How Old Is Too Old For Bikinis?
Women In Survey Give Expiration Dates For Certain Looks

POSTED: 7:18 am MST May 16, 2011

How old is too old? A new survey is answering that question when it comes to women wearing bikinis, miniskirts and stilettos.

The study, commissioned by Diet Chef, surveyed 2,000 women who said that women shouldn't wear bikinis after the age of 47.

The cut-off for miniskirts was 35 years old and for stilettos was 51 years old.

Here are some other results:

Knee-high boots: 47 Leggings: 45 Tight vest: 44 See-through blouse: 40 Long hair: 53 Ponytail: 51

My mom started wearing a one piece at 60 and still has long hair, some knee high boots (for the Barbara Stanwyck look) , and never wore miniskirt or stiletto because they were uncomfortable.

I don't get the boot prohibition unless they mean knee-high boots with a miniskirt. That's a tough look to pull off at any age.

The leggings one is also weird. Leggings are perfect for older women because they cover up a lot of skin. I don't see why a 60 year old couldn't wearing leggings, a tunic, and ballet flats and look perfectly fine. :confused:

Not so much a question of age, more of a question of size :D

I think by knee high boots, they're talking about fuck me boots. There should be an age restriction on fuck me boots, pumps, and other sexy clothing.

A weight restriction would be more useful these days.

People should have the common sense to know what looks good and what doesn't.


I haven't worn a bikini since I was preschool aged. Even when I was a healthy, slender teenager, I chose to wear a one piece swimsuit because I was modest.

But I am not giving up leggings in 5 months. I wear them with knee-length tops, it's not like I'm revealing anything. And now that I am approaching my goal weight and my ample cleavage is separate from my waistline, I'm showing it off.

oh goodness. You're right.The tan threw me. I thought the lips looked odd too but she does the botox thing. Still that is pretty awful.

At age 46, my little sister was easily able to still wear a bikini. This was taken just months before she was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, that had metastasized to her liver, causing swelling of her liver.. hence the tiny pouch in her abdomen that she couldnt seem to walk off. Her bikini days are over because of the scarring from her surgeries. She still looks great enough to turn heads in blue jeans and shorts, at age 47.

As others have said, it isnt so much the age, but the size/cellulite/sagging.. etc.

Don't make me post a pic of Donatella Versace in a bikini. Age is also a factor. :eek:

I don't know but one thing's for sure: As I have gotten older, so has the upper age limit for bikinis.

shifting standards isn't a bad thing...as i've gotten older, i've found older women much more appealing and younger (18-20 yr olds) less

I remember when I realized I was old. I saw a mother and adult daughter together and was more attracted to the mother.

My ex-wife is a life long athlete and can still wear her college volleyball uniform, mini-skirts and bikinis with no problem at 49.

i'm only 28, I just find i'm in that happy median where women in a 20 year span (38ish-18) are not creeped out at the age difference, and that the upper age limit are becoming more attractive than not :cool:
