Sports Illustrated To Feature 56 Year-Old In Their 2016 Swimsuit Issue


Sports Illustrated is about to drop the bomb to destroy all the stereotypes!

The swimsuit magazine is going to feature fresh faces and a whole different roster of body types, meaning, they’ll be featuring not just the skinny women. It’s been announced that one of the ads that will be featured in the mag includes #SwimsuitForAll where a diverse set of body-types will grace the campaign.

Ashley Graham, a size 16 model, is included in SI’s rookie class this year along with VS’ Barbara Palvin and Bojana Krsmanovic. She’s one of the first ever plus-size models to grace the issue. Former rookies include Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Irina Shayk and John Legend’s missus Chrissy Teigen.

Black model and an advocate for women empowerment Philomena Kwao is also included in the #SwimsuitForAll campaign. Now that’s some real empowerment!

Nicola Griffin, 56-year-old London-based bombshell, is also seen rocking gold swimsuit alongside Graham and Kwao, what made it more thrilling is that she is size 14, and there’s her age, 56 and still smoking hot! According to the company, Griffin is the first ever mature woman to appear in the swim spectacle.

It is also announced that Ronda Rousey will also be in the issue with nothing but a body paint bikini. Oooooh…

This is definitely a major shift in the traditional notions of a bikini body, which is long overdue if I may add.

So what do you think about this bound-breaking move of Sports Illustrated? It’s almost summer and this is definitely a sign that you’ve gotta flaunt it, because no matter what size you’re in, you definitely got it!
