For The First Time Ever, Sports Illustrated Will Be Featuring a Plus-Size Model
There's always a lot of anticipation surrounding the release of the annualSports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue—and it's not just men who curiously flip through the oh-so-sexy pages. But this year, we have all the more reason to be excited about the edition.
The issue, out February 9, will feature the magazine's first plus-sized model. Yes, she's in an ad, but perhaps that means that it's only a matter of time before a plus-size woman appears in one ofSI's spreads.
The advertisement for SwimsuitsForAll—the same company that recreated theSIcover using plus-sized models last year, stars 27-year-old Ashley Graham. The size-16 model said in a press release, "I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt."
Graham recently condemned Hollywood for using Jennifer Lawrence as their prime example of a "curvy girl." She told The Edit, "Jennifer Lawrence is the media's poster girl for curves — she's tiny. There needs to be more education in schools, because that's where eating disorders start. It's not just about being healthy; it's also about loving who you are."
That's a message when we can all get behind.
Graham and SwimsuitsForAll are also starting a social media campaign—#CurvesinBikinis—which, just like it sounds, is all about sharing curvy pride.
