I think it's interesting! I'm remembering a couple slender, athletic-type women I knew---nice, shoulder-length hair. I saw them from behind, they were both wearing halter-tops, bare shoulders.

I was stunned when they turned around and had haggard, wrinkled faces. I really thought they were 20-year-olds from behind.

My own observation is largely on posture. Lots of older folks have some degree of stooping. And hair, the typical old-lady haircut. Plus being gray, of course.

I was recently in a high end hotel restaurant. There is a man that lives in the hotel and he was having lunch with a woman but I could only see her from behind. I was 100% certain she was a trophy wife/gf. But then I saw her face and she looked to be about 70. lol .

Slender waist and a tight tush.

No. Unless you're talking about an extreme case of sag, or the difference of age 30 or 70.

There are other much more reliable ways. Face, hair, and clothing.

If I was desperate enough to try to guess a woman's age from looking at her rear, I definitely would keep it to myself instead of saying anything to her. She would probably get out on justifiable homicide.

I rest my case.

Silly Q but I'll play along.....


Her curve and taper
Makes the clothes that drape her
Always look so fine

Her walk and carriage
None will dare disparage
A timepiece sublime!



I find the hands, neck, and face to be most telling of a woman's age.


There is an attractive brunette I see occasionally while walking downtown at lunch in nice business dress most often walking toward me. Probably 5'7 / 120 and small on top. She looks like a cross between Sigourney Weaver and Lena Olin and I guess her to be in her 40s. I have always seen her walking toward me and in nice longer skirts.

I'm in the grocery store this past weekend and I notice this woman in yoga leggings and Football jersey top. Its her. So this time I got a chance to introduce myself. Her walk, posture, slender shapely legs and hips make her look younger. She has a youthful stance and saunter that beckons.
