Women over 50 feel at their happiest

An overwhelming 92 per cent of women who have passed the five-decade mark say they are happier than they have ever been.

Four in five women over 50 feel as sexy as they did in their twenties (81 per cent) and in fact 86 per cent of women over 50 with a partner say sex is better than in their twenties, according to the poll of 2,000 older women by Yours magazine.

And nearly three-in-four women over 50 (72 per cent) think "being a happy, footloose gran is more fun than being a frazzled parent".

Less than a quarter of women over 50 (24 per cent) worry about looking old while 70 per cent would "turn down cosmetic surgery if it was offered".

The Yours magazine Invincible Not Invisible Campaign and Survey also found the average woman over 50 "feels a whopping 21 years younger". Women who are 60 feel 39 and 80-year-old women only feel 59.

And more than half of all women over 50 (51 per cent) dont give a fig what the younger generation think about them. In fact, most said not worrying about what others think is one of the joys of being over 50.
