Pinup models are beautiful, with both men and women admiring them for their beauty and confidence. Every pinup model is unique and different, but they all have the same retro style and impeccable confidence that radiates from their pictures no matter what their size. If you’re ever wanted to be a pinup, here are some tips on how to become one:
- Find role models
Even though each pinup model is different, you should still find some role models to emulate. See what worked for them in terms of style and how they pose and try to see if it works for you. You don’t have to copy them completely, but use them as guidance when trying to come up with your own distinct pinup features.
- Be comfortable in your own skin
What makes pinups so beautiful is the fact that they are comfortable wearing pinup clothing, like dresses, lingerie, bathing suits, pencil skirts and other retro fashions. No matter the pinup’s size, they all wear them with confidence since they’re comfortable in their own skin. You need to be ready to wear anything with sass or else being a pinup might not be for you.
- Work your best features
To perfect your look, you’ll want to emphasize your best features and find your personal trademark. If you have amazing legs, wear pencil skirts and high heels, and if you like tattoos, focus on getting quality work. And never leave the house without your pinup undergarments like corsets or a bullet bra to really give you a unique look.
- Have a portfolio
To get your name out there in the pinup world, you’ll have to your own portfolio with some of your best photos. Look for a photographer that specializes in pinups so that they can help you feel comfortable in front of the camera and give you tips for your best looks.
- Promote yourself
Once you have your portfolio, the next step is to market yourself so that you get the word out there about your pinup status. This can help get you advertising and modeling opportunities.
