Quick Tip #3

Category: Clothing/Undergarments
For female models

Ladies, pasties will become your best friends! Random topic, I know, but one that is definitely applicable to modeling. While most women tend to deal with pasties when it comes to wearing an outfit that is not good for wearing a bra underneath, this sticky undergarment is also ideal for doing shoots that involve implied nudity, which can include high fashion, editorial, swimwear, glamor and lingerie. There are instances where you might have to do a pose that suggests you are topless but without actually showing any part of your breast/nipple area. Doing the actual pose itself, however, does involve going without a bra and when working in between poses and setups, having no coverage for your breasts can be quite embarrassing, especially when dealing with a male photographer, guys in the photography crew and/or male models.

Using the pasties is an ideal way of being able to move freely in between setups and poses without being self conscious the entire time or worrying about using your hands to cover up your chest. In a sense you're still topless but because the pasties cover up the nipple area, you're really not showing anything. Having the pasties also makes it much easier on the model when actually posing...you're free to do what you want with your hands and arms and can focus on getting the right pose instead of wondering if anything can be seen.

Make sure to invest in good quality pasties--preferably ones that can be reused. Take good care of them and they'll stick with you in the long run (no pun intended haha). Various department and retail clothing stores carry pasties (Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) and typically range in price from $10-$20. Of course with some shopping around you can probably find them much cheaper but make sure the quality is good.
