Sports Illustrated’s Plus-Size Model Is Just In An Ad, Big Deal

+

Not sure how this had never occurred to me before, but did you realize that women who are larger than a size 0 sometimes purchase, then wear swimsuits out in public, at places such as beaches, and pools? Really sort of a eye opener. Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue will acknowledge that fact for the first time in the book that drops on February 9, when they’ll feature images of plus size model Ashley Graham. This is big folks. It’s being touted as a stunning statement for women of all sizes everywhere.

One thing: They won’t show her, you now, in the editorials alongside the actual models, haha, of course not. It’s actually just an ad for something called SwimsuitsForAll.

But, still, the fact that a magazine is taking the brave stance and allowing a business concern to purchase an ad in their magazine is still pretty important stuff, right?
