Perhaps these women loathe the fact your diligence means serious work for them if they want to compete with you?

We should dress for comfort, and part of that comfort is how we are recieved. All women are beautiful, and yes some more so than others. As a man I want to see as much of that beauty as possible, but sometimes a little mystery can really get the motor turning over too. Dress as you want everyone to see you, not how a few judgemental, perhaps jealous, women feel you should.

You know every guy here is wondering just how darn fit you are, don't you?

I think that women who are "of a certain age" should not dress the same as 20 year old girls because it makes them look desperate to look young. The clothes they wear are not about fit stomachs, they are about youth - which a 40 year does not have (compared to the 20 year old). Dress your age, not your desire to look like a kid. If you really have a great body, it will show just as well in age appropriate clothing.

Yes, I would say there is definitely "age specific" clothing stores - for both men and women. Or, in some places, different departments.

i think we are talking "class vs. trash" basically...and i think you can still do that at 40 without having to shop in the granny department at Sears...;)

Dress in what makes you feel good, who says revealing a belly button is only for 20 year olds..if a 40 year old has a nice tummy why the heck can't she wear a lil top as well? There are some 20 year olds out there wearing those types of tops that so shouldn't be..and are they frowned upon? No!! so why can't an older woman who looks good in one wear one?

I say dress the way you want and what ever feels comfortable but if the guy next to you pukes then I guess you should not dress that revealing.

I prefer clothes.

Oh what stores are they
I will dress however I want. I'm 42 and look over 10 yr younger according to everyone that meets me- men & women
I have a better body than my 21 yr old daughter and yes she will say so
So why can't I dress in whatever I like and/or looks good on me?

A 40 year old woman should dress in whatever makes HER feel comfortable..
As someone else pointed out, girls 20 years younger walk around with muffin tops ( )
If you work hard and have a body to be proud of there is NO reason not to show a wee bit of skin..
Go Girls!!!!

Women give you the up and down look,men give you the in and out look.
Doesn't matter how you dress, some will approve and others won't.
Me, I prefer the undressed look

Any way you want. Period.

Let's face it, if you go to the trouble to stay in very good shape, chances are you like yourself. So don't start in on "tastefully", or "age appropriate". Sure some people (men and women) couldn't dress themselves well if thier soul depended on it, but your original post shows enough thought about the social alternatives in dress so you should be given the respect to know the difference between class, trash, and just nicely prevocative and want to know where the lines are. Fair enough. If other women give you the look up and down, just ask yourself the place adjusted equivalent of, "Am I wearing a bathrobe to the Opera?" If the answer is no, then don't sweat thier jealousy, or thier men's either for that matter.

My two cents.

A nice body in a sexy outfit....my question is where are the pics....LOL

IMHO that is appropriate and fine to dress that way MOST ofthe time.
To a board meeting, or business function maybe not....but on your own time for sure.

More power to ya.....and do NOT let all the jealous people get you down, they just wish they could look like you .

why should there be a particular way in which you dress. Age is just a number...I am very fit and I dress anyway I want....if you got it...flaunt it....you are only young once.

Well, that just looks dumb at any age. I'm always tempted to ask if they're the new baseball team's catcher in town.

Ladies, I'm sure there are many mannerisms from your teenage years that you've abandoned by your thirties and forties. If you've still "got it" then it will show no matter how you dress.

When I see women around my age trying to dress in the styles of women 15 to 20 year their junior, it does come off as being desperate or silly. It's not much different than the middle-aged guy dumping his wife, buying a new Corvette and then cruising the local college hangouts. It's pathetic.

I guess it comes down to how people handle the aging process. It seems people who grew up fast by getting married/having kids very young try to go back and relive the roaring twenties that they missed. For my part, I took care of that nonsense back then and have no desire to revisit those days.
