Answering a Reader Question #105
Hi, Dania! I just want to say that your blog has given me many helpful hints and insights into the modeling and fashion industry, and I feel like I have a more realistic view now. I have a question about my measurements, though. I'm 15, a sophmore in highschool, and I have a bust of 32", a waist of 23", and I'm somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7, although my doctor said I would most likely grow to be one 5'8 or 5'9. What I'm most worried about is my hips, 35". In general, I'm very happy with my hips and behind, but would it put me out of runway altogether, assuming I grow to be 5'8? Would it get in the way of being signed by Ford or Factor, New Generation? Thanks for your help!
Hi, Anonymous! Thanks for the questions and being a reader--I truly appreciate it! Worry not, you'll be happy to know that your hip measurement is fine...just make sure you keep it at 35 inches. When it comes to a model's measurements, you can be smaller than the standard 34-24-34 but no larger than one inch in any of these areas. So you are right at the maximum for your hip measurement (my hips are also 35 inches and I haven't had any problems so far). So you are good to go, my dear! ;-)
