Israel Bans Skinny Models In Fashion Industry To Promote Health

Israel banned skinny models in order to promote more healthy living in Israel’s youth. New legislation passed by the Knesset requires fashion companies in Israel to use models with healthy body types.

Israel’s skinny model law, which went into effect Tuesday, bans skinny models with a Body Mass Index, or BMI, of less than 18.5 from appearing in Israeli advertisements. According to that BMI standard, females model with a height of 5 feet, 8 inches must weigh at least 119 pounds or more. Advertising agencies are also not allowed to photoshop, or alter, digital photographs to make models appear thinner than reality. Sounds like models with more curves may discover that finding a job suddenly becomes easier.

According to NoInvite.com, Israel banned skinny models by enforcing the rules on companies in order to protect the youth from unhealthy life choices: Read more
