Sports Illustrated has curves! Plus-sized model Ashley Graham snags cover model gig

02.15.2016by: Cherry Liquor

Everyone is making a big deal over Ashley Graham making one of the three covers that Sports Illustrated is releasing for their 2016 Swimsuit Edition, as they should be. While it was awesome to see the magazine head toward thicker ladies when they embraced Kate Upton so wholeheartedly a few years ago, seeing a truly plus-sized model in the pages of their famous T&A spread helps to be ore inclusive of all body types. The magazine is keeping up the trend with one of its other cover models this year, Ronda Rousey, who might not be plus sized but definitely doesn't have that traditional pin-up body that had been the staple for so many years. Graham has been enjoying the recent attention (I personally think she looks like Eva Mendes after a few good meals), who posted the cover to her Instagram recently, captioning it with "Truly speechless!!! This cover is for every woman who felt like she wasn't beautiful enough because of her size. You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to."

And the Sports Illustrated team is standing behind some of these new changes. "The three covers of Hailey, Ronda and Ashley celebrate the new SI Swimsuit," said SI assistant managing editor MJ Day. "All three women are beautiful, sexy and strong. Beauty is not cookie cutter. Beauty is not 'one size fits all.' Beauty is all around us and that became especially obvious to me while shooting and editing this year's issue."
