The correct possessive spelling of lady is lady's, if you are referring to one lady, or ladies' if you are referring to more than one lady owning the same object.


The correct possessive spelling of lady depends on how many ladies own the object. For lady, the possessive singular is a different word than the possessive plural when written, but it is pronounced the same.
