Modeling 101: Am I Too Old to Start Modeling?

Francine asks: Am I too old to start a modeling career, I just turned 26? 

Generally speaking, most agencies like to develop models and begin working with them from a young age.

In the plus-size industry, the life span of models is a lot longer. While most models are between 21 and 32 years of age, there are some models that are modeling well into their late 30’s. I will say the modeling jobs are fewer and depend on how strong your agency is. Good luck!
