She later said she was “looking forward to sharing my birth and postpartum journey with you all soon.” On her social networks, the model is always very transparent about her body, to the delight of her subscribers. Its goal ? To show that it is completely normal for a woman to gain weight, not want to play sports and above all, to feel good about herself. “I think that’s an unattainable reality for most women and it was for myself,” she explained in an interview with E! about these injunctions made to women to find a flat stomach or to resume sport when they have just given birth. For her part, Ashley Graham is very well in her skin.
Ashley Graham: why does she chain “body positive” publications?
Unlike many celebrities who do not hesitate to post photos that are more perfect than each other, Ashley Graham uses her social networks to convey important messages and does not hesitate to very often appear natural. The model regularly advocates “body-positive” and notably publishes videos or photos in which she highlights what society considers to be “flaws”. Long considered a “plus size model”, she had revealed that she no longer wanted to be assigned this label. “For the fashion industry, we are all tall, but the truth is that we are very different from each other, both physically and in terms of personality,” she said.
