Just to reflect what your other customers have said....
I have tried for years to find clothing that would suit my mother's size and taste.
A friend phoned me to say that she had come across your website. After printing out the choice of dresses and cardigans, I showed mother before ordering.
Mother will be 100 years old this May and she now has two of your lovely dresses and a cardigan to wear; perfect fit and satisfaction.
She is so pleased with them and says that she will be wearing one of them on her birthday!
As I am her only son, it is really nice that I have been so fortunate to have come across your excellent firm; with such a good choice for the older lady and with such excellent service.

I’m just writing to say I ordered three waistcoats for Mum well after your cut-off for Australia on 15 December and at 4.00 Christmas Eve, the courier came and there was my order! Absolutely marvellous, thank you.
I’m so relieved to have come across your website, as I’ve previously said – there’s nothing here for the older lady (or anyone over 50 really!).

Dear Rival Clothing,
Thank you so much, I ordered a dress for my Nanna last week and it
arrived yesterday and given as an early Christmas gift today. I think
its the best gift I have given her in a long time! After a search
amongst Australian sites I had failed to find the style of dress my
Nanna loves to wear until I finally stumbled on your site. I think -
for the first time in a while- I really saw a great joy on Nan's face
to actually receive a beautiful dress in an exact style she loves to
wear. Thanks for existing - its very very hard to find styles elderly
ladies feel great wearing in lovely materials that are yester-year but
A very happy customer

Dear Sir, I want to thank you, sincerely, and congratulate you on the excellent service I've received.
I sent my order in on 3rd November and the parcel arrived here on 14th November in perfect condition.
11 days to get to the Underside of Australia!!! That's amazing, considering the time needed in choosing the goods, packaging, shipping and the Australian postage which can be quite frustrating at times.
I studied the Testamonials and decided that with so many positive comments they can't all be wrong so I'll give it a go.
I'm thrilled with the dresses, which fit so comfortably, and the beautiful blue waistcoast that matches both dresses to perfection. I'm nearly 77 years old and all I want now is day-long comfort in pretty clothes to either work in or visit the shops - clothes that will be cool and look elegant and then be easy to care for. For many years I have not been able to find a shop that stocks clothes to fit me and I despaired of ever looking pretty and feminine again. I'm so glad that I found your Aladdin's Cave of garments and then had the courage to make the order. The fit and lengths of sleeves and hems are perfect - no 'alterations' needed at all and never before has this been the case with anything that I've bought. Even the shipping was reasonable and I now have two pretty dresses and a lovely waistcoat for less than AU$100 total.
I will have no hesitation whatever in ordering more clothes.
I'm now looking forward to dressing up, jewellery and all, and wearing my new dresses, and recommending your website to other nearly-elderly ladies. If my comments can encourage others to buy your garments I will be very glad because you are supplying a very-much needed area in the garment trade and I hope that you continue to do so.

My order arrived today & I am so very pleased with the purchase of the 3 dresses, 2 blouses and 1 pair of trousers. The quality of the garments are WONDERFUL & so beautifully finished, plus, the short size 12 dresses & trousers fit perfectly on my 4 ft 11' 8 stone 1 lb (115 lb) frame. I am so glad I found your great web site & I surely without hesitation will purchase from Rival Clothing again!

"Like other customers who have left testimonials, it is exactly the same here in Australia for clothing for the elderly. I am always hesitant to order online with clothing but came across your site and took a chance. Am I pleased I did! The two dresses I ordered for my 91-year-old Mum were perfect, the sizing was spot on and delivery was prompt. Mum loves the style and the colours and I am happy I found you, it has been like a never-ending search for the Holy Grail! You provide an excellent service and I will be very happy if my comments encourage other people overseas to order. I will certainly be back, thank you."

I just wanted to write and say how impressed I am with your service. We have trouble getting clothes for my Granny as very few places sell them these day. Your shop has given us a place to be able to choose from many products. The delivery was fast and efficient and we will definitely be using your service again.

Can I say how marvellous you are - I have struggled to buy dresses for my 83
year old mum for years- as you are right - the shirt style dress she likes and feels comfortable in is not available any more.
so when I found your website I was delighted and when her first dress arrived (in time for Christmas too) I was even more delighted. Thank you so much for filling this niche in the market - it is important for the elderly to be able to dress comfortably and my mum was so pleased to wear her new dress on Christmas day - a great boost for her self-esteem and it made me feel good to be able to buy her something that was just right - and I was able to show her the styles online and we have now ordered two more!!!!!
thank you soooooooo much Rival - brilliant service - keep going - you are a public service!

I ordered 3 dresses for my mum and then panicked because I thought that I had bought the wrong size. The dresses arrived today and they look lovely, very posh! I am sure that my mum will love them. Also they seem to be the correct size. Thank you for catering for elderly ladies as it is very difficult to find suitable clothes in the shops.

A big thank you to all at rival clothing,
Prompt delivery and sizes that are neither under or over sized.
I will definitely be buying clothes for my mother from you in the future.

I placed an order on Thursday 08 December in the afternoon and wanted to advise you the dresses arrived the following day I am absolutely delighted with the service and the quality and wanted to say a big thank you.
So much so, I decided to order two cardigans to match the dresses for my old Mum (92) today.
Jan Blakeley 10/12/11. Preston
Ordered a blouse a little after 9am yesterday, arrived just after 3pm today. Fantastic service & good quality. Many thanks. will certainly be encouraging my mother to have a look with me at your other goods in the new year
Christine Winnard 7/12/11 Oldham
Just a quick email to say thank you for dispatching my order so very quickly. I am highly delighted with the dresses I bought, they are really lovely and the elderly lady they were bought for was delighted with them.
thank you once again
I have received mums dresses today. I would like to say what prompt and efficient delivery it was. The dresses are perfect and fit her beautifully. I will definitely order from Rival Clothing again.
Linda McQuade 2/8/11
Thank you. The pink cardigan is lovely, as is the rest of our order. Mum loves the dresses - lovely patterns and colours, easy to dress herself and comfortable to wear. She is particularly fascinated by the beautiful buttons! I love the easy care, just pop in the washing machine and hang to dry!
Thank you again.

Thank you so much for the prompt delivery of the dresses I order for my mother. She is absolutely delighted with them and is now one very happy 97 year old lady!
Jo Reynolds . Guildford .Surrey 24/6/11
I had despaired of ever finding suitable dresses for my 93-year old mother. Nothing on the high street was suitable, either in style, size (5' 1", size 10/12 now) or price. Mum's tastes are, like many elderly ladies', very traditional, and she needs clothes which are easy to put on and fasten (and have pockets!).
So, it was a tremendous relief to find your website, and we have been very pleased with the three dresses we have ordered so far, in terms of fit, fastening, fabric and colour. We have also been impressed with your swift and helpful service.
With many thanks,

Hello,I just wanted to thank you very much indeed for the rapid delivery of the two dresses for my mother.To my utter amazement they are literally perfect for her,in quality,size,fit ,material and price!
Before my daughter found your website I was convinced we would not be able to obtain the clothes she wanted.
Very well done indeed and All the Best Wishes for the New Year.

I just wanted to say thank you for your prompt service. I ordered a dress on Monday and it was here on Tuesday. I have been looking for the exact style of dress for my 87 year old mother for sometime and your range fits the bill completely. The quality is excellent and it's nice to find two lengths offered. Thank you again.
