Ashley Graham Says the Term 'Plus-Size' is Divisive to Women

Ashley Graham looks sexy and chic in two looks while promoting the holiday collection of her lingerie line this week!

The 30-year-old model wore a blazer over her shoulders while doing a meet and greet at Macy’s South Coast Plaza on Thursday (November 30) in Costa Mesa, Calif.

The day before, she wore a sheer top while attending an event at Macy’s in Las Vegas.

Ashley recently opened up about the term “plus-size.”

“I think the word ‘plus-size’ is so divisive to women,” she told CBS News. “I think that when you use the word ‘plus-size’ you’re putting all these women into a category: ‘You don’t eat well.’ ‘You don’t work out.’ ‘You could care less about your body.’ ‘You’re insecure.’ ‘You have no confidence.’”

While pointing to her own body she added, “And that is none of this.”

FYI: Ashley is wearing an Addition Elle bra on the left.

    Says the fat exhibitionist.

  • Ash

    What a load of BS! She is so dumb and delusional it’s beyond sad.

  • tom

    A real model is not supposed to be fat

  • Ram

    health matters, ashley. if it doesn’t matter to you, then the term ‘pluz size’ is the least of your worries.

  • Sneak Peek

    She is delusional.

    She need to stop. Plus size is the term used for women over a standard size 14 and up. Which means it takes more material which means higher cost to make clothes. I am unfortunately a plus size and I hate it but I know nothing will change for me until I decide to do what it takes to get back to my normal weight. This trying to make people normalize obesity needs to stop. If you’re happy be your size, so be it, but stop calling yourself curvy hoping others will see it as normal. This to me is just another excuse for those who don’t want to change their lifestyle for the better. Be thankful you can find decent clothes now and not just a moomoo.

    Does this land whale talk about anything else, and how long do we have to pretend that she is actually a model? What runway show is she walking? What notable credible brand or label she is modelling for?
    She is grotesque and a complete reject by the fashion industry. Her only gimmick and way to get talked about is to cry about her massive size and then play victim.
    Nobody cares. You are massive and ppl do not like that. Her mouth is overactive, the rest of her is not.

    well said.

    That makes a lot of sense because clearly fat women don’t buy clothing, makeup, perfume, body care products, electronics, housewares, adult beverages, or cars. Models are props to sell products, nothing more. If seeing models over size six, or older models, or God forbid models that are not lily white, is a problem, why don’t you just gouge out your ignorant, ugly minded eyes, then you don’t have to see the future. Peace.

  • tom

    You are an idiot, models don’t represent any group of people, they are called models because they have the figure of a mannequin.

  • Honeybee

    You are the stupidest person alive if you don’t know that there are all different kinds models for all different kinds of campaigns and to reflect all different kinds of products, designers and companies and are chosen to appeal to all kinds of customers. It is just good business to have all kinds of people represented in your advertising to sell more product. A model is just a prop in an ad like a lipstick, a jar of face cream or a can of soda. But I can see I am wasting my breath trying to have a meaningful conversation about inclusiveness and diversity with a brain dead idiot who has the mental capacity of a plastic mannequin. I will leave you to your bitter ignorance. Bye Felicia🤬!

    That’s just stupid liberal ideals where everybody has to be happy with a medal around their neck.
