Ashley Graham Has a Message For "Mamas Who . . . May Never 'Bounce Back'" From Postpartum
Ashley Graham has been a beacon of light for the body-positivity movement — especially for her role in normalizing body changes that occur through pregnancy, breastfeeding, and postpartum life. Recently, she shared a video to Instagram of herself in a bra and undies. In the video, she's smiling, having fun, and smacking her bum to encourage fellow mothers to embrace their bodies as they are.
The caption reads, "Posting this video for all the mamas who haven't and may never 'bounce back,' and for anyone who needs to be reminded that your body is beautiful in its realest form. This is my strong, five-month-postpartum-been-pregnant-for-two-years body. As it is. In hopes to further normalize ALL bodies in every and any stage of life." Well-known body-positive Instagrammer @thebirdspapaya commented, "bounce forward babyyyyy," while Chelsea Handler said, "Dat ass."
In the video, Graham is wearing Knix, an intimate apparel brand most known for its leakproof period underwear. In early May, Graham announced her own partnership and collaboration with Knix on two different lingerie collections made of mesh and modal fabrics. As previously reported in POPSUGAR, "The collections contain bras, underwear, and chic bodysuits that are made to make you feel and look your best. Constructed of stretchy fabrics that are soft and breathable, the intimates are available in a slew of colors to suit your style." To say that we're excited about the Ashley Graham x Knix collaboration would be an understatement.
