Meet the 90-Year-Old Woman Who Proves That You're Never Too Old to Wear A Bikini

Age is just a number.

Bikini season is right around the corner. And while we all frantically start cutting the carbs and squeezing in extra workouts, 90-year-old Irene Carney is proving that body confidence is nothing but a state of mind. An Australian swimwear company Lady Watego, recently posted a picture of Carney on their Facebook page, showing her strike a pose in a red polka dot bikini while on a cruise with her family. We have to admit, she looks amazing.

The picture shows Carney gracefully smiling and standing at the bottom of a staircase, leaning onto a wooden railing. She even gives a little hand pop! It turns out that she initially hesitated to wear a bikini at first. In her defense, it isn't often that we see a 90-year-old flaunting a two-piece. But her family convinced her otherwise and snapped this gorgeous picture of her proving that confidence is sexy at any age. 

Within hours, the picture went viral and people started commenting in her support. "Simply beautiful!" one person says. While another comments: "I love your confidence Irene! Fabulous." 

Check out the picture below! Doesn't she look amazing?
