The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition is a huge thing every year, and this year is no exception. In the past thinner models have been the center of attention but this year SI is changing it up!
They have "curvy" girl Kate Upton on THREE different covers!
Now this isn't Kate's first time on the cover nor is it the first time a "curvy" girl has been featured. Last Year curvy model Ashley Graham was on a cover and looked amazing!
The big kicker is that inside the magazine they feature adds and other models that have a thicker frame (cause ain't nothing wrong with that!). The adds are for Ashley Graham's swim line and feature a thin, curvy and older model totally rocking the swimwear!
They also have an add that showcases a curvy model in a bikini from Lane Bryant, proudly showing off her stretch marks.
I think that this is a huge step not only for SI/models/advertising but it's a huge step for women. Being a curvy girl myself it was hard growing up with images of girls much smaller then me. But I've learned to accept my curves and now I love them and they way I feel in my own skin!
So bravo SI on the addition of these very different but all amazingly beautiful women!
