How to be a Curve Model
Curve modelling has well and truly made a huge positive impact on the modelling industry in recent years and we couldn't be more pleased! As a commercial agency, we feel excited to be able to represent such diverse talent and embrace body positivity on a daily basis. There is an increasing number of opportunities being made available to curvier talent as the industry continues to rapidly grow.
We absolutely LOVE seeing all shapes and sizes represented in both campaigns and on the catwalk. Curvy icon Ashley Graham is just one of those paving the way for change, including being the first plus-size model to appear on the front cover of American Vogue.
2023 has seen an emerging rise in mid and plus-sized brands in London, with Vogue Business stating that 'London topped the rankings this season in terms of plus-size representation, driven by emerging designers'. So, as we see more and more brands creating inclusive clothing lines, the time to become a curve model is now!
Have you been thinking about becoming a curve model and embarking on the route to change with us? We’ve put together this post to give you a little insight into the world of plus size modelling, how to get involved and introduce you to some of the beautiful curve and mid-sized models we represent here at Sandra Reynolds Agency.

“It has been really great to see brands embracing all body shapes & sizes for their campaigns. It shows a much fairer representation of our society, compared to what we have seen in previous years. The most important thing I look for in models is confidence. We want our girls (& guys!) to love their bodies and be proud to show them off. This always shines through in their photos and makes our clients want to book again and again.” - Head Booker, Jessica Tracey
