Ashley Graham nails the 'forearm bra' pose in her latest swimsuit shoot

It's a toughie to pull off when you've got more than a handful.

Since nabbing the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue in 2016 Ashley Graham has been a fixture in the pages of the magazine, and this year is no different.

For the 2018 edition, the supermodel reprised her role as a bikini star, this time on the tropical oasis of Nevis, in the Caribbean. As well as pictures, there's a whole behind-the-scenes video showing Ashley in action and the brunette shows us why they pay her the big bucks...

As she cavorts on the beach, hands all over her size-16 frame, Ashley suddenly appears in the most supportive swimsuit known to big-busted womankind; the forearm bra top.

And while it's difficult to wrangle the girls and get them tucked into one's forearms nicely - oiled up, slippery nipples and all - the Nebraska native is obviously a semi-nakey posing pro.

On Tuesday (Feb .14) the 30-year-old took to Instagram to show off a pic of herself in a tangerine 'kini from the mag and wrote: "Excited to be in the 2018 @si_swimsuit issue again!!! Thank you to the whole SI crew for making my trip to #Nevis so epic!"

This year's cover honour went to 2017 rookie, Danielle Herrington.

Herrington, 24, is only the third black woman to nab the publication's cover -- her predecessors are Tyra Banks and Beyonce.

"That makes my heart drop because Tyra, Beyonce, they are superstars," Herrington told ET. "They are what you want to be. They are my idols and they mean so much to me because they have the best work ethic and I feel like ...sorry, I'm emotional. But that's a part of where I get my drive from."

"They set a really good example for my generation and I really want to set a good example like they did for the next generation," she added.
