Swimsuit, Lingerie and Sportswear Modeling | Modeling

Swimsuit, Lingerie and Sportswear ModelingThere are different types of categories for clothing in the fashion industry. There are certain opportunities where you can model sportswear and the requirements are different from the High fashion modeling jobs that you might see in Florida. Obviously if you want to get into sportswear modeling or swimwear modeling in the Florida area you must first be in great shape.

Be in Great Shape When Doing Swimsuit, Lingerie and Sportswear Modeling

There is no wiggle room for how great a shape you need to be in. There are so many models in Florida who have a great look. These models have great exposure and are more recognizable, these are the models that book contracts with Victoria’s Secret or book the shoot with Sports Illustrated. Those models represent what swimsuit brands actually look for, and what is considered the exemplar of the most perfect swimsuit girl is the girl that does lingerie. These categories of modeling types is considered very mainstream and you may be able to model swimwear or get into sportswear modeling if you a shorter or smaller or curvier girl. There are no certain height or weight requirements for catalog modeling jobs is Florida because most catalogs print photos from the model’s knees to her head. In catalog photography you may get away with being a shorter girl.

Choosing Models for Swimsuit, Lingerie and Sportswear Modeling

There’s a science to choosing the perfect model for a swimwear, lingerie or sportswear campaign. The client looks at certain factors; are you in great shape? Do they like your look or face? Are you relatable to their product? Can you sell their product? They know which pages draw the most attention from consumers and they know what consumers in Miami will want and will buy, at the end of the day they want to know if you are the best choice for their brand. They will not look at your height so you can get away with being the shorter girl but your body has to be in impeccable shape.

The girls in Miami, Orlando, and other major cities in Florida that choose to model swimwear and lingerie are constantly working on their bodies. These girls are consistent in eating right and exercising on a daily basis.  They go to a nutritionist because they don’t want to skip meals and have unhealthy eating habits; they also do not need to be stick figure thin. They hire a fitness instructor to help them stay in shape.  Most of the time the nutritionist and the fitness instructor work hand in hand to create a healthy and fit lifestyle for the models. They sculpt their bodies into the definition of the perfection because this is what is required.

Having an exquisite body is more important than being the tallest girl in the room. You need to be at least five foot seven but that depends on the photographer and the brand and whether they love your look. As previously stated you could be the shorter girl but if you an incredible body and they think that you are a great fit for the brand you will land the booking. Exceptions in this part of the industry are made all the time but only if you prove to be exceptional. To be exceptional you must perfect how well you perform your job and make sure to be in impeccable shape.
