Ashley Graham Weight Loss - Before and After

In 2016, when Ashley Graham appeared as a rookie in SI Swimsuit, she was severely criticized on socials. The cover photo featured Ashley’s slim figure as compared to her old figure.

Ashley, who condemns fat-shaming, always supports the idea that no one has the right to criticize a person for their body size.

However, Graham herself became a victim of that baseless criticism. Many took it on Insta where they let loose all thinking and opinions on keyboards.

One of her Insta followers raised questions,

‘What happened to embrace your size? You advertise that message then go and lose weight?’

Ashley did reply to each of the body shamers and critics, but we will come to that later in this article. First, let’s discuss her weight loss journey!
