Ashley Graham blonde hot black dress
Busty Busty Ashley Graham is urging women to stop shaming each other once and for all as she insists that she is ‘more than her measurements’ after being criticized for being ‘too fat’ and ‘too thin’.
The 28-year-old model from Lincoln, Nebraska, penned a powerful essay about body shaming for Lena Dunham’s newsletter, Lenny Letter, on Tuesday — just a few weeks after she was forced to defend herself after she shared a photo in which she appeared to have lost weight.
‘To some I’m too curvy. To others I’m too tall, too busty, too loud, and, now, too small — too much, but at the same time not enough,’ the size 14 star wrote.
When I post a photo from a “good angle”, I receive criticism for looking smaller and selling out,’ she added. ‘When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks, and rolls, I’m accused of promoting obesity. The cycle of body-shaming needs to end. I’m over it.’
Ashley, who coined the empowering hashtag #BeautyBeyondSize, said that like most people, she goes through a ‘tough selfie-editing process’ before she picks the ‘perfect photo’ to share with her 2.2 million followers on Instagram.
The model noted that most people wouldn’t put up ‘a picture that made them feel less than beautiful’, and after 16 years in the modeling industry she knows what angles maker her look best.
And while she is often told that she should never read the comments left on her posts, she explained that she has to because her followers are the first people she will look to for feedback on her many projects, including her clothing lines and speeches.
