A 90-year-old grandmother is being praised online for donning a red-and-white polka-dot bikini and rocking it like a pro.

Irene, a mother to 10 kids and a grandmother to plenty more, was brought to clothing shop Lady Watego in the seaside town of Byron Bay in northern NSW by her daughter last month. Their initial plan was to shop for a kaftan for a family cruise she was going on. A few weeks after their initial peruse, the pair came in again after staff at Irene's aged-care home convinced her she needed a bikini for the cruise.

Beckers says she's ecstatic that the world is embracing "natural women" of all ages.

"My message is always to get out, enjoy yourself, and you are never too old for swimmers!" she said.
