The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has been getting bigger every year, but what a lot of fans don’t know is that the magazine dates all the way back to 1964 with just one model — Babette March. The special edition has since grown to account for 11% of Sports Illustrated’s revenue in 2009 (that number is probably higher today) and become an international sensation.
For us, though, the draw has always been about the women. In the 49 years that the issue has been published, 125+ female models and celebrities have posed for the magazine. That’s a lot of beautiful women!
