Even in 2022, Filipinos still struggle to let go of the notion that certain clothes have an age limit to them. For some reason, individuals who reach a certain age are suddenly prohibited from wearing swimsuits or any other garments that may seem "revealing."
One celeb who's particularly fervent about shaking off this outdated ideology is Sunshine Cruz. The 45-year-old celeb mom has shut down unruly netizens before, and most recently, she's clapped back at individuals policing her from wearing a swimsuit.
In a recent vacation snap she took, Sunshine was wearing a sleeveless blue gray tube bikini top with matching bottoms. She tied a navy blue sarong around her waist and posed with one of her legs stepping out.
Amidst supportive comments and heart emojis, some Facebook users disapporoved of her photo, with one commenting, "What happen [sic] to you? Wala ka na sa edad para mag popost ng ganyan," referencing her age.
Similarly, another netizen seems to have had enough of the actress' swimsuit posts, commenting, "Kasawa rin yung puro ganyan itsura nya. Wala ba sya damit?"
Sunshine clearly wasn't going to let remarks like these slide. In a seperate post, she wrote: "Wearing clothes that make us feel pretty, confident and happy is never a sin. Sa mga kababaihan at kalalakihan who still believe na may category ayon sa edad ang pananamit, pasensya na po, I will not let any of you control or change the way I am."
She went on, mentioning that her love for putting together outfits and actually making her own clothes will never cease. "I love dressing up, I love wearing my own creations na crochet tops, I enjoy going to the beach with my children, so expect to see more of me dito sa aking sariling Facebook page." She punctuated things with an ultimatum, saying, "If my posts or my/our clothes bother you, kindly unfollow po for your own peace of mind." You tell 'em, Sunshine!
