Jane Seymour is offering proof your swimwear game can still be epic in your 70s, sharing an age-defying selfie in a tan coloured swimsuit.

The 72-year-old actor wowed fans after sharing a picture of herself in a plunging, tie-up one-piece with her followers on Instagram.

"The warmth of summer's arrival is like a gentle breeze whispering hope into our souls, reminding us that amidst life's uncertainties, there's always room for joy," she captioned the image, which featured the Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman star posing on holiday in Costa Rica.

Seymour certainly isn't the only female celebrity dialling up the glam in their beachwear.

From 56-year-old Halle Berry to 65-year-old Sharon Stone, there are numerous older A-listers who have stripped down to their swimwear, offering body confidence inspiration to women around the world.

Of course, it's fair to say the A-list do have almost any resource available to them (personal trainers, nutritionists, and an at-home glam squad to name a few), but there’s also a shared self-confidence as they continue to age gracefully.

These celebrities may have long left their roaring twenties, but that doesn’t mean they can’t rock a bikini with the best of them...

Sharon Stone, 65

Sharon Stone recently caused quite a stir after sharing a mirror selfie in a leopard-print bikini.

The 65-year-old Basic Instinct actor looked incredible in a tiny Dolce & Gabbana green animal pink two-piece, which she shared with her 3.7 million Instagram followers.

"Ready for summer," she captioned the image, which featured the Basic Instinct star posing in front of a mirror.

Martha Stewart, 81

Earlier this month the lifestyle guru put in an age-defying appearance as the oldest cover star to grace the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Modelling a white Monday Swimwear one-piece, the lifestyle guru joined three other celebrities to front the 2023 edition of the magazine.

Elizabeth Hurley, 57

The British actor largely uses her social media to model her swimwear designs. Earlier this month the 57-year-old star shared an incredible image of her rocking a tiny coral bikini from her swimsuit brand Elizabeth Hurley Beach.

Hurley says she isn't a slave to the gym, but has a rather more British approach to staying in shape. Instead of running for miles, or taking three spin classes a day, she claims to avoid routine classes or gym visits altogether.

Davina McCall, 55

With marathons, workout DVDs and a self-proclaimed exercise "addiction" under her belt, it’s no surprising the British TV presenter is as ripped as she is.

She may have received backlash in the past for appearing “too thin” but McCall responded by saying she “doesn’t care” what people think.

Salma Hayek, 56

The American-Mexican actor is another A-lister with an incredibly toned physique. She exudes body confidence, is a big advocate of curves and has been a huge proponent of the juice diet in the past to maintain her figure. She also attributes her shape to daily dog walks.

Demi Moore, 60

Demi Moore may be in her 60s, but she's not hanging up her bikini any time soon. And rightly so.

To celebrate Mother's Day and new grand-motherhood, the actor shared a black-and-white photo of herself wearing a string bikini and holding her grandchild, Louetta Isley Thomas Willis (aka Rumer Willis's daughter).

Angela Bassett, 64

Looking as good as Angela Bassett comes at a price. The US actor has previously revealed the lengths she goes to to stay in shape – and it’s quite a feat.

“Monday, Tuesday, I may eat carbs, fruit; Tuesday, Wednesday, protein, veggies—veggies every day—no fats those four days, and then the last three days, I flood it with fat,” W magazine previously reported. “Good fat, though: maybe coconut oil, salmon, almonds, almond butter, you know, olive oil, that sort of thing.”

Christie Brinkley, 69

You would be forgiven for thinking model Christie Brinkley was in her 40s – perhaps even 30s – not almost 70. The Sports Illustrated cover star even has a book dedicated to staying young, full of anti-ageing tips.

Elle Macpherson, 59

Macpherson's infamous nickname ‘the body’ is still relevant today now she's approaching 60. The Aussie model remains as fit as ever – largely thanks to intermittent fasting. “I was finding myself getting easily bloated, not digesting my food, and not really getting the nutrients out of my food,” she told Mind Body Green. “It inspired me to look deeper into nutrition and the way I was feeding my body.”

Halle Berry, 56

Halle Berry regularly showcases her incredible figure in swimwear, proving once again that age need not be a barrier to fitness.

According to Shape magazine, the film star follows Harley Pasternak’s 5-Factor Fitness plan, which strength and core training exercises. She’s also reportedly a kick-boxing fan.

Amanda Holden, 52

The radio presenter recently celebrated her 52nd birthday in style as she posted a picture of herself in a bikini from a white sandy beach on holiday with her family. The TV personality and Britain’s Got Talent judge posed up a storm in the snap, displaying her toned figure in a pink triangle bikini and floaty kaftan.
