As ‘Sports Illustrated’s first plus-size model, Robin Lawley is truly making history. The size 12 bombshell is a revolutionary role model and her steamy spread in the highly-anticipated swimsuit issue is so sexy. See a sneak peek here!
Hannah Davis might be on the cover of the 2015 swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, but Robyn Lawley, 25, will be garnering the most attention when the issue is released. Robyn is the curviest model to be featured in the official pages of the magazine’s annual swimsuit edition, and she is eager to make an impactful splash on millions of women around the world.

After discovering the big news, the Australian native was so overwhelmed with joy, according to TIME.
Robyn has modeled for Ralph Lauren and graced the cover of Vogue Italia, but donning a bathing suit for a SI photo shoot will likely inspire women of all shapes and sizes.
“I don’t know if I consider myself as a plus-size model or not. I just consider myself a model because I’m trying to help women in general accept their bodies,” Robyn said, according to TIME.

In fact, during her Nov. 3 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Robyn revealed that the fashion industry needs to change. SI must have been listening.
While on TV, Robyn also criticized the “thigh gap” trend and even told Ellen DeGeneres that she had been called a “pig” and “hefty”. How ridiculous! This woman is stunning.
Ashley Graham, 27, is another plus-size model who will be featured in Sports Illustrated.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Ashley, who is a size 16, rocks a tiny black string bikini in an ad for the magazine.
Robyn and Ashley are definitely in good company. Together, these two could redefine the standards of beauty — one bikini shoot at a time.
