Strike age from the question. If it looks good flaunt it. If it doesn't, well cover up.

I say if a woman looks good in a pair of shorts,she'll probably look great in a skirt cut just above the knees...no matter what age she is!

"Baby Got Back"

[Intro]
Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt.
It is so big. [scoff] She looks like,
one of those rap guys' girlfriends.
But, you know, who understands those rap guys? *scoff*
They only talk to her, because,
she looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?
I mean, her butt, is just so big.
I can't believe it's just so round, it's like,
out there, I mean - gross. Look!
She's just so ... black!

[Sir Mix-a-Lot]
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough
'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh baby, I wanna get with you
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that butt you got makes me so horny
Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin
You say you wanna get in my Benz?
Well, use me, use me
'Cause you ain't that average groupie
I've seen them dancin'
To hell with romancin'
She's sweat, wet,
Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
I'm tired of magazines
Sayin' flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back
So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)
Tell 'em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)
Shake that healthy butt!
Baby got back!

(LA face with Oakland booty)
Baby got back!

[Sir Mix-a-Lot]
I like 'em round, and big
And when I'm throwin' a gig
I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal
Now here's my scandal
I wanna get you home
And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh
I ain't talkin' bout Playboy
'Cause silicone parts are made for toys
I want 'em real thick and juicy
So find that juicy double
Mix-a-Lot's in trouble
Beggin' for a piece of that bubble
So I'm lookin' at rock videos
Knock-kneeded bimbos walkin' like hoes
You can have them bimbos
I'll keep my women like Flo Jo
A word to the thick soul sisters, I wanna get with ya
I won't cuss or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna ******
Till the break of dawn
Baby got it goin' on
A lot of simps won't like this song
'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
And I'd rather stay and play
'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong
And I'm down to get the friction on
So, ladies! {Yeah!} Ladies! {Yeah}
If you wanna roll in my Mercedes {Yeah!}
Then turn around! Stick it out!
Even white boys got to shout
Baby got back!

Baby got back!
Yeah, baby ... when it comes to females, Cosmo ain't got nothin'
to do with my selection. 36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3".

[Sir Mix-a-Lot]
So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
My anaconda don't want none
Unless you've got buns, hun
You can do side bends or sit-ups,
But please don't lose that butt
Some brothers wanna play that "hard" role
And tell you that the butt ain't gold
So they toss it and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it
So Cosmo says you're fat
Well I ain't down with that!
'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'
And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'
To the beanpole dames in the magazines:
You ain't it, Miss Thing!
Give me a sister, I can't resist her
Red beans and rice didn't miss her
Some knucklehead tried to dis
'Cause his girls are on my list
He had game but he chose to hit 'em
And I pull up quick to get wit 'em
So ladies, if the butt is round,
And you want a triple X throw down,
Dial 1-900-MIXALOT
And kick them nasty thoughts
Baby got back!

(Little in the middle but she got much back) [4x]

I don't think age has any bearing on it. It all depends on ones sense of style and their physical condition. 55yo with a great figure and want to wear short skirts and low rise jeans? Go for it!

I usually prefer to keep my legs covered ~ even though I'm petite, I love maxi dresses. Short dresses are distracting, yes? They can't help but check out the legs

I have asked a couple of men why men will closely watch a woman in a short skirt but not as much in shorts. Both gave me the same reply: shorts are shorts--if they fit right, a woman can bend over and still be modest, and the wind will not blow the legs of shorts up to expose anything.

On the other hand, when a woman wears a short skirt, there is the possibility of seeing up the skirt--she might bend over unwisely or the wind can blow it up.

I find that wearing a thin, long skirt is just as cool as wearing shorts or short skirt; I like to vary my wardrobe.


Short dresses are distracting, yes? They can't help but check out the legs


Well, yeah. As long as he doesn't cat-call, make a lewd comment, or display other inappropriate behavior, what's wrong with that? I am not going to avoid wearing something that IS appropriate to wear because men check out my legs or a bit of cleavage.

That is totally wrong! I am 50 and 150cm is way past my neck to my ankles lol. I'm also a dressmaker and I always advise my customers,depending on their height and figure-body type.For example Joan Collins is 78 yrs old and she looks fab wearing her skirts 2 inches above her knee..Enough said.....

That was cute, Gwendolyn :)

I'm a bit shy now that I'm older. I don't fault others for showing their legs, cleavage etc.

Ah, my dear . . . have you gotten "shyer" because society has told you that women over a certain age shouldn't do this or that?


being over 50 you have an image to maintain.


And what image is that? That because I am almost 60, that I should lack sex appeal? That I should be matronly and staid? That I should be in the kitchen baking cookies for my grandchildren? Because people will disrespect me if I do not conform to arbitrary societal constraints and expectations?

You could be right, Gwendolyn

When I was younger I used to enjoy the attention. I guess I still do, but in a quieter way :)

I have to wonder if some of these women who have rules about skirt length and hair length also have a rule about how much cleavage a woman over 50 should be showing! Is there a rule for how many inches above the nipples must be covered?



...I was just flipping through the rule book on cleavage and it says at least an inch above the nipple would be acceptable, any less would be "showing off"

Crap, now everyone will see my belly button!

Hey just wear what makes you feel good. If you get a few admiring glances why not. Just above the knee may over emphasise the knees. If you know how to do it mid thigh can look best. You'll have worked out how to pick things up without bending over and how to sit without giving the game away!
Just enjoy. If it makes you smile that's good too!

There is a formula for wearing skirts: Measure the inseam of your pant leg, subtract an inch for every year over 20 you are , until you reach 30, and that is how far from the ground your skirt hem should be when standing.

Wow Donnie- thats pretty analytic-and of course it would take two people.
I'll stick with two inches above the knees, and yes, I get compliments. Thanks girls for the insight.
