SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Curves are back in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The sports magazine made a big splash last year after featuring two plus-size models, one in advertisement and another as part of the magazine’s SI’s rookie club.
Ashley Graham helped usher in the ‘Curvy Girl Era’ in 2015 when images of her SwimsuitsForAll ad that ran in SI’s annual swimsuit edition leaked on social media sending the twittersphere into a frenzy.
Graham is back this year as an official SI model.
“It’s official – I’m a @si_swimsuit model!! This is a dream come true,” Graham said in a photo caption posted on Instagram. The photo shows her posing in a purple bikini on the beach.
“Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves – our voices were heard,” she continued, adding the hashtag #beautybeyondsize.
In today’s Gary’s World, the Bay Area’s best sports anchor and Darya take a little detour to discuss the impact Graham and others are having on the body positive movement.
