Clothing for women of a certain age, and rounded body  curves, and short frame:

So, I went shopping today. Lots of pretty clothes, lots of lovely colors: none of them fit me.

Do I get a tailor to make me clothes? I’m looking for holiday dresses. I can find separates and “low rise” pants that fit....but no dresses with a fitted waist.

I have been to “petite” stores, but so far, have not found things that “fit” my style. They tend to be preppy or traditional. I have been to a store that sizes: 1 (average/small woman, 2(average woman with breasts and hips, 3(overweight, or very curvy woman)....but they are not made for my short-waisted frame, and do not have dresses, generally.

What happens is I just do not shop for dresses, but make myself happy with separates. But I have lost 20 lbs AND want a dress to dance in.

I am in a quandry....not sure what step to make next.
