Answering a Reader Question #199
Is it normal (or better) for women to submit pictures wearing just a bikini? The example pictures, at least on Ford's website, show the model fully clothed. I don't at all mind submitting pictures in a bikini, but I am just curious as to whether it is more beneficial to do so or not?
Hi, Danielle! It isn't necessarily "better" to take your snapshots wearing a swimsuit instead of regular clothes--what matters most is that whatever you're wearing is form fitting enough so that the agency can see your body type and shape. Wearing an age appropriate bikini is normal for most models submitting their pictures since it really shows the shape, figure and health of a model's skin, however. But in most cases it is not mandatory to do so.
When preparing your snapshots to submit to agencies, make sure to note whether the agency websites says it wants you to wear swimwear or regular clothing in the pictures. If they don't state their preference, then wear what you feel most comfortable with. You can't go wrong with either.
