TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - It has long been Ashley Graham's
dream to create her own lingerie line to share her passion for sexy
lingerie with her fan base creating a seductive line of lingerie that
is a fusion of "affordable sexy luxury" with "incredible fit and

44 C-DD. Pricing for this collection ranges from $28.00 for a panty,
$70.00 for a bra and $90.00 for glamour chemise.
The collection launches November 7th at 70 Addition Elle stores across
Canada and online at www.additionelle.com.
