Judge Judy Wears a Bikini at 70 Even Though She's Way Too Old (VIDEO)

OMG 27

Judge Judy bikini on Katie

On a recent family trip to the Bahamas, 70-year-old Judge Judy wore a bikini without hesitation, basically because she wanted to sport a two-piece one more time in her life -- and she wanted to celebrate her 70th birthday with a bang.

She sat down and talked to Katie Couric on Monday and told her all about the amazing trip -- and also dared to show off a photo of herself wearing her white bikini and sheer cover-up.

And while she definitely looks amazing for her age and should by all means proudly wear a bikini if she so chooses, personally, I don't think I'd have the balls to do it. Because 70 is just way, way too old to show off that much skin. (Yes, it is.)

And I'm seriously hoping women wearing two pieces in their 70s doesn't become some sort of trend, because it will completely ruin my plans to possibly retire my bikini once and for all at 35. (Damn it!)

Even though I do my best to stay in shape, I find myself becoming less and less comfortable with wearing a bikini on the beach every summer, because part of me feels like I'm simply a bit over-the-hill for that sort of thing. I guess as a mom, I feel this innate need to cover up -- even though I know that plenty of moms who are older than me have no problem donning a two-piece. (What's wrong with me?)

And if I don't hang up the bikinis once and for all this summer, something tells me it will definitely happen by the time I hit 40. I'll no doubt have switched to tankinis or one-pieces by then -- and by the time I'm 70? Yeah, I'm guessing I will have ditched the swimwear altogether in favor of a mumu.

Do you think there is a certain age when all moms should stop wearing bikinis, or should they simply wear them until they aren't comfortable in them anymore?

Don't you dare pick on Judge Judy! She's the best! If she feels comfortable wearing a bikini at 70,more power to her! Why should people past a certain age be ashamed of their bodies?

If  you go to other parts of the world, then you may see that our cultural view of nudity and swimwear is different.  I spent a summer on the Riviera, France, Italy.  Women of all ages often go topless with just a bikini bottom on, including 70 + year old women and overweight women.  They wanted to go swimming.  They wanted to get a nice tan.  I saw a very old, wrinkly overweight granny with just her bottoms on with her grand kids and they were all playing in the sand, while the adults in the family swam in the ocean.  They were all having a good time.  No one was self-conscious.  It was a beautiful thing to see.

If I looked like that at 70, I'd sure be happy wearing anything other than a mumu. There are plenty of young girls who wander around the pool side every year wearing two pieces that, in my opinion, should have chosen better swimwear. Get over yourself and your body image issues and don't try to reflect them on society- we deal far too much with the way people feel about themselves and all too often they are sadly rather devastating.

You are never too old to feel sexy. And the fact that you are a mom has nothing to do with it.

I say wear it if you want to..no age or body tone restrictions. If its offensive, we all have the ability to look away.



Btw..I think Judy's rockin' it!

Why do women feel once they become moms they should give up on everything?  JJ not only looks amazing but tasteful as well.

I'd rather see Judy at 70 in that bikini that some of the 20 something women I've seen in them that do not have the bodies for them.

If you don't like it then don't look. I think she looks fine and I have seen some people who shouldn't even come out of their homes before, at the pool. She looks better then most people in a bikini.

She's wearing a fashionable, tasteful and very beautiful coverup over her bikini.  I don't get what all the fuss is about.

you are such a rude person! After how much everyone complaines about how rude you are i would think you would try to tone it down. Judy looks great!
