Just when you thought this year's SI Swimsuit rookie class couldn't get better...in walks Anita Marshall! 

Anita is perhaps best known for her work with brands like Essence, Good American and Lane Bryant. This curvy beauty was discovered by submitting her photos to Dorothy Combs Models. Since then, Anita has gone on to do work with major companies like Macy's and Nordstrom, where she represents women like herself who are a 14/16.

Now Anita is rocking the beaches of the Dominican Republic as she shoots her first spread for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit! Don't miss a moment of her shoot — be sure to follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to see all the action from set!
