Ashley Graham's Pregnant Nude Photo Recreated by Women - Health
It's basically a body-pos celebration. In a series of Instagram Stories on Graham's account, she highlighted tons of women across Instagram—28 at the moment, to be exact—who are paying homage to Graham's body positivity by posting their own nude or nearly nude photos. Just in case you need a quick refresher or, you know, just want to see the loveliness that is Graham again , her OG post on Sunday was a super-artsy shot of her naked body from the side, sitting down, with her hand covering her breast. To be clear, not all of the women recreating Graham's photo are pregnant, nor do they need to be. Women all over Instagram are celebrating their bodies—stretch marks and all; pregnant or not pregnant; larger-bodied and smaller-bodied—and opening up about their insecurities and journeys to body positivity and acceptance. She shared the details of her difficult pregnancy, writing, "Only the Lord and my Husband really know how hard this pregnancy is for me Although I have a child who is 13 all of this is still so new to me.
