Best Dresses for Over 40 Women

A sweet summer dress … there’s nothing better. I love wearing a pretty dress in the summertime, don’t you? But sometimes over 40 it’s harder to find the perfect one that will give you coverage where you want it.

And of course everyone has different parts they would like to cover too, right?  Some over 40 babes want to hide their legs, some their arms, some have a tummy to work around, etc.  I’ve searched through many shopping sites to bring you what I think are all good midlife dress options.

Of course not every dress will work on every midlife beauty, but I bet you can find one or two or ten that would work on you, right?  Which is your favorite? And which would you never wear and why?

    Yes, there are 10 I would actually wear and about 6 I wouldn’t – Mostly because I’m short waisted and basically don’t have a waist! I love the Morrocan print dresses and the little brightly colored dresses that cut just above the knee. Personally, I’d never wear anything belted, fitted or cold shoulder (not that I don’t like my shoulders but I prefer off the shoulder or split sleeves) Lovely choice here 🙂

      Thanks for the response, Kerrie. I’m a long waisted … maybe we could balance each other out. Hee! 😀

    These are all such nice picks, thanks for sharing! My favorite is probably the Lily Pullitzer looking one from Nordstrom!

    I love all ofthese options! The bright purple no one is my favorite.
