Exactly, the waist measurement is the smallest part of the waist

we do not allow posting of personal infomation, stats,sizes, pictures, etc. for feedback about your suitability to be a model.
Why is this rule in place, and do any threads in this forum allow for this sort of speculation? (I ask because I'm curious about one of my relations.)

Posting personal information about oneself on line is dangerous, and even more so for aspiring models. We have a lot of minors who have been approached by less than legit people ... and it can cost them serious money and possibly their lives. Therefore, we just don't allow critiques for aspiring models anywhere on tFS.


Critiques in forums like these are rarely helpful at all, anyway .... because these are not the people who make the decisisions. Any aspiring model must present themselves to booking agents at numerous modeling agencies to determine whether or not they have the "look", the right stats, and what that agency is looking for. That is how it's done ...


You may ask about the minimum standards for modeling (stats) if you need more information. And you may ask about the standards for each of the various types of modeling ... such as runway, commercial, catalog, promotional, plus, fit, etc. And you may ask what type of modeling is available in various cities ... because most cities don't have any "high fashion runway" work... that is found mostly in the fashion capitals ... NY, Paris, Milan.

Thanks, that makes sense. It just feels weird for everything to be at the mercy of booking agencies (I'd like to think that bookers could be kept on their toes by savvy internet posters). Sort of like if (on some other forum) critiques of amateur actors' skills were banned and everyone was referred to some monolithic organization like the Creative Artists Agency.

Bookers are too busy to be nosing around here looking for models. They have thousands of applicants to choose from already ... wannabes who walk in and or send them pictures or that are referred to them. If a girl (or a guy, for that matter) is serious, she'll make herself well known to all the agencies in her city.

there's actually not a real guideline for thights as long as the legs go well with the other part of the body

Cologne is completely correct ... with only one exception: Fit Modeling ... where you have to be measured almost everywhere and must be within a very small range of the client's standard sizing ... and that varies a lot from client to client. So ... there is still no "standard" for thighs or arms or any part other than bust, waist and hips ... and height, of course.

Miss-V.

1) If your agent introduces your polaroids/tests to an agent from an agency abroad.

2) If an agent from abroad scouts you on-site.
