Meet the First Plus-Size Model in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue

Not long after word got out that Sports Illustrated would publish a plus-size bikini ad in their 2015 Swisuit Issue, we have even more exciting news: For the first time, they are also featuring a plus-size model on their editorial pages

Size 12 model Robyn Lawley will grace the pages of the 2015 issue, a pretty major coup for the plus-size world. To be fair though, this is not the first time the magazine has featured curvier ladies—Kate Upton, who has been on the cover no less than three times, is a size 10.
