In the upcoming Sports Illustrated issue, the magazine will feature its very first plus-size model.

Model Ashley Graham showcases SwimSuitsForAll‘s new Curves in Bikinis Swimsuit Line in a steamy commercial released Thursday.

“I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt. The world is ready for more curves in bikinis. Swimsuits For All” helps women feel confident and sexy in swimsuits and I am so thrilled to be a part of the #CurvesinBikinis campaign!” said Graham in a press release reports KFOR.

Many think the model isn’t plus-size at all and the magazine should have actually gone with a much larger model.

The model wears a size 16, which qualifies as plus-size.

Be on the look out as the magazine hits the news stands Feb. 9.
