Give her the cover!
In case you forgot, the self-proclaimed body activist also appeared in a Swimsuits For All ad in last year's issue, which also happened to be the first issue to feature a plus-size model, Robyn Lawley.
This year Ashley gets to share coveted editorial space with all the other "straight-size" models in the magazine.
And, honestly, she looks just as hot and gorgeous as any of them in the first shot (above) released so far!
"It's official - I'm a @si_swimsuit model!! This is a dream come true. Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves- our voices were heard and together we can help me win Rookie of the Year. Stay tuned for voting instructions#beautybeyondsize #siswim"
Yes! Vote your fingers off for her! She deserves it!
If you're not convinced, let the sexy pics of the model in the gallery (above) help you out!
