Growing up fat is hard. 

I can recall spending hours looking in the mirror and trying to wish the flaws away. But what I should have been wishing for was what we have now: more women in the media with bodies similar to my own — confident, fearless women who can help us see our beauty more clearly.  

Enter Ashley Graham and her unapologetic thighs. 

"Someone once told me my thighs were 'cellulite city."  But I now realize these thighs tell a story of victory and courage. I will not let others dictate what they think my body should look like for their own comfort, and neither should you," Graham wrote on her Instagram.

Finally, we have the sexy cellulite icon we never even knew we needed. Behold, Mrs. Graham in all her dimpled glory...

Ashley Graham knows how to show off her thigh dimples like no other.

They're her best feature, if you ask me.

Covering them up would be a crime.

They look amazing in sunlight.

5

They look even better in motion.

She knows exactly how to work 'em.

She also likes to look back at 'em. Can you blame her?

She's the queen alright.

I have words for the retoucher who dares to airbrush her dimples.

P.S. That back fat is sexy, too.
