Women: What do you think about a middle-aged grandma wearing a short (3 inches above the knee) cocktail dress? The wearer (me) is in very good shape and has (if I do say so myself) great legs. But maybe I’m past it now? My daughter says go for it. Opinions?

Do you feel good in the dress? Then go for it. Flaunt those legs.

I do feel good in it, but it’s more daring than I usually wear. Still, why do I work out and watch what I eat if I can’t occasionally wear a dress like this?

When you no longer feel it looks good it's time to stop. Until then go go go. :)

Even if you didn't work out or watch what you eat why shouldn't you wear whatever you want? If it brings you joy you should wear it. If you're comfortable and happy you should wear it!

You don't need to earn the right to wear it by working out or dieting. Even if you did neither of those things, you could still wear it. It's your body, your wardrobe, your life. Women need to stop asking permission to do what we already have the right to do.

Thank you for saying this. It’s depressing how many comments are qualifying their approval based on whether the wearer has “great legs” or not. I’m sorry, but who decides what makes my legs acceptable to be seen? I do!

Do it! If you are 65 or 70, I’d rethink it.

What YOU wear is entirely your choice. If you feel happy, and comfortable, wear it. If not, don’t bother.

Why not wear what you want no matter whether you work out? You do you.
