Ashley Graham is 'sexalicious'

Ashley Graham thinks she's "sexalicious."

The lingerie model, who is a size 16, believes the phrase "plus-size" should be banned because it's causing girls to view themselves in an abnormally negative light.

Speaking to Yahoo!, she explained: "I'm not a fan of it because it's bringing a divide among girls. It's totally outdated and I prefer to call myself curvy and sexalicious. I just want women to understand that they should not conform to society's beauty standards. You should be able to look in the mirror and understand that that is what beauty is."

However, the 28-year-old beauty may be confident in her own skin now but she has admitted there was a time she considered making herself vomit in order to lose weight.

She said: "I had an agent actually wave money in my face and say, 'If you lose some weight, you can get a lot more of these. Put that Snickers bar down, honey.' I tried not to eat for a few days, but that didn't work. I have never actually stuck my finger down my throat. But I thought about it."
