I say,if you want to do it...then do it.Im assuming you would be doing petite work because of your height.But if you really want to do it,get pictures done and look for agencies. Don't listen to some of the responses you got here,get a professional opinion.But if you want to do it...go for it.
I see you're dating. I would ask your boyfriend if he wants you being ogled by other men before you make any decisions..how would you feel if he became a model and had girls ogling him..not very good, right?
Have a good sense of fashion. Not only what to wear but about the fashion business as well. I think plus sized models are just like any other models. They're just a different category than the models you see going down the Victoria's Secret runway. Also know how to dress your body. What's flattering on you and what isn't. You need to look into professional modelling pictures for your portfolio as well as look into a talent agent. Just because its not a business that a lot of people get into doesn't mean that its easy to get into and be successful.
If you feel strongly about being a plus size model, then go for it. To be honest with you the modeling industry will probably consider you as plus size, if not close enough according to your size clothing, and height you have posted. Just make sure you strong and want it and be able to take criticism with a grain of salt. And if all things do fail at least you can say you have experienced it and have something to take with you for future reference if you choose to make it a career someday in life. Good Luck with your decision!
you're too short.
I think being a model is overrated. I've heard the pay is crappy unless you're a big time model, and its hectic, competitive and often corrupt. I'd put more energy into getting a sustainable career, personally.
