Bikini Over 40
A few weeks ago, I asked readers their opinions of women wearing bikinis when they are over 40. I personally do not like one pieces--they are hot. And, I still think I can pull off a bikini at 45. My best friend, however, tells me no. She thinks women our age should never wear bikinis. Do I listen? No. Do I still wear a bikini? Yes (even though I did buy a one piece and occasionally wear it).
I even have this discussion with my husband. He agrees that I can still wear one-what else is he going to say?
So, I have to share this little story. We were camping and swimming on a lake beach. As I was walking up to the water, I realized that a younger woman had been speaking to me. I apologized and said I didn't realize she was talking to me. She repeated what she said. "I love your bikini! It is hot and you are rockin' it!" I studied her closely and detected no amount of sarcasm in her voice or face. I think she really liked the bathing suit.
And it will keep me in a bikini another year. Especially after another friend of mine told me at the pool that I looked great the next week.
