Time to smarten up your look at the menopause ...

Does your wardrobe need some attention? Do you want to dress fashionably without looking like mutton dressed as lamb? If so, it’s time to give yourself a menopause makeover – choosing clothes that flatter your body shape and help you dress to impress.

In the Summer 2010 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, image consultant Sue Donnelly has some advice for women who want to improve their appearance at the menopause. She has tips on choosing the correct size, shape and cut for your body, co-ordinating your colours, layering your clothes (to ease hot flushes) and choosing the right make-up.

“As you get older, your body shape changes and some women find it more difficult to dress in the latest styles,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “You can buy clothes to flatter all shapes and sizes, but need to know how to wear them. Even basic things like your underwear and posture can make a big difference to how you appear to other people.”

The Menopause Exchange is completely independent – it’s not sponsored by any companies and is funded purely by subscriptions from individuals and healthcare professionals. Other articles in the Summer 2010 issue include benefits and risks of HRT, acupuncture at the menopause and dealing with depression.
