Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Covers

Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

For the very first time, there are 3 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 covers. Normally, I wouldn’t bat an eye at this, but this year is particularly special as the covers are a showcase of the diversity in women’s bodies.

I kept them because, not only did my parents feel bad about getting rid of my favourite childhood toys, but most importantly because I wanted to one day share them with my daughter.
