Carrie Underwood received mixed feedback as she showed off her impossibly toned legs for a football-themed Instagram photo last summer. Posting in August 2023, the 40-year-old country singer reminded fans just why she's running a fitness empire, but for some, she'd packed on a little too much muscle. Sizzling in a sparkly, one-legged jumpsuit with a leggy shorts finish on one side, Carrie flaunted her sculpted thighs and toned calves in heels, but remarks suggesting she's over-built manifested on her Instagram and beyond. When users on The Daily Mail saw the snap, they deemed the artist' "bodybuilder" legs to be unappealing. One fan even called Carrie's legs "disturbing."
