Ashley Graham made history this week when she became the first plus-sized model to be included in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition.
E! Online reports that Graham is wearing a black string bikini designed by swimsuitsforall, an online retailer for plus-sized bikinis. The retailer started the #CurvesInBikinis campaign to encourage women of all shapes to flaunt their curves.
Graham said: “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. swimsuitsforall helps women feel confident and sexy in swimsuits and I am so thrilled to be a part of the #CurvesinBikinis campaign!”
The #CurvesInBikinis ad will be included in the upcoming Swimsuit Edition, which will make Ashley Graham its first plus-sized model. Graham, who is a size 16, will share the pages with the magazine’s usual models like Benhati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima, and Chrissy Teigen.
