Maybe we could have a new level for fashion models who are happy to model to edgy styles eg sheer clothing,implied topless etc as at the moment there is a big jump from fashion to topless with nothing in between except lingerie which tends to be more for glamour models and there are lots of fashion girls who are happy to do this level who dont want to tick any of the more glamour style boxes. It also seems there are quite a few photographers who like to shoot this style aswell and its a pain to keep asking models if theyre happy at this level.
Apologies if its been mentioned before but I'm quite new here.
Barry, just to ensure there is no confusion it might be useful to know which definition of edgy you consider covers the type of work you see falling into such a category as I've never thought of the term as having something to do with the opacity or positioning of the garments being worn.
I think a simple implied topless & implied nude levels on their own would work, then as a model you could tick fashion or glamour if you wanted to be specific about your area of interest.
It is frustrating to search for topless or nude models only to read the notes to see a clarification in them stating implied. It would make searching easier. It must also be annoying for models too as lets face it reading the forum posts we never read profile notes so they must hate requests for shoots outside their levels.
Although I agree you just have to watch a fashion show or fashion shoot to see that boobs and nipples are occasionally shown but more by accident then intent usually poor designs and ill-fitting clothes!
