You want to look young and vital as you age. Your body shape may be changing, and you may have areas that you showed off in your 20s you now want to camouflage. Staying current and hip doesn’t mean you have to shop in a store that caters to the younger set. Find manufacturers that specialize in your body shape. You can look great at any weight, but you have to learn your body shape. Don’t give up on looking good. You don’t have to commit to a wardrobe of elastic clothing and cropped pants. You can also look alluring and attractive at any age. Dating later in life brings its own wardrobe challenges. The youth market won’t provide you with the clothing that would appeal to a silver fox. Wear a thong if you want. Be sure it fits and doesn’t dig into your sides. Wearing a tight thong under form-fitting trousers may not be flattering. Don’t go braless if you’re a C cup or larger. Support your breast tissue properly. Wearing the proper undergarments will make your outer clothing look better.
