Ashley Graham struck a pose with her younger sister Abigail for a heartwarming Swimsuits For All campaign that was inspired by their childhood photos.
In honor of her latest limited-edition capsule collection with the brand, the 31-year-old model stars alongside Abigail, 25, in her ‘Growing Up Graham‘ campaign, which is a celebration of sisterhood.
As part of the playful beachside shoot in Punta Cana, the two siblings recreated pictures from their childhood — all while modeling Ashley’s sizzling swimsuit designs.

Getting dirty: The model didn’t mind rolling in the sand while showing off her floral two-piece
A long time partnership: Ashley has been working with Swimsuits For All since 2015
Motivation: Ashley created her own swimwear line because she couldn’t find ‘sexy’ and ‘supportive’ bikinis in her size
Goal: Ashley wants other designers to realize the ‘curve industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and that more people should get involved’
The two even wore goofy swim goggles to recreate an underwater shot that was taken decades ago.
This isn’t the first time Ashley has starred alongside a family member for one of her campaigns. Just last year, she had her mother Linda Graham show off her figure in a bikini for an exotic Swimsuits For All campaign shoot in Morocco.
Ashley more recently joined actress Sherri Shepherd, Sports Illustrated rookie Tara Lynn, plus-size model Emme, and male influencers Kelvin Davis, Bruce Sturgell, Zach Miko, and Najee Fox in Swimsuits For All’s co-ed ‘Every.Body.Counts.’ campaign
‘We know that women’s bodies are historically more judged and scrutinized, but we also recognize that men are subject to those pressures as well,’ Ashley told Us Weekly.

Ashley has been working with Swimsuits For All since 2015, and she recently opened up about her desire to design pieces for women with curves.
‘I didn’t have sexy, supportive lingerie that I could find for my size,’ she told Vogue Australia. ‘And same goes with bikinis, I wanted little tiny string bikinis and nobody wanted to make them for my curvy-a** body, so I did it!’
‘I think what it does is it opens up the eyes to designers also and says, “Oh wow, if she’s making these clothes, lingerie, and swim and they’re selling out, then what does that mean?” Well, it means that the curve industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and that more people should get involved.’
