Despite the fact that former model Paulina Porizkova has an enviable physique for her age, several users disagree with the woman showing off her body on Instagram.
It’s common to see young men and women posing in bikinis, bathing suits, and even underwear on Instagram. What isn’t as common is to see older women showing off their bodies. However, Paulina Porizkova loves to show off her physique on social media despite the criticism.
Paulina Porizkova is a former model and clearly still retains a spectacular figure. Nowadays, the 57-year-old usually shows her body in swimwear or sportswear with all the confidence in the world, displaying a spectacular and slender physique. Even so, cybernauts have often called her “ridiculous” because of her age.
In fact, the former model recently received a comment for a photo of her posing in front of a mirror in a flattering cream-colored bikini. An Instagram user called her “old and ugly” and told her she shouldn’t be posing in a bikini because of her age.
Porizkova posted the same photo of her in a bikini alongside the comment she received, calling on other women to love themselves, regardless of the criticism, and not be self-aware about their age, since, for the former model, being older isn’t synonymous with ugliness.
“This is why I believe we become more beautiful with age. We have earned our beauty, we understand what it is, and we can see it so much better. There is no such thing as ugly and old. Only shortsighted and ignorant.”

The influencer went on to clarify that she wasn’t giving the message for others to feel sorry for her, but to empower the rest of the women who go through the same thing on a daily basis just because of their age, “I’m posting this because this is a pervasive sentiment that needs to be done away with. So we can be proud of aging, as we deserve to be!” she said on Instagram.
Porizkova’s reflection was widely praised by her followers. “You’re a strong woman for posting the same picture they criticized you for without caring,” “It’s only ugly to denigrate someone. You’re beautiful”, “If this is ‘old’ and ‘ugly’, then I want that for myself”, are some of the comments the former model received.
