LOL body of boys? My body is in no way similar to a boys. I have hips and boobs. I don’t get my jeans in juniors but I do get some tops.

I do agree that the pants are cut for those who are thin without hips, but I think most of the tops are fine.

I agree, I think it’s mostly about style than about the section itself, or should be, anyways.
I made this thread because I was thinking about how much I love Rue 21 even though it’s really trendy lol. I would never buy something like this:
But I think this is damn cute with a nice sweater or jacket, and not too young:
Also agreed. I’m not super curvy but I do have a C cup chest and my coworkers don’t think I’m boyish looking and I still find jrs tops I like. Plus, teends are getting a lot curvier now and I’ve definitely seen my fair share of “well endowed” teens sporting obviously jr sized outfits

hmmmmm, I might have to hit them up the next time they have a sale. I’ve almost lost enough weight to move down a size, and have a potential shopping day lined up already….they are just on the complete opposite side of town as me, so I rarely get over there.
That and I’m short, but not quite petite – so petites are a little too short, but regular stuff is a bit long. And I’m too lazy to figure out where to go/figure out the cost to get stuff altered!

I wish there were more in between options as well 🙁 I just turned 25 a couple days ago but felt this way for the past 2 years.

I have to say…I still find myself in the Junior dept/stores. I definitely still shop at Forever 21 and the likes, but I’ve gotten really good at picking out things that do not look cheap or young. I am definitely on a tight budget these days, and I have an expensive style…so I have to be careful. I’m 26, 5’4 size 4 with boobs, so I have to make sure everything fits really well.

This! I’m all for accessorizing cute summer dresses/skirt( heels, flats, belt, neckace) and have some solid classics ( striped shirt) white pants, khaki shorts, etc.

I stopped shopping at forever 21 years ago because I don’t like bright colors, but I think this is sooo cute and not too young looking. (for the record, I’m short, so all the dresses that look “short” on these models pretty much go down to about just 1 inch above the knee, haha.)

I’m 35 and I often shop in the junior’s section but I like to think that I choose styles that are age/occasion/body type appropriate. I hope I am, anyway!

I still shop in juniors. I’m 26. The key is getting things that are age-appropriate. I find cute, trendy and classic pieces for cheap by doing this. Plus, junior stuff can tend to fit me a little better.

I think that there ARE places you can get stuff for the transitional age, it just gets a bit more difficult. I think that is why I mix and match between a variety of departments and stores…the stuff in the “misses” section is often nice enough shape-wise, and I do get the majority of my clothes from there now. It still kind of skeeves me out though that I can come to work and see a woman who is 55 wearing the SAME top as me from that section (likewise, I think I’d be mortified if I were wandering the mall and found myself in matching outfits with a 16-year old…yikes!). It has been a slow transition into the late 20’s/early 30’s, and I think one day it just hits you that you might look laughable in a certain top from the juniors section. That day is still kind of a sad one though! I completely agree about Target’s “Women’s” section, btw!! It really depends upon what store you are at!

i havent bought anything from the juniors section in a long, long time- im 24- but ill still walk through to scope out.
id just love to point out the fact that in juniors i’m alike a size 10-12-14/L-XL in any given piece of clothing, but when i move into misses i’m a 4-6-8/xs-s. sigh.

by that standard, *technically* I should have stopped shopping in the junior’s section before I turned 11, right around the time I was buying my first training bra, haha. ( It was actually really hard at 11 years old to find a dress to fit my size 9-11 bottom and size 2 top. =/ )
