    I guess it depends on what kind of glitter we are talking about. Full on glitter I would never wear but see plenty of women at the pool with it on. That being said I have bronzing lotion that has sparkle in it and I wear it on legs, collar bone to make me look thinner. Btw I live in arizona

    My thought goes more to a stripper thing lol

    I do own some, but I only ever used it on my face and that was a years ago.  For my body I would opt for shimmer over glitter, and even then I don’t know where I would wear that at this age.  I can’t recall seeing anyone wearing body glitter in the last few years here.

    freshflowers:  Some bronzers have glitter and I put some stuff on my daughter’s when they are in pageants to make them “glow” on stage. Maybe it was something like this. Body glitter, from like the 90’s I am like you, I was not even aware it still existed outside of little girl’s dressup sets.

    I thought it was more of a late 90s, early/mid noughties thing. Mainly for younger women. Defintely have not seen people wearing it in recent years.

    Body glitter adds a classy, elegant touch to any evening … as long as you’re swinging around a pole when you wear it.

    I haven’t worn body glitter since I was in the fifth grade, which would have been about 2003.

    Just my opinion but I am not a fan and do not wear it and do not ever forsee me wearing it.
