Am I too old for this?

Came upon this top in Zara today:

It was love at first sight, surprising even myself as this is about how far removed from my usual style as you can get.

I'm 32 yo, 5 ft 7, a size 10-12. Be brutally honest, could I get away with something so sheer at my age (ideally would love to wear it without a cami underneath as it would spoil the look somehow)? Or would I look like a mutton? Not planning to wear it anywhere near work, obviously.

I'm late 30s, 5.3", size 6 and I'd wear it blush not sure if that helps

You're 32, not 92. If you like it then wear it

32 and worried about looking like mutton?! Nah mate.

If you like it wear it & don't give a fuck what anyone thinks!

Thanks ladies, you gave me the motivational kick I needed.
Off to Zara tomorrow!

With just a bra underneath? You will look like you forgot your vest.

You're 32!!! You cannot use phrases like "at my age" yet!! Christ on a bike woman!! Get out there and get it bought, immediately. I would!

Buy it and wear it without a camisole or vest It's lovely.

Wear it!! Never too old!

I think it would look nicer with a cami/vest underneath . It's a great top.

With a camisole. That applies to any age. The visible bra spoils it.

I agree with lass. Not with a bra. Too cheap at any age. With a little black cami - yes.

I'm over 50 and would wear it...with a cami underneath though

Check your mirror, not your calendar.

32? Sniff. You're just showing off. Come back in ten years and ask us.

Or in sixty years apparently!

I dont think its age but i wouldnt. Camisole under would be much better look but if you do wear it with just a bra you need to feel good with your belly on show!
