Women Of All Body Types Recreate Famous 'Sports Illustrated' Swimsuit Covers, And The Results Are Stunning

"If you're healthy and you're feeling good then you've got nothing to hide."

From Chrissy Teigen, to Heidi Klum, to Ashley Graham, to Tyra Banks, some of our favorite supermodel women have made their mark on the cover of the Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issues.

Now, "after years of admiring the models on the cover of Sports Illustrated, [women at BuzzFeed] decided to make [themselves] into cover models," a caption on a BuzzFeed video reads.

More importantly, the women featured in the shoot are of all different sizes, ethnicities, and circumstances.

"I don't think there's any representation of disability on Sports Illustrated covers," says a woman in a wheelchair before the shoot.  "But I think it's also important to realize that all bodies, no matter their size, their shape, their ability — if you're healthy and you're feeling good then you've got nothing to hide."


The women proceed to recreate famous covers, including those featuring Banks, Klum, Irina Shayk and Kate Upton, all rocking similar swimsuits and giving their best attempt at the supermodels' oceanside poses. 

All of the resulting photos are uniquely stunning, representing all the women in their own individual light. 

At the end of the video, the women react to their photos and, for the most part, they're quite happy with the results.

"I've never looked like that before," one woman says after seeing her photo. "I wish there was more Asian representation. I think it's important for every young girl to see themselves reflected in the media."

We couldn't agree more.
