If you happen to be casually perusing the H&M website today, be sure to click over to the swimwear section. There you'll see a plus-size model, who Jezebel identified as Jennie Runk, modeling their standard beachwear collection without any fanfare. And she looks pretty amazing:

It's great to see a company have a plus-size women model "straight size" clothes. It's especially great to see her featured alone, communicating that her look is just as "ideal" as the smaller shapes that usually model beachwear -- and every other type of wear.
