Age is only a number and there is absolutely no reason why a mature woman shouldn’t be able to don the swimsuit of her choice and relax on the beach or around the pool, feeling confident that she looks her best, without worrying herself about how younger girls around her are looking.
Whilst you may not have the figure of a model, there are many types of swimwear for mature women to enhance your body shape and make you look stylish and attractive. Although Helen Mirren , the actress, was photographed at the age of 62 looking stunning in a red bikini, I would advocate that mature women choose one piece swimsuits, swimdresses or even tankinis as I think a little less flesh at this age is more classy and sophisticated.
Mature women look good in vibrant colours or pretty prints that bring out the best in their skin tone, as dark, plain colours can look outdated and old fashioned and drain them of colour. They can look good in a swimsuit that has a higher neckline with wide straps and scooped back or a style that has boy legs or shorts to cover up the tops of the legs a little.
For a more feminine look swim dresses are very popular this year and if you are slim, then a fitted A line swim dress would work well or, if you are on the larger size then choose a pretty flowing style that drapes well over your curves, without ballooning out.
If you swim at the pool on a regular basis to keep in shape then you would probably be best to choose a one piece swimsuit that is more suitable for that use. There is a lot of sporty looking swimwear for mature women that use stripes in a very clever way. For example stripes down each side of the costume slim down your waist and give you a great looking shape and stripes worn horizontally across the very top of a swimsuit detract from the chest area and draws your eyes up towards the face.
Lastly, accessories can make a huge difference to creating a sophisticated mature look. Try wearing a matching sarong around your waist, a pretty straw hat to protect you from the sun or a fashionable maxi dress to slide on over your costume, and you will create an elegant stunning figure that attracts many admiring glances.
I am what is loosely termed “a mature woman” and I am actually enjoying having the experience to know what looks good on me and to feel comfortable in my own skin.
