Maddy’s Plus Modeling Guide  – Top 10 Questions Aspiring Plus Models Should Ask Themselves…

Everyday, I am asked by curvy women everywhere, “How do I become a plus size model?”

As the editor for PLUS Model Magazine, I’m in constant contact with modeling agencies, brands and designers and know what they are looking for in plus size models. As plus size fashion continues to make news, plus size models have never before been in such high demand. With all this being said, beautiful plus size women are everywhere but knowing if you have what it takes to be a model is key.

I will go deeper into each one of these areas in more depth in the coming months, but wanted to share my ‘Top 10 Questions” any aspiring model should ask themselves when starting to embark on this career. Please read through each question carefully, as this is the MINIMUM aspiring models should know before getting started:
