One-piece swimsuits are NOT mandatory dress code for the pool once you hit 40. Beautiful stars like Halle Berry, Elizabeth Hurley, Heidi Klum and more still have impressive abs to show off in an itsy-bitsy bikini!
Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, meaning summer is just a hot second away from celebrities buying Halloween decorations. They served us bikini body inspiration for the past three months, especially from the 40+ crowd! These ladies, many who are mothers, proved that age is just a number when it came to looking fabulous by the pool or beach. They also showed that age isn’t an indicator of health, since many of these iconic women maintained their bikini-ready abs in the gym and in the kitchen.
Jennifer Lopez, 49, as always had an incredible figure, but she just seems to get better and better as the years go by. She’s constantly hitting up the gym and working on toning her bod, and it’s resulted in her having an insane six pack in her late 40s. One of our other bikini queens is Elizabeth Hurley, 54, who is so confident in her bikini body that she even promotes a swimsuit line of her very own on Instagram quite often. It’s led to no shortage of bikini pics from her, and we’re constantly beyond envious of how amazing she looks — you can take a peek at some examples below.
Then, there’s Kelly Ripa, 48, who is also known to workout like a fiend. Whatever she’s been doing definitely pays off, though, because her abs are OUT of control. Kelly’s body is obviously super tiny, but it’s also TONED and super fierce, which she’s proven by hitting the beach in her bikini every once in a while.
From these women to Heidi Klum to Cindy Crawford and so many more, there’s plenty of more women where these came from! Click through the gallery above to check it out — if this isn’t inspiration to get those ab workouts going, what could be?!
