When using the term „measurements“, we generally mean the 3 main measurements: chest, waist and hips. A model should know by heart his/her measurements and notify the model agency straight away if there are any changes. This is essential, as otherwise there may be difficulties at a booking, as the model must fit the sample size of the collection. The ideal height for a female model is between 1.75 and 1.79 metres. There are also smaller models which still have a big chance at a modelling career, especially if they should aim for international catwalks. There are also other parts of the body which the model can work with, such as hands and feet and where her height is not a determinative factor.  Furthermore, a distinction is made between runway models and print models. Models, who mainly want to work on the catwalk have it considerably harder and must be very tall and thin.
