'I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite'

Last updated on: April 05, 2017 09:19 IST

Model and body activist, Ashley is unabashed about flaunting her curves in her new photo shoot. 

Plus-sized model Ashley Graham has recently uploaded behind-the-scenes pics of her Sports Illustrated swimsuit photo shoot 2017 and we can't help but admire her for being brave, bold and beautiful. 

Back in 2016, she was the first size 14 model to appear on the cover of the magazine.

Not one to be shy of flaunting a few lumps, bumps and cellulite, the model is sending out a strong message to body shamers. 

If you look closer, you will notice that most of the photos that she recently uploaded have not been edited or airbrushed!

'I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I'm in. And I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn't be either. #beautybeyondsize #lovetheskinyourein,' she wrote on Instagram. 

Take a look at her sizzling pics from the photo shoot.
