Nowadays, you don't have to be stick thin to be considered sexy!

As we reported on Wednesday, size-16 model Ashley Graham will be featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in an ad for plus-size bathing suit line SwimsuitsForAll.

This is revolutionary as it's the first time a full-figured woman has graced the classic magazine.

However, it turns out that another curvaceous model will be joining Miz Graham, and she will be featured — not in an ad — but in an actual section!

Robyn Lawley, a size-10 model from Australia, will appear in the "Rookies" section of the publication which will hit shelves February 9!

The sizzling 25-year-old (above) will be wearing a seductive tangerine and snakeprint bikini!

While we're incredibly happy that Sports Illustrated is featuring it's first ever non-sample-sized model both in an ad and in its pages, it's a shame we're even calling Miz Lawley "plus-size" to begin with!

Size 10 is a HEALTHY and AVERAGE size for a woman, especially in the U.S.!

Regardless, we applaud this new age of diversity, and we hope to see more women with REAL bodies portrayed in the media.
