We are all looking for bargains however it is wise to look for items that are affordable, rather than those that could just be considered ‘cheap’.

Women’s clothing and shoes are among those things we buy, that should not be just cheap low-quality bargains. When it comes to apparel, cheap tends to mean it will wear out quickly and that is definitely not a bargain.

Shopping at the discount or outlet malls can result in some terrific bargains in up to date designer clothing if you know where to look.

Many of the major brands have their own outlet centers around the world. They offer huge discounts and a large selection from which to choose, in everything from clothing to appliances, and even furniture.

When shopping for women’s sizes in clothing over the Internet, you must carefully measure yourself and look at their sizing charts for the correct fit. Some brands tend to have smaller sizes than others, so size charts can be very useful.

Clothing comes in a wide variety of colors and materials. Leather, one hundred percent cotton, polyester, cotton and polyester blends, nylon, spandex, wool, denim, silk, jersey knit, and many other choices are available.

Some materials are a better choice for winters such as wool, leather, and denim while cotton, cotton blends, and nylon, may prove to be more comfortable in the warmer months of the year.

Style and appearance can run the gamut from casual (jeans and a t-shirt) to formal (evening gowns and shawls), and everything in between.

The recent trend toward ‘fast fashion’ is increasing in popularity and means clothing collections based on the very latest in fashion trends are brought out as fast as possible, so they can be sold while the styles are still hot and can be manufactured cheaply.

This concept has been used by several major manufacturers of clothing in recent years. This allows women to have their choice of up to the minute fashions, at fairly reasonable prices.

The work environment brings new requirements to the world of women’s fashion and style, combining an every day comfortable fit with dressier, more appealing designs.

Women, who choose to wear dresses or skirts and blouses daily, tend to prefer snug fitting materials that give them a ‘professional’ appearance instead of the more casual baggy sweatshirt and tight-fitting jeans that may be worn outside the office.

Women, who are active in sports, tend to wear sportswear such as sweatshirts, sweat pants, t-shirts, or tracksuits made from spandex, jersey, or double knit fabrics. They can be comfortably casual while they compete or train.

Gear Tips for Running Women

Running Clothes/Bra: I like my running clothes sporty–not funky, but this is obviously personal preference. A good running bra will go a long way…avoid cotton at all cost.

I have learned that running skirts are the most polarizing of all apparel items. However, if you love wearing a skirt, check out the Skirtchaser Race Series…looks like fun!

Running Shoes/Socks: Running shoes are so personal the only way to really find a pair is to go to a running store and keep trying them on until you find one that feels comfortable.

There are tons of shoe guides for different types of feet that are helpful in narrowing it all down. Learning about pronation and choosing a shoe that fits whether you have normal pronation, under pronation (or supination), or overpronation (or hyper-pronation) is key.

Runner’s World has a good article along with videos on pronation here. I have changed my shoes once. I alternate pairs of three for marathon training (it used to be two but with my foot issues, it’s now three).

Here’s Runner’s World’s “Spring 2020 Running Shoe Guide”. The Asics Gel Kayano 15’s are the “Editor’s Choice” winners and also the shoes I use. A few other quick tips:

  1. Measure your feet: As you age, your foot size may gradually change. Make sure salesperson measures your foot while you are standing up
  2. Shop later in the day: As the day goes on, your feet get slightly larger.
  3. Orthotics and socks: Wear socks you use and bring orthotics to store when trying out shoes. Find the “dry-wick” type of socks instead of cotton.
  4. Check wear: Most shoes give you between 300 – 500 miles of running. Keep track of the miles (see #24- Running Log). Replacing shoes can avoid unnecessary injuries. Check for wear on soles and inside the shoe as well.
  5. Local running store: Find a good store that specializes in running shoes. Bring in your old shoes when looking for new ones. A good running shoe specialist should be able to look at the old shoe and note the wear/fit when choosing a proper new shoe. As about return policy, many stores will let you run in the shoes and return them if they cause problems. Once you’ve found the shoes that work for you, you may be able to find the shoes again on-line at places like Runners Warehouse (bold pace readers get 15% off), Overstock, or Holabird Sports.
  6. Break in the shoe: Don’t wear a new shoe to a marathon, be sure you have had time to break it in. However, when buying a new shoe, it should feel good when you are trying it on.
  7. Thumb-width: Have a thumb width between the end of your longest toe and the end of the shoe. I wear a 1/2 size bigger to make sure I have room in the toe box.
  8. Get medical advice: If you have a persistent problem with your feet, get the advice of a medical professional. Believe me, waiting for a foot to heal can be agonizing. Don’t make it take any longer by waiting to get help.
