Ashley Graham is all about body positivity. For her, that is not just loving her curves, but loving her bush!

In a recent interview with Glamour, for their July Sex issue, the model got real about all things sex. The spread included a question and answer section with the readers, where a fan who recently stopped getting Brazilian waxes asked, “Am I the only single woman with a bush?” Graham’s response was, “Honey, I have a full bush. Period. It’s about your preference and your partner’s preference.”

Graham isn’t the only lady out here embracing her body hair. As of 2016, 85% of women between the ages of 16 and 24 said they shave their leg hair, and only 77% said they shave their underarm hair. Those numbers are down 7% and 18%, respectively, from 2013.


Your body hair does not dictate you or your femininity, so rock that bush, girl! Also, be sure to check out the rest of Ashley’s interview with Glamour.
