Plus size model Ashley Graham first posed in lingerie at age 14, with her nipples airburshed out

Posted on June 18 2015

While a lot of designers and some modelling agencies including Vogue magazine have pledged in recent years not to work with models under the age of 16, plus-size model Ashley Graham says she has been working since well before that cut-off age – and in her underwear.

One of the stars of Lane Bryant’s I’m No Angel campaign, the 27 year old size 16 bombshell recently revealed to Yahoo Style, that she’s been posing in lingerie since she was 14. ‘My first job ever was lingerie,’ she says. ‘My mum had to sign a petition that said they would airbrush my nipples out.’

Subway seductress: The supermodel posted a photo of this ad with the caption 'On the F train, literally. Can't hide these curves!!!' 

 Now in her late 20s, the Nebraska native has made a career of flaunting her voluptuous curves- She has become a regular in plus-size retailer Lane Bryan’ts ads, she made history as the first plus-size model to appear in Sport’s illustrated swimsuit issue. AskMen readers ranked her number 11 on its list of Outstanding Women of 2015.

Ashley Green’s ad in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition was first of its kind as no other plus size model had ever appeared in the issue.

On AskMen’s list of Outstanding Women 2015, the star ranked above fellow famous models such as Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevigne.

Ashley Green calls herself a ‘body activist’. She works to promote a healthy body image and prefers other descriptions over the term ‘plus-size’. She says: ‘I like curvaceous, sexy, gorgeous hunk o’woman.’ The model is glad to be breaking the mold- she is frequently using the hashtags like #iamsizesexy and #beautybeyondsize and refuses to go on extreme diets in order to conform to the idea that you have to be thin to be sexy. She tries to avoid fried food and dairy, but admits that occasionally she does splurge on a bucket of friers…don’t we all!
