The most successful glamour models tend to have a curvy, toned physique and bags of body confidence.
Plus Size Modelling
The demand for plus size models has increased significantly in the last decade. As well as more clothing lines geared towards the fuller figure there is always a demand for ‘real women’ especially within commercial modelling. Due to the bad press surrounding the fashion industry’s penchant for tall skinny models there has been a backlash and brands are making a conscious effort to include average and plus size models in their advertising and shows. To be a plus size model you will ideally need to be between a size 12 and 16 and your figure will need to be in proportion. As with all other types of modelling height, resilience and a good personality will help you go far.
