Nebraska Model Makes Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition History

Cover girl Ashley Graham is two sizes larger than the average American woman.

This time last year, size 16 model Ashley Graham was making waves with an ad in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition for retailer Swimsuits for All. From that same 2015 issue, Robin Lawley was being hailed as the first plus-size model in the annual edition’s history, even though at size 12, she is two sizes smaller than the average American woman.
