HOW TO BECOME A PLUS SIZE MODEL
People think the world of Plus size models is not very different from models who are size 8 or below. I don’t agree, because for becoming a Plus size model you require extra height and an ideal size. Full-figured models are usually between size 12 to 16 and generally 5’8″ to 6′ in height. Check out some Famous Plus Size Models measurements, weight and height. You should also go through magazines to feel how the models look, their body type and how they pose. If you’ve got what industry needs and you’re a photogenic, self-confident then why are you waiting? Pack your bags to get started, plus-size modeling may well be in your future.
