According to IJ Review:

Ashley Graham will be featured in a paid ad for the Swimsuits For All campaign. The campaign uses the #CurvesInBikinis hashtag.

It also features Graham in a video wearing a bikini.

Graham stands at 5’9″ and wears a size 16. Her reported measurements are 38D – 30 – 46. Last year, the campaign did its own version of an S.I. cover with larger-sized models.
