Italy, Israel and Spain have all passed bills banning the use of ultra-thin models, with France expected to follow suit.
The French National Assembly is considering a health reform bill that includes measures to ban designers and labels from using models deemed "too thin" by healthcare standards.
Very thin models would be required to prove they have a minimum Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18, with a medical certificate.
They would then be subjected to periodic weigh-ins. Models who come in under weight would face fines of up to 75,000 euros, (£55,000) or even prison sentences.
Jamie Gavin, founder and managing director of media agency inPress, has welcomed the proposals.
