Last year, Ashley Graham made history as the first plus-size model to be featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. This year’s issue features another milestone, a photo shoot with its curviest model to date, Hunter McGrady.

In her photo shoot, which features the blonde beauty in a “swimsuit” that has been spray-painted on (an old trick from Sports Illustrated). The result is that McGrady’s curves are on full, proud display.

See four select photos from her shoot, below:

For her part, McGrady posted some of the images to Instagram and captioned one with a rallying call for body positivity:

“Women, for anyone who has ever felt uncomfortable or insecure because of rolls, or stretch marks, or cellulite, or acne, or felt like you didn’t measure up because you weren’t represented in the magazines–THIS IS FOR YOU! You are beautiful. You are STRONG. You are powerful and together we need to lift each other up and inspire one another. There’s too much going on on this world to let each other fall by the wayside.”

Well said, Hunter! See video from her shoot, below:
