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.

    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.

    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.

      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!

            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!

      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!

      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!

      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!

    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.

    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

    • The stretch marks may make modeling a little difficult But! I would say you should still give it a try if you truly enjoy the idea of modeling!

    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.

    • Get some professional pictures taken Sam and submit them to some local agencies… Then see what they say. That’s what I would do:)

        Really think I should try that? I did have scars all over my legs which is one reason I feel I won’t have a shoot in modeling.

    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.

      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.

And if you do not know of any, research “modeling agencies” in your area! I hope this helps you find your way!!

    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:)
