Ashley Graham made history as the first curvalicious woman to cover the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, and since then, she’s had to fight back against critics who have slammed her over her weight. Cherly Tiegs even said the fuller-figured beauty isn’t “healthy,” but the cover girl proved this week that thicker girls get their sweat on too!
The 29-year-old headed to a workout at LaGree Fitness with her husband Justin Ervin, and looked hot (literally!) in a black tank top and leggings.
And apparently having a workout buddy is a blast, because the couple even shared some laughs during their session.
Meanwhile, earlier this year, Ashley released a memoir, where she goes into detail about her negative experiences with agencies who urged her to drop the pounds if she wanted to last in the industry.
She writes, in part, “No matter what your job is, you've had to do things a little differently if you are a curvy woman. I have had to constantly justify my career choice over and over. But that might just be the secret to my success.”
And Ashley has become more than successful, all while embracing her figure and promoting body acceptance at all sizes.
