Each time model Ashley Graham champions the body-positivity movement, it’s a breath of fresh air. Recently, she posted a photo of herself biking in a short sundress, which plainly shows off her cellulite. Her caption is simple yet powerful:
A little cellulite never hurt nobody.. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called ‘ugly’.#lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize
We love that Graham is so candid about her body and applaud anyone in the spotlight for showing off their unretouched photos. She’s made great strides for women of all sizes this year—from being on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issueto debuting a swimsuit line any woman can feel good in, no matter her body type. While just another small example of this, the photo is riding a well-deserved wave of positive reactions on social media. And more realistic pictures are always a welcome sight in our feed.
