We are pleased to announce the finalists and semi-finalists of The everyBODY Model Search Contest! The search closed last month and we are excited to announce our six semi-finalists — three are plus size and three are “missy” size. From this group, our judges picked our top two finalists. We had an overwhelming response to our contest with over 5,841 entries and over a 100,000 unique votes.

Congratulations to our winners and ALL the women who entered. You are all beautiful and we were so happy to read all of your stories! Be inspired!
