ANTM Whitney Thompson May 18, 2008

Filed under: Celebrities,In the News — FattieGossip @ 6:20 pm

Whitney Thompson is the first winner of “America’s Next Top Model” who’s considered a plus-size model. She’s certainly a gorgeous girl, but not hardly plus-size at a size 8. In any case, she seems to be determined to flaunt her body as is, and not succomb to any pressure to lose the weight for an assumingly more successful modeling career. She simply says if one modeling agency tells her to lose weight, she’ll move on to the next agency.

And with her newly won title, Whitney sees  an opportunity to spread her message on body image.

“I have a 13-year-old cousin who’s so much like me it’s uncanny,” she says. “She’s completely normal-size but she says, ‘Oh, I’m so fat’,” and I’m like, ‘No, you’re not and why would you ever say that.’

“I have the purpose and drive and I’m trying to change the face of fashion and society,” she says. “It starts with a single step.”

    Her measurements are 36″-32″-43″ (US), per her profile at Elite. Which would make her about a 14/16 dress size. (Saks Fifth Ave. Women’s General Sizing Guide used for reference)

    Personally, I couldn’t care less about what size, shape, colour, how high her hair is or otherwise. It’s her sizist attitude that I take issue with. If she is going to take the mantle of role model for size acceptance, then she needs to be accepting of ALL SIZES.

    it is good the she stands up to her ideals.NO one can tell her otherwise…she has a very voluptuous body and a sexy face.

  3. Well, at least she’s got a few curves and looks more like a normal woman that those stick thin models that are always on the catwalks. Maybe it’s the start of something big?!
