Many aspiring models have often wondered whether or not they will measure up to be a model. Model sizing requirements are not set, but there are some ideals. The industry has some typical size requirements. Male and female models have different requirements. Many of these sizes are to help the models fit into the typical size clothes. Jobs will vary depending on what is needed.
Height is a major size requirement to the industry. Male models range from 5’11 to 6’2. Female models tend to range from 5’8 to 5’11. The clothes need to fit and sometimes being too tall can be a downside. Weight is an issue, because you want to fit into the clothes for that job. While many jobs vary in sizes, male models generally fit into a size 40 or 42 jacket, so you don’t want to be too skinny or too muscular. The ideal female body type is a bit slender. Female models tend to have a bust of 31-36 inches, a waist of 22-24 inches, and hips of 32-35 inches. These measurements help the clothes to not have to be altered frequently. Plus size modeling jobs will have different size ranges.
