Ashley Graham is body and body-confidence #goals all rolled into one.

For every positive comment on her many Instagram bikini snaps, there are a heap of offensive retorts from internet trolls, and it seems the model has had enough. Last night she hit back at one comment in particular, posting the most perfectly crafted response we’ve seen in a while.

“Someone once told me my thighs were ‘cellulite city.’ But I now realize these thighs tell a story of victory and courage,” the 28-year-old wrote.

“I will not let others dictate what they think my body should look like for their own comfort, and neither should you. #beautybeyondsize”

To really drive her point home, Ashley posted her comeback alongside a collage of three unairbrushed pics, each showing her looking downright fabulous in a black one piece, cellulite and all.

The size-18 model landed her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover in March of this year, and also appeared on Maxim‘s April issue. But despite her rising status, she says she feels no pressure to conform to fashion’s unhealthy ideals of thinness.

“There are also women who are getting thinner and thinner. I don’t promote anorexia or obesity. I promote health. And healthy at whatever size your body needs to be,” she told Elle last year.

Words to live by.
