A Lady of a Certain Age

The Free Dictionary says “a certain age” is a phrase “used to avoid saying that a person, usually a woman, is no longer young but is not yet old”.

But where is that certain place?

The¬†Collins English Dictionary¬†says: “of an unspecified age, but no longer young – usually said of women”.

Yes! I am a woman of a certain age and I am proud about it.
