Your Turn

Melissa Joan Hart said in a recent interview that it is not appropriate for a woman her age (38) to wear a bikini in public. Do you agree?

Only if it's teeeeeeny and you're the size of shamu and yes that goes for the male menopausal mankini also

Sugar said...

She can fuck right the hell off if you ask me.

Sugar said...

Sorry, I'm in a mood, I guess!

Seven of Eleven said...

I always to look to Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, for my fashion questions.

Listen, when older dudes with hairy moobs stop jogging past me shirtless, then we can start a conversation about appropriate attire for 38 year old women.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

If you're in decent shape and are very self-confident, go for it! Helen Mirren was rocking one a few years ago in her 60s, and she looked great! It's really more a matter of how you feel wearing one, so if Melissa doesn't feel right in one, she shouldn't wear it.

Glitter said...

It may not be appropriate but if I had a great body, I would do it.

Count Jerkula said...

If you got the body for it, the age don't matter.

VIPblonde said...

I will let Helen Mirren answer for me, TYVM

Violet said...

Wear what you want. But oh yes, I will secretly be judging you. I wouldn't personally, despite my lithe gym toned body. (Joking: 3 children take their toll no matter how many hours I spend running.)

Cleodacat said...

If you got the body, rock it. Otherwise for the sake of humanity, please dress appropriatly (includes you guys as well).

derek harvey said...

On the beach yes. At a club in Vegas etc. NO!

Bacon Ranch said...

Depends on your shape and what you are comfortable:
wearing
subjecting everyone else to

Agree Discobitch about the men in speedos.
Why is it the ones you want to see in speedos wear boxer type suits?

I'm sure guys feel the same way though.

sandybrook said...

60 year olds wear bikinis on my beach. Nothing wrong with her wearing one if she is fit and confident in her body rocking one.

nurysp said...

if i looked like her than no its not appropriate her ugly ass

but jlo is 40+ HELLL YEAAAA!!!
HALLE
Eddie murphys ex wife

her ugly ass can fuck off

Renoblondee said...

Age has nothing to do with it. See Jen A and JLo as examples. . She's an idiot.

tennis peach said...

If a woman has a good enough body to wear a bikini, I say wear the bikini. With that said, there are some places that I think are inappropriate to where a bikini, even if you have a great figure; a private country club being one. However, if you go to an island or the beach for vacation, wear it.

FrenchGirl said...

Inappropriate?! You wear what you want in a free country!

T. E. Cuz said...

agree with others above: if you take care of yourself, then age is not an issue.

T. E. Cuz said...

lol @frenchgirl, free country as long as you have all the mandated licenses and permits.

Bacon Ranch said...

Great point nury.
After all, if MJH ruled the fashion world, Stephanie Seymour's son would have reason to ever go to the beach again.

Groggy said...

Age has nothing to do with it. If you can rock a bikini at 55, more power to ya. If you're 18 and don't have the goods, it's a bad look.

Murphy said...

She's known for being a snarky ass.

MISCH said...

No, if you have the body go for it

EvieShackles said...

Helen Miren looks great in a Bikini and she's in her 60's. It's not age... if you got it, flaunt it.

Kno Won Uno said...

Melissa Joan Hart thinks she's relevant. Do you agree?

Susan said...

Fuuuuuuuuck that shit. I am 38 (gag!), I feel like I'm 18, am a baby momma, weigh 112 pounds and will rock bikinis in all of their glory down the Jersey Shore all summer long. These age rules are bullshit! Wear what makes you feel good. My younger sister thinks we need to wear tankinis now that we're in our 30s. Bitch, puh-lease.

parissucksliterally said...

There comes a time, but I don't think it is 38. It really depends on the shape you are in. I see 20 year olds who should not be in a bikini!

haydnhorse said...

Refer to Helen Mirren looking stunning in bikini at whatever age she is.

haydnhorse said...

@evieshackles, sorry, I missed your comment

HimynameisChloe said...

Damn! I looked at that forever, filled with envy and awe simultaneously

NomNom83 said...

"Not appropriate"?

What's not appropriate? Wrinkles, stretch marks, sagging skin, cellulite, liver spots, and other imperfections?

Oh, honey, we're all getting older. Just say "fuck it" and do you.

It's a shame she feels like she needs to protect other peoples' eyeballs from what she looks like in a two-piece. She should wear what she is comfortable in.

Then again, if every time I put on a swimsuit paps were jumping out of the bushes and I ran the risk of ending up on the cover of "Worst Beach Bodies", I might feel differently.

EvieShackles said...

No worries. Here's Miren in a bikini 68YO

Gayeld said...

My boobs haven't been small enough to wear a bikini since I was 14.

Brenda L said...

The real problem is the ones who think they look GREAT in a bikini.....and they don't.

See; Courtney Love

Discobitch said...

Didn't she appear in a mag not long ago wearing a bikini after losing weight. Explain that clarissa

witwritergirl said...

Totally agree NomNom83! Life's too short to worry what others think.

Zoe Cialite said...

It's inappropriate for her to wear a bikini at any age.

Tricia Shaw said...

If I looked like her id stick to one pieces, hefty bags, or staying indoors and working that transculent skin she's got

Tricia Shaw said...

Guess I'm in a mood like sugar
But I'm also 42, just had a kid, live in Miami and rock a bikini daily...
Bugger off Sabrina

Tara said...

My mom's 56 and she does and can wear a bikini. She's got incredible legs and is very slender, so it works for her. For me at 22, I have a very large chest and a butt I'm not totally in love with, so I don't wear skimpy suits. I like the pinup-style one pieces anyway, because they give me a great silhouette and really can't droop or ride up. It's up to the person and their style or comfort, not others.

Jessi said...

Evil Twat is just looking to get noticed! Wasn't this trick last year on People magazine in a bikini for losing weight?!?! Take your racist ass home and shut it Sabrina!

Cocoa said...

Jeez us, I laughed, Sugar! I'm sorry about whatever's causing your mood, but that was funny!

nora nader said...

derek harvey said...
On the beach yes. At a club in Vegas etc. NO!

My thoughts exactly!!! Do whatever you want on the beach, but dear God, don't bring it into the city/public dwelling.

FS said...

In a world where a few clueless women wear see through leggings with no underwear to the grocery store, MJH in a bikini would be a relief.

Vestal Surgeon said...

MJH needs to wear a onesie to hide her tummy tuck and lipo scars.

Vestal Surgeon said...

Sunshine said...

Who cares? There's no judgment at the nude beach! Big, small, tall, short - it's all the same.

Kat has left the building said...

Wow what's wrong with her self esteem that she cares what others do? I think it's rude for anyone to have too much hanging out but since that's subjective I only judge if the person is being obnoxious about it (even though I shouldn't judge!) but really when I see any woman especially overweight ones with the balls to wear a bikini in public having fun, I'm so happy for them.

Kat has left the building said...

I realy think all her not so nice comments lately about other celebs and now this say more about her attracting not good attention to herself. I think her being so openly critical of others shows she's not happy with something in her life and I hope she fixes it.

auntliddy said...

I have never felt comfortable in bikini at any size. I want to swim, ride waves and mb play ball or dig for seashells without worrying about my privates popping out. But thats just me if you look good and feel comfortable, do what u want. When I see someone in a bikini who clearly shld not be , i think two things:1) omg! Thats so unflattering, how cld she do that to herself? And 2) god bless her, she doesnt care what anyone thinks!!

discoflux said...

Really? Then why the hell did you do this in April, trick?

JSierra said...

I think you should wear what you want at any age. If you always live for other people you will never be truly happy.

Melpomene25 said...

I'm with everyone that says wear what you want. I don't care if you are a beached whale, if you feel good in what you wearing more power to ya. Lord knows I've seen some scary-ass looking guys in way too tiny speedos, but no one seems to make it a point to publicly condemn them...MJH just needs to go the fuck on.

fancyscreenname said...

If you've got the body for it...wear it.

Runswithscissors said...

Simeon here mentioned eddy Murphy's ex as an example of hotness, she is hot!!!! And it's been reported she knows how to work a strap on, I would definitely line up at her door

yinyang said...

Wow! 38 is new age for SS? Wear what u want if it makes u feel good, that's all that matters... MJH needs a stylist so she needs to zip it & worry about her own style!

Runswithscissors said...

Oh! And MJH can just go hide under a kaftan inside a whale.

Habibti said...

She is just conservative. Each to their own. I enjoy laughing at big whales in string bikinis. Better than cable tv! Haha!

Mary Ann said...

It depends on the size of the bikini and the fitness of the body inside the bikini.

When I was 38, I wouldn't have worn a bikini. Heck, when I was 28 and had the best body of my life, I wouldn't have worn a bikini. I wouldn't have felt comfortable with that level of exposure.

To each her own.

Count Jerkula said...

@Gayeld: Pics?

0_0 said...

If you look good in a bikini, go ahead. Age matters not.

airhead said...

38 is random number to cut bikinis out... But I does anyone actually want to see her in a bikini ?

I don't, she would have to pay me to lool

airhead said...

Look*

Vestal Surgeon said...

Gayeld : no need to brag doll! (kidding, but slightly jello)

Harry Knuckles said...

Strenuously disagree bitch. On both of your points. I love giant ass fatso chicks in bikinis. I like watching them walk. All that giggling.

And menopausal guys need love too, you know. Some of us maybe aren't looking too buff as we progress through our life cycle, but if the equipment still works (and it does, most of the time) then a little advertising is sometimes called for. Have a little compassion, will ya?

Iwinjen said...

+100

Countess Eden said...

Lol, " explain that Clarissa" she is ridiculous. Do you. Different places have different thresholds of hotness. If your feelin it, do it. I might stare at you, but you'll never know.

M. Brown said...

Wasn't she just on a cover in a bikini?

crila16 said...

Excuse me???? Hell no. Sure, when you look as gross as Melissa it's inappropriate and embarrassing...but not when you look like Jenny McCarthy, Cameron Diaz,Christie Brinkley. I say you bikini all the way. Also, it may not be as attractive after a woman has had children, because of possible stretch marks...but who cares. You can still look fabulous in a bikini.

Melissa is a jealous pig with a wonky eye.

PotPourri said...

It's fine as long as you're not a cow!

Harlow17 said...

shit i only have ten more years to wear a bikini! going to get one on starting now

if youre in shape who cares

Sherry said...

I think she's just conservative and that this was most likely (like lots of others here) taken out of context.
Agreed..You look good and feel confident then rock that bikini. You looking like Shamu invest in a good one piece and a cover up.

MadLyb said...

Bikini's are okay for those who are comfortable wearing them. She really doesn't have the cred to speak for all women.

BeckyMae said...

@SEVEN speaking of Helen Mirren, did you see that Miss Orphan Black is going to play her in an upcoming biopic?? It was on Nerdist :)

BTW I haven't worn a bikini since 1983 but I sure as hell could not give two craps if anyone else old, obese, skinny, big moobed or not does.

Seven of Eleven said...

@BeckyMae!

LowKey said...

On the beach, sure.
In church, perhaps not.

A Pyatt said...

Fuck that! I bust my ass in CrossFit just so I CAN get this 43 yr old ass into one! Thank you very much!

BeckyMae said...

@Seven I know right? They had a pic of Tatiana against a young Helen and the resemblance is remarkable...

I'm up to ep 3 of season one thanks to your avatar and loving it! Mr Mae though, not so much....he's still in deep mourning for Breaking Bad...

lauramart said...

Ugh, her wonky eye drives me crazy. It's a ll I notice when I look at her.

BeckyMae said...

Correction, Tatiana is playing the younger version of Mirren's character in a film about a Jewish woman on a mission to rescue 5 Klimt paintings from the Nazis...

Count Jerkula said...

The thing I hate about Bikinis is using them to falsely advertise. Say yer at a motorcycle event, and they got a Bikini Bike Wash going on. Walk over to check the broads out, before deciding whether or not to drop the $10, and the broad has shorts on. WTF? I seen 1 where they had white t shirts on over the bikini top too. WTF??!!?? PASS.

Alita said...

I enjoy looking at people that I think look attractive (not in a creepy way, just in an 'appreciating the human form' way), but I've seen people that are beautiful so ashamed of their body that it makes it impossible to be comfortable around them - other people that have a confidence that makes them hot regardless of being less prima facie beautiful to me.

Tl; dr - attitude is what makes 'it' work!

Maureen said...

She should have made it personal such as I don't feel comfortable in a bikini at 38. That would have got a totally different reaction and would have been more accurate. But she didn't. One part wants to tell her to deal with the fallout and the other wants t cut her a break. Hmmm...Witch will it be? Hee! I'm too punny today.
