Sat in my office today I put on the TV to stop the random blathering of the local radio station. Cue a debate on ITV This Morning about whether or not people namely the over 50s ladies should wear bikinis. Yes I realise in the grand scheme of things this is not exactly the greatest debate that will render the world to a stunned silence but it did mildly annoy me. No it wasnt Nancy Dell’Olio’s casual flirting but it was the fact the young man who felt in the interest of ‘etiquette’ women over 50 should cover up in a swimsuit rather than a bikini. I always thought it was good manners to say nothing mean, judge others so or basically be a twat.
I couldnt help but feel appalled that a programme that constantly talks about loving who we are would not only put this as a topic of discussion but then follow it with a slimming underwear section. Say we are great and then tell us to pull on slimming wear. BAH!
Admittedly Eammon said he likes all women whatever their shape but gah! I’d rather see a happy woman rocking a look she was 100% comfortable in, than lay down laws what she can and cant wear.
I dont mind rocking a bikini…I am a size 16, 27yrs old and proud to say my momma also rocks a bikini who is slimmer than me but only a tad bit older (28 right mom?). I aint gonna judge. It takes a lot to stand there in what is technically little more than brightly coloured lingerie. So I am not going to be the one to say HELL NO GIRLFRIEND. Make sure you are just wearing the right size. Support those boobs. My bikini below..wasnt.
