the summer. If I wear shoes without pantyhose, it rubs my skin raw. Because I don't have varicose or spider veins I could get along without needing pantyhose for camouflage but I need them for comfort. Women who have cellulite or varicose veins or spider veins--regardless of what age they are--need and deserve to wear pantyhose as well as those who choose to do so for comfort. I think the misconception is silly that wearing pantyhose is silly!

- I am 61, I am told I look younger, but it is diffulft to find appropriate stylish clothes, when the fashion industry is so youth centered. What I hate is an older women got in time warp, like bee- hive hair dos. Makes me think, (where were you in 1962)

who sets these rules
- And at what age is a woman older? Some women wear clunky shoes because they have bad backs and can no longer wear heels. When you get old enough, you'll realize it's about comfort and not what others think. It's not laziness. And when are you going to do a topic on what younger women wear? There's plenty of criticism to go around in all ages, even 14 year olds looking like wh......s.
