Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Swimsuit Issue has created history with their brand new edition this year. This time the Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Swimsuit Issue has not one but, three new covers. What came out as a surprise is the fact that all the three covers for Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Swimsuit Issue have plus sized models. Yes, the magazine has fr the first time ever decided to go with real looking models who have plus sized body.
The three models Ashley Graham, Ronda Rousey and Hailey Clauson on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Swimsuit Issue have different body types. This move by the magazine could prove to be a a huge step as many women are insecure when it comes to their body and they dont find themselves beautiful enough because of their size.
Apart from Hailey the cover also has Ashley and Ronda. Ashley Ann Graham is plus-size American model from Nebraska, she has done lingerie modeling for the plus-size clothing store Lane Bryant.Whereas Ronda Jean Rousey is an American mixed martial artist and judoka who is a former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
