But this isn’t so, according to the findings of a recent study, revealing that it’s actually women over 65 who are least worried about their bikini bodies.
Because, quite frankly, they have better things to think about.
A survey of 1,300 women conducted by U.K. fashion retailer M&Co found that 51 percent of women over 65 said they have more important life concerns than obtaining the dream bikini body, compared with 41 percent of women overall.
Meanwhile, 18- to 24-year-olds are the ones not flaunting themselves, with 56 percent admitting that they buy swimwear cover-ups to hide “problem areas.”
And 72 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds wouldn’t take a swimwear selfie.
Confidence seems to increase with age, as 46 percent of 55- to 64-year-olds said they had “more important life concerns” than the perfect body — a 5 percent decrease when compared with those over 65.
But at least there was this finding, about how women of all ages had their priorities straight: 85 percent said they wouldn’t give up their other halves for a year in exchange for their dream body.
Because, as the over-65 participants proved, there really are better things to worry about in life.
