Ashley Graham just made the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue a whole lot sexier.
The plus-size model will appear in the pages of the much-anticipated issue, which is set to hit newsstands Feb. 9. Graham will be featured in the magazine's first-ever plus-size ad. (How is it the first time they've had a plus size ad in their pages?!)
The featured campaign is for the American model's swimwear brand Swimsuits For All, a company that you might recall recreated SI's 2014 swim cover using all plus-size ladies.
In the photo, Graham is featured posing poolside in a tiny black bikini, and of course, she looks gorgeous. In fact, she looks so hot, the man behind her is totally knocked off his feet. (Literally!)
Graham 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. The world is ready for more curves in bikinis."
We couldn't agree more. The world is definitely ready for more curves. And it seems Sports Illustrated is too! Let's just hope this ad encourages even more body diversity and acceptance between the mag's pages.
Proof that we're all ready for more curvy bodies:
