Should you lose the bikini at 40?

by admin on July 3, 2012

I was stunned almost to the point of being speechless (that’s unusual for me) when I read an article ‘Should women stop wearing bikinis after the age of 39’ in Marie Claire , a couple of days ago.  The article says ‘according research 70 per cent of Brits think that women should stop wearing ‘bikinis when they hit the age of 39’.The study was apparently commissioned by Isme.com to mark the release of a new range of bikinis, apparently designed to fit and flatter ‘more mature figures’. Now this survey sounds completely made up for extra publicity.

So, I’d like to find one single person that agrees with this ‘survey’, we are in the 21st Century not the 15th afterall.

There are plenty of females over 40 who have stunning figures and who look absolutely gorgeous in a bikini. There are certainly plenty of much younger ones who should perhaps avoid going on a beach holiday full stop.

I am turning 40 far sooner than I could wish and find the whole prospect horrifying enough without thinking I might need to cover up my midriff. I don’t even like swimming costumes. I say if you’ve got it flaunt it and for now I’m sticking to wearing bikinis until I should decide otherwise. Oh, and  I wouldn’t be seen dead in Isme’s new range of bikinis, just check out the granny pants.

Is there anyone out there who actually thinks you should retire your itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini to the bottom drawer for ever, when you hit the big 40?
