MEASUREMENTS

Why are your model measurements so important & what are they used for?

A models measurements are used for designers and brands. In runway shows, it's important that the model possess precise clothes designed specifically for them. Designers will typically design outfits around these measurements.

If you're modeling for a brand or designer catalog or look book, it's important the the model's which are chosen have body measurements that will fit their clothes proportionately. Each designer will have a different fit for their garments and the model's body should complement their particular fit. For instance, some clothing designers have a fit to accomodate wider hips, or longer leg lengths; so finding a model that has the right proportions will showcase their garments best.

Model Poloroids

Model Poloroids are typically used as a visual representation of a model's body shape, fit, and proportions. Each model with have a model comp card which will list their exact measurements. Measurements will include: Height, weight, chest, waist, inseam (for men), hair and eye color, shoe size, and sometimes suit (for men) or dress size.

Getting Started

For reliable measurements, grab a flexible measuring tape and a friend. We recommend taking measurements while in a swimsuit or very fitted clothing, so the tape measure can be as close to your actual skin as possible.

• Stand with your back straight

• Arms relaxed by your side

• Measure yourself barefoot (no shoes). You can wear shoes for your poloroid's but not in measuring yourself.

• When you measure, you will want the tape to lay flat across your skin, but not gap, pull or pinch.

• Tip: do not hold your breath while measuring your chest, it will skew your measurements

HEIGHT

Measure yourself standing against a wall with no shoes. Measure yourself to the full inch, do not list half or quarter inches.

WEIGHT

Simply step on a scale! No need to record half pounds.

BUST

Because bra sizes & cup sizes vary by manufacturer, your bust measurement is done by a tape measure only. Your bust measurement is not usually the same as the number on your bra. You'll want to measure at the fullest part of your chest/bust. Make sure the measuring tape wraps around your bust with light tension.

WAIST

Although you may think your waist size is the size listed on your jeans, it's likely not accurate. You'll want to measure around the SMALLEST part of your waist. Use your belly button or an inch or so above it as a reference point.

HIP

It seems logical to measure around your hip bone, but often times, that's too high. You'll want to measure around the widest part of your hip and around your buttocks.

SHOE SIZE

Check your shoes that fit you well.

HEIGHT

Measure yourself standing against a wall with no shoes. Measure yourself to the full inch, do not list half or quarter inches.

WEIGHT

Simply step on a scale! No need to record half pounds.

CHEST

Feed the measuring tape under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest. Do not hold your breath while measuring.

WAIST

Although you may think your waist size is the size listed on your jeans, it's likely not accurate. You'll want to measure around the SMALLEST part of your waist. Use your belly button or an inch or so above it as a reference point.

HIP

It seems logical to measure around your hip bone, but often times, that's too high. You'll want to measure around the largest part of your HIPS & BUTTOCKS.

INSEAM

This is basically the length of your leg but the starting point is from the inside of your leg. Measure from the INSIDE of your leg, starting from just below your crotch, all the way to the base of your ankle bone. Note, do not just measure the inseam of your pants as there is often extra room left for comfort in the crotch area of pants; so your measurement may not be accurate.

SLEEVE

Measure from your collar bone, down your shoulder (along the outer side of your arm) down to the end of your wrist bone. This is an optional measurement, not always required

COLLAR

Measure the circumference around the BASE of your neck. This is an optional measurement, not always required.

SHOE SIZE

Check your shoes that fit you well.
