It was just last year, Graham made Sports Illustrated as the first plus-size model to be featured in an Swimsuits for All ad campaign. Looks like the super-plus model upped the anty for 2016. Graham continues to slay and change the game! When this time last year she was featured in an ad for a Swimsuits For All campaign. While Ashley Graham, technically isn’t the first plus-size model to be featured in Sports Illustrated, she is the biggest at size 16, and the first to be featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
