The hotties turning heads on the beach these days are getting bolder and wiser.
Famous ladies over 50 are strutting their stuff in bikinis, proving that being confident in your skin doesn’t come with an expiration date.
Supermodels like Elle Macpherson and Brooke Shields, and actresses including Susan Lucci, Halle Berry and Elizabeth Hurley are proud of their fit figures, and it shows.
Below, a look at a few of our favorite bathing beauties and the swimwear they swear by, along with shopping links so you can snag their suits too.
As for their hot bods? You’re on your own there.
Elle Macpherson, 56
The 56-year-old Aussie beauty was nicknamed “The Body” back in the late ’80s, and she’s still all about the old adage today. She has her own supplements line called WellCo, and consumes the green Super Elixir powder daily; she also dines on mostly “fresh plants, fruits, nuts and seeds,” and broccoli and sunflower sprouts, she told The Post last year. Here, she sports a shimmering silver Melissa Odabash bikini with a pair of exclusive Chrome Hearts jeans.

Jennifer Lopez, 51
Viva J.Lo! The 51-year-old triple threat is one of the fittest A-listers on the planet. Her exact white string two-piece from Frankies Bikinis is no longer available, but this similar style pairs equally well with a tan.

Helen Hunt, 57
The actress, 57, an avid surfer and body boarder, is mad about this little black Asceno bikini, having worn it several times while cooling off in Malibu.

Heather Graham, 50
The “Boogie Nights” beauty, 50, is similarly loyal to a particular suit: this white halter-style bikini, which she’s been spotted in numerous times over the years. While Graham — who once said she was “obsessed” with yoga and has been biking in NYC during lockdown — has never spilled the details on her favorite two-piece, Heidi Klein makes a nearly identical option.

Brooke Shields, 55
There’s no missing the “Blue Lagoon” star, 55 — and her obliques! — in this neon suit. Her Melissa Odabash “Badi” bikini is no longer available, but the brand’s bright red “Cancun” two-piece has a similar vibe. Make like Shields and style yours with a classic sun hat and plenty of gold jewelry.

Halle Berry, 53
“Sometimes you have to say f—k it, and just do it!,” the eternally youthful-looking Oscar winner, 53, captioned this photo of herself leaping on the beach in a backless navy one-piece. For a likeminded vibe, try Lygia and Nanny’s draped swimsuit.

Sharon Stone, 62
At 62, the “Basic Instinct” bombshell, who told Shape in 2018 that she works out on her own at 24-Hour Fitness gyms four or five times a week, has never looked better. We love Stone’s colorful crocheted bikini; if you do, too, this number from Frankies Bikinis should fit the bill nicely.

Elizabeth Hurley, 55
It makes perfect sense that the actress, 55, has her own beachwear line, because few people look better in a bikini. Heck, she even works out in one! In May, she posted a video of herself doing shoulder raises with two-pound weights, saying, “Every day, I try to do some arm exercises.” Here, she poses in one of many striped styles from her collection.

Luann de Lesseps, 55
Money can’t buy you abs! The 55-year-old “Real Housewives of New York” star starts her sculpting workouts off with a 15-minute run to get the blood flowing. Snag Luann’s look with this two-piece set from Doll since her Trina Turk style is no longer available.

Susan Lucci, 73
“You age in reverse,” one Instagram user commented on this beach snap of the 73-year-old soap star, who has said she does Pilates six days a week. Sadly, Lucci’s favorite black one-piece — which she memorably wore for her unretouched Harper’s Bazaar shoot in 2018 — is no longer for sale.

Cynthia Bailey, 53
The 53-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star rocked a no-longer-available Target bikini on Instagram in July, proving you really can’t go wrong with a classic black string swimsuit. Bailey told The Post she gained 20 pounds during quarantine cooking for family, but in the past few weeks she decided to “take back control of my life, health, spirit & happiness” and has had success with intermittent fasting.

Paulina Porizkova, 55
In July, the model — who has said she didn’t start working out until she turned 40 — posted a cheeky topless Instagram showing off a 20-year-old deteriorating “tan-through” bikini bottom, writing, “Time for one of us to retire!” Believe it or not, those retro tan-through styles are still available for anyone who has yet to learn the value of SPF. The good news is, a leopard string bikini, like this one from Solid & Striped, is timeless.
