My 88-year-old mother needs new clothes. It is impossible to find clothes that fit her due to her shape. She has very narrow shoulders and gets much wider as you progress downwards to her waist and hip area and stomach. If I buy a blouse/tee that fits her narrow shoulders, it is like a sausage casing on her chest, abdomen and hips. If I get the garment to be big enough to fit across her abdomen and hips, the shoulders and area under the arms are huge!
Does anyone else have this problem? If so, are there particular brands that are designed to fit this "pear-shaped" body? She is only 5'3" tall and has a short torso which also makes fit more difficult. We recently took all her slacks/jeans to have them taken up in the waist and shortened because she had to buy a bigger size to accommodate her hips. I don't really want to have to alter her tops, too, which only adds to the purchase price.
