Do Modeling Agencies Specialize in Swimsuit Models?
On a local level in smaller markets there may be modeling agencies that specialize in swimsuit models. However, the major model agencies in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Milan that represent models who appear in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Maxim, Details, and even pose for Playboy. don’t have swimsuit divisions. Their swimsuit models are represented within the same divisions as the agency’s editorial and/or commercial models.
There are many opportunites for swimsuit models other than just modeling bikinis. Swimsuit models can model lingerie, undergarments, sleepwear, summerwear, and can also be showroom and fit models, petite models or work as specialty models such as hand and feet models.
