Internet Erupts After 76-Year-Old Grandma Rocks a Sleeveless Dress!

Everyone has an opinion, but sometimes we forget it’s best to keep it to ourselves.

A 76-year-old style influencer recently posted a photo of herself wearing a sleeveless midi dress. While the post received many comments, not all of them were nice.

“It’s not the first time this has happened, but this one surprised me,” Candace Cima told TODAY. “People have such outdated ideas about what older people should wear, and that needs to change.”

Cima, who is a grandmother of 11, showed off a brown knit sleeveless dress paired with a sweater.

Many people praised her style, but others criticized her look in the comments.

“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 it 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 because she saw a need for older women to have a voice in fashion.

“I saw a chance to talk about how to dress as you get older. Women have been taught to think they need to cover up because that’s what their mothers and grandmothers did.”

“We need to change how we think about age. We don’t need to stick to these old ideas in today’s world.”

Despite the many rude comments, Cima didn’t pay much attention to them. Instead, she shared some advice for her new and younger followers.

“Aging is great. Everything you have learned throughout your life is now with you. You are now the wisest you will ever be. Embrace it and be proud.”
