Ashley Graham, you go girl!
The plus-size model, 28, just shared this hot new leopard bikini photo on her Instagram account — and fans were quick to take notice of her weight loss transformation.
“You are my queen, like seriously,” one user wrote. “I love how you love your body and make people confident about theirs as well! You are gorgeous inside and out and young girls are BLESSED to have you as a role model. Your story snatched me!”
Another said, “Thinking you’re not plus-size anymore! But keep making great plus-size bathing suits!”
A third chimed in with, “That’s the motivation I needed to get out of bed and get to the gym. Thank you.”
However, some were quick to criticize her decision to get fit — but her most loyal followers were not having it.
“Why are people complaining about her losing weight? Talking about how she made them feel beautiful at the size they were in because she was fuller and such a role model. Well, she should be even more of a role model now, she realized that to live longer and healthier, she needed healthier choices for her lifestyle, like working out more and maybe eating healthier or a balanced diet,” one commenter defended.
“Why instead of adopting those tips in order to become a better you, people hate on her because she’s lost weight? Saying that they look at themselves and know that’s not society’s standard of beauty. WHO THE HELL wants to be a standard? You are beautiful because of how you are to people and the inner you, your personality, strengths and weaknesses, not by how much you weigh or what size you use.”
Ashley has landed huge modeling campaigns in the past for Vogue, Glamour, and Elle. Last year she was also the first plus-size model to cover the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
