Chatting with Cosmopolitan magazine during her cover interview for the August issue, Ashley explained, "I can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry. You thrive on being a big girl, but when you're grouped in with us, you're not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard."
Interestingly enough, Ashley has also worked to drop the "plus size" from her career title, but she says she still represents it. "Just because I'm not calling myself plus size doesn't mean I'm not representing a woman who is," she explained. "I'm giving curvy women a seat at a table that we've never been invited to before—a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful."
