What You Should Know Before Going Into a Career in Fit Modeling

There are a lot of different careers available in the modeling industry, but most people have never heard of fit models. The job actually sounds pretty easy at first glance; just be the average height and body type for the company’s brand. However, there are a lot of things that people might not think about when it comes time to start trying on clothes for a living.

Privacy and Comfort Level

It’s very important for those who want to become fit models to be comfortable with themselves in all states of dress and undress. Not only will they have to try on all sorts of clothes, but they’ll have to do it with relatively little privacy. It’s not common at all for fit models to have their own dressing rooms, so you need to dress and undress under all kinds of circumstances.coffee brown pajamas

Additionally, fit models are going to have to deal with a lot of day-to-day negativity. It won’t be about them, it will be about the clothes they’re wearing, but the models still have to deal with those disapproving frowns all day. That can take it out of you, even for $150 an hour.

Same Body, Same Type

A fit model has to look average; that’s what you’re being paid to be. You’re a living manikin, and as such you have to look a certain way. Normally models have to worry about not gaining weight, but as a fit model you also have to worry about not losing weight! If you want to get in really good shape, to shave off your muffin top and increase your energy level, then you’ll be out of a job. You need to keep your weight and appearance between a very specific set of lines, and if you don’t then you’re going to stop getting gigs. While a padded bra and other bra tricks might work for an off month, if you don’t maintain your average then you’re going to be out of luck in the modeling world.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Fashion companies are notoriously fickle when it comes to their fit models. You might be just fine one day, but the next the company’s decided to stop hiring models in your size because the product just isn’t selling. So, with that impermanence lurking over your head, it is no wonder that being a model can be such a stressful line of work.
