Do you often feel invisible? You may be suffering from Invisible Woman Syndrome.

Turns out Beverly was brought up to never stand out.

Invisible Woman Syndrome is real and this phenomenon occurs as women reach 40 years old and even more frequently at 50. The reasons are too numerous to mention here, but these factors might contribute to your feeling invisible: (1) You stop getting "dolled" up; (2) You choose a hairstyle based on easy maintenance instead of how it looks on you; (3) You haven't updated your wardrobe in the last few years; (4) You tend to throw your hair in a ponytail and fly out the door; (5) You think lipstick is more optional than ever; (6) You might not be in the same shape you were five years ago; (7) You may have gained a few pounds; (8) You wear baggy clothing that covers up changes in your shape.
