Ashley Graham Shows Off Cellulite And Tells Followers To Embrace Themselves On Instagram

Posted: Updated:

Ashley Graham is continuing her role as a body positive activist by taking to Instagram and letting her 1.9 million followers know that beauty is beyond size.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition cover girl took to social media on Wednesday to share a photo of herself looking gorgeous whilst riding a bike. In a colourful, patterned mini dress, the 28-year-old shows off her chic summer style and amazing legs.

The photo's caption? Inspiring words from Ashley to love the skin you're in.

"A little cellulite never hurt nobody.. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called 'ugly,'" the size sexy model wrote.


Many commenters are applauding the Swimsuitsforall designer for posting a raw photo, rather than an airbrushed one.

"You're amazing!! Thanks for be my beautiful inspiration! 💙 " one comment read.

And this isn't the first time Ashley has encouraged all women to find the beauty in their so-called "flaws." Following the reveal of her Sports Illustrated Swim cover, she told E! News how she hoped the history-making issue would "change the lives of so many different young women."

"So many young women who have been told that their cellulite is ugly; that their inner-thighs that jiggle and touch are ugly because I have all those things, and I'm on the cover of Sports Illustrated. So they must be beautiful!"

Seriously, could we love Ashley Graham more?
