where there is advertising there are models of all types.

If you are thinking short models can only be glamour models, think again.

If you are thinking brands, products and magazines only work with tall giraffes, think again.

There are petite brands out there, you just have to look for them. Some petite brands that were involved with my book party for "Model Life: The Journey of a Pint-Size Fashion Warrior" were: Sweet Petite's (great yoga pants and sportswear for petite sizes, Lula Lu Lingerie (bra's and panties for petite sizes), Bakers Shoes, great heels for under $100. I do not support glamour models, or becoming one, or being just a tease, very few can translate that into last for more than a few years or make it a real career. Even if you are shorter, if you want more, you have to do the work to find the right agencies, the right opportunties, you have to work for it. Because you can model for lifestyle products, and accessories brands, there is also parts modeling, and more opportunities are found in commercial print modeling. Notice beauty editorials, ads for shoes, handbags, haircare, everything from computers to banks, they are not all tall. There are more print modeling agencies out there than fashion agencies. You have to do the research. Not just short celebrities are modeling for lifestyle brands and products, models of all sizes are working, because where there is advertising there are models of all types.
