Hunter McGrady is counting down the days until the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is released, a release which comes in just a few short days.
Earlier this week, the swimsuit model took to Instagram to share a sizzling snapshot of herself in skimpy swimwear that puts her curvaceous figure on full display.
In the photo in question, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model is rocking a plunging one-piece swimsuit featuring a colorful pattern in pink, blue, yellow, red and orange. Its deep neckline plunges to her stomach, though it boasts connecting details right below the chest area, creating the illusion of two cutouts which put the model’s bosom on full display. In addition, the piece’s high-cut trim comes up above her hips, helping to accentuate her full thighs.
The 25-year-old model is lying on the sand of a beach in Costa Rica, where McGrady jetted off to shoot her upcoming spread, as Sports Illustrated Swimsuit noted. The model is on her side, propping her upper body on her elbow while she rests a hand in front of her. This pose further highlights the natural curves of her body.
McGrady is wearing her wet blond hair swept to the side, styled down as it cascades over her neck and shoulders. She is wearing a slight amount of black eyeliner, which makes the blue of her eyes pop. She also sports light-pink lipstick as she looks at the camera, her lips slightly puckered and parted in a playful and seductive manner.

The post, which McGrady shared with her 499,000-plus Instagram followers, garnered more than 14,300 likes and over 140 comments within a couple of days of having been posted. Fans of the body-positive model took to the comments section to praise her beauty, and to share their enthusiasm for the upcoming swimsuit edition.
“CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOUR PICS!!!!!” one user wrote.
“Looks so real wow,” another user chimed in.
According to a separate Sports Illustrated report, McGrady will soon tie the knot with her fiancé, Brian Keys. But she won’t be going on a diet before she puts on her wedding dress, she said.
“I always say, your fiance asked you to marry them as you are!” McGrady said. “I see so many women get so stressed about being a certain size that they forget what it’s all about. At the end of the day, it’s about you making this wonderful commitment with your partner.”
