Plus size model Ashley Graham let her curves out for some fun in the sun over the weekend in Mexico and we can’t get enough of it.
Ashley and her mother Linda Graham were down in Tulum for a mother/daughter getaway to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend.
The duo spent a few days down south, drinking out of coconuts, laying out, and tanning up. Ashley and her mother are pretty tight, so it’s no surprise to see the beautiful women on a girl’s trip together.
Earlier this month, the plus-size model spoke up about her cellulite and using online trolling as teachable moments for the world.
During the Create & Cultivate’s New York conference the Sports Illustrated model spoke on some of the daily abuse she encounters online and how she deals with it.
During the chat with host Jaclyn Johnson, she said, “I really think that it doesn’t matter what size or shape you are. You can be healthy, and it’s really about getting up off the couch, moving your body, choosing healthy options, and knowing that your body is yours.”
She then gave an example of a real-life moment saying — “I was wearing a really short, denim dress, and I had really high, thigh-high sock boots on. I had a lot of cellulite hanging out. I had a little chug roll hanging out. It’s life, right? A girl wrote on my page and said, ‘Girl, your thighs are busting out of your pants. That cellulite is just kicking. I can’t believe you actually wore something like that.'”
Of course, never one to back down Ashley responded to the criticism by saying “I make these moments teachable moments.” She continued, “I am not going to come at you and be like, ‘F you, B,’ because why? That’s just so much energy. So I said, ‘You’re right, ma’am. My cellulite and fat is hanging out of my pants and I am sexy AF.’ Because, why are we going to give room for trolls? I don’t have time for that.”
This is why we love her so much. Keep doing your thing girl!
