ROBYN LAWLEY IS THE FIRST CURVY MODEL IN SI SWIMSUIT HISTORY
Sports Illustrated is known for many amazing things: beautiful girls, big tits, Chrissy Teigen, and to die for bathing suits (f***, is it summer yet?). This year, they decided to surprise us with one more necessary addition: its first plus size model, Robyn Lawley. Robyn has already proven to be amazing; she designs her own line of swimwear, is a strong advocate for healthy body-image, posed flawlessly nude with bunnies for the Size Does Matter project, and is now blurring the boundaries of swimsuit editorials. Honestly, it’s a no-brainer that she’s in the SI Swimsuit Issue.
In a recent interview with NY Mag, she explains that she does not identify herself as a plus size model: “I like ‘curvy.’ Unfortunately, I have to be differentiated for castings. SI never once called me a plus-size model.” This is exciting for all of the women out there, especially the bootylicious ladies who are bigger than a size 2 and proud of it. We are so stoked to see models who are beautiful inside and out, like Robyn, thrive and push societal limits! High five girl, you are killing it.
