Our doors are closed, but you can still shop the site and call in your order at 207-563-6809. Locals can Save On Shipping with Porch Pickup!

We strive to make distance shopping a smooth and convenient experience! As every manufacturer (and even garment) can have a different cut, shape, or sizing chart, to help us ensure your perfect fit, please have your measurements ready if you think you may need assistance with sizing.

We’ve changed our hours. Lynne will be here 10-3, Monday thru Saturday to receive your phone orders or answer your questions. If no answer, she could be on the phone with someone, or briefly unavailable. Please leave a message after the beep, or reach out via e-mail at womenofsubstanceme@gmail.com. Thank you for your patience and kind encouragement during these most challenging times.
