We just can’t get enough of Ashley Graham!
The 28-year-old made history as the first plus-size cover model for Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue, and she’s using her voice to start a dialogue about body image!
The beauty stopped by Thursday’s Ellen to talk about her new lingerie and swimsuit lines — but also dropped some knowledge on how the word “plus size” carries a negative connotation!
Explaining that the fashion industry considers every woman over size 8 to be plus size, Graham says she’d prefer her body type to be described as “curvasexalicious,” since that’s how she feels!
Confessing that her confidence came out after embracing her curves, the model said how going forward, she is more concerned with woman being active and healthy than obsessing over trying to look skinny!
