Weight & Height for Swimsuit Modeling | Modeling


There’s different categories of types of clothing
in our industry. So, there’s certain things where you can model
sportswear and requirements are different. Obviously, if you’re going to model sportswear
you need to be in great shape. If you’re going to model swimwear, you have
to be in great shape. The differences now, we have so many models
who have great books. They have great exposure, that you recognize. We have brands that bring them to life for
us, like Victoria Secret. So, those kind of models represent what swimsuit
clients are actually looking for. That becomes the norm of the most perfect
swimsuit girl, is the girl who does lingerie, which is very mainstream. So, even though you might be able to, your
height, you might be able to be, maybe, a little bit smaller, and get away with it for
photography for catalog, or there’s some catalogs that shoot just from the knee up to your head. So, if you’re really good at your job, and
they really like your face and you really sell their products, it’s a science with catalog. They know which page, what consumers buy,
so they know how good you are for their brand. Then, sometimes you can get away with it. You have to be rock solid. There is no wiggle room on how great of shape
you need to be in. And the girls that model lingerie and swimwear,
and I will use the Victoria Secret models as an example, it is non-stop how hard they
work on their body. There is no slacking. Maybe some of the genes come naturally in
the beginning, but they work hard to keep it that way. They work out all the time. They watch what they eat. It’s not that they don’t eat. They definitely eat. But they exercise like crazy. And that is because that’s what is required
to do that job. And so you have to be in impeccable shape. And I would say having a great body is probably
more important than being a giant when it comes to swimwear, but you have to have a
good body, and I would say you have to be at least five foot seven. It all depends on the brand. It all depends on the photographer, the brand,
whether they like you. The exceptions in this industry only happen
when you’re exceptional. And that’s when somebody gives you a chance.
