In recent years the fashion world has began to celebrate curves, rather than dismiss them, with the fuller figure becoming more and more recognised on the high street. H&M are the latest store who would have made Marilyn Monroe proud after hiring their first plus sized model.

Despite her curves Marilyn Monroe was one of the most successful models to date, yet top brands have still often chose much smaller women to showcase their designs on the cat walk. Luxe Models welcome all shapes and sizes and see the beauty in everyone, which is why we encourage people to build a portfolio with us, rather than convincing yourself you don’t have the ‘right look’ for the modelling world.

Modelling is all about being different and diverse, whilst celebrating many different types of beauty and with the UK now having over 60 plus-size clothing brands more and more women are able to choose clothing suitable to them, which they love.

As the plus-size industry grows now is the perfect time to delve in to the modelling industry, regardless of your size, and see if you have what it takes. Self belief is all it takes.
