Sexy after 40

Over 40 and fabulous - Vici dress

If you would’ve told me that I would feel (or even want to feel) sexy after 40 when I was in my 20s, I would have laughed. Anything over 40 seemed over the hill. But as they say, youth is wasted on the young and I certainly had a lot of thoughts back then that make me wish I could just give that young woman a hug. Had I known then what I know now, life would have played out much differently (let-me-tell-you).

Feeling sexy means something different to everyone. For me, it means owning your fabulousness and not caring what anyone says or thinks. I’m turning 44 this month, and I’m convinced we get better with age. 

Here are 5 reasons why women are sexy after 40

1. You are confident

Girl, you’ve been there done that. You went through the insecurities, the relationships (or the ups and downs of the one you’re in) and the heartaches that come with the journey of life. You know what works for you and what doesn’t. All that self-confidence that you’re carrying around is sexy. It’s real. It’s a sexiness that comes from within and can’t be bought in a makeup store, a spa or plastic surgeon office. You are comfortable with who you are (imperfections and all) and don’t care what anyone says.

2. You look better than you ever did

You’re not obsessed with looking 20. You have a real body (with flaws and all) and you’re OK with it. You have no desire to look like a stick figure in a magazine. You just want to be the best and healthiest version of yourself.

3. You’re not needy

Life is too short, and you know it. You’ve got better things to do with your time than to spend your days texting and stressing – about anything. You can quickly say – Girl/Boy, bye and carry on with your day. You enjoy and value your alone time, which makes your awesome to be with when you’re hanging out with loved ones and friends.

4. You don’t take yourself so seriously

A great sense of humor is really sexy, and you have no issues laughing at yourself.

5. You have experience

And I don’t just mean in the bed (I mean, you do know your body and what you like, enough said). You’ve got knowledge to boot and can jump into many different conversations. You’ve got an informed point of view and tons to share about any given topic.
