Sixteen health-focused individuals strutted down the runway during the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Show and one of them was a breastfeeding model. The heart-warming stunt perfectly fits into the company's ongoing efforts to promote healthy lifestyles, open communities and provide opportunities for female empowerment.
The breastfeeding model is 30-year-old Mara Martin. The inspiring woman appeared on the runway with a stylish sparkly gold bikini and her little five-month-old daughter, Aria. The attempt and the fashion-forward approach to its execution, of course, is meant to normalize the act of breastfeeding in public. The breastfeeding model gained praise by support collective Wild Child Education, as well as quite a bit of attention on Instagram. Martin was dubbed to be "an inspiration to all moms."
