Ashley Graham Puts the Sizzle Back in the Bikini
For years The Bikini Police have been promoting plus size women to get out there, be proud of their bodies and sport a new bikini.
To be fare it does not seem to be the public’s opinion that was the problem!, This is one of those times that it was the marketing teams of huge fashion organizations that simply did not keep up with the needs of the general public and to be honest, in retrospect, we probably could have done a much better job of it ourselves.
Well it seems times are a changing and not any time too soon from our point of view.
For the first time ever, a plus size model will be gracing the pages of the famous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Magazine for 2016 and let us tell you, this is going to be one smoking hot issue.
Even though the 2016 Magazine Issue was released on Feb. 15th. Ashley Graham has caused quite a stir.
The breathtaking Ashley was born on born October 30, 1987. Graham grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska USA. Ashley and her two younger sisters attended Scott Middle School from 1999 to 2002 and attended Lincoln Southwest High School from 2002 to 2005.She was discovered in the year 2000 at age 12 by the I & I agency while shopping at the local mall.
Already the stunning Ashley has left a legacy that will be hard to beat. Curves are beautiful and embraced not hidden or feared. Graham was quoted as saying “This cover isn’t just a celebration of her achievement, but a societal victory as well.”
Well Ashley, be proud, this 28 year old has achieved what most thought was impossible. She has put the word sizzle back infront of the word bikini. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for the world next.
