Height, Age, and Measurement Requirements of Modeling.

what are the model measurements and requirements to be a modelHeight, Age, and Measurement Requirements of Modeling.  So exactly how tall do you need to be to become a successful model?  Likewise, how old does one need to be?  What kind of body type is required?  These are all important questions one will need to ask themselves if they are going to pursue modeling as a hobby or furthermore, a career.  The ranges that will be specified are typical client requirements.  That doesn’t mean you cannot succeed if you do not fit them.  It also depends on which type of modeling you are pursuing.  Keep these as guidelines and remember, there are always exceptions.  (Experienceproject.com also has a nice little breakdown of some Modeling Measurements and Requirements).

Women – Because it is the most restrictive of all the modeling genres, let’s start with fashion models (high-end models typically shooting for editorials, high-end designers, runway and fashion campaigns).  Fashion models have very particular age, height, and measurement standards.  The typical age is 16-21.  Models can be younger than this, but many agencies will require models to be at least 16.  Likewise, models can be older but agencies and clients tend to like their models looking younger and more youthful.   Height is typically between 5’9″-6″, bust is between 32″-36″, waist is between 22″-26″, and hips should be between 33″-35″.  Of course most woman do not meet these standards and that is why fashion models generally get paid the most and work the most.  If you do not meet these requirements, don’t worry, most women don’t.

Catalogue modeling is another lucrative modeling genre that is slightly less restrictive than fashion modeling.  Height is generally between 5’8″ and 5’11” and typical measurements are as follows: Bust 32″-35″,  hips 33″-35″, and waist 22″-26″. Catalogue and fashion are the two most specific modeling genres.  That is why they are the most profitable.

Lingerie and Bikini models also tend to have specific measurement requirements.  Typical lingerie measurements are: height 5’7″-6′, bust 32″-35″ C cup, waist 22″-26″, and hips 33″-35″.  A bikini model will be similar to a lingerie model but with a slightly larger bust size.

There are also fields like fitness modeling, glamour, and plus-size modeling that do not require such specific measurements (check out Plus Size Modeling Requirements!)

On the other hand, whether it be fashion or catalogue, Men are pretty straight forward Height is typically between 5’11”- 6’2″ and men should be able to fit into a 40″- 42″ Regular Jacket.  Men should be fit and lean without too much muscle.  The goal should be to look ripped with your shirt off, but lean in clothing (unless you are pursuing fitness modeling, then go on with those squats and deadlifts).  Men’s standards are less specific and many men meet these guidelines.  That is part of the reason why they often times get paid less than their women counterpart.  If you are a male with a unique look, stand between 5’11”- 6’2″ and fit into a 40″- 42″ Regular Jacket, you have a  great chance at becoming a model.

Now that you know the measurements I bet you are wondering “How Do I Get Started?”  Well, if this is you… check out How to Get Started Modeling!!

And if you find that you do not meet some of the required measurements and are still wondering, “Do I Have What It Takes To Be A Model?” check out the many different types of modeling and see which one fits you best!!  You may find that the genre of modeling you like most is not the best fit, but that another fits you just perfect!  So Get checking!!!

  2. I’m not quite sure if modeling would be something for me, i’ve read your article very attentively, but still very unsure, i think for most part on which kind of model i would like to work towards to. I’m pretty tall 5’10”, 145lb and the age of 18, thought i would still have a lot of work to do to get anywhere near the model type, most worried i am about my weight, this is perfectly fine for my height but i don’t think it would fit in the model profile.

    greetings

    • contect me i can help you for this act you may success in this field the most imported is beautines and hight for this field.
      Regards M bilal. 03476496433

  3. I dont think I fit into any of these, but I have been told by many people that I should be a model. I am 21, 5’3″ and weigh 120-125 is this going to be a problem with starting my modeling career, or should I even try?

    • These are all generalities and of course you should try. Don’t ever let something like this stop you from going after your goals and dreams!

    • When people see my selfies, they tell me I’d be a top model. But then any body shot, I get told nevermind. I’m 5 ft 6 and 180 lbs. No matter what I do, I can’t get any smaller. I don’t fit the requirements for plus size or any other modeling so it looks like I’m just another pretty face.

  4. Like others, I too for years been asked the same questions. My “problems” are that I am considered short (5′ 8″) and older, yet I have no intention of doing runway. I am actually interested in catalogue, fit and fitness and am looking into the steps of geting into those industries. Thanks again for your blog! it is exteremely helpful!

  5. hello I’m 17..with bust size 32, waist size 23.5 and hips 32..but the problem is that I’m 5’5 I really don’t know whether I should try or not..any suggestions?

    • Being that you are 5’5, commercial modeling may be more up your alley. But of course you should give it a try. Never stop trying if you truly want it:)

  6. I would love to be a model. People always say that I should be a model and my response is always, “If I grew six inches I would try to be one.” I’m only 5’1 so basically, my chances of being model are nonexistent. But I was wondering if there’s any chance at all that I could become one?

    • Kathryn and Lauren,
      Everybody in the world should go after their dreams. Don’t let your height or any other single factor be the only reason you stop pursuing something. You never know what can happen along the way. For instance, I had a dear friend who was struggling with modeling, few jobs and not much interest, but after sometime, this same friend established some incredible relationships and is now an aspiring actress (Doing quite well I might add). Remember, God is capable of ALL things, not only some things.

  7. I am 15, 5’10 and 108 lbs, with 30.5 inch bust, 30.5 inch hips and 25.5 inch waist. I’m told by many people (including a fashion photographer) that I should be a model. I’m thinking about being a runway model but I’m worried that I’m not attractive enough. Should I still go for it? And am I too skinny to be a fashion model?

  8. I was wondering if you had any agencies you would recommend to me. I am 13 and I am 5’6”, 95 lbs. and my bust is 30 in. Unfortunately, i don’t know the measurements of my hips or waist but I will find out immediately. I’m looking for an agency that doesn’t have fees I need to pay. My family and I live in Houston, so were looking for a nearby agency, and we don’t have the money for expensive agencies.

    • I do not have any agency recommendations as far as Houston, but my advice is to start searching online for the best agency that fits your needs. This can be done from any personal computer. Once you have discovered this agency, begin to inquire and submit photographs asking for feedback and if they are interested? Do this until you get the answer you want! Let me know if you need more help!

      • Thanks so much! I actually did find that Page Parks Corporation fits my needs the most! I’m submitting photographs as of tomorrow! Thank you!

  9. I sorta want to model but I don’t think my waist is the right size. It’s about 26 1/2. I don’t know my other measurements but I’m 16 years old 120lbs and 5’10. So what would be the right kind of modeling for me?

  10. Hi myself sohail Khan from banglore.I am 23 years old.Most of the peoples recommend me to go for modelling and my height is 5’12 and i have even done a kannada promo of a movie called “Dayya”.I am very much interested in the field of modelling but i dont know how to get started in the modelling field and i am MCA graduate as well.

  11. Hey there!
    I was just wondering what the odds are for me to become a model, since I am only 15 years old and I have to go to school and live in Holland.
    I am 5’8″, 15 years old, I weigh 113 lbs, my bust is 31.5″, my waist is 24.5″ and my hips are 34″.
    Hope to hear from you!
    ps. What do you think the best type of modeling for me would be?

      • Thank you so much for your response! That’s a very good tip thank you :) I will soon send some pictures to modeling agency’s and I really wanted to let you know that this website helped me A LOT! keep up the good work!
        Have a great day!

        • Thank you very much I truly appreciate it and if you mind I have 2 more questions if modeling coaches exist and if I have to pay a fee upfront of a modeling agency thank you I really appreciate it you give me hope and then my hope grows even bigger and stronger :)

          • 1) Yes there are modeling coaches, you just have to look for the good ones or simply find an experienced model and learn from them 2)some agencies require a small upfront fee…typically to be added to their modeling database or website. This Shouldn’t be much more than $100:) Hope this answers your questions!

          • I’m kinda late in replying I apologize but thank you sir! last night I had a dream that I was modeling, and if I dream it, I can become it. thank you greatly. truly appreciate it (:

  21. Hi…. Im 19 years old, female jus want no if i should stop wasting my time trying to be a model, im 5″7 my bust size is 33, b cup, waist 22 and my hips are quite small 29, i am naturally a size zero… What do you think.

  22. I dont want to be a model cause i m not that good looking but one of my friends do
    and she is Really good.
    THATS WHY I SEARCH ON THIS WEBSITE THANKS

  23. I’ve been debating about whether or not I’d like to be a model for a while now, and I still have no idea if I should go for it or even where to begin.
    I’m 17
    Weight: 120
    Height: 5’3″
    Bust: 34, B cup
    Waist: 27
    Hips: 34
    Should I bother trying? If so, what type of modeling would you recommend?

    • The real question is whether you would enjoy it if you did go for it? If it is something you think you would love to do, then it is absolutely worth trying. If you are doing it because others are, or for any other reason than you want to, you need not bother. Seeing that you are on the shorter side, I would recommend petite modeling, fitness modeling, or even some commercial modeling. Give it a try!

  24. OK i’m 16 and i want to try modeling but i’m 5’3 and i think i weigh like 115 and i have been told that i look like a model and have the right look and shape but i think i’m short i want to try it but i don’t know how to go about it or where to start or how to talk my mom into letting me try i don’t know if i have what it takes, also i don’t know what type of modeling i should try ?
    should i try what should i try where do i start how do i talk my mom into letting and where can i try that is not going to cost me an arm and a leg

  25. i m anil .my height is 6’1″. good look, good physic …..i look like a model .i want to make my career in modeling..i am 26 year old………..can i try modelling at this age………what should i do?……….what do u think?………tell me please……..

  26. thanks for your reply…………..will you please tell me what should i do?…..i mean what is the first step.
    ..?……………

    • The first steps are either getting some professional photographs taken so you can take them to modeling agencies in your areas or show them to prospective clients. If you already have a few professional photos, then the next step is to take them to the agencies and see what they say. If they say the need more, get more. If they say we don’t need you, try another agency. Just be smart and get those photos!

  27. hello..i am not much educated . i am only intermediate .i can not speak in English.bit i can read and write…. i want try in modelling. i have good height,good physique for modelling..i want to make my career in modelling……….what should i do?…….please tell me…… .

    • Hello Anil,
      I have a proposition for you! Here at Modeling Wisdom we need a little more social media (facebook, twitter, google+, etc.) interaction! So with that said, in exchange for a great article on how to become a model, if you could jump on your favorite social media sites and say a few nice things about Modeling Wisdom, that would be much appreciated. We simply need more interaction to grow! Check the link above as hopefully this will answer any of your questions! Thanks and God Bless!

  28. These types of things are why girls suffer so greatly with self esteem… I don’t fit any of these requirements (except perhaps my age, 16) but I still feel beautiful! :) if you are reading this and are like me, be happy! Because it is easier to find good people who will dig deep and love you for who you are, not just because you look good! :) And please be happy you have, for example, legs that work! 😀 Even if they’re not skinny or have stretchmarks on them (like me!) 😉 A great number of people are wheelchair bound and wished, even if they were the ugliest in the entire world, they had legs to walk with. So please don’t feel like you’re not good enough, because your so much more than that! :) lots of love

  29. Hey I am 25 , 5’4 wt 60kgs. i don’t know if my age is gone for modelling or i an still try for it.

    • No Jazmine, that would not be a smart idea. You start off slow and build up your reputation. School is way more important because modeling will not last forever, but your education will. Great question!

  30. I truely want to be a model, but the chances are slim. I am just 5’1″ and really want to be one, but is there a chance i could be a petite model. It is all time dream.

  31. I must thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this blog.
    I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.
    In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged
    me to get my very own website now 😉

  32. I’m 18, 5’11, and 130 lbs. I am rather bustier, with a 36c (maybe even D if we’re talking about VS bras). Most models who are 5’11 aren’t 130lbs so will this cause a problem if I pursue modeling? Thanks!

    • This shouldn’t cause you too much of a problem, especially as models are beginning to be “bustier” in general. In fact, in certain markets, this may even be a good thing. One thing every model should do is try to find something that sets them apart from the rest of the field. Do not sorry too much over this and simply go for it. You can do it!

  33. so im told by alot of people that i should be a model. its been said to me since year 8. in year 9 i decided i wanted to be one and mum and me went to a lady in another city to chat. she said my height of 173cm (5’8 1/2) wasnt capable of runway or high fashion. i feel like i could get there because Kate Moss is 5’7 and she managed to get high in the industry. my measurements are BUST: 33″ WAIST: 23.5″ HIPS: 33″.
    Do you think i need a good trademark like some supermodel? (e.g. eyes, lips,face) or do you think i need to try really hard? i feel like this is what i want to be for the rest of my life.
    P.S
    i want to be high fashion, commercial, glamour(Victoria Secret) model. and im 15 :)
    thankyou for your time

      • Hey Maddi!!! Glad to hear from you! You seem to fall within all of the “high-fashion measurements” and are certainly tall enough. I believe you can certainly do this and with some hard work, you will. You can start by getting some professional pictures taken and begin submitting them to local agencies. Getting an agency will be your first step!

  34. Hi I’m 5’9 my measurements are 36-27-38 I’m losing weight so I can be a model I’m 18 140 pounds also want to know if I can do this and get to 34-24-34

    • Hello Queeniesha! It definitely sounds like you have what it takes to be a model. Half of it is measurements, the other half is personality and determination! It sounds like you have both of these:)

  35. Hi-
    I’m 14 years old and my measurements are Hips: 36, Waist : 27, Bust: 32 and I’m 5’8″. People have always told me to go be a model, or that I look/walk like a model. Do you think that modeling (probably commercial) would be a good pursuit, especially it I become more toned?
    Thanks
    Sel

    • Hello Selina!! I absolutely believe that you should go and become a model! At the very least, give it your best shot. You have good measurements and there are many types of modeling. So it may not be the type your pursued initially, but one avenue of modeling will certainly be a fit for you!!

  36. i want to be model could u please help me i am just 21 year old boy looking to go in modeling please help me hoe to get into modeling

  37. Hello,
    I’m 19 and have always had some interest in being an alternative/glamour model. I’m 5 7, 138 pounds, and have been told I could be a model because I have a beautiful face. The thing is I have a one year old son and along with him I got a boatload of stretch marks

  38. I have been thinking about being a model on and off.
    I’m turning 17 in august
    I have an hourglass figure
    I have 38 C or D not sure
    I’m short I think 5′ 4” maybe. I’m going to loss wight, plan to not over that much. I had one of the smallest waists in my fabric and fashion class, I’m pretty sure about that.

    • Hey Hemant! I am going to do something for you.. I am going to provide you with an article that is typically only offered to those who are truly interested in modeling and have no idea how to make this happen. This is a highly prized set of articles so please use them wisely. Here is one of our most sought articles on How To Become A Model!

      We at Modeling Wisdom hope this helps you on your modeling journey!!!

    • hello Jonah…i m 28 year old,i want to make my career in modeling, i have all the necessary tool to make it. my height is 6’1″, good look & physique… i would like to ask you one question..Is 28 too late to start for modeling career ?. is there any age limits for modeling career?……..what should i do?………should i try in modeling or not ?… please tell me…

  39. i am 23 do you think i can still make it i have been modelling since i was 16 but will i make it if i move to new york?

    • Mya! There is no true way to know if someone has what it takes to “make it.” But, Simply going off your age, you are still good to go at 23. Moving to New York is a giant move and only necessary if your truly want to try your hand at the biggest stage modeling has to offer. There are a lot of modeling jobs there for sure, but there are also some of the worlds best models. Try modeling in your hometown locally first. New York is something you try when you feel you are ready.

  40. I’m like a year late to this website but hopefully someone will see,

    • Your dream is not too far fetched Kaicey, You simply need to keep gaining experience and when you are ready, take your talents to a larger market! The other option is to ask foreign markets about “direct bookings”, these are jobs awarded to you without a casting!!!

  44. Hello I’m 16 with bust size 34, waist size 25, and hip size 32.5 but I’m 5’6. Is my height ok? What kind of modeling should I do?

    • Hello Hannah! Since you are 16, you may just need to grow a bit:) Everything looks good, but another inch or two in height would help. Otherwise, you can still do commercial, petite, and or fitness modeling! There are always ways to make it work.

  45. I would love to model. I’m 5’9-5’10, and only 15 years old. I’m very lean but I have strong legs from playing club soccer for 7 years. I have a flat stomach and very small arms though. Should I consider it still or? I don’t even know where to start. Please help!

And I can’t do it right now since I have next to no clue about how to be a model. Almost everything I read seems to be in battles or circles. Hope you could help me somehow and I’m also very shy. Oh well, I guess modeling is not for me in the first place after. Shouldn’t have bothered.

    • Hey Franco!
      The best thing to do now is get some photos and submit them to some local modeling agencies… If you already have some professional photos, then submit them asap to some of the better agencies that you know of. And if you do not know of any, research “modeling agencies” in your area! I hope this helps you find your way!!

  65. I m 5’6 ..and his is the only prblm about me.except thisi look quiet muscular and hadsome…so i go for modelling..

  66. I’m 13 and 5′ 6″ but still growing! Most people think I’m gonna get to about 5′ 9″ – 5′ 11″ because of my dad and moms height. I’m mature for my age and absolutely interested in modeling. Any helpful tips or articles? Thanks~

  67. I am 15 years old and have been wanting to get into modelling for a long time now. My current height is 5″5.5-5″6. I weigh 125 pounds. My waist is 25 inches, my bust is 31 inches and my hips are 31 inches. My cup size is a 30DD :/. Do you think I could be a model with my height and measurements..? If so what types would you reccommend?? I really want to be taller could there be a chance of me still growing? ? Sorry for all the questions. Thank you for your time xx

  70. Hi, I’m Daisy (14 years old) and I have a dream of becoming a model, when I was small, me and my siblings would pretend to be models and would do “the catwalk,” and that’s how I got my love for modeling, but I feel that I’m to short; these are my measurements, height: 5’4, bust: 34, waist: 24, and hips: 31.

  71. Hi there! Like most teenage girls I seriously want to be a model, like what is better than being paid for being admired? So I live in South Africa (Not much international oportunities) and would like to know if there are any international agencies that would consider my aplication with my looks (eg: Forde, Elite, Storm ect). I want to be the next Candice. Everyone thinks I should be a model, apparently, I’ve got the walk, the looks and drive to make it big, but its better to get a proffessional opinion. So, any advice into what modeling industry, agencies I should look into??

    So, my measurements are:

    •Age: 15
    •Height: 5.8 (probably still grow to atleast 5.9)
    •Bust: 30.5 (really no hope there as most of the women in my family can barely fit an A cup)
    •Waist: 24
    •Hips: 34

    Love Aari :* <3

    • Thank you for commenting Aaralia:) I must tell you, modeling requires strong nerves as you will be criticized just as often, if not more, than you are admired. However, it can be a great way to travel the world and make an income while doing it:)

      Your measurements all seem great and the best way to find international opportunities is to apply to these specific agencies you have listed. They have models all over the world and often work with other international agencies! So try emailing them and check it out:)

    Thankyou,

  74. Hey I’m Danielle, I live in the uk and would quite like to try modelling. I’m 16 in febuary and I’m around 5″5 (I’m not likely to grow most of my family is around 5″3) im a 33/34 inch bust and fit a B cup, my waist is 27 inch and my hips are 33inch I’m quite fit and do a lot of exercise and am quite toned, I don’t know if I’d be any good but I was wondering if you know of any modelling agencies that are free/cheap to join in the west Midlands? Any help would be great x

    • Hey Danielle, Unfortunately we do not know any modelling agencies out there, but you have already gotten the ball rolling by searching for information. Now you must search local nearby agencies and contact them to see if you’d be a good fit!

      God Bless and hope this helps!

  76. I’m 16 & I really want to be a model but I kinda have a lot of leg muscle so my weight is 133 lbs but I have all the right measurements and I’m 5’9. Is weight a super important factor in modeling or no as long as all the measurements are right?

    • Hey Lauren! It should not be problem if your measurements are similar. Strong legs actually look better in many respects than “skinny” legs but it all comes down to How Strong? I would go ahead with my dreams and see if it poses a problem. It may not even be an issue Lauren:)

      God bless and have faith in yourself, God will do the rest.

  77. Hey im not shure if i want to become a model or not im 15 5ft 8 1/2in 33-24-35 and i weigh 112 pounds are those model measurements ?? Also i dont look like a model i have more fat than i have muscle. Can i be a model with my measurements ?? If i can then what kind of model can i be ?

    • Hi Raya! I think you have what it takes to be a model and if you need to, you can always shift body composition around a little bit with some exercise and diet. So if it is something that you desire to do, you certainly can. Check out this article on Can Anyone Become A Model??? Pray hard and often if this is something you want to do and God will guide you:)

      • Thank you for your advice !! Also when someone gets scouted what do they mean ? In order for them to scout you do you already have to be super thin or do they offer you some kind of a program to get that model like figure?

  78. Hello. before i apply for IMG. i am 5’1. bust- 28.5 waist- 23.5 hips- 31. whats my chance of getting in?

  79. I’m 14 years old, size 6/8 (uk size), 32 bust and unsure of my hip and waist measurements. I was spotted earlier this year by a london based modelling agency (nevs)- I didn’t contact them as I didn’t feel it was the right time. I’m always told that I’m very photogenic. I have quite clear skin and I am working on getting it flawless! I have braces but they will be off soon. I will then get my teeth whitened. My hair is straight, long and blonde, I will get highlights a few times a year but so far I’ve had them once. I have very healthy hair. I have blue eyes! I am also very active and workout at least 3 times per week, I drink plenty of water and eat really healthy foods. I can be shy which is why I’m weary of modeling, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I want to do runway modeling but I think I may be to young and short. What type of modeling could I do? Are there any agency’s in London which may consider me? Any advice or tips? Thank you.

    • Hey Katie, thanks for reaching out:) Well it sounds like you have a lot going for you! I am not completely familiar with the London agencies at this time but you can always contact (nevs) since they reached out to you! That is always a good start. Check out this article on the different types of modeling and see which one suits you best! God bless you Katie!

      • Thank you do much janah for your message. :) Your articles have really helped me to understand modeling more and made me want to go for it.

    • I will put it to you this way my Sneha:) If they can do it, then you can do it. They are not special, they just wanted it badly enough to make it happen. So what you need to ask yourself is, How much am I willing to sacrifice to make your dreams come true? If the desire is strong enough, you can do almost anything. Pray hard and remain faithful Sneha.

  83. Hi, I’m not sure if I will get a response but your opinion will definitely help. I’m 178cm tall and an Australian Size 8, however I am turning 20 years old in July. Am I too old to start a career in modelling? I have a lot of experience in photographic and catwalk modelling but don’t have an agency! It honestly is my dream to become a model.
    Thanks

    • I am glad to help you Lara:) Firstly, you are not too old and here is a Simple Layout if you truly desire to find an agency so you can get your modeling dreams on track. God bless you and I pray you will have the faith to make your dreams come true!

    • I hope you don’t give up that easily Chris. You are tall, but that doesn’t mean incapable. Give it a try and see what happens. Something great may come of it. Be blessed and make it happen Chris!!

  85. Hi! I’ve been told I should look into modeling, here are my stats:

    Weight: 130 lbs
    Bust: 34.5, big B/small C cup
    Waist: 26.5 in

  86. Hi, I was wondering, at 5’6 – 1/2, 116Lbs, with measurements of 36 – 25 – 36, and a C cup, what would be the best type of modelling for me, if any?

  87. Hello. I live in Orlando and I am 22 years old. I really want to be a model, I have pictures and everything. I am 5’7 in height. C-36 cup size and about 143-145 in weight. That is all I know right now, but I will look at all other measures soon. Can you help me by telling me how to get an agent? And where I can submit the photos to get a legitimate agent?

      • Well this isnt my first time doing something in the entertainment field. I have done some acting and so I know having an agent is a crucial step. I just always had a passion for modeling so I thought I could give it a try. Thank you for responding though, I was beginning to think you wouldn’t have.

  88. I would really like some advice on what I should do. I have read over your article throughly and I meet the measurements but I am only 5’5″. I also dont have much confidence in myself although I would really like a professional view since I am only 15 I would love to start next year. I would appreciate it if you replied. Thank you

  89. Hi, im 17 now and its always been my dream to become a high fashion model and also branch off into other categories once i have graduated college. My measurements are 34 25 38.5 is there a possibility i can still get through? Thanks.

  90. My granddaughter had considered modeling, She is 5 9.5″ her measurements are bust 36.5″ waist 28″ hips 34″ she can’t go anywhere without people stopping her and commenting on her beauty. She really has something about her that stands out. However, by the measurements I read, she is off for all types of modeling, Even though her look is long and lean. Also, she pierced her cheeks with the “dimple” piercings… what would you suggest. Oh, and she is 18 going on 19 in August. Thank you for any input. My sincere thanks, her grandma, Susan Byrnes

  91. Hi i am Koyel from India.
    My height: 5’4 or a little more
    Age: Almost 15
    i fit almost all the requirements but my height is not fitting the requirements..
    can i try modelling with all these??

  92. soo I’m 5’11, skinny, and have a great complexion, but I weigh 130 lbs which is more than most models bc I have a lot of muscle in my legs from volleyball. is that a turn off?

  93. Sir I am very good looking person.my height 6feet 3inch. Age —21year. Best physical fitness. Sir how to start modeling career.

  94. I rly want to become a model…..but I don’t have a perfect body….I’m 5’7 tall wit bust-36, waist-33 & hip-39….can I become a model….

  95. I’m 17yrs old, 5’10, bust size 32, & i don’t know my hip/waist size exactly in inches, but I fit into size 3 & 5 in jeans, depending on the length cause I’m super tall (USA measurements). I’m 122 pounds. I tried out for modeling once and they loved me, it was through this program called “interface”. I payed over $3000 and they were asking for more to ‘advertise’ me. It was ridiculous, so I waved them goodbye and never pursued modeling again…but I want to, I just don’t know where to go. And also, I’m limited to how much skin I show (for religious reasons) so I’m afraid I couldn’t make it in the modeling world cause I can’t show my legs, or model shirts which show my stomach and stuff. Everywhere i go people ask me if I’m a model, even my friends and family tell me. I model for my friends upcoming clothing company, but I don’t get paid, I just do it to help out his business. What do you think? Where do I start? What about my limitations on how much I show? People tell me I would be good to model dresses & jeans, long skirts, etc.

    • Hey there Maria! Though your religious reasons may hold you back a little, it is way more important to hold onto those than to appease someone else. So good for you for holding tight to those. I wold tell you to give it a try. In the article above their is a How To Get Started Modeling Link and I would simply advise you to pursue it and see what happens. In the end, God will let you know which way to go. God bless you Maria.

  96. i want to be a model, but im afraid that even after i lose the few inches off my waist that they will just tell me my nose is a little to wide or my lips are a little too plump.

    • Mara and Camara, have a little faith in yourself and give it a try. No one will truly know if you have what it takes unless you simply get it going in motion and see what God has in store for you! Check the link above in the article on how to get started and God bless you both!

  97. I’m 5’7
    my measurements are 33-29-36
    If I can slim out a little do you think I can be considered?

  98. I am 14 years old almost 15 at the end of August, and I meet all of the requirements for a fashion model. I really like the idea of modeling and people tell me all the time that I look and have a body like Jasmine Tookes. Would it be likely for a modeling agency to accept me at my age?

  99. Pls my height is very short but my height is 5.2 so pls try 2 undrstnd and I am interested to doing a modelling all of them will say you pls go and to do a modelling becz ur figure is nice and all the pics are my sexy and hot my face is also a very beautiful..

    Regards: piya ghosh

    • Hey Piya! We are not an agency but can help you at least try to get started (check the getting started link at the end of the article above). In case you are having a hard time due to you height, many models will actually begin acting to get started and then try to transition into modeling. This is one option if you find that your height is posing a problem:) God bless you Piya!!!
