While Ashley Graham is getting ready for a huge milestone in her life with the arrival of her baby boy, she is celebrating another momentous occasion by hitting a milestone in her professional career. The supermodel announced this week that her swimwear line, Swimsuits For All, was celebrating its 5-year anniversary.
“Celebrating 5 years creating supportive sexy swimsuits just for you with [Swimsuits For All],” Graham posted on Instagram alongside a sultry shot of her in the plus-size swimwear.
She also included a sultry hot throwback photo while modeling one of the line’s red one-pieces.
Swimsuits For All is an online retailer for women’s swimwear specializing in sizes 4 and up. They launched in 2005, and Graham joined in 2014 with her own Essentials swimwear collection.
According to a description on Swimsuits For All:
“If you’re sexy and you know it, show it in one of our Ashley Graham swimsuits. This designer swimwear line features daring one piece swimsuits and bikinis meant to flaunt your figure wherever you go. Supermodel Ashley Graham isn’t afraid to show off her swim body, and you shouldn’t be either
Back in May, Ashley Graham teamed up with Sherri Shepherd for a co-ed body positivity campaign called “Every.Body.Counts.”
The campaign was meant to advocate for more inclusivity in modeling and clothing options for women and men of all body shapes and sizes.
In an interview with US Weekly during the campaign, Graham talked about including men.
“We know that women’s bodies are historically more judged and scrutinized, but we also recognize that men are subject to those pressures as well.”
She said the inclusion of men in the campaign “shows our continued commitment to represent and celebrate different body types and sizes, supporting the confidence journey for everyone. Guys, we see you too!”
Ashley Graham also revealed that she has gained a considerable amount of weight during her pregnancy … but says the best part is she does not care! The supermodel is understanding that her body is changing during this sensitive time in her life, and although she’s put on weight she’s remained very healthy and kept an active lifestyle throughout the pregnancy.
“Throughout my pregnancy so far I’ve gained 50lbs. And the best part is, I don’t care! I have never felt better, and I am so thankful that my body and son have allowed me to be as mobile and flexible as I have been. Between working out, yoga, acupuncture and lymphatic massages- I finally feel like I figured out this whole pregnancy thing and how to feel my best.”
