So, you want to be a supermodel. Who in her right mind doesn’t? If anything, we want to be part of the fame, and glamour associated with being a top model. The modeling industry is one tough nut to crack, though, as most agents are on the lookout for the svelte and statuesque type of women. If you want to make it big in modeling, you almost always have to fall under that category. Good news is, even plus size women can have a go at it.
If you are somewhat on the heavy side but want to be a model, you should be aware of some requirements. You have to stand at least 5’8” tall, and fall between sizes 8 and 16/18. Your body has to be well-proportioned as well. Good hair, skin and teeth are what the agents look for. You have to be photogenic too.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a model (that includes nerves of steel), then you can start asking around for open calls from modeling agencies. Put your best foot forward, and wow them off their feet.
