A model is making waves in the fashion world.

Meet Ashley Graham, the first plus-sized model to appear in the famous "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit issue. She will appear as part of a campaign for a company called "Swimsuits For All."

The 27-year-old model says, "I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know theirs are, too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt."

The issue will be on newsstands Feb. 9.
