Models, when you are building your portfolio, its important to know what type of model category or categories you fit into. Your port should reflect the type of jobs you will actually book when you're working.
If you have bikini model measurements but you're doing photo shoots with couture clothing and poses, you are really just wasting your time, if you actually want to work in the industry. (If you're just modeling for fun, this is not directed at you.)
An agency will look at your photos and look at your measurements and say INCONGRUENT! Be informed. Know where you fit.

Notes: Fitness modelling centres on displaying an athletic physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscles like bodybuilders, but with less emphasis on muscle size. Their body weight is usually similar to (or heavier than) fashion models, but they have a lower body fat percentage due to increased muscle mass relative to fat mass.
