To continue on this theme of body acceptance, Graham shared a video to Instagram wearing just a bra and undies. In it, she's smiling, having fun, and smacking her bum, as a reminder to encourage fellow mothers to embrace their bodies as they are.

The caption reads, "Posting this video for all the mamas who haven't and may never 'bounce back,' and for anyone who needs to be reminded that your body is beautiful in its realest form. This is my strong, five-month-postpartum-been-pregnant-for-two-years body. As it is. In hopes to further normalise ALL bodies in every and any stage of life." Among the many comments on the post, there's one from one well-known body-positive Instagrammer, @thebirdspapaya, who commented, "bounce forward babyyyyy." Another comment by Chelsea Handler said, "Dat ass."

In the video, Graham is wearing Knix, an intimate apparel brand most well-known for their leakproof period underwear. In early May, Graham announced her own partnership and collaboration with US brand Knix on two different lingerie collections made of mesh and modal fabrics. As previously reported in POPSUGAR, "The collections contain bras, underwear, and chic bodysuits that are made to make you feel and look your best. Constructed of stretchy fabrics that are soft and breathable, the intimates are available in a slew of colours to suit your style." We stan comfy lingerie that looks as sexy as this.
