Once a month I will now feature a different plus-size model that I love and find inspirational. I couldn’t think of anyone better than Tiffany Bank to kick it off! She is outstanding and has truly pushed the standards of just what a plus-size woman can do in the fashion industry. Beyond her career, she is very friendly and actually communicates with her fans. So for January, Ms. Tiffany Bank is my model of the month.
Name: Tiffany Bank
Dress/Pant Size: 18
Location: New York City, New York
You probably know her from her hit reality mini-series on TLC’s “Big Sexy” where 4 other plus-size women and Tiffany showed the world what being plus-size is really like. They were all involved in the fashion industry in some aspect, Tiffany being a model, and allowed the cameras to follow them through their daily lives of working, dating and having fun.
She has worked with brands such as Eloquii, Liz Claiborne and DKNY to name a few. Not only does she do print work but also campaigns, fit modeling (which is where a designer uses the model to check the fit/look of their pieces), runway and catalog. Tiffany has walked for big names like Monif C. and Lane Bryant, to department stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdales.
Beyond just modeling, Tiffany is also a contributing writer for the one and only PLUS Model Magazine. She also is a regular speaker at Bernard College of Columbia University.
Tiffany has also appeared on several TV shows like 30 Rock, Rip The Runway, and The Tyra Bank Show and likes to host shows as well. You may have even spotted her in Sex And The City 2 and Man On A Ledge!
Fun fact, Tiffany can speak fluent Armenian!
