Since signing with her first modelling agency in 2016, La’Tecia Thomas’ Instagram following has grown to over 1 million. She often shares body positive messages on the platform which encourage women to celebrate their bodies at any size. However, she frequently experiences fat-shaming on her platform and continues to speak out against the discrimination she faces.
Thomas has shared with her audience that although her body has changed from a size 6 to a size 16, she is now happier and has an improved relationship with her body. She considers exercises and fitness an important part of her life and advocates for all women moving their bodies.
The model and makeup artist walked for Australian label Aqua Blu in 2019’s Miami Swim Week. The label has been praised for breaking ground in swimwear fashion by celebrating body diversity. La’Tecia Thomas closed in the show wearing a bespoke Angelina Alvarez crown.

La’Tecia Thomas is well known for her previous engagement to famous rapper Lil Wayne. They allegedly became engaged in October 2019 as fans began to spot La’Tecia Thomas displaying the large diamond ring that Wayne had gifted her. Unfortunately, the couple called off their marriage plans and ultimately ended their relationship in May 2020. Lil Wayne has since moved on to date model Denise Bidot, who is also a plus size model.
La’Tecia Thomas also runs her own beauty and fashion YouTube channel due to her strong interest in makeup. She has recently started a series called ‘Tea with Teesh’ on the platform to discuss interests such as modelling and self-love.
The 30 year old model was born and raised in the city of Melbourne. La’Tecia Thomas’ heritage is half-Indian and half-Australian.
