Introducing Ashley Alexiss for Lovehoney Lingerie - #sexyisnotanumber
Body Positive model Ashley Alexiss stars in a new collection of sexy images for Christmas for Lovehoney Lingerie.
Ashley has posed in shots for the luxurious new line, Moonlight. Ashley said the new collection was created to increase body confidence and inspire women to look in the mirror and think: 'Damn - I'm hot.'
Designed in-house by former Marks & Spencer and La Perla designer Heather Mercer, Moonlight is affordable, high quality and sexy - designed to make you feel amazing.
Modelled by Boston-born Ashley Alexiss, an advocate for body positivity and body confidence, the range comes in a variety of sizes to cater for all body types. Standing at 5'4 and a UK size 16, Ashley, 26, has become a modelling sensation over the past seven years with her inspirational slogan: 'Beauty Is Not A Size.'
She has 1.2 million followers on Instagram, has graced the pages of fashion titles such as Elle and modelled for a number of big brands.
She has launched her own swimwear and clothing ranges aimed at curvier women who celebrate their shape rather than shy away.
Ashley has been bullied over her size but she said her success was because women can relate to a model who doesn't represent society's definition of a 'perfect body.'
She said: "It's taken a long time. I was bullied terribly growing up for being thicker and am still made fun of to this day. But I realized that this is my body, my life and I'm not going to waste it by being miserable because I'm not society's definition of the perfect body. The important thing is that I'm my own definition, and that's enough for me."
Mixing grown up elegance with sexy detailing, wine-coloured Moonlight is designed to make women of all shapes and sizes feel their sexiest this Christmas.
Featuring luxurious stretch satin and beautiful scallop lace, the collection comprises of a plunge body, a basque set, a babydoll set and peekaboo bra set.
Ashley said the new collection was created to boost women's body confidence. She said: "Every single piece just made me feel so confident. It was great to finally wear something that fit my curves and accentuated them to really make me feel my sexiest. "Women will be able to look at themselves in the mirror and think 'Damn - I'm hot!' "With Lovehoney Lingerie, there are different pieces for every body type, and different pieces to accentuate your favourite body part."
Ashley loved working with Lovehoney Lingerie. "Lovehoney is a fantastic brand and I enjoyed every single second of the shoot," she said. "I felt so confident on the day of the shoot and I KNOW you'll see that in the photos!"
Lovehoney Product Director Bonny Hall said: "We are delighted to have Ashley modelling our Christmas lingerie collection. We love her advocacy towards body confidence and body positivity, which we know our customers are passionate about too. She looks amazing in Moonlight and we hope our customers will feel as amazing as Ashley did when wearing the pieces."
