Bing currently resides in Los Angeles and Sweden.[2] After leaving England, Bing lived briefly in New York in 2008. After four months living there, Bing left because she was told she was too shapely and short and that she was more suited for Los Angeles. Bing told the New York Times:

“New York’s like the toughest place in the world,” said Ms. Bing, who now lives in Los Angeles. “All the top models are there, and you have to be super tall and super skinny. It was too tough for me. I couldn’t handle — I couldn’t handle the pressure.”[5]
