For anyone to become a top model they should have the average height of 5 feet 10 inches tall and they should weigh no more than 115lbs. There are several online forums that give individuals interested in modelling reliable information on the average height and weight of top the models.

-There are instances when the average height and weight of the top models might vary and while this may be the case, more often than not, it does not vary much from the average measurements mentioned above.

-There are some modelling agencies which prefer to look at specifics rather than using the average height and weight of the top models. In such instances, they look at specific measurements and have sample clothes that the top models have to fit first.

-There are cases when the required height is 5’8 inches and the weight when measured in kilos is 59 to 60. Most of the models who get interviewed on the average weight say that most modelling agencies do not follow up on this very much and while this is the case, it is safer to ensure that you fall within the 115 lbs range in order to get selected.

-If you look at this from a theoretical view, just about anyone can become a model. While this is the case, your height can affect your chances of succeeding in the modelling agency. For this reason, you have to be at least 5’5 feet and the weight might vary from one modelling agency to another depending on what they are looking for.

Before proceeding to decide whether or not to join the modelling agency, it is advisable to find out as much as possible about the preferred height and weight of the top models. With the guideline above, it should be easy for you to determine this.

The average height for a female model is said to be 5'8" while the average weight is supposed to be between 108-125 lbs. Of course it isn't absolutely necessary that this is the exact weight. Whether or not you walk the ramp would depend on how your frame looks on the ramp as well as on the camera. It is also believed that the camera adds a good 15 pounds. Ideally one of the prior requirements is that the model is long legged and lean. And as usual there exist many exceptions to the rule. British supermodel Kate Moss is 5'7" while Naomi Campbell weighs a lot more than 125 pounds. Usually the preferred age is between 15 to 22 years and the younger you are the better your chances.

Kate moss is 5'7, EVERYBODY knows that. For runway you have to be 5'8/5'9 atleast and you have to be a size 0-2 US and size 4-6 UK.
Weight doesnt matter its how it's spread across your body and the 12 year old girl, your too young to worry about this stuff!!!
Most models aren't under 16, they are 16-24, if you're under 16 you're very unlikely to get booked as models have to be able to travel easily.

I weigh just over 7stones, don't know wot that is in pounds, and want to be 7stone, then I'll b PERFECT size 6 :):):):):):):) (I'm 16 and 5'8)

I'm 16, and between 5'11" - 6'0" and weigh 129lbs, I just want to know if I'd be considered "fat" in the modelling industry because it is something I REALLY want to do but I'm a little worried I weigh to much. . .

I read on a modeling forum that runway models should be a minimum of 5'9" with 5'10"-6 ft. Being the preferred height.  The models say agencies never ask for a specific weight.  They ask for specific measurements, because you have to fit in the sample size clothes.  The ideal measurements in the sample size clothes are 34-24-34 with a B cup bra.  That's the reason most models are 16 years old and younger.  By your early twenties, you usually outgrow those measurements.  After that, some of the models go into other types of modeling like catalog and plus size modeling.  Plus size models aren't plus size.  They're average size women with a waist of 30 inches or more.  For some bizarre reason, the fashion industry uses skinny girls to model average women's clothes and uses average women to model plus size women's clothes.

The average height for an American supermodel (female) is 5 foot 10 inches and 115 lbs. BTW Kate Moss is only 5'5 that is why it is such a huge deal that she is such a big deal b/c she is so short.
thanked the writer.

If a woman is 5' 10" and only 115 lbs then she is severly underweight with a BMI of only 16.5 It's a little sickening that that's the average models body type. No wonder there are so many eating disorders. I'm 6' and weigh about 155 lbs and have a BMI of 21.4 and that is right in the middle range of a healthy weight for my height and I am slim. To get a BMI of 16.5 I would have to weigh about 122 lbs. GROSS I would be skin and bone... Oh wait thats exactly what models are today.

I'd say it is an *enormous difference* between average model size and average woman size that is scandalous.
