Now, it looks like Sports Illustrated is keeping up with the times by not only featuring women of different shapes and sizes but also featuring women with different religions as a number of Muslim women choose to wear the burkini as an alternative to the typical swimsuit or bikini.
Twenty-one-year-old Somali-American supermodel Halima Aden has just made history by becoming the first ever woman to wear a burkini in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
In an interview with Good Morning America, she opened up about appearing in the magazine: “Sports Illustrated is proving that a girl that’s wearing a bikini could be right alongside a girl that’s wearing a burkini. And as women, we can come alongside each other and be each other’s biggest cheerleaders.”
