Sports illustrated's SwimDaily and Ashley Graham, model and body positive activist, announced some pretty sexy and evocative news this morning via Instagram: 

"It's official - I'm a @si_swimsuit model!! This is a dream come true."

While this isn't the first time a plus-size model has appeared in the Sport's Illustrated swimsuit issue, she is a a full figured sized 16, proving that inclusivity is totally on the rise.

Graham will also be featured in the swimsuit issue as part of Swimsuits for All's ad campaign, #swimsexy.

Confidence is my golden rule. Have you seen my new #SwimSexy campaign with @swimsuitsforall in @SI_Swimsuit?
