Packaging is only important if you're sending something by mail or courier..

Sheeezzzzz….my first thought is why in the world do you even care about what other people wear?

It’s their body; they’re not hurting you. In fact, maybe they don’t particularly like the clothes you wear.

I’ve actually noticed the opposite effect is at least as common. That is, people dressing as if they are older than they really are. I’m often surprised to find many people whom I thought were much older than me are actually way younger than me simply because of their style of clothing (well, maybe some lack of activity and “old” thinking play a role too). But if that’s the way they like to dress, who am I to tell them to change?

As for me, I’m over 50 and I’m more often than not wearing jeans or some other casual attire and no one is complaining that I’m dressing too young. In fact, I think it is often inappropriate to wear constricting “old folks” clothes that impede your ability to keep active which in turn causes you to age more slowly.

I think we should all be more timeless (age is relativity with a number) and stop being offended by stranger’s clothing. There are too many other, more important, issues in this world.

So again, so what?

That’s what I think.

Maybe we all should wear our birthday suits, LOL. then we wouldn't be having this discussion!!

AgedWonder, I like that idea but somehow I think the author of this thread would be even more offended by that.

BTW - You know, I think this country has gotten a lot more conservative and uptight about being naked than they were back in "our day" when nude bathing was still legal in many places. Funny how things go in cycles.

Dressing too young?

Everything goes full-circle.

You start in diapers, and many end in diapers.

Of course, that DEPENDS

Annudder


Oh I just couldn't let that one go uncommented -

Bugger it I wear what I like
and if you don't!!!

I dress like a 'goth' mostly when I go out - my friends call me queen of the night LOL. Why do I like black - cos everything co-ordinates and I can't be a***d bothering with that stuff

If they dress to please themselves only and don't mind showing off their body, warts, stretch marks, pot belly, excessive hair, wrinkles, cellulite, knobby knees, scars, and all then they're saying I've accepted myself as I am and don't care what others think. Which is great for them, but some people do get turned off by it...




The world, and the enjoyment of it, are not reserved for the young and the beautiful. People who are turned off need to deal with their problem, and not expect others to adjust their own ideas of fashion and comfort to avoid offending those with such delicate sensibilities.

Interesting point, eyeforlight. Perhaps the underlying issue of this thread is our society's fear, disgust and abhorrence at growing old. No one wants to see wrinkles, or less-than-taut muscles. "Oooh, yeck, it's gross!" Why? We all have to try to look 20?

AgedWonder, it was legal where I grew up. San Diego, California, with one of the best-known nude beaches was officially sanctioned by the city as a "clothing optional" beach for many years (marked as such with city signage) in the 1970s before the religious conservatives made the city change it to a non-legal nude beach, after which time the police ignored the ruling and just patrolled the beach for real criminals, leaving the peaceful nude people alone, also for many years.

At it's height of popularity estimates of some 15,000 people gathered on Memorial Day. They even had a nude parade there. That's a lot of nudity. And the good thing was that it tended to have different groups of people in different places - the regular crowd was the biggest at the south; the gays had the north end a couple miles away; and in between was the sparsely populated section with a mix of straights and bi's and unknowns, most of whom were very friendly. You could be part of the masses or you could find your own secluded piece of paradise.

As an aside, I had a good friend who was a strikingly beautiful model-like girl who made the guys melt. Unfortunately for them, she was gay. During the summer, she and her girlfriend would take a summer break from college in another state to come home. They would make an ice box full of sandwiches and sell them all in about 15 minutes to guys who thought they might score with a presumable "straight" girl.That’s the way they funded their summer-long vacations there.

Times have changed since the conservatives took control. But it is still one of the most beautiful urban beaches because there is nothing urban about it. The 500-foot tall cliffs keep any view of encroachment hidden and the five miles or so of beach are pristine and unaltered.

Funny how the younger generation thinks they are always more experienced than the older generation, eh.



BTW - Sorry to put a damper on your thrill but maybe it really was illegal where you were swimming.

We have a beach here, in BC, where nudity is permitted, and women may walk with their breasts bare in Ontario.

The place is called Wreck Beach..it can be found on google..

I wear whatever feels comfortable. If it's hot...then you show more skin.

(quote:i kinda like to leave something to the imagination).MY THOUGHT ALSO. i like to dress for the enviroment i'm in,i wouldn't wear t-shirts out to a relatively nice diner,nor would i wear dress pants to a country-western club.i do however like some trend styles,but i like fashion that doesn't bcome dated,being a woman myself,i hope this isn't taken wrong,it's everyone's choice,but older gals trying to wear clothes for women 20 -30 yrs younger displays low self-confidence and esteem and possibly a hidden fear of aging,i think the same of men that dress this way too.get real guys the real young chicks don't care so much about the duds,as the money!! JUST ANOTHER PERSONAL OPINION,GO AHEAD AND SAY IT SUCKS.

nah .. i don't think in my case you can say i have a fear of aging! lmao .. i love my long Grey hair .. every bit of it .. and i love my crows feet .. they show i've laughed .. and i suppose they show i've cried too ... I've had an incredible trip .. i'm twice as old as i "was" supposed to be and half as old as i want to be ... no fear of aging here .. i hope i continue to do so for a very long time .. with My attitude!!
I think worrying about what other people think about the way one dresses is a sure sign of someone who hasn't got self confidence or self esteem... i personally think i look quite hot in my daisy dukes with my long greying hair blowing in the wind! i drive some people nuts because i just don't care for anything but comfort where clothes are concerned ... ya wanna believe theres a lot less skin in february than there is in july!! .. i love walking barefoot on the trails .. in the woods .. a lot of the time i'm in the middle of nowhere ... so it really matters only to me what i wear . .. i pretty much carry that attitude into the "civilized" world ... whether the inmates like it or not!!

again trying to stay within the rules here by not mentioning any names, but "daisy dukes" do look good on some gals, especially slim, goodlooking ones with long hair ( I like gray hair, no matter what color it is!). There is no such thing as dressing too young, unless you are running around in diapers....oh, wait, some of us seniors do that too, but we usually wear clothes over'em. I'm just wondering, though......how much protection them daisy dukes give you when you fall out of that tree??
Again, trying to stick to the topic....no such thing as dressing too young...dress for yourself, not the rest of the world!
