Default Ashley Graham for Addition-Elle

Readers who follow the Judgment of Paris Tumblr page will have already seen the following stunning image of size 14/16 plus-size model Ashley Graham modelling for Addition-Elle:

Intriguingly, AE has now released a behind-the-scenes video showing the making of its summer campaign. Ashley's portion of the clip begins at 1:31. The plump cushions of the bed, as well as the padded headboard, echo the model's own well-upholstered physique.

What makes the video particularly notable (an aspect that it shares with many, indeed most making-of videos that show glimpses of the creation of plus-size fashion campaigns) is that in the video footage, Ashley looks visibly fuller-figured than she does in the still, above.

The following screen captures attest to this fact. In the first, the luscious curve of the model's thighs is clearly visible, as is a sensual hint of dimpled flesh along her thighs.

In the second, Ashley's thighs look especially full and fleshy. This is not to say that the original AE still photograph was airbrushed, apart from the usual processing that every image undergoes. However, the plus-size industry still has a way to go before the day comes when, in selecting which images from a photo shoot to publish in a print campaign, a label will consciously select those in which a model looks most visibly full-figured, as well as gorgeous.

Kudos to Addition-Elle for a sensual and size-positive photo shoot, and for selecting a visibly full-figured model to showcase its attractive intimate apparel.
