Answering a Reader Question #186

Anonymous Wrote:

Hey- I'm 5'6, have good curves (34C, 26" waist, 35" hips) natural blonde hair and blue eyes. I was looking into Victorias Secret but I am too short. Do you know of any fields that demand models with curves (probably swimsuit) but the height requirement is lower? I'm also 21 and have never modeled before, just kinda curious. Thanks! 

Hi, Anonymous! In general, swimwear, lingerie and glamor modeling has open height requirements so you should definitely look into any of those. There are some agencies that specialize in swimwear and fitness modeling but these are not divisions that all agencies represent. In many instances, models that pursue swimwear, lingerie and glamor do it freelance, which means they act as their own agent and find their own work. This also means the need to have a professional portfolio put together in order to submit yourself to gigs. It's a more challenging route but if you can manage to find an agency with the right division, then you can simply leave it up to them to do the bulk of the work for you. So those are your two options: find an agency with a swimwear/lingerie/glamor division or go for a freelance career.

Hope that helps but if you need more information, shoot me an email: daniadenise@gmail.com and I'll be able to assist you with your specific situation.

Good luck to you!
