In this day and age, it seems like curves are a much better idea than being very skinny. Remember, years and years ago, it was cool to be very slim and have a very nice, slim waist, small, perky boobs and a just a toned bum? Well that body style can move over, because curvy bodies are the hot new item, and probably the most successful curvy model (that you might not have heard of before) is Hunter McGrady.
The 23-year-old American has been named the curviest model to appear on the pages of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit magazine, even though she was wearing nothing but body paint in that shoot. Considering that McGrady spent most of her life starving herself and in the gym, and trying to find agencies that will comply to her 5’11” frame, the fact that she has launched an incredibly successful career by just embracing being curvy is a great thing, and if anything, it should motivate more women to love their bodies regardless of what they look like. Needless to say, she made a name for herself in the world of curve modeling, and became a part of Wilhelmina International’s Curve division.
“I think people think that we can get away with looking however we want,” Hunter told POPSUGAR. “They’re like, ‘Whatever, she’s a curve model. She doesn’t have to work out; she doesn’t have to eat well.’ Which isn’t true. I have a personal trainer, I eat clean. But on the other spectrum, there is a pressure to have the Coke bottle body, to be really tight. Someone’s always going to want you to be thicker.” I think you’ll agree that Hunter has a perfect set of curves, and she’s the perfect kind of “thick”. Take a look through her best photos, compiled by Popsugar, and let us know in the comments if you agree!

See, girls? This is why you should all embrace your bodies because you’re sexy no matter how slim or curvy you are. If you’re still not convinced, then check out this bodybuilder that transitioned into a body lover and is now living and enjoying life so much more!
One thing I always wanted was Brazilian-esque bathingsuit bottoms, I thought they were so cute. After searching high and low, no one made them for bigger bums/hips. I’ve always been bigger on the bottom, I have thick thighs, hips and a butt. I don’t understand why so many plus swimsuit are completely covered up. There’s so many women out there that are and should be proud to show some skin! If you’re not then that’s just fine too! Meet me in the water! You absolutely should be able to wear anything you want! One piece, two piece, tankini, Brazilian, the list goes on. The only reason we don’t is because society says that doesn’t look good and that if you’re bigger you need to be covered all the way up because God forbid we flaunt what we have going for us. I’m so happy I found these from @peaceofparadisecreations she custom makes all of her swim for any size in so many different patterns. This booty is ready for some sun. also who says you can’t wear floaties and goggles and blow bubbles on a hot summer day like you’re 5 years old. Where’s my slip’n’slide? #nowrongwaytobeawoman #peaceofparadisecreations #bodypositive #honoryourcurves #curves #effyourbeautystandards
