Sports Illustrated's 2015 Swimsuit Issue is making headlines for all the right reasons.

Not only does it include a plus-size advertising campaign, but size 12 (that's UK size 16) American model Robyn Lawley also makes an appearance.

She's the first woman of her size to ever get bikini-clad for the mag, and understandably, the 25-year-old is pretty psyched about it.

Robyn's appearance in the swimsuit issue marks history, and she's even wearing a bikini from her own swimwear line.

"I don't know if I consider myself as a plus-size model or not," Lawley told Time.

"I just consider myself a model because I'm trying to help women in general accept their bodies. "

Watch this to see the glossy, very gorgeous model in action...
