NEW YORK – The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue features page after page of beautiful women, almost always a size 4 or under. But this year, for the first time, not one, but two plus-size models are in the magazine. The first, Ashley Graham, isn't really a Sports Illustrated model -- she's a size-16 model donning a black bikini in an ad for Swimsuits for All.

The second, Robyn Lawley, was in fact chosen for the magazine, and is wearing a size 12 offering from her own line of bathing suits for women with curves.
