VIDEO: Lincoln student Charlotte Court enters Nuts Bedroom Babes contest
A University of Lincoln student will appear in a national lads' mag to promote "curvy girls".
Charlotte Court, 21, is set to compete in the Nuts Bedroom Babes contest.
She will compete against three other girls in a bid to land a double-page picture shoot.
And Miss Court, a third year interactive design student, says she took up glamour modelling after being told she was too big for fashion shoots.
"I started doing shoots with local photographers but nothing really came of it," she said.
"I have always been told I was too big to do fashion modelling so I got into the glamour side of it.
"You can be up to a size 14 in glamour modelling and I am a size 12 so I am doing it for all the curvy girls."
Miss Court's picture will be in the magazine in April, along three other girls. She has no idea what the other girls look like.
They will also be on the website and readers will be able to vote for their favourite girl who will then be featured in a double page shoot.
"It all started on Twitter and Nuts kept retweeting me," she added.
"I entered my pictures and I got an e-mail back saying they liked them and that I would be in the competition.
"The first time I did glamour modelling I was quite nervous but the photographers put you at ease.
"I am now really excited about the competition.
"If I was to win, it would open up so many more opportunities and possible photo shoots.
"I have friends that have won the competition before and they have had a lot more work since then."
Miss Court, who is originally from York and plans to pursue modelling when she completes her studies in Lincoln, says the negative thoughts towards glamour modelling can be unfair.
"I think as long as it is your choice and you enjoy doing it then there is no harm," she said.
"It isn't hurting anybody and, at the end of the day, I would never do anything I was uncomfortable with."
Ruth Deane, editor of Every Model magazine and organiser of the Miss Lincolnshire competition, said: "There have been a great deal of new models recruited in the plus size arena receiving full time work in the modelling industry.
"I do, however, think it is important to remember that size is not everything.
"To be successful in this industry, whether a size 8 or 18, requires a package of more than just looks.
"There are agencies that only sign models that are size 12 or above.
"The very fact that we now have a requirement for such an agency depicts the modern day need and use of larger models."
