She’s got serious curves β€” and she isn’t afraid to flaunt them in a bikini.

And like most models these days, Graham is also a serious businesswoman, launching her own line of plus-size lingerie with Addition Elle. And, naturally, she loves promoting her line on Instagram.

Graham is also a serious fitness buff, posting gym selfies and workout videos on social media. As she wrote in one post, “healthy comes in all shapes and sizes.”

She also shares the cutest throwback photos. Look at how adorable she looked when she dressed up as a cheerleader for Halloween when she was 12!

Hopefully Graham’s historic SI cover means we can expect to see even more of her on social media.

What do you think of Sports Illustrated choice of Graham for the cover? Share your thoughts below.
