All the yes: Sports Illustrated is getting into plus-size swimwear
In not-so shocking news, Sports Illustrated is getting into the world of swimwear design. In sort of shocking news (that really shouldn’t be shocking at all) Sports Illustrated swimwear will include plus sizes, baybeeee! Can you believe we don’t have to wait a couple seasons and get a hashtag going to get inclusion? Sports Illustrated, you’re doing amazing, sweetie.
In all fairness, SI deserves snaps for making body positive strides in its annual Swimsuit Issue. Supermodel Ashley Graham covered the Swimsuit Issue last year and Hunter McGrady graced the 2017 edition.
Sports Illustrated showed off their upcoming collection at Miami Swim Week — a perfect opportunity to make the debut. There was something for everyone the runway, a mixture of one-pieces and bikinis in prints, metallics, jewel tones, and pastels. Created in partnership with RAJ Swim, the full collection of swim and activewear will be available up to size 20 and shoppable next year. Prices will range from $40 to $160.
Here are some of the swimsuits we’re most looking forward to getting our hands on in ’18.
This asymmetric one-piece
We’re firm believers that everyone needs a gold swimsuit… or two.
This itsy bitsy two-tone situation is a hell yes.
This colorblocked plunging one-piece could technically serve double duty as a bodysuit.
We’re here for this swimwear-meets-lingerie moment.
We’ll be hitting the beach once the collection drops, that’s for sure.
