Sports Illustrated To Feature “Curvy” Sirens

Full-figured beach babes loom extra-large in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue on newsstands next week, thanks to three plus-size models, one of whom is a silver-maned siren old enough to be eligible for AARP. The trio of manequins with meat on their bones are showcased in a three-page advertisement for Swimsuits for All, an e-retailer that specializes in plus-size swimwear — that’s a size 8 and up in the fashion industry. The campaign is #SwimSexy. By the way, a size 8 is “fat” in the fashion world. In the real America, the average size is 16. Or, as a fashion friend of mine says: the average woman is a size 16 trying to fit into a size 14.
