This 90-Year-Old Is Proving You Can Rock A Bikini At Any Age
The words bikini shot are enough to send many women scrabbling to grab a cover up. But not Irene Carney. The 90-year-old from Australia has shown that you really can rock a two piece at any age.
Encouraged by her friends and the carers at her nursing home to buy a bikini to wear on her cruise holiday, the great grandmother bought this on-trend retro two piece made by Seafolly from a shop called Lady Watego, in Byron Bay.
While enjoying her cruise holiday she posed for this snapshot and sent it to the shop. The assistants were so impressed with the way she nailed look, they shared it to their own Facebook page. The picture has since gone viral, being shared over 863 times and attracting hundreds of comments from people praising Irene’s body confidence.
“Bloody hell…she looks better then me in a bikini and I’m almost half her age!! You ROCK Irene you beautiful woman!!” one woman wrote.
“I’m nearly 40 and have never EVER Had my photo taken in a cozzi, let alone a 2-piece. She is beautiful and proud. Love it,” added another.
Others commented how refreshing it was to see a ‘real’ woman flying the flag for body positivity.
“This is a real picture of a beautiful lady. No photoshopping. More realism in the world please then people would not have as many body issues,” one supporter wrote.
“Loving the attitude of this lady. A great example of loving yourself for who you are. You rock it and are an inspiration to many.”
