My name is Trudi Tapscott, and fashion modeling has some very specific physical requirements. And I say that, that you do have to be a certain height, and you do have to be, I would not necessarily say weight, but I would say a certain measurement shape. You need to fit clothes that are designed by a designer, and modeling is a job, so there are specifics. Just like sports, just like anything else, there is a physical form that you need in order to sell designer clothes. The requirements are preferably 5'9" and taller. Measurements, 34 or 35 hip, sample size, which is changing. Sometimes it's a little smaller than it should be, depending upon the brand and the designer. So, you need to have measurements that are pretty much 34-24-34. That varies. A girl who is 5'9" is going to have a different sizing, different shape, different proportions than a girl who is 5'11". But, the range is between 5'9" up to 6 feet. There are girls who are taller than 6 feet. It does make it more difficult. Sleeves are shorter, pants are shorter, but that's pretty much it. There are exceptions to every single rule, and those kinds of requirements are for New York, Paris, Milan, London, big markets were modeling is a career. Sometimes in smaller markets, there is a generosity and a little bit of leeway in terms of what clients are looking for, because it's a different kind of modeling. And when I say there are exceptions to every rule, there are models who have modeled and have had great careers who are 5'7", 5'8", but your best chances are 5'9" and taller.

I’m 4’ 11’’ & a 1/4 of an inch- 23 & 1/2 in. waist, 28 in. bust, 25 & 1/2 in. hips, 35 in. from hips to feet, 25 & 1/2 in. from head to hips. I don’t exactly know what all these measurements mean but their all in the 20’s to 30’s range. Also btw I’m 10 so I’m probably going to grow quite a few inches. Edit: ooh and also im size 6.5 - 7 for women’s shoes. Also I’m pretty sure I’m an xxs/xs for women’s clothing & a l/xl for girls clothing. Idk why I’m taking all this time to write all of this.

Ooh also for anyone using the metric system here’s the following numbers in centimeters: 150.5 (height) 59.7 (waist) 71.1 (bust) 64.8 (hips) 88.9 (from hips to feet) 64.8 (from head to hips) 23 (shoe size- 6.5) 23.5 (shoe size- 7)

I’m 13 and I’m skinny. I’m 5’4 I think and I’d love to do modelling but I really doubt I’ll be that tall probably max about 5’7 and also another problem is I feel I’m way to ugly. I’m not saying that to get compliments and shot cos I’m not like that but I genuinely think im not pretty enough but maybe when I’m 17 or something my skin will clear up and I’ll look prettier in general

Bella Rodriguez dietary (milk and bread often) and reach and jumping(trampoline) exercise, one can out do thier parents height by far, I've seen it with my neighbours short parents,thier kids on bread toast sandwiches and milk and on thier trampoline daily till sundown ,helps builds height and energy over the years I've seen they r both three to four heads taller then thier parents, so not everything is impossible, I thinks these r snacks bread and spreads and milk and they still have regular meat meals, or leg surgery Europe can gain up to four inches with minimal scaring but do ur research recovery time and all lols, but wat ever ur height healthy is better then being a girraf Lols if ur too talk how will u fit into a car lols, and beauty is in eye of beholder no one perfect not even models vs model's, i love Taylor swift look but even she is not model material in some ways im sure lols lifes 100yrs short so always have a back up hobby carreer plan along side ur other hopes and independent money making dreams lols peace all :-) b kind to one another "kind group squad we always got ur back "

For all the people who are saying stuff like : im 13 and 5'3 can i still be a model? It also depends on you're face !!! I have a very very irregular face as in my jaw in flat. Im 5'5 have 33.5 bust a 25 waist and a 35 hip, i have the ideal measurements and all but im 5'5 if i get to 5'7 i'll be good to go. If i didin't have my special face i would have to be like 5'9. So it dosent just matter how tall you are , well not completely. Its a great thing if you have a special feature about you, like a flat jaw , special hair , simetrical face , personality ect.... You can ask me questions and ill be happy to reply ! Edit: if you want to know wether or not you'll grow foot size is a big factor ....you don't see girls who are 6'4 with size 6 shoes am i right? But you CAN have a size 11 shoe and be 5'5 ...just sayin

if your 5,8 and a half can you still runway model
ashante (6 months ago)
Yes, but you'll have to find a way for the casting director to overlook that. Usually if you have a strong personality, they may take a chance on you.

im 14 in a few days, 5'7, 128lbs, i think i could lose some weight and get in shape but is my height okay? i have the measurement requirement at around 34-24-35
Perezosa IMVU (2 years ago)
I'm 5'9, and I in my past I have weighed around 115-123 which is extremely underweight. But I feel amazing, and energized. I don't feel weak at all! I've never had problem with my weight. But what have always bothered me were the body measurements. My breasts are tiny which allows my to fit into most clothing: 31 (B cup) My hips are quite small which allows me to fit into many pants: 30-32 But my waist has always bothered me. I've looked up multiple of model meausurements and their waists have to be smaller. All of the modeling measurements were all between 22-24. Mainly 22. Mine is barely 25. But since my body is so small, I think that I look SUPER SMALL. And other people think I look SUPER SMALL. And I've ALWAY wanted to be a model. I dreamed about it as a child, and everything. I feel as if I emailed a modeling agency If they see my Measurements they'd just say "forget it" and move on. I don't want to do waist training or remove a few ribs to get the desired look that a modeling agency really wants. I want to be myself, but how can I when i'm relying on their judgement. Am I simply overreacting? Should I persue my dream of being a model or should I just give up because I'm simply too fat?
Monica Geller (2 years ago)
Perezosa IMVU be a model
Rennie Lin (2 years ago)
omg SAME. I'm 5'9 and wieghed literlly the same as you! I'm tall and very skinny. I don't feel weak or unenergized, and I eat a lot! Just focus on your exercise on your core muscles you have big chance sista
Stefanie Rene (3 years ago)
if the average height for a women is 5'6-5'7 and the average size is a size six why dont designers make clothes for the majority of body types instead of a select few who often have eating disorders?
Dark (8 months ago)
Firstly, the average height for a woman is 5'4. Modeling is supposed to be far from reality, it's supposed to be better than average. I'm 5'9 and 120 lbs but do not have an eating disorder. Just because you're thin doesn't mean you have an eating disorder.

Because fashion sales fantasy not reality.

potato fam (1 year ago)
monia omar it depends, there's a stage in puberty where you gain weight and have a tremendous growth spurt, how much you will grow in that period is unknown and many cases have people being much taller than their parents or much shorter so there's a chance you will grow, I can only give you that

Alivia Hanlin (3 years ago)
I'm 11 5'5 and 95 lbs. could I make it?
Paris Doesstuff (2 years ago)
Alivia Hanlin if you're 11 and already 5,5 you still have a lot of time to grow!:) when you're 14 or 15 you'll be ready:)
Grace Beard (3 years ago)
What you weigh doesn't count for anything, because our bodies carry weight in different ways. So you could be 5'7 and 130lbs and someone else is exactly the same height and weight yet they have a completely different body type than you. When people say 'how much you weigh is just a number' they're completely right. Don't fret just because you weigh more than a friend, it's completely normal.
Jazmine Brisker (3 years ago)

Joanne the Scammer (3 years ago)
Well it depends on your parents and you family. Ask your parents or Guardian how tall they are and maybe it'll give you an idea. Your a little short of thirteen, I was probably 5'4 when I was thirteen. I have been tall my whole life until middle school when there were several other kids who were taller than I was. I'm 14 and 5'5 now so I may or may not grow anymore I hope and pray that I do!!

Sadly, very unlikely especially with a weight of 200lbs, you weight is probably not distributed properly.
