A fetish model is a model who models fetish clothing and/or devices that augment his or her body in a fetish manner or in fetishistic situations, though he or she may not specialise in that form of modeling.

Many fetish models display what are termed fetish fashions, which are clothing styles that considered extreme and provocative, designed to elicit a strong emotional reaction or desire on the part of the observer. Such clothing range from exotic stylized bathing suits to extreme costuming including body armor and sci-fi fantasy suits.

Fetish modeling may involve bondage, body modification, fetish photography and exotic glamour photography as well as sexual fantasy costuming (as popularized in Japanese manga productions and fantasy stories such as Dungeon and Dragons), which is usually referred to as cosplay. Fetish models may model for photography, and appear at BDSM fairs and parties.

Several pornographic actors and glamour models also act as fetish models.
