Which country banned skinny models?
The purpose of the law, introduced by Israel, is to protect young girls from forming misconceptions about figure standards, related eating disorders and possibility of anorexia. Any model who has body mass index (BMI) below 18.5 is not allowed to work as a fashion model in Israel. You can calculate your BMI to see if you'd be banned from becoming a model in Israel.
