Since 1964 the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has been on newsstands in February.
Not this year, the people at SI say that in years past in the winter there was “a gap in sports.” But now, there are plenty of sports in the winter for SI to report on.
So in 2019, they will move the famous issue to May to celebrate the start of the summer season. This years photos were shot on Kangaroo Island in South Australia, and in Costa Rica.
They promise new and returning models. And, editor DJ May says, “It’s sexy but also shatters perceptions while being an empowering celebration of our incredible models.” The folks at SI “promise it’ll be worth the wait.”
