Promoting a happy and healthy life is plus size model Ashley Graham’s goal — and she’s doing just that by flaunting her sexy curves in the July issue of Elle U.K.!
Ashley Graham, 27, is truly an inspiration to women everywhere! She is proving that curvy and confident is a winning combo as she poses in a sheer bikini for the mag. Not only are her pics in the mag amazing, but she offered some very valuable advice and words of wisdom — see exactly what she said about the importance of being confident in your own skin!
“I hope women see me embracing my curves in my bikini and feel empowered to do the same,” the model shared in Elle U.K. “I have no reason to hide, and neither should any woman. Curves and confidence make a sexy combination.” We couldn’t agree more!
“I’m never looking to be thinner, only firmer and stronger. I love my curves and only want to enhance them.” Many critics insist that plus-size models like Ashley are promoting an unhealthy way of living, and to that she said, “I don’t promote anorexia or obesity. I promote health. And healthy at whatever size your body needs to be.”
Another subject that Ashley opened up about in the mag is her sex life. The model confessed that she has made the decision to give up sex before marriage. “I had to reclaim my body, my sexuality, and my image. It was the best thing I’ve ever done,” she said. “You don’t wake up with regrets. I’m not having a man decide what he’s going to do with my body; I’ll decide.”
Ashley’s full interview appears in the July issue of ELLE on sale Thursday 4th June. It’s also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand! HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Ashley’s amazing Elle pics and interview? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
