Actress Sunshine Cruz once again answered netizens asking her to “dress her age.”

Sunshine shared screenshots of some comments on her Facebook post. “What happened to you? Wala ka na sa edad para magpopost ng ganyan,” one said.

“Kasawa rin yung puro ganyan itsura niya. Wala ba sya damit?” another netizen commented.

But for Sunshine, it is not wrong to wear clothes that make her feel pretty, confident, and happy.

“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,” aniya.

“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 also told those who do not like to see her posting her outfits of the day (OOTDs) to just unfollow her.

“If my posts of my/our clothes bother you, kindly unfollow po for your own peace of mind.”

This is not the first time that Sunshine replied to a netizen commenting about her clothes. Sunshine also calmly answered a netizen months back and said that she does not believe that there is a chart of attire according to age.

“Kailangan po ba ang attire ko like yours para masabing tama ang suot? I don’t think may chart ang attire according to age. Basta happy at confident go lang po! Walang bawal at masama,” she said.

Meanwhile, netizens also backed Sunshine and told her to just keep on doing whatever makes her happy.

“Continue to spread body positivity Ms. Shine! Palaging may masasabi sa atin ang mga tao, kahit ano pa ang gawin mo. Piliin nating lagi kung anong magpapasaya sa atin,” C. Mariz said.
