The SI swimsuit veteran initially declined an invitation to be featured in Skims' "Fits Everybody" collection.

Banks appeared on The Late Late Show on Sept. 22 and revealed the magic words Kardashian said to get her on board for the campaign. "At first I said no," Banks told James Corden. "I'm not in my panties. I'm retired from being in my panties, I'm a businessman now.” But after SI Swimsuit 2022 cover model personally called Banks and spent 30 minutes persuading her, she was convinced.
"That's a business woman. She broke it down left, right, middle," Banks recalled. "I hung up and talked to my mom and my mom said, 'Are you crazy? Put your ass in your panties right now.'"

Banks hasn't modeled lingerie or underwear in several years (except for her 2019 SI swimsuit cover shoot), but on Instagram she said it's muscle memory, "like riding a bike." And "the poses came back even more violently than before." After all, she's a natural.
The campaign was for the shapewear company's Fits Everybody line and featured SI swimsuit model Heidi Klum alongside models Candice Swanpoel and Alessandra Ambrosio. It was an iconic reunion of OG Victoria's Secret models that was so incredible that Kardashian had to step in himself.
