Supermodel Ashley Graham is proudly plus-size but she has super helpful tips for buying the perfect swimsuit for any body type!
Model, designer, and Body activist Ashley Graham broke a lot of barriers by becoming the first plus-size model to grace the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
Now, as she prepares to debut her much awaited plus-size swimsuit line, the gorgeous 28-year-old teamed up with Glamour magazine to share some tried and tested tips on how to find the perfect swimsuit for any body type.
Tip #1: Shimmy!
Shimmy to the left; shimmy to the right. No nip slip? You’re good!
Tip #2: Only believe natural light
Let’s face it: fitting room lighting was designed for destroying self-esteem. So, only make a decision if you’ve imagined how it would look under the sun!
More than going for a typically “flattering” cut, she recommends prioritising the role of a well-fitting suit to give you that confidence–no matter what type of swimsuit you choose!

Tip #3: Over-order
Ashley recommends to make sure you order a couple of sizes when buying a swimsuit online: “That way you’re guaranteed to find the perfect fit.”
Tip #4: A friend is the best mirror
Ashley suggests having a friend take your photo. “You may know your best angles, but they sure don’t,” she says.
Tip #5: Tight or loose? You decide
When choosing the right fit, you can choose to go up a size or go for a tight fit. Ashley prefers the latter.
“I like to go down a size,” says Graham. “I heard you’re supposed to go up a size, but honey, I like it tight.”
