Meet South African model Genevieve Morton. She has been a fixture in the SI Swimsuit Issue since her first appearance in 2009. And believe it or not, she used to get bulled in grade school for (of all things) her swimsuits. Genevieve explains: “The boys would call me granny costume (a costume is what we call a swimsuit in south africa, slang). They called me this because i had a one-piece swimsuit and it was wrinkly when i was sitting. They would call me this everywhere I went, screaming it after me in the corridors or if i cycled down the road. For revenge I became a swimsuit model.” It’s safe to say that nobody is making fun of Genevieve’s swimsuits anymore. Don’t believe us? Check out the gallery below.
