Whitney Thompson, Panache

Panache

Remember Whitney Thompson from America's Next Top Model? She won back in 2008 and was the first plus-size winner in the history of the show.

We loved her then and we love her even more now as the new face of Panache's lingerie line. The 26-year-old model poses for the retro style photo shoot, wearing a bright purple bra and bikini underwear in a pink '50s style diner.

She dons a fierce cat eye, voluminous hair and a pretty pale pink lip. And in one photo she sits underneath an old-fashioned hair dryer wearing nothing but hair rollers and a bright pink lingerie set.

In another photo she shows off a matching floral lingerie set, sitting on a pink vinyl couch, still with her hair up in curlers.

Whitney's modeling career is about more than just selling clothes. The size-16 beauty has made it her mission to help prove that you don't need to be a size zero to confidently embrace your body.

And so it makes perfect sense that she would choose this lingerie line to model for. Instead of sending the message that plus-size models should cover up, or "focus on playing up their facial features," Whitney encourages embracing your whole body—something we can definitely get behind.
