Mia Kang eats. “I’m a size 4-6, I’m sane and healthy, and I have self-confidence for the first time in my life,” the model tells Yahoo Style. When I was 13, I cut my weight in half — I stopped eating,” she tells Yahoo Style.
When Ashley Graham first graced the pages of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2015, she was modelling plus size swimwear for an advertisement (the first plus-size ad to ever run in the issue) —who knew that she’d land the sought-after cover a year later? Graham has essentially paved the way for other plus-size models to flaunt their curves in the world-renowned magazine. This year, curvy model Denise Bidot will proudly show her stretch marks in a groundbreaking, unretouched Lane Bryant swimsuit ad to be featured in the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
