A few days ago, Sports Illustrated was getting a whole lotta press for ‘featuring’ a plus size model in its latest issue. But the initial hubbub was all centered around an advertisement for Swimsuits for All. Last time we checked, ads were paid placements. Late yesterday, however, it was revealed that the stunning Robyn Lawley, whose measurements do not fall within the typical size 0-2 range, is being featured. We admit that it’s a step in the right direction…but we really wish it was more.
Being bombarded with this media model fixation was really getting us down. Oh, you too? Wanna see an actual spectrum of stunning shapes, silhouettes, and sizes? Take a gander at this gorgeous spread:
This fabulous shot of bathing suit-clad beauties is just a sneak peek at one of our upcoming style stories, which you’ll see right here on ModCloth very, very soon!
And, we gotta say — Swimsuits for All, you rock. YOU deserve major kudos for your body-positivity and size-embracing ethos. We love what you’re doing, and are right there with ya. There’s still a long way to go, but it’s fantastic to see the strides being made! After all, it takes a lot of voices to effect true, enduring change.
