It's one of the greatest things about being over 50; you stop caring what other people think about your clothes.
I don't care how old you are you should never worry yourself about what others think. I have never cared and will never care. If I am comfy leave me be.

I don't want to look frumy all the time either but don't judge me by me style. I don't want the best money can buy just to make me look like others. That's what makes me, me.

I didn't realize they made lei in plus size? I wear stretch pants around the house, and my 10 yr. Old granddaughter told me'Nana, those are not pants, I don't know what they are, but they're not pants.
My big complaint is not being able to find jeans that fit around the waist, but look like elephant pants on my legs and thighs. I've even tried mens jeans. Yes, when I'm out and about, I see huge women in jeans that look like they were poured into them, and they look so good!!! Anyone else have this problem?

The LEI I wear are actually juniors but at my heaviest which was 226lbs (I am only 5'1") I could wear a size 17 in LEI Juniors. Even though they are juniors they have neat designs and stuff on the pockets but they arent overwhelming and they arent "childish" looking.

Oh wow!! Thank you! I'll have to check it out. I'm 5'2" and weigh 207, I bet I can wear a 17 as well. The closest I have ever come to having tight fitting jeans is some maternity jeans from Walmart. But now, I'm even bigger. It's really hard to lose weight when you mostly just sit home, and there's nothing to do but read, watch movies, and eat, eat, eat. It makes me hate myself so much, I spent a week at my daughters, and had the best time grooming, bathing, and feeding her horses. I hardly thought about food. I'm having a really hard time today because my feet and legs have been killing me all day. I used to could cheer myself up by shopping, but my family doesn't think it's safe for me to drive anymore, I have a fractured neck, and can't turn my head to either side or look behind me. I would love to go to TSC tomorrow, just to look around.
Maybe trying those jeans on would put me in a better mood.

I've ended up accidentally wearing leggings (coming straight from work and wearing them with a dress), but they turned out really pleasant to ride in! I prefer it now. I just wear thicker black ones so you can't see my undies and there's a little bit of support in there ;)

I really don't care what others think about how I look...I just like to feel pretty sometimes I guess. And that can be hard when all that fits is "Just-My-Size" stretch denim with an elastic waist. Now that I'm a little more fit, I can handle some button/zipper denim and it's a nice change. My boots are adorable but it's so dusty here you can't really see them due to them being so dirty. But I think it's fun to wear cute stuff. Kinda how some people feel more "put together" in pretty undergarments, even though no one can see them and no one cares.

I've made my own stretchy type panta from a patteen, and now that Im chunky AND 8 weeks pregnant, I could give a rats butt if people look down on me for wearing em!! Its also like 100+ all the time since we moved here so yeah.

And ot, but 2nd best thing about pregnancy is breastfeeding off all those pounds....

Let's back that statement up to 45...I don't care what people think ...I wear jeans, lace up ropers, t-shirt, and a baseball cap. I have always bought men's jeans, they fit better, they aren't as tight around the waist, and give the leg length I need so I don't feel like I have camel toe or are waiting for a flood.
