Let Ashley Graham's Thoughts on "Plus-Size" Become Your Confidence-Building Mantra
When we first heard that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue would feature a plus-size model in an ad for the first time, we knew it was big news. But we didn't realize how big. The face (and curves) behind the campaign, Ashley Graham, began trending nationwide, and social media was flooded with tweets and Facebook comments declaring the "rise of plus size."
We talked to the stunner about the ad and its aftermath, along with what she hopes to do next. Plus, we couldn't help but ask Graham — who also happens to design lingerie — for her plus-size shopping tips. And what she says about being labeled "plus size" is something every woman needs to scrawl in lipstick on their bathroom mirror.
