Plus-Size Model Appears in Sports Illustrated SI Swimsuits for ALL 2016 Issue!!!!
Plus-sized model sports illustrated SI swimsuits for all issue Ashley Graham, Robyn Lawley, Elle Macpherson and Tyra Banks
Ashley Graham was in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. In an ad. The plus-sized model is one of the stars, a 2016 SI Swimsuit rookie. She’s not the first model in the issue’s history who is considered plus-sized, but her inclusion signals a trend for the 52-year-old tradition. Robyn Lawley, a size 12, broke the SI swimsuit mold. Size 12 is pretty average for most women, but not when you’re in the same profession as Elle Macpherson and Tyra Banks.
Graham, a size 16, was the first plus-sized model in an ad in the issue’s history (and will be in another ad this year). “Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves our voices were heard and together we can help me win Rookie of the Year,” she wrote on Instagram.
