Plus size model Ashley Graham yesterday released a photo on her Instagram account of her in bikini on a trip to the Philippines.
Different from the clichés of her in lingerie where she poses for different companies like Addition Elle, this untouched photo shows her body honestly, with her cellulite and all her imperfections.
“I’m training. I do my best to eat well. I’m comfortable with myself. And I am not ashamed of a few holes, bumps or cellulite … And you should not either,” she wrote on Instagram in post accompanying the photo while she is in Manila, Philippines.
Earlier this week, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model shared another body photo in the same leopard-print bikini by Swimsuits for all that showcased her flat stomach and her hourglass shape.
Graham is a model to follow for many people who unfortunately have difficulty accepting themselves day after day.
The outspoken model gives a freshness to the field of fashion and goes beyond the pre-established criteria of beauty.
Last June, she published a cute shot of her bike, cellulite prominently displayed, inviting her subscribers to stop judging their bodies.
Her dedicated to a positive body image hasn’t gone untocied by her fans.
One Instagram user told Ashley that her constant promotion of self-love is helping her overcome an eating disorder.
“You have no idea how much idea how much you are helping me on my journey to win anorexia; thank you for all the body positive messages,” she wrote.
We think Ashley looks fantastic and has a personality to match!
