WATCH: Ashley Graham celebrates National Lingerie Day in the SEXIEST way possible


It's clear that SI Swimsuit cover model Ashley Graham does NOT think lingerie is overrated. In fact, the model and body image activist loves sexy intimates so much that she created her own line of lingerie in conjunction with Addition Elle, which offers a refreshing selection of bras and underwear to plus size women.

So we definitely weren't surprised when the Nebraska native took to Instagram to celebrate what we're sure is one of her favorite holidays. That's right, folks—National Lingerie Day is a real thing and it's as glorious a holiday as there has ever been. 

In case you missed it, our 2016 SI Swimsuit rookie is also all on board with everyone's favorite feminist movement. She revealed during a little game of 'Rapid Fire Questions,' that she's all about the hashtag, #FreeTheNipple, which clearly only makes us love her even more. 

It's been a big year for the Lane Bryant model, who also made history by landing one of three SI Swimsuit covers this year. 

"She's a champion for all women," said SI's Assistant Manging Editor MJ Day. "There's no denying that Ashley Graham brings something different to the table. It's exciting to meet someone who can totally handle this moment, take it, and amplify it, all because of who she is and how she celebrates herself."
