Ashley Graham : Plus-Size Model

Ashley Graham Swimsuit Issue 560x372Yesterday we brought you a gallery of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, Hannah Davis. Today we’re going in a different direction, highlighting a model who has received even more buzz for her inclusion in the issue. Meet plus-size model Ashley Graham (Instagram), who reportedly will appear in the above advertisement within the pages of the Swimsuit Issue. The 27-year-old model is a size 14 and has been very vocal about the need for the media to embrace curves.

It’s no secret that Americans are getting larger, and the days of skinny mini models may be behind us. Kate Upton and Charlotte McKinney are two of the hottest models of the day, and they clearly aren’t getting paid for being waifishly thin. So while Meghan Trainor is bringing booty back, Ashley Graham is breaking ground by bringing her thick body to the pages of SI. We’ve put together a forty image gallery of the curvy beauty below for your viewing pleasure. You may not want to admit it, but she’s got all the right junk in all the right places.
