    Get ready to see Simone Biles and Aly Raisman like you've never seen them before.

    The two gold medal-winning Olympians are ditching their leotards for slightly more revealing attire. Both women will appear in the next Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

    "I am thrilled to include the gold medal-winning, U.S. women's gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles in this year's Swimsuit issue," said MJ Day, SI Swimsuit editor.

    "Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today. Women that are not only elite athletes, that are captivating and impressive in their own professional accomplishments (lots and lots of Olympic gold medals between them), but strikingly sexy and beautiful in front of photographer James Macari's lens. I love seeing them shine in an entirely different way in the Swimsuit issue and being able to share these gorgeous and powerful images with the world."

    The swimsuit edition hits newsstands in February.
