At what age should a woman stop wearing short clothes?
For those of you who aren't against short shorts or mini skirts or that type of clothing, at what age should a woman stop wearing them? Is is just dependent upon how she looks in them? Or do you think there should be an age cut off?
LOL, what a question. This is like asking when should men not take their shirts off in public! As a woman, my answer would be when the butt starts drooping and the skin on the legs sag, it is time to wear the long skirts! But if I am hot and uncomfortable from this excessive heat, I do not care what others may think. I only want comfort then!
Are you in a shopping mall
In your home or on the beach
At the park or carnival
With a butt shaped like a peach
It matters your location
Not your age what you adorn
But for elucidation
It's Fifteen or Eighty Four
Whenever she wants to. It's a woman's own business what she wears and when she wears it.
I believe it is mostly dependent upon her body type and respect she has for her image. Based on how she would be viewed, I also believe there should be an age cut off. Would you want to see your grandmother in short shorts?
There is no set time to top wearing short clothes. I would say that it should depend on a woman's figure and the image she wishes to project. I personally would not want to compete w/ a teen daughter and seriously doubt that she would want me to do so. My approach is to dress w/ confidence, knowing that a woman can still look good at any age while dressing w/ good taste.
it should be up to her, not anyone else. dressing sexy or nice is something that i love about women and i hate the thought of anyone telling someone they are too old for a certain type of clothing.
I like to judge what I wear by two questions, would I want to see my baby sister wearing this or any future daughters, and would I like to see my grandmother wearing this. If I answer no to either question I can ask myself the question, should I be wearing this?
Another little point and many of you might not like this, but pay attention to what the women around you are wearing and the men around them. My fiance asked me to do this because I often didn't notice. But when you take the time to pay attention you start to see what others see.
Everyday I see womens underwear. Not purposely, but sitting on the subway its in my face, walking up the stairs its right there. I am tall so if I look down it is there.
Now it doesnt have any affect on me I am a woman too, but if you watch the men that is a different story. I have seen many who stare, I have seen licked lips, and I have seen distressed men who look away or stare up or down or where ever they can. It is really hard in the summertime for men who do not want to feel lustful. Understanding male sexuality is a good step to understanding what we can do to them without even meaning to.
The way you dress is not about you, everything you do as an adult affects everyone around you. Children who look up to you (that includes up your shorts and skirts if they are under 4 ft) and the men and women surrounding you.
I am not against shorts or skirts. I wear them all the time, I am against doing anything that will cause another person to stumble. I am tired of seeing women's underwear, and the mens too for that matter :p Try two tests to see if your clothes fit. Sit down in front of a full length mirror. Then stand up. Whatever you saw you are advertising to the world. Put a mirror just above your head and look up, whatever you saw you are displaying for all the tall people out there.
If that fails picture these clothes on a 5 year old. Not okay for them? Shouldn't be okay for you.
I believe it's up to the wearer and no, I don't think there should be an age restriction. Age is a number. But in my opinion, a woman should show some class in her attire. I'm a little old fashioned in that department for sure. I love dressing like a woman, feeling feminine and with that comes a responsibility not to show all your goods just because it's hot out.
But I also think it's awesome when I see an older woman wearing something a teenager would wear and be in better shape than the teenager. If you're in great shape, I say show it while you can but keep it classy. With that said, look at Tina Turner. The woman is almost 74 and she still rocks her mini. She's never looked anything less than classy and classic, in my opinion.
If a woman is in good to excellent shape, she can wear short clothes, even bikinis until her 70s, even 80s...…….
That's not politically correct. Who gets to judge of the woman in excellent shape? You? There are all shapes and sizesand all are excellent to someone.
You simply love being my nemesis, don't you honey! The devil is always busy...… Yes, there are women who are in GOOD to EXCELLENT shape. Why won't you admit this? While there are women in GOOD to EXCELLENT shape, there are others who have...…..GONE to SEED physically, not caring how they look. You really can't handle reality well-what a shame!
The reality is that people are judged. Yes, JUDGED-believe it or not. People are judged by looks, socioeconomic level, educational attainment, whether they are likeable & intelligence level. Based upon these things, there are some who are more & some who are less. This society & culture are hierarchical, you can't avoid this no matter how hard you try. You can't change this! WE ARE ALL JUDGED! Remember Dorothy, not everyone gets a trophy in life!
Yes the reality is that people are judged. I remember a fat Swedish man in a Speedo who offended my eyes during our honeymoon. It didn't offend him to wear them. I didn't say a word to anyone and I certainly didn't attempt to insult him. If he was happy then that was what he needed to wear.
People, especially women, are insecure enough to not need judgemental people telling them when they can bare some skin and when they can't.
And, to be honest, the premise of this thread is very sexist. Who cares what a woman wears? If she is happy in her own skin and the clothes she wears, who are you, I or anyone, to judge?
It's very catty.

As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like I am trying to turn back the years too far. What do you think?
