After featuring Ashley Graham last year, SI looks to be doubling down on plus-sized models in their swimsuit issue
Yes, I understand this is going to be a hot button. I will tread lightly here. So, last year SI decided to include a plus-size model in the swimsuit issue with Ashley Graham. This year they look to be taking it a step further with Hunter McGrady.
There's a couple of ways this can be viewed. One is, hey they're featuring swimsuits so let's see how they look on real women. If they were selling swimsuits that would make sense. Thing is, they're not. Swimsuit issues have always been about seeing the models, hell half the time they don't even have a swimsuit on.
This is based simply on the model here. Do you like this trend? Do you think it's stupid? Are you a "GO GIRL"? Or a "PLEASE NO GIRL"?
Sorry, but I'm staying out of it.
My body is not wrong. There is no part of it that is not me or does not belong where it is. There is no such thing as a ‘wrong’ body. What’s wrong is the way you see it, the beliefs you impose on it, the labels you attach to it. Your words are wrong-not my body. @SI_Swimsuit pic.twitter.com/ch8tm2ifri— Hunter McGrady (@HunterMcGrady) January 27, 2018
