Under models are just like ramp models, they need to qualify for the job. They are expected to look sexy and fit, being able to give a lovely projection no matter what they wear. Female models are generally aged 18 to 24 and have an hourglass body and flawless skin. They should be at least 5 feet and 8 inches tall and must weigh around 124 pounds. On the other hand, male underwear models must be at least 6 feet tall and physically fit. Since the job requires them to show a lot of skin and wear skimpy underwear, it is a must that their body and skin looks visually attractive and appealing whether they wear the underwear on the catwalk or in front of the camera.
In order to get the ideal figure, aspiring models strive hard to follow a model diet and workout regimen. They spend time in toning their muscles, specifically the midsection. Leg workouts and abdominal exercises are just some of the things they do on a regular basis. Nevertheless, these stringent requirements for underwear models have some exceptions. Lingerie and underwear for plus-size and small-size clientele in particular have to be worn and endorsed by the appropriate models.
Underwear models however are not confined to wearing nothing but those little pieces of clothing. They are sometimes hired to hand out sample products, coupons and brochures during trade fairs, product launches and business exposition. This is one part of the job that doesn't rely heavily on the attractiveness of one's physique but on one's ability to socialize and interact with others.
Models must likewise be knowledgeable in the field of business and marketing. After all, they need to market themselves as underwear models and the effort they need to exert is greater at the start of their career. Some of the things that underwear models do are submitting photos of them in underwear to prospect employers; joining underwear parties and contests; building a strong base of fans online and offline; and updating their portfolio.
