Plus Size Model Info

I have received a lot of emails and messages on facebook about becoming a plus size model. Now Size Fabulous is not a modeling agency and I am not a professional model. What I have done is put together information that I have researched and looked into to provide a bit of help for those who would like to be a professional plus size model. It is up to you as the reader to also do your own research and decide what will be best for you.

Tips to get started:
  1. Get photos taken of yourself. It is best to get professional pictures done unless you know someone that takes really good photos.
  2. When taking photos you don't want to wear unflattering clothing or too sexy clothing. Also the less makeup the better.
  3. Tattoos can also be a problem when trying to be a model. It is better to not have any tattoos or at least don't have them on common places like arms, legs, top of breast and etc.
  4. Research the company before you submit your info. That way you know what their requirements are.
  5. Stay on top of the industry. Always look for open casting calls. Places like Twitter, Facebook and modeling agencies will announce when new open calls are coming.
  6. Watch out for scams. There are people out there that will try you.
Some places to go to for more tips are, and They are usually always current on modeling information and tips and can help you along the way.

I have to repeat that you must also do your own research before making any decisions. Always be aware of scams. I hope this information was helpful and if you have any further questions just ask.
