Yep, there’s no denying that confidence grows with every candle on the birthday cake, even as our crows feet grow more defined. This is reflected in the results of a new study, which revealed the age that most women feel happiest in their skin. It’s the big 5-0.
Lifetime Daily surveyed more than 1,000 Americans and found that people in their 50s are the most body-positive demographic. More than 15 percent of those in their 50s reported they were extremely body confident, this was followed by people in their 30s (12.1%), 20s (11.9%) and 60s (11.1%), with confidence taking a dive amongst 40-year-olds (9.2%).
The backs up a previous survey by fashion retailer M&Co, which found that women who were most comfortable in their swimwear were 65-74 year olds. They found that 51% of this age demographic said they had more important things to worry about than their dream bikini body.
That's an attitude we should definitely be adopting earlier on!
