Ashley Graham shared a photo in which she modeled a lingerie set to her Instagram feed on Thursday, October 31. The plus-size model and expecting mother took to the popular social media platform to post the throwback snap from the first trimester of her pregnancy, when she hadn’t still gone public with the news.
The photo showed the 32-year-old model sitting on a bed as she rocked a maroon two-piece lingerie set that consisted of a T-shirt bra with adjustable straps that went over her shoulders and an underwire structure that helped accentuate her cleavage and “give the girls great shape,” as she put it. The American Beauty Star host teamed her bra with a pair of matching lace bottoms that sat just above her bellybutton, providing quite a bit of coverage.
As she indicated via a hashtag added to the photo in her caption, the lingerie is courtesy of Addition Elle. Fans of Graham who might be interested in purchasing the underwear set, or other products from the brand, can enjoy a 30 percent discount by using her special code, she detailed in the caption.
Graham was in her first trimester when she had this picture taken, and wasn’t yet showing, she further explained in her caption.
Since going live, the post — which Graham shared with her 9.3 million Instagram followers — has garnered more than 153,000 likes within about 12 hours since being published, as of the time of this writing. The same time period also brought in upwards of 350 comments to the photo.
Users of the social media app flocked to the comments section to engage with the model, while leaving a trail of compliments and emoji as well.
“I want this so bad!!” one user said, including a string of emoji after the words.
“Gorgeous babe,” raved another fan, trailing the comments with a red heart emoji.
“Absolutely gorgeous,” a third fan chimed in, including a series of red roses to the message.
As The Inquisitr pointed out, Graham announced in August that she and her husband, Justin Ervin, were expecting a baby. According to Business Insider, Graham and Ervin know the gender of the baby, but they don’t plan on making a public announcement on it, or any kind of gender reveal. She added that she will let everyone know the gender when the baby is born, as per the report. Graham is due in late December or early January, which means she is in her last trimester, the report further explained.
