"#fierceyovacation continues with a #LayDownBootyTooch," she wrote alongside a picture of herself in a tiny black bikini while wearing sunglasses and laying outside on the beach. "Let's be real: My butt is SO much bigger than this. But this angle makes it look smaller. #DontLetTheAngleFoolYou," she added.

Indeed, Banks has admitted she doesn't believe in diets and likes a fuller body. "To me, it's like, I lost weight a couple of years ago and that just changed the way I ate, it changed the way I thought. I actually got too thin because I have tunnel vision," she told Us Weekly in August at a private screening and fashion show for her new cycle of ANTM.

"So when they said this is what you have to do, I was too strict, and I realized I needed to cheat way more because it didn't look good. I didn't realize I was too thin until I started seeing pictures and I thought, 'Oh, I don't like that. That doesn't look good.' I need some ass," she added.

"I was at the height of my success when I was at my biggest," she admitted. "So then I go, 'Why am I shedding weight for press when, like, I told the world to kiss my fat ass and had Emmys and Top Model was at its peak and I was on Time magazine's top influential people two times in a row -- all with a big ass!"
