Yesterday, we (and pretty much every online fashion news outlet) covered the Ashley Graham and swimsuitsforall ad campaign helming her as the first plus-size supermodel to be featured in the pages of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition. Although she technically will be the first plus-size supermodel to be in a paid advertisement in the magazine, the model who will hold the actual title of “first” is none other than Robyn Lawley.

The size 12 beauty from Australia was chosen to be one of SI’s 2015 Rookies and she looks divine in an orange and python bikini in some hidden creek that we want to locate.

We’re slowly but surely beginning to see more body acceptance in the fashion industry and  can finally unhold our breath for more representation of all size beauties in the pages of glossy magazines, in ad campaigns, and in the sizing options from our favorite brands. Target just announced its upcoming Ava + Viv line which will be the store’s first brand solely for sizes 12 & up, and plus-size model Tess Munster just became the first size 22 woman to be signed to a major modelling agency. Robyn Lawley is paving the way for curvy girls, but she also just wants to represent for the average American woman:

“I never thought that this would happen to me, so this is a milestone,” said Lawley to TIME magazine. “When I started my career 10 years ago, I had to painfully go to castings and people would look at you and say, ‘What the hell are you doing here?’… I want to be there for the regular girls who are my size.”
