Curvy, vintage pin-up model?

I am interested in vintage pin-up modeling;however, I don't know what body type is most preferred in that industry.

My measurements are 38D-34-45/47 (depending on time of month?)

How do I get into that? Is race a factor (I'm black)? Is it a profession or side activity?

Please, I NEED ADVICE!

Updates:
I need any advise, especially about taking the pictures. I don't want to come out like some warped out hourglass something. How do I obtain balance?

  • Those measurements sound more like BBW modeling than vintage pinup. As the first girl said, Marylin Monroe had a much smaller waist and hips.

  • Damn I wish I had your bum, I hate mine.

    You will probably need similiar measurements to ordinary models, although you can most likley allow to be a bit thicker ( two or three inch)

    Dita van Teese's measurements are supposingly 32-22-33, Marylin Monroes are 36-23-37, you should take that as a guideline.

  • I'm really not sure. I do know that Marilyn Monroe's measurements were approximately 36-23-37 - and most people find her to be the ideal pin up girl.
