Date Night Lingerie for Hot Older Women

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

Where are all the hot older women in lingerie advertising? 

There are a few, but they are a rare find in a field of hard young bodies. When you age, you also get soft in some places—even if, like me, you work out with weights three times a week. And while “hot” may not be used to describe many older women, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be.

Dear Bowie Silk Loungewear

It turns out that the one thing the geriatric crowd has over younger generations is self-confidence. I’ve got it in spades. I don’t compare myself to others, and I’m long past caring what others think of me. Aging is liberating, in that regard.

And guess what? I’m also single. 

But even if I were married, I wouldn’t feel less attractive or desirable because of my age. And lingerie turns out to be a big part of that body-positivity equation. Yes, there are styles I no longer wear, only because they don’t make me feel or look my best—or my tastes have changed. But there are plenty of other looks that rock my 60-something self. And sometimes I like to dress in something that excites both myself and my romantic partner.

Today I’m taking a look at fabrics, cuts, and designs that flatter aging bodies. If you haven’t bought any “date night” lingerie in awhile, here’s a chance to celebrate your still hot senior self. And I found a few images of older women models in lingerie, just to prove my point.

Bodysuits & Teddies

Holly Jackson recently wrote an excellent post on bodysuits for full and plus size busts. And it’s a reminder that this lingerie style works on women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Plus, they are easy to layer under jackets and pants (creating a little suspense at dinner, perhaps). Teddies offer a more relaxed or tailored fit and typically feature elastic waistbands.

Lingerie Sets

I don’t know about you, but I am long past the years of wearing open cup bras—which I likely aged out of at 16. Instead, I pick bright, colorful underwire lace sets or easy-to-maneuver front-closing bras. Matching knickers are a must. In my view, all bra sets should make you feel fabulous. So why not share? My only caveat is to ensure you’re comfortable with the cut of the bottoms.

Babydolls, Gowns, and Chemises

Seems obvious that you might want to wear one of these styles. It’s typically in the “sexy” category of lingerie. But if you’re self-conscious about your lower half, look for mid-length versions. If floppy boobs are your issue, choose underwires and fully adjustable straps. Stretch lace is a great equalizer and will camouflage lumps, bumps, or scars. Sheer fabrics and stretchy knits work the same way, too.

Robes, Robes, Robes

Yes, robes are very, very sexy. They’re an excellent way to keep some visual mystery until you decide it’s time to take it off. Wearing anything underneath is optional. And the best part is that you can choose from a range of materials and price options. I recommend investing in luxury styles in this category—because you deserve it. Plus you’ll get years of wear from one of these exquisitely well-made pieces. (You’ll find the beautiful Playful Promises robe featured above here.)
