brimfull Thu 23-Jul-09 15:05:23


mine went ages ago

same thing happens to your arse

arse drooping is apparently to dow ith hormones

read it somewhere so must be true

SetSquare Thu 23-Jul-09 15:06:58

but your arse is not so vital - you can hide that and support it, knees are OUT a lot more, well in my home anway

<looks worriedly at ggg>

melanie griffin is alarming.

Mine are slipping a little like a unset jelly...but aren't crumpled yet.

SetSquare Thu 23-Jul-09 15:08:59

lol at DM ese "Elle has fallen victim to saggy knee syndrome, a cruel and distressing affliction " grin

CybilLiberty Thu 23-Jul-09 15:09:35

That's why leggings are such a blessing.

<prays they stay in for a while>

CybilLiberty Thu 23-Jul-09 15:10:19

That's why tri8nny Woodhall wears leggings a lot, she's skin and bone apart from said knees

My knees are still like a teenager bit annoying the rest of me has gone south.It is awful as my legs could wear some shorts etc but too old everywhere else!Elle macpherson looks good what is wrong with them?

AnyFucker Thu 23-Jul-09 15:11:12

Yep, saggy knees is an affliction I also suffer from (am 40+)

Add to that, veiny feet and the beginnings of varicosities behind my knees and it's all starting to go soooooo wrong

My arse is not too bad but I swear my undercarriage is 2 inches lower than it used to be

Although my tummy is flat, I get horizontal lines across it. Wtf ??

Oh well, getting older isn't too bad if you consider the alternative smile

saggy knee caps holder

SetSquare Thu 23-Jul-09 15:11:47

but out of all the parts of your body MOST likely to be OUT ( boobs tummy ect) knnes are up there

CybilLiberty Thu 23-Jul-09 15:12:13

Anyfucker I share your afflictions but my arse is getting wider

AnyFucker Thu 23-Jul-09 15:13:25

I don't bare my knees any more, apart from on holiday

brimfull Thu 23-Jul-09 15:13:53

oh my arse is never on show

I do look at a lot of old arses at work though

they all look very similar

loss of muscle causing the austrian blind look

"That's why there comes a time when every woman in her 40s must accept that her days of wearing miniskirts and hotpants are over, and she must embrace a wardrobe that consists of belowthe-knee hemlines."

Feck off! My legs are my only good feature.

noddyholder Thu 23-Jul-09 15:15:26

demi moore had hers lifted allegedly

jumpingbeans Thu 23-Jul-09 15:16:00

Perhaps Ellie, should stand/walk slightly crouched, it would stretch the skin over her knees, but then again perhaps thats not the look shes going for

PhyllisTine Thu 23-Jul-09 15:16:58

Or a stout bulldog clip on each leg at the top keeping things taut.

BitOfFun Thu 23-Jul-09 15:18:07

Anyfucker - are your denim skirts all below the knee now then? What would ABD make of that, I wonder?

Didn't Demi Moore get her knees lifted?

AnyFucker Thu 23-Jul-09 15:21:01

lol BOF, I will never forget the denim skirt "debacle" too grin

I actually don't own a denim skirt, but if I did, it would sit on the knee

My knees are ok when I sit down, you see, and I have fab thighs wink

But the tits are crap sad

I believe Demi did get her knees lifted, but I saw a recent pic and they were a bit saggy again

DebiNewberry Thu 23-Jul-09 15:22:19

oh god, you have got to stop it with the DM.

I like oh my fug for a nice bit of bitching about slebs

OrmIrian Thu 23-Jul-09 15:23:07

ROFL - lifted means something different to me. I was having visions of someone nicking Ms Moores knees and leaving her resting on two piles of bricks grin

lol at stout bulldog clip, Phyllis grin
