International model Robyn Lawley has recreated the iconic Sports Illustrated cover made famous by Victorias Secret Angels Lily Aldridge, Nina Adgal and Chrissy Teigan.
The curvaceous model posed alongside Jada Sezer and Shareefa J, in a shoot for the brand Swimsuits For All, which prides itself on producing fashionable swimwear for all sizes.
"Each year, the world waits with bated breath for iconic sexy swim images from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, but Swimsuits For All knows that sexy curves bends beyond a size four," said a spokesperson for the brand.
Fashion blogger Gabi Gregg, who also appears in the editorial, says she took part in the Swimsuits For All initiative to promote a more positive body image.
"I think it's sad that the representatives of women in mainstream culture are usually so small because we have such a diversity of sizes in the real world," she said.
"What I think that happens is that so many women see those girls and they think they have to look like them and I know that plus-size models and bloggers like myself are really helping change that."
Meanwhile, Robyn Lawley hit back at critics recently who called her "fat" on social media "because her thigh gap wasn't big enough".
"You sit behind a computer screen objectifying my body, judging it and insulting it, without even knowing it," Lawley wrote.
But the criticism seems to have made the model more determined to convey a healthy body image and act as role model for young girls.
"I want my thighs to be bigger and stronger," commented Lawley. "I want to run faster and swim longer. I suppose we all just want different things, but women have enough pressure as it is without the added burden of achieving a thigh gap."
Lawley said it "blew her mind" how many Instagram accounts, blogs and Facebook pages were dedicated to the thigh gap," and said she'd never change her frame 'just to achieve something that seems so trivial.'"
"The last thing I would want for my future daughter would be to starve herself because she thought a thigh gap was necessary to be deemed attractive," Lawley said.
