    Shopping to me is retail therapy and an over 50 shop would be so depressing, curious now to know what they stock.

    I also think the idea of an over 50s shop is depressing, but the only one I know of that sells clothes in that area I would say is Bon Marche. Don't know of any others. I am over 50 and use Primark and Asda.

    I think I know the one the OP is on about.

    Isn't Linda Barron the spokeswoman?

    I think it's called ISME.

    The OP said it was a high street chain that closed down and has re-opened.

    I think ISME is just an on-line/catalogue 'shop'.

    I agree with some of the other posters - I'm a fair bit over 50 but I wouldn't go into a shop selling clothes solely for over 50's.

    But then again, I still wear my Doc Mart's. :rotfl:

    I'm 64 and I don't want to wear clothes designed for the over fifties. I like charity shops, and sports shops. :D
    I love skip diving.

    As a nonstandard size or shape, I cordially loathe clothes shopping & the idea of a shop "for women over 50" would have me window shopping in bemused horror.

    I'd rather eat my stilletos than enter a clothes shop for women over 50. Helen Mirren agrees with me!

    I wouldn't want to shop somewhere specifically for my age any more than I would from similarly themed catalogues. I am 62 and like to think I have enough experience of what suits me to be able to select from a variety of sources including chains and charity shops. I think I look like I know what I am doing.

    In case this of any use, my friend has an online swimwear store (specialising in D+ cups) and beachwear (all sizes) which has an all-year round discount code for students and for 50+. The 50+ code is BEACH2014 and it gets 20% off at checkout. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to put a link to the store, but the name is Airy Mary.

    Generally I find that most online clothes stores are selling at around 20% discount all year round, but they're doing it discreetly through voucher codes. It's worth searching online before you buy (for example type 'voucher code GAP'). Why pay full price if you don't have to?
