Meet the SI Swimsuit Issue’s Latest Bikini-Clad Plus-Sized Model

Kate Wasley is about to make a splash.

There will be more to love in the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The racy magazine has inducted a new Rookie of the Year to join the ranks of Alexis Ren, and it’s 23-year-old Kate Wasley.

She’s beautiful, she’s blonde, and she’s Australian. Typically, that’s par for the course for an SI model, but Wasley stands apart at a U.S. size 12.

That makes her among the curvier models SI has been featuring, like Ashley Graham who made last year’s Swimsuit Issue cover before her equally red-hot Maxim cover.

Wasley will be shooting in Aruba alongside her best friend and modeling partner Georgia Gibbs.

The two have made headlines the world over for their photo shoots due to the fact that Gibbs is a size 2. This dynamic duo shows sexiness can exist at any size.

We’re happy for both these gorgeous gals, but Kate Wasley is the one making history.

Below, get to know the blonde beauty with her hottest Instagram shots.
