She is big, bold, thick looking, sexy and unquantifiably beautiful. In modelling, she is one of the few celebrated exceptions described as plus-sized models. Certainly, if you are a plus-sized lady and have a body as beautiful as that of Ashley Graham, then you will accent that plus-size is a totally different class of beauty far above what is seen in skinny ladies and should never be compared with the latter because they don’t measure up for comparison in any way.
Ashley Graham’s Bio
Ashley Graham (Ashley Ann Graham) was born on October 30, 1987, in Lincoln, Nebraska where she also did much of her growing up. She attended Scott Middle School from 1999 to 2002 and Lincoln Southwest High School in Lincoln, Nebraska from 2002 to 2005. Exact details of her father are not publicly known, however, we know that her mother goes by the name Linda Graham and the proud mum featured in one of her “Swimsuit For All” shot in Morrocco.
Ashley’s modelling career happened by chance when she was discovered by an international modelling agency I & I in 1999 while at a shopping mall in Omaha, Nebraska. She signed her first modelling contract the following year, while her second contract was signed with Wilhelmina Models in 2001. The year 2003 saw her with Ford Models and several other signings and endorsements have followed suit since then.
She appeared on YM magazine, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar and several others. Ashley was the first plus-sized model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue as well as the first plus-size model to get featured on the covers of British Vogue and American Vogue.
Husband – Justin Ervin
Before Justin Ervin, Ashley Graham disclosed that she dated all the wrong men thinking she could feel appreciated through guys. She said, “[My ex] never hit me, but he did throw me up against a wall. I didn’t know how to get out then because I was so insecure.”
Well, this is quite typical of most plus-sized ladies out there today. If you are plus-sized and have had it bad with guys because of your size, hey! know that Ashley was once like that but never allowed it to swallow her. There is someone out there right for you. So get up, look pretty and go about your normal life and it won’t be long true love will find you.
Ashley found true love with Justin Ervin whom she met in 2009 in a church service- the perfect place to meet a gentleman perhaps.
The attraction between the two was almost instantaneous but they handled it well. It is said that they never had carnal knowledge of each other till they married in 2010.
The two have been married since then and everything has been going on fine with them. Ashley Grahams is enjoying a successful career with her loving husband, a videographer who saw the beauty other men couldn’t see in her.
Their union is yet to produce any baby or babies for us to virtually drool over. Maybe they have not decided to make one yet. If and when they do, the couple will definitely have a beautiful kid or kids to show us. So let’s keep a close watch on them and listen for a pregnancy announcement.
In January of 2017, Ashley shared a remarkable weight loss picture on her Instagram account much to the amazement of her fans. While some commended her for making healthy choices, others were quick to rebuke her for going against what she had represented over the years in the modelling industry. Exact data on how much weight she lost and the processes that led to it are not yet known. However, the weight loss was phenomenal. She still looks pretty anyway and far from being skinny. Let’s just say she is thick.
Height and Body Measurements
This plus-size model can be described as having a voluptuous body build adorned with curves every real man would love to have in a real thick woman. The members of her natural assemblage are all in the right proportion with each complementing the other without jealousy to make more prominent her overall jaw-dropping and unique beauty.
Ashley Grahams stands remarkably tall for a woman at 5 feet 9 inches or 175cm tall. This height carries a sexy body with a mass of 91kg or slightly over 200 pounds. This weight was before her weight loss. Her exact weight is not known currently.
Her prominent waist can be rounded up in a circumference of 30 inches with a hip size 46 inches drawing masculine attention below it. Gosh! She was no doubt seductively created inch by inch in every layer of her well contoured plus-sized body.
Generally, her body measurement is put at 42-30-46 or 107-76-117 cm while if you wear US shoe size 10 and US dress size 16, hey! you wear the same shoe size and dress size as Ashley Graham. Now that’s something to be happy about!
