Sports Illustrated breaks new ground; see plus-sized bikini model in famous swimsuit issue

Model Ashley Graham confirmed that she is officially a 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model, posting a sneak peak on her Instagram on Tuesday.



Adding to her success last year, when she became the first plus-size model to appear in an ad in the magazine’s 2015 issue, the body activist and designer reached another milestone as Sports Illustrated named her 2016 Rookie.

Graham has her own lingerie line and has partnered with Swimsuits for All, as well as announcing an upcoming ad campaign for Lane Bryant.
