Our Top 3 Tips For Bikini
Bikini fashion modeling is one truly exciting facet of the fashion modeling industry, but it is one of the most difficult areas to break in to. There are, for obvious reasons, more and stricter requirements for this type of fashion modeling, and these three tips can help you determine whether this type of fashion modeling is for you.
Tip #1 - You must have impeccably healthy skin and skin tone
Given the nature of bikini fashion modeling, the great majority of your skin will be exposed. Invest in some highly rated skin products to ensure great looking skin. If you have very light, fair skin, you will want to consider using a tanning product suited to your skin type.
Seek the advice of professional skin care experts or other bikini fashion models for a list of safe self-tanning lotions, or research this on a consumer advice website. Drinking plenty of water is another wonderful way to promote healthy skin. Water is needed by every single part of your body, including your skin, and also helps flush toxins from your body.
Tip #2 - You must have a very fit body to model bikinis
Bikini models must look healthy and be in good shape. You don't need impressive muscles to be a bikini fashion model, but you must have a fit, healthy appearance. Bikini models are usually required to have specific body measurements. The typical requirements for bikini models are a bust measurement of 36”, a waist measurement of 24”, and a hip measurement of 34”. It is imperative that bikini fashion models look well-proportioned as well.
Some agencies will make exceptions to these measurements, depending on the particular modeling job and bikini model, and there are also some agencies that are looking for models with a general overall healthy and fit look, without regard to measurements. Check with the specific modeling agencies to find out what their measurement requirements are for bikini models.
Tip # 3 - Determine whether or not you are cut out for the schedule of a bikini fashion model
Many bikini models do not have their photography shoots done in a heated or air-conditioned photography studio. The fashion industry stays well ahead of the current season, and bikini fashion models often find themselves modeling in very cold temperatures. You must be able to model a bikini and appear to be enjoying the warm weather and sunshine.
Plus the work can be demanding. As a bikini model, you will need to be available at any time of the day. Any modeling job can take much longer that originally anticipated, and you must be prepared to work for long periods of time.
There are lots of different types of bikini fashion modeling jobs, and each one will have its own requirements, schedules, and demands. Bikinis can be modeled for swimwear catalogs, fitness magazines, as visuals for magazine articles, and for fashion shows. You'll need to be ready for this, but if you are, you'll enjoy a fantastic career, great money, and lots of travel. I hope these 3 tips help you to decide whether or not bikini modeling is the right career path for you.
