Plus Size Models Recreate Sports Illustrated’s Topless Swimsuit Cover [Photo]

Yes! Yes! Yes! All bodies should be celebrated!

Swimsuits For All has teamed up with fashion blogger Gabi Gregg to recreate the 50th anniversary photo of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue using plus-sized models. Showing that women have different shape and sizes which makes us all unique.

We love everything that this cover stands for and it’s definitely a start in reducing the stigma that covers the plus size industry.

The New Campaign includes a digital calendar that will showcase a variety of body types. In both the Swimsuits For All photo and the infamous Sports Illustrated photo, the women wear only bikini bottoms, with their backs to the camera.


Gabi Gregg explained to Refinery29:

“I love that were all different shapes and sizes and each are uniquely beautiful in our bodies. I posed next to Robyn Lawley, a supermodel, and still felt happy and beautiful.”

Moshe Laniado, president of Swimsuits For All said this in an interview with USA TODAY:

“We’ve come to point as a society where we’ve realized that there is no ideal woman’s shape or body. Women come in all different sizes and shapes.”

She also thinks that the fashion industry and the swimwear industry in particular needs to break the mold on what models should look like.

We absolutely agree! Women should be able to feel sexy and confident in whatever they wear.
