This article presents the changes that occur with the body of the new elderly women and their relationship with clothing. It aims to investigate if these women can find on the market the right clothes for their needs and if ergonomic issues such as comfort, usability, safety and welfare are being considered. This study investigated women between 61-68 years of age through focus groups in order to obtain their impressions of the new elderly women through images of various models presented, encouraging discussions about the clothes, whether they were or not appropriate for the age of the users, what were their thoughts about the clothes and if they would use them. The results showed that the models found in the market are not meeting their changing needs, some clothes do not favor the current conformation of their body, such as sleeveless blouses, too tight or too short dresses, pants with very low waist, excessive fabric near the abdomen, shapes that generate discomfort, or fabrics and prints said “unfit” for their age.
