Plus Sized Model Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham is a size 16 lingerie model for the plus-size clothing store Lane Bryant. She has also appeared in fashion magazines such as Vogue and Latina.

Ashleys 36D bust caused controversy earlier this year when her Lane Bryant lingerie ad was banned from TV networks for being too racy.

Regarding the ban Ashley was quoted as saying "They can’t handle bigger on TV, bigger boobs on a normal-sized woman on TV” and Lane Bryant accused the networks of being "turned off by big gals".

The ad was eventually aired but heavily edited. Ashley went on to say she didn’t hold a grudge against the networks for the ban. In fact, she believes they did plus-sized gals like her an unintended favor by putting the issue front and center.
Ashley also experienced prejudice at a young age when students in high school told her she was too fat to be a model. Her success and these photos prove just how wrong they were.
