Full-figured #SportsIllustrated covergirl, Ashley Graham, has finally responded to Cheryl Tiegs criticism of her. Tiegs made some comments saying that glamorizing full-figured women in modeling promotes an unhealthy lifestyle and that your waist should be smaller than 35 inches.

Well Ashley Graham who’s waist is 30 inches has finally responded to Cheryl Tiegs. In a recent interview she said

“Cheryl Tiegs may have said what she said and it may have hurt a lot of people’s feelings. But my skin is so thick. I kind of rolled my eyes, I was like, ‘Oh whatever, another one of these ladies. What’s great is that the fact that she said it it means that other women think like her. And what that means is that we really need to change the industry. There’s too many people thinking they can look at a girl my size and say that we are unhealthy. You can’t, only my doctor can!”

Ashley looks fantastic and is opening doors for full figured models everywhere. Congratulations to her!
