Hunter McGrady is the queen of body positivity. She is open about everything from stretch marks to motherhood and constantly uses her platform to empower other women. And while the SI Swimsuit model has gained a reputation for her no-holds-barred beauty, McGrady admits that where she is today has been a journey.
“In second grade, my legs didn’t touch, and I had a gap in between my legs,” says McGrady. “Some of my other friends’ legs touched, and I thought something was wrong with me so I kept pushing them together to get them to touch. I was so self-conscious that I wouldn’t wear shorts. I wouldn’t wear any kind of tight pants. And it's crazy because in second grade you’re so young. But that’s when it starts."
