The size 16 model will be strutting her stuff in a black string bikini. The ad is for "SwimsuitsForAll," which is a bathing suit company that believes in doing just that.


According to Huffington Post,

“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," said Graham in a press release. "The world is ready for more curves in bikinis."


Way to go Graham! And way to go Sports Illustrated for understanding the curves are beautiful!

This is the first time Sports Illustrated is featuring an ad with a plus-sized model. The Swimsuit Edition will be out February 9.
