With three curvy cover stars (size-16 body-image activist Ashley Graham, badass boxer Ronda Rousey, and body-positive runway model Hailey Clauson) and even a 56 year old killing it in a bikini, this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue (finally) makes a bold statement that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
In this video from Bustle, three plus-size models, who appear in a multi-page ad in the swimsuit issue, share the advice they’d give to their teenage selves. (Spoiler: It’s full of self-love.) We could all use more role models like these, and you don’t need to be a teen to follow their lead. Just look in the mirror and repeat after Graham: “I love you. You are bold, you are brilliant, and you are beautiful.”
