Curvy women in swimsuits are having quite a moment on Instagram

Because nothing is more empowering than embracing your body.

  • In this day and age where picture-perfect, glamorous models have such a strong influence on our beauty standards, there's one woman who is single-handedly fighting the pressure of meeting unrealistic standards of beauty. We are talking about the American plus-size model Ashley Graham, who is inspiring women all over the world to embrace their bodies the way they are. As a positive step in this direction, Graham recently launched her swimwear line for bigger women and now, her idea of #swimsuitsforall has caught on on social media as curvy women are having quite a moment on Instagram.

    Take a look:
