When I went in June - I was 60kg (i'm 1.65m btw). Most of my weight's on my lower body - so I had to take a size L bottom.
...And I did pass the kebaya round - actually never failed it out of my so many attempts except for the 1 time that I managed to get to kebaya fitting @ STC...
Good luck to you Pork!
Hi mintia... Was just wondering.. They measured you at 1.65m? I'm really worried about my h&w because I measured myself at 1.63m and my weight's 60kg.. It's very likely they'll measure my height below 1.63m and my weight remains @ 60kg. You mean even at 60kg they did not fail you at the kebaya round? My weight is actually quite evenly distributed, I'm fat everywhere.
Sorry if I sound blunt, but I hope to clarify some doubts.. Thanks a lot!
Hi Pork12 and Tink 15,
Well there was 1 time @ Sheraton where I was measured shorter...but other times I'm always 165.
Ok at STC - they will measure and weigh you before round 1.
At Sheraton, they measure you before round 1. Only when you get to kebaya round will they take your height (again) and weigh you.
I am like a size 10 top with a size 12 bottom (pear shape) but as there are various sizes of tops and bottoms, you're free to mix and match - so most of the time you should be able to find one that fits you (because, a lot of the girls who make it through are stick thin and only go for size S
If you're worried about fitting the kebaya bottom - do wear a girdle, so it helps the bottom to 'glide' on easier. The kebaya's are marked like S/M/L for the bottoms and the tops either S/M/L or like 31" 32" 34" etc.. so it gives you a rough idea which top/bottom to take. Just try and find the most fitting kebaya possible (not too loose and skirt not too long)
As long as you fit into the kebaya, have decent skin - no visible scar and walk fine in the kebaya (don't slouch!), you should pass it. The interviewer will ask the usual questions of what you do, why you want to join etc...
Well, when I was 60kg and I passed the kebaya round - at the 1-1 interview, the panel told me "you do know you're kind of on the heavy side".... So...be prepared to be asked that question and think of a good reply!
Ahh.. hmm ok think I have written a lot just about the kebaya. Don't stress, just go there, smile and be yourselves!
