Whitney Thompson, the plus-sized winner of America's Next Top Model's season 8, is showing off her goods in a new ad celebrating Love Your Body Day, has learned.

Thompson, 22, stripped down to her birthday suit with fellow plus-sized model Chenese Lewis, in an effort to encourage women to love their bodies.

The model sparked interest after she was named the winner of Tyra Banks' hit show despite not having a smaller, svelte figure that has become the norm in the fashion and entertainment industries.

Thompson, who is an ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, said, "Tyra supports women of all sizes as long as they are healthy. Tyra remains a leading figure in the fight for body equality in the fashion industry."
