Being a plus size model

The Plus size market is growing and models of all sizes are working as models.
If you want to model and you are of plus size here are some tips I found from

Plus-size models are models who are hired to represent the plus-size woman. They generally range in size from a missy 8 all the way up to a size 32W and participate in a variety of modeling jobs including print work, runway shows, and fit or informal modeling.

Plus-size models have many of the same requirements "straight size" models do. They are usually tall (5'8" to 6'0"), have a beautiful face, great bone structure, clear skin, a gorgeous smile, and a well proportioned body. They often find work from their mid-teens all the way through middle age and work in markets all over the US and around the world.

Here are some agencies:
Wilhelmina Models - ten/20 division

Ford Models New York

Also commercial print modeling agencies:

Model Service Agency

Hey Isobella,

Your advice seems quite on the ball and I am definitely interested in chatting more with you about petite modeling- I am 5'5", 34-28-36 and just beginning what I hope will be a long journey!

I should let you know though- one of your links goes to "somethingorother.blospot.net" (a spammy search engine) instead of BLOGspot. Even worse, "PetiteModels.net" which you listed, is a pornographic site. Please, for the sake of more naive and innocent girls out there, check your links!!
