What an honor it is to appear on the cover of @bazaaruk for a third time. Growing up, I can’t remember seeing a curvy woman on the cover of a magazine, let alone in a bikini. To everyone putting on a bathing suit this summer - this cover is for YOU. Let it serve as a celebration or reminder to you that your body is beautiful. ????
Ashley looked absolutely radiant in the sun-drenched snap. Photographed against the backdrop of the frothy waves, the ravishing model showcased her curvaceous frame with contagious confidence, making yet another powerful statement for body positivity.
Channeling her inner seductress, Ashley struck a playful yet provocative pose, winning hearts over with her candor and sending pulses racing with her alluring charisma. Placing her palms firmly on the soft sand, the dazzling Addition Elle lingerie model leaned on her hands and arched her back, kicking up her feet as she gave the camera a very entrapping come-hither look.
Ashley put all of her best assets on display in the turquoise two-piece. The buxom supermodel showed off a generous amount of cleavage in the low-cut bikini top, proudly showing off her ample décolletage. At the same time, the high-waisted bikini bottoms drew all of the attention toward her curvy derriere, while also accentuating her tiny waist and offering a good glimpse of her shapely thighs.
This is not the first time that Ashley has rocked a turquoise bikini on Instagram this week. On Tuesday, the talented bikini designer modeled another head-turning two-piece for her fans, one that she created herself for Swimsuits For All.
Needless to say, her latest snap received a lot of attention from her 8.4 million Instagram followers. The new bikini photo garnered close to 140,000 likes in addition to more than 730 comments.
“QUEEEEEEEEEN,” wrote one very enthused fan.
“This is such a stunner!!!!,” penned another, adding a trio of double-heart emoji to their comment for emphasis.
“Love how happy you look,” read a third message, trailed by two sparkling-heart emoji.
“LOVE! Power to the curves!,” said a fourth Instagram user, inserting three heart emoji into their post.
One particularly ardent fan had this to say.
“Ugh girl!!!! You’ve made it easier for me to get dressed. Seriously. I love you!”
