How To Be A Plus Size Model?

30 Sep

I received a lot of emails asking me how to become a plus size model??? Since I can’t really email everyone, I thought it would be a better idea just to post it for all to see. There are some really important requirements to becoming a plus size model. There are a ton of agencies looking for plus size models. If you’re lucky you may find a company like Torrid that are also looking for models.

REQUIREMENTS

Height Between 5’8″ and 6’0″
5’9″ is pretty much minimum for larger markets though Wilhelmina in NYC does represent a few girls who are 5’7″ and 5’8″.

Size 12, 14, 16
Sizes 10 and 18/20 are also used, but are not as common.

Toned
You may be a “plus size,” but you may have to be in shape if you model swim wear, lingerie or fitness gear.

Proportionate
You should be in proportion. Your bust, waist and hips should be about ten inches apart in size (i.e. 42-32-42) or very close. In addition, the shorter you are, the smaller your size should be. Someone who is 5’8″ would be expected to wear a smaller size (12/14) than a taller model. It is all about length and proportion.

PLUS SIZE MODELING COMPANIES
BGM
Close Models UK
Ford Models 12+ Division
Wilhelmina
Giovanni Models
Dorothy Combs Models
Goddess Models
12+ Uk

I hope this information helps those looking forward to be gorgeous plus size models. Let me know if this information was helpful. GOOD LUCK!!!

I’m actually speechless right now and I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. I will let readers be the judge of that.

What do you think of Hilary’s fashion statement? Are you loving it or hating it?
