For decades, the fashion industry has been dominated by tall skinny women, giving the impression that the thinner women are more beautiful than those with more weight. Today, the thinking is beginning to change - a fact made clear by the number of agencies that have been set up to cater for the plus-size model. There is a rise in the number of women who want to learn how to be a plus-size model. Just as traditional modeling is tough, so is becoming a plus-size model. Not only is the model required to be tall and of the ideal size range, she will also need to be in relatively good physical shape.

To make it in the industry, the model will have to be driven and have a tough skin, able to withstand constant rejection. No matter how beautiful you are, you will need to go through the process of presenting yourself to the industry. In order to learn how to become one, the first important step is creating a portfolio. It does not need to be a full portfolio with professional pictures; all you need at this stage is photos that display your natural beauty. The photos should be shot in good light, and should include a face shot and a full body shot. Avoid too much make-up and choose clothes that are flattering without being too revealing.

The next step is contacting the agencies. It is important to find out about the right agencies,- those that are reputable. Checking for the agencies reputation is essential, and the best way to do this is to speak to those in the industry. There are always those agencies that are considered to be the top agencies in every city or place. Dress comfortably in smart, casual and well-fitting attire when you visit the agencies. A number of agencies have open calls where they select models. There are bound to be many hopefuls during these events, and it is important to be confident, in spite of the competition.

Some agencies need the potential models to fill out extensive forms before they speak to them. Apart from contact information, other details such as body measurements, interests, and experience may be required. The agencies may also carry out their own measurements. There are specific plus-size requirements, which may differ slightly depending on the region. The model should be between 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet.
