Ashley Graham is keeping it real.
This week, the supermodel took the gram and shared a series of pics from her 33rd birthday on, including an empowering nude selfie. In the sultry snap, the native lounges in her bathtub compelety naked, revealing her unshaved armpit hair.
Fans flooded the comments, praise for keeping things natural
“Love how you’re rocking that under arm hair girl! We’re all human, people need to stop expecting us to live up to a standard,” one Instagram user wrote.
“Quarantine pits❤️” commented another
This isn’t the first time Graham embraced her body hair. In an Instagram Story back in February, the pregnant supermodel told followers that it had been months since she last shaved her underarms after they noticed her unshaven armpit hair in post from the day before.
“For all the ladies out there who did not shave their pits basically their whole pregnancy or at least until the end, I haven’t shaved since my last public appearance, which was [The Tonight Show Starring] Jimmy Fallon [in December 2019],” she said candidly.

Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too🙋🏻♀️ After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are! No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies! It’s been tough, but my friend Chelsea @cmrh and ceo at @fridamom is making waves and starting honest conversations. It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through. All their stuff she sent me has been a life saver.
Being comfortable in her own skin (and hair) has always been Graham’s M.O.. Last month, she flaunted her killer curves in another nude photo of herself on her Instagram — just nine months after giving birth to her son, Isaac, whom she shares with her husband, Justin Ervin.
“Nakie big girl 👋🏽,” she captioned the sexy snap.
Fans showered the supermodel with praise and thanked her for showing off her curves and not being afraid of them.
“I hate that this is seen as ‘big girl’ I see nothing but a beautiful, naturally curvy woman in all her glory….. super sexy and womanly ❤️,” one user commented. Another simply wrote, “Perfection 😍.”
The champion for body positivity isn’t alone in being unapologetic for her body hair. Miley Cyrus, Jemima Kirke, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Penelope Cruz have all publicly rocked unshaven pits.
“It’s about loving who you are,” Graham told The Edit. “If you don’t love who you are, you are never going to feel 100 percent satisfied in life. It all starts with you. If you don’t love you, nobody else is going to be able to.”
