I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a girl with some meat on her bones and a little junk in her trunk. You know, a little cushion for the pushing.. And apparently I’m not the only one who feels that way, as our Iskra Lawrence and Ashley Alexiss features received a TON of traffic.
Honestly, I never understood the hoopla surrounding the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and their skinny twig-like models. Yeah, the girls are pretty and all, but where are the curves?!
They must have heard our pleas, because the 28-year old plus size model Ashley Graham will be appearing in the 2016 S.I. Swimsuit Issue as one of their five rookie models! “This is a dream come true,” Graham wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Ashley Graham’s body of work, allow us to introduce you to her:
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. 🙂
