Sports Illustrated features an Aussie model....and she's a Size 12
Robyn Lawley has just made history.
At size 12 the Aussie model is by far the curviest model ever to feature in the pages of a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Yesterday we wrote about plus-size model Ashley Graham featuring in the edition in an advertorial, little did we know that there would actually be one gracing the pages of the editorial as a casted model.
25-year-old Lawley wears her own swimwear range in the shoot, one that has been designed to cater for curvier women.
Despite all the commotion (hopefully positive) her inclusion in the edition will cause, Robyn is at the forefront of tackling body issues within women.
“I don’t know if I consider myself as a plus-size model or not,” she tells Time magazine.
“I just consider myself a model because I’m trying to help women in general accept their bodies.”
Well done to Sports Illustrated for featuring a ‘real girl’ in the Swimsuit Edition, however next year we’d like to see one on the cover.
