The iconic Playboy brand ditched nude centerfolds in February in an effort to keep the "DNA of the magazine" while also making it safe for work. Now, the bunny-eared empire is upping the ante.

For the first time, Playboy Brazil featured a plus-size model on its cover.

Fluvia Lacerda is shattering Playboy's narrow view of beauty with her first cover.

She announced the exciting news on Instagram on November 18:

It's officially out! All kinds of feelings about being the first plus-size woman to ever grace the cover of Playboy Brasil. But most of all, I'm unbelievably happy and overwhelmed with so much love and support from so many of you! Thank you!

It's no surprise Playboy Brazil chose the 36-year-old Brazilian model for its cover.

She's been slaying fashion campaigns from Europe to Latin America for several years.

Lacerda has posed for Torrid, Fashion Bug, and Kiabi France. She's also been featured in Vogue Italy. In Europe, the mother of two is even called the "plus-size Gisele Bündchen."

She also flaunts her curves without shame on Instagram, where she has 171,000 followers.

There's no stopping Lacerda, especially when it comes to her self-confidence.

That might be why her peers, like fashion blogger Gabi Gregg, are rooting for her success.

Well done, Fluvia Lacerda! Keep slaying and inspiring.
