Plus-sized model Hunter McGrady thrilled her 679,000 Instagram followers with her latest share, a sizzling snap in which she flaunted her voluptuous figure in a striped bikini. The picture was taken on the beach in Bali, Indonesia, as the geotag indicated. The logo in the corner also clarified that the snap was captured as part of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Hunter tagged a variety of people responsible for the look in the picture, in which she kneeled down on the beach with the water swirling around her. She showed off her curves in a bikini top with diagonal black-and-white stripes that looked gorgeous against her sun-kissed skin. The top allowed her to show off a serious amount of cleavage, as well as a hint of sideboob. Thin straps stretched around her back, and slightly thicker straps went around her neck to secure the garment.
Hunter paired the bikini top with bottoms that featured the same graphic striped pattern. The front settled just below her belly button, and the sides consisted of little more than straps stretching over her curvaceous hips. The ties on either side hung down her thighs.
Hunter’s blond locks were styled in tousled waves that framed her face and blew slightly in the wind, giving the whole photo an ethereal vibe. The waves crashed in the distance and swirled around her body, and the setting sun cast an orange-and-yellow glow.

Hunter is fearless when it comes to flaunting her curves and promoting body positivity, as her Instagram page demonstrates. Earlier this month, as The Inquisitr reported, she shared a photo taken while she was enjoying some sunshine outdoors in patterned swimwear. She paired the snap with a sweet message for her followers about embracing one’s body.
