Ashley Graham Has A Message For Those Who Are Struggling With Their Bodies This Summer


Ashley Graham understands that showing more skin in the summer is difficult for some people, but as temperatures rise, she wants her fans to embrace their bodies.

“As the weather warms up, I know a lot of people struggle with wearing less clothes and showing more skin. I hope these photos I’ve been tagged in of so many beautiful bodies inspire you to love the skin you’re in,” the model wrote Monday on Instagram, alongside a carousel of photos featuring people of various body types and skin tones, including a photo of herself wearing only a necklace.

“Believe me when I say your body is beautiful, and I know it’s easy to tell yourself that you’re not good enough, thin enough, sexy enough, or ‘flawless’ enough to wear a tank top or a swimsuit,” Graham added.

“But it’s hot out there, and so are you,” the 33-year-old added, “so don’t let your mind stop you from living your life to the fullest (and remember to say ‘I love you’ to yourself every day)!”

Graham has long been a vocal proponent of body positivity, and she has been open and candid about her own body struggles, including her struggle with her "new mom bod" while pregnant with her son, Isaac.

“When I got pregnant, I had to reimagine my relationship with my body because this creature inside me was taking over, and I was gaining weight so quickly,” she told actor Kristen Bell for Elle magazine’s August 2020 issue. “Then, to get stretch marks on my stomach, that was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I can’t believe this happened.’”

“At first, it felt devastating,” Graham explained, “but when I met Isaac, I said, ‘No, this is exactly what every woman has been talking about for ages. This is not just a battle wound. This is something that has changed my life forever, and I'm going to celebrate my new body.'”

Earlier this year, Graham told Porter magazine that she is looking forward to the day when people "don't have to explain our bodies at all." Until then, Graham plans to use her platform to advocate for the beauty of all bodies.

“I wish there had been someone as outspoken as I was when I was younger, someone as fearless with their cellulite and back fat, so I could know that this was normal; this is what a body looks like,” Graham told Porter.
