In early 2015, Robyn Lawley became a Sports Illustrated "Rookie", making her the first "plus-size" model to be featured in the magazine's annual Swimsuit Issue. The assistant managing editor of Sports Illustrated had stated that Lawley "had been on her radar for years and is being highlighted as a model rather than as a "plus size" model." Lawley has been in the issue, 2015, 2016, 2017 and in 2018 she also filmed the series "In her own words" for the magazine. That same year she was invited on to speak on the ELLEN show to share her message of body positivity.
