Ashley Graham is the definition of sex appeal.
You don't even need to look at her modeling portfolio — just head over to her Instagram, where more often than not she's flaunting her unfiltered assets and contagious confidence in a bikini or lingerie.
Alll this is to say that it makes perfect sense that the supermodel should have her own intimates line, the Ashley Graham X Addition Elle collection.
A few months ago, Graham showcased her latest bra designs at New York Fashion Week. Watching her sashay and slay the runway in her sexy bras made me want to try them out for myself. So I called in two friends and we placed our Ashley Graham bra orders...
The highest band size is 44DD, with larger cup sizes like DDD, G, and H capping at a band size of 42.
The lowest overall bra size offered is 38C, but there are smaller band sizes for 34D-DDD, G, and H. Prices range from $30 to $98 for bras and panties, respectively.
I fell in love with this style, but struggled to feel comfortable in it.
First impression: it automatically gave me an underboob. I loosened the straps over my shoulders and tightened the neck harness to tuck my girls in better but it still didn't feel good. Though I wasn't expecting great lift from a bralette, this kind of gave me pancake tits.
The next bra she tried on was the Ashley Graham Fatal Attraction Bra ($59) in charcoal gray.

The second bra, also a 44C, fit Vanessa better, but she was still smitten by the lace halter of the first one.
"The black Diva Bra was a step outside of my comfort zone, but I’m glad I tried it. I felt super sexy in the strappy style and could totally see myself wearing it again."
"I feel like both styles I tried were worth the price and up to par with other similarly priced bras. It’s hard to come by bras that have a beautiful design AND enhance the shape of your boobs in a good way. I’ve been burned way too many times by popular brands that flatten my chest and make me look like I have flying saucers on my chest. Not cute," said Cindy.
JESSICA: I started the haul expecting the worst. The brand doesn't carry my size, but I was pleasantly surprised after trying them on. Though the bralette didn't fit comfortably, the second bra turned out to be the best-fitting bra that I've worn in a while.
VANESSA: She had the least luck with the bras fitting properly, but the great style won her over.
CINDY: As much as she loved the fit and style, the price tags gave her pause.
These bras are so pretty, and they definitely give you that extra notch of sex appeal, but we were disappointed by the limited size range, especially the band sizes. If Graham wants to compete with big brands like Lane Bryant, she'll need to go up to 48 and 50 size bands.
One thing is unanimous though, the racy styles and harnesses are on par. Keep those sexy queen bra designs coming, Graham!
