I'm 172cm tall. Too short to be a male model?
Hmm. That’s 5’8” (at a push) in American speak, which is a bit short. It’s a little short for a female model, let alone a male model. That being said, Anja Konstantinova does pretty well at 163cm. She’s kind of the exception though. Don’t even think about runway. I’d say it’s unlikely you’d have great ‘success’ as a male model given that you wouldn’t be able to fit a lot of samples, but then again, are you extremely, extremely, extremely good looking with a great personality and proportions?
