76-year-old grandmother ripped apart in comments after modeling sleeveless dress on social media
Everyone has an opinion, but sometimes we forget it’s best kept to ourselves.
A 76-year-old style influencer recently shared a photo of herself modeling a sleeveless midi dress and while the post was flooded with comments, they weren’t all positive.
“It’s not the first time this has happened, but this one surprised me,” Candace Cima told TODAY. “People have such outdated notions about age-appropriate fashion, and that needs to change.”
Cima, a grandmother to 11 grandchildren, showed off a brown knit sleeveless dress paired with a sweater.
“From the side and back this dress does nothing for you. Form fitting below the waist is not your friend. Celebrate everything else about your body!” one person wrote on Facebook.
“The sweater on, not a fan of the dress,” someone else commented.
“Not flattering at all. Would never wear alone. Too old to be showing all that skin,” another user dared to write.
“It’s perfectly appropriate to have wrinkled skin at 76, and I’m not ashamed of it,” Cima said. “Sometimes I want to respond, ‘Should I cover my face too, because I have wrinkles there?’”
Cima started her fashion blog in 2019 after noticing a need for older women in the space.
