“Just wanted to share another posed v relaxed pic from my @inthestyle shoot! Of course I prefer the shot on the left but who sits like that around the pool, breathing in, arm aching, bum digging into the side 🤦🏻‍♀”

“I really wanted to shoot my swimwear my way and show a bit of realness in how this looks on me. A huge thanks to @inthestyle for letting me do this and design a little swimwear collection which I think is flattering for all shapes!!”

“I felt so comfortable in it all!” the actress added.

“You see a picture or maybe a 15 second video of someone’s day that been chosen from many moments, edited and curated to fit their feed. So no point comparing you’re reality to someone edited one.”

“Every time I start comparing myself to a stranger online I remember that SM only shows you a tiny part, we never know the full picture so don’t go wishing you could trade lives with a randomer 😭🙌🏻”.

Ashley Graham

The 33-year-old uses her platform to fight for size inclusivity in the world of fashion, and refuses to be retouched in photoshoots.

The new mum has been also been vocal about designers who fail to cater to a wide range of clothing sizes.

Speaking to WSJ. Magazine, Ashley said: “I hate that I constantly have to discuss my body, because I don’t know any man that has to do that. But what motivates me to continue to talk about my body is that I didn’t have someone talking about their body when I was young.”

“This is why I don’t post like the ‘perfect’ Instagram photos. I keep it real and raw constantly because I want [people] to know that there are women with cellulite, with back fat, with stretch marks….”

“There are a lot of curvy women, plus-size women, fat women, whatever you want to call them.”
