Answering a Reader Question #348
Hi! I'm Michaela.
I am currently in the process of signing on with Elite in July.
I'm 15, And I understand you have to be 18+ to model for Victoria Secret, as well as America's ext Top model, but can you tell me If I have the right requirements?
HEIGHT: 5' 11
Hi, Michaela! Congrats on signing with Elite soon...that is amazing! Based on your stats--and the fact that Elite is interested in you--I'd say you definitely have what it takes as far as requirements. You are very busty, compared to traditional standards, but if Elite is okay with your chest size, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. It all depends on how they envision marketing you and what projects they think you'd be ideal for. Of course once you turn 18, your bust size will definitely be suitable for VS, lol.
Be mindful of your hips as well...34 inches is the standard and the largest most agencies will allow you to be is 35 inches. But like I said before, if Elite is interested in you now and haven't made any comment on your hips, I think it's safe to say you've got the green light. I wish you the best of luck with Elite!
