Got told by several fashion photographers that even if I had the height, my boobs are too big for fashion (I'm a B cup)...but when I look at my boobs, they look too small for glamour as well.  Are there any highly successful glamour models who aren't as curvy as most?

B cup is not generally too large for fashion, but on a 5'3" petite model it will, of course look bigger.

I'm not a glamour photographer, but a sexy look is what you mostly need for glamour and you certainly have that.



Just my $0.02

Kate Moss, in my opinion.
Will always get my vote.

Well, fashion and glamour are not the only genres... Besides, you and your portfolio are fantastic. Hard to imagine you have trouble finding photographers.

I don't see problem.
However if you are interested even on glamour you should update your profile and specify that you are interested even on implied nude (or at least i see one shoot on your profile).

Never, in my mind anyway, equated curvy with womanly.
this is my .02 on the matter.
Everyone to each his/her own so, I won't go anywhere else with this but suffice it to say, you heard somone's opinion and again, to me, that was all; an opinion.

I remember there being a small boobed glamour model here on MM, but I forgot her name.


edit: I'm a little confused here, because in these pictures you look pretty much flat, you'r not filling out your bra's.

and this picture your boobs look pretty big.

it's really hard to tell your true size from these pictures for anyone to give you an accurate answer.

There is also a difference in how one interpret "glamour". Some people (I guess the majority, not sure though) consider glamour the styles resembling Playboy, Maxim, FHM...boobs, bottoms with lingerie/swimsuit. Portraying that hot looking girl disregarding the surroundings by having a shallow depth of field. Others (including myself) consider glamour, all images that have a romantized feeling to it, such as well executed film noir style, pin-up, studio54 kinda look, etc, without the need of showing nudity.

I still would work out a glamour concept and have a shoot with you smile

This is making me want to put together a fund and get some MM models and keep them all for myself. ie. Don't worry about getting work I'll always have some projects for you

There are tons of fashion models out there with a B cup.  That photographer doesn't know what he's talking about.  Unless you are really a C, but I doubt it.

I'm not aware of anyone who's lost out in fashion to bust size.  Yes, your height is an issue for that, but as Stefano points out - the look is almost always more important in glamour modeling than bra sizing, so pay no mind to it and model what you like.

I agree with Stefano, as long as you look sexy and your comfortable without clothes on, you should do fine.  What we don't want with nude models is too have them look like a dear in headlights..

Tons of them are probably jealous of your petite frame. The grass is always greener...

Who are these self-appointed "experts"? I'd love to get my hands on them and whip them with a big smelly fish! You are a wonderful model with a great look. Your breasts look great, I can't imagine they would be too large or small to get you a job. Fake boobs are so 90's, real is where it's at. Most of the customers for glamour want models to look real.

I have a B cup and have been told I have amazing fashion boobs, so it really just depends on the photographer. This guys sounds like he doesn't know what he's talking about. You look fine for glamour smile

Ceecilia, you've struck a nerve with me, not on purpose but still (don't worry, I'll be kind.)  You know, there are a lot of people out there with the wrong ideas about a lot of stuff, different definitions on what glamour is and what it isn't.  Let me be blunt, boobs don't make the model.  If you can pull off fashion and you like it, do it, if you want to do nudes, do nudes, same goes for any genre of modeling.  I've seen women of all shapes and sizes do all types of modeling, so don't let what somebody else says stop you from doing the type of modeling you want and getting great at it.

You can totally do glamor. The boobs aren't as important as the face. And the shoulders. A girl can't pull off the postures without knowing how to work the shoulders.

I'm gonna have to agree with those who said that you can still do glamour. Anyway you are too short for fashion.
