Tyra Banks on Never Washing Her Controversial Swimsuit: 'I Have a Good Archive'

The 'America's Next Top Model' host became the subject of fat-shaming back in 2007 when she was photographed on the beach opting for the brown, strapless swimwear.

AceShowbiz - Supermodel-turned-TV personality Tyra Banks has never washed the infamous one-piece swimsuit she was fat-shamed for wearing over a decade ago.

The beauty faced harsh criticism for her fuller figure back in 2007, when she was snapped on the beach wearing the brown, strapless swimwear, which detractors claimed did her no favours.

Tyra refused to stand for the tabloid shaming, and instead donned the same piece in an episode of her now-defunct daytime series "The Tyra Banks Show", during which she put her haters on blast.

"To all of you who have something nasty to say to me or to women built like me... I have one thing to say to you: Kiss my fat a**!" she defiantly declared.

Tyra has since stored away the swimsuit in her fashion archives, but confesses she never actually cleaned the item.

"Oh my gosh, it is totally in an archive. Oh my god, it is so there," she told U.S. show "Watch What Happens Live". "And it still has like, the oil and the sand in it. I did not wash it. I'm like, 'It's gonna stay stank (dirty) and real...' I have a good archive."
