This group of plus-size women were so determined to prove svelte supermodels aren't the only ones who look good in bikinis, they decided to make their own Sports Illustrated-inspired swimwear calendar.
With help from swimwear brand Swimsuits For All, plus-size models Robyn Lawley, Jada Sezer and Shareefa Jand as well as blogger Gabi Gregg were brought together to star in the "Sexy at Every Curve" shoot.
The women were photographed on the beautiful beaches of Turks and Caicos - and Swimsuits For All released the first images on its Twitter page this week.

Sezer, 24, explained why she wanted to be involved in the shoot on Swimsuit For All's blog.
"I think there needs to be more publications and campaigns so that people can say, wow, I look like these women, and they look comfortable and sexy and they're portraying my body type," she said.
Fellow model Jand added, "I actually feel really passionately about this one because I think that young girls grow up looking at magazines, teeny, tiny, skinny girls and say, oh I should look like this?"
