@mrsSonthebeach:  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.

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

@Bichon Frise:  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.

@Meowkers:  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’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.

@Meowkers:  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.

@mrsSonthebeach:  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. =/  )
