Are you into your forties and wondering whether to try wearing a bikini still?  Even if you have a fabulous figure, wearing a little bikini can be entirely unnerving when you are into your forties.  An older woman just doesn’t have the same skin elastisity as her younger counterpart.  Somehow, an older woman in a bikini can give an illusion of exposing a little bit too much skin.

Beach coverup

This former supermodel Stephanie Seymour shows a great choice for covering some her body while still wearing a two piece in her forties.  She chooses a simple crochet, lightweight scarf and ties it around her with a cute knot at top center.  It is adorable, cute, and most importantly covers up her body from too much exposure.  You can see that she can play along the beach with her kids and feel comfortable and adequately covered.   She is certainly a beautiful lady with a great sense of style.

I love this coverup idea.  Only a supermodel would come up with this, but you can see it just works.  Next time you are wearing that bikini, cover up a bit with a lightweight crochet or lace scarf.  Choose a neutral color and tie at the center.  The toned down color of this scarf makes the perfect accessory for her navy blue swimsuit as it does not overwhelm the swimsuit.  With a neutral toned scarf coverup like this you will have a great effortless look that is fresh, clean and just pretty.  Even though she is wearing a one piece she has the same level of coverage as a two piece by adding the lace scarf.  Nice sunglasses too.

I saw an article on Estee Lauder limited edition bronze goddess capri collection on Spoilt by pink Diva. It’s an Australian lifestyle blog that features fashion and beauty. I couldn’t agree more than them on loving this photograph of Hilary Roda in a dazzling gold Bikini!

Estee Lauder

Warner weather inspires us to get bronzed and beautiful. Estee Lauder has a truly stunning collection of makeup that helps women capture the essence of summer with a suntan safe makeup. The colors are sun kissed and completely gorgeous. Foundation, nail polish, eye-shadows, bronzer and eye pencils all have summer shades of bronze, gold, brown, white and turquoise.

Hilary Rhada is so gorgeous as well! She is a younger version of Elizabeth Hurley for sure. Like Hurley she’s a stunning brunette chosen to represent Estee Lauder. Rhoda is so pretty that she also appeared as Sports Illustrated model. Her body is as incredible as her face and hair.  Try a gold swimsuit against a deeper sun-safe spray tan to get this luxe look.

I love this picture from Estee Lauder. The gold swimsuit is so flattering. Her animalistic hair and natural toned makeup is amazing. This is the kind of look you want to get from a combination of bronzer makeup and fake tan. Getting this tan naturally is a no-no and too damaging for the skin. But with makeup and tanner? Way to go!

Are you self conscious in a bikini? Are you always wondering what to throw on over your swimsuit when it comes time to take a walk?  This sexy photo of two absolutely gorgeous models provides plenty of nifty beachwear ideas.  Her swimsuit top is adorable and summery with the cute flaps on it.  Paired with an interesting low hanging necklace her chest looks amazing. Long necklaces are great cleavage enhancers. She has fabulous sun glasses and the perfect beach hair and beautiful tan. 

The best thing about her outfit are the casual cotton pants thrown on over her swimsuit.  The gauze material is perfect for swimsuit cover up attire.  Light weight and breezy, these pants could cover a plethora of figure flaws.  Big rear, thighs, or cottage cheese on the legs?  These pants will cover it and at the same time look appropriate if worn at the beach or pool.  Even though they are long the white color and thin sheer material makes the gauze wide legged pants perfect as a swim suit cover up. 

As we age we can get pretty bad cellulite running down the legs.  Many women wouldn’t even dream of putting a swimsuit on because of lumpy legs.  Help has arrived.  Try a very light weight cotton pant with a loose elastic or string tie waist.  Way more breezy than sweats, the sheer fabric fits in and looks sexy at the same time.  I love her fashion and the gorgeous boyfriend sure doesn’t hurt as a great accessory either!
