What do women over 50 think?

A survey of 1500 British women aged between 40 and 60 by Britain-based bottled water brand Willow Water, found that four out of ten women picked 32 as the perfect age and the results indicated that 4 out of 10 women felt most sexy at 32 - the 38 percent who said they felt most attractive in their early 30s attributed it to confidence gained from experience, an active love life and a healthy diet.
However, when the over 50's were asked their views they came up with the following:
  • 7 out of 10 of today's over 50's are still happy to wear a bikini, with 4 out of 10 still happy to go topless on a beach.
  • 82 percent of women think turning 50 shouldn't be a reason to stop having long hair.
  • 98 percent of women over 50 wear make-up and 96 percent of over 50's still enjoy a pair of killer heels!
  • 24 per cent of 18-24 year olds believe that it's not appropriate for mature women to show cleavage but almost 87 percent over 50 believe they can still flaunt it.
Which just goes to show that we are still not going to allow our children to dictate our behaviour. Plus it gives me another opportunity to post a picture of Helen Mirren - this time in THAT bikini!
