    I think I’d just like it if they looked happy and stopped posing so oddly. I never get the super serious face when they are supposed to be brides.

    I would like to see shorter models!  More of a variety and more typical body types (and less airbrushing) would be nice too, but height is what really makes it hard for me to imagine dresses on me.

    Their dress size doesn’t really bother me as much as their height.  I am 5’9″, but they put stools under those girls to make them look over 6’5″ tall in every picture…it lengthens the skirt so you can see the whole dress, I get it, but it is not realistic.

    I think we would all appreciate models that look a bit more realistic… precious few people are actually size zero and 5’10”.  I’m 5’1″, and a dress that looks a certain way on a tall woman does not look the same on someone my height.  It’s difficult because a lot of the dresses I am interested in look much more glamorous on someone who is taller.

    I don’t want to stare at pretty clothes on larger girls. I’m sorry, but that’s my truth. Yes, I know not a lot of ‘real’ people are size 0 (at least compared to a majority) but since I’m size 0 I want to see size 0 models.

    However, I TOTALLY agree with shorter models! Yes, please pretty please short girls!


    *As for the actaul question* what am I dying to see on a real bride? I really want to see some of Pinina Tournai’s gowns on some real brides… you know the outrageous dresses, insansely expensive, with sheer bodies, I want to see those on real brides.

    I think a variety of sizes and heights would be nice to see!

    @ vmec: I also don’t think the size of the girl diminishes the beauty of the dress, in fact I think its each individual girl that makes the dress more beautiful.

    I actually feel like wedding dress models look pretty normal–definitely healthier than some high fashion girls I’ve seen on runways. I agree with @vmec: that it’s nice to see a dress being modeled by a girl that’s the same general size you are, and since I’m 6’0 and a size 4, I feel like they do a pretty good job of representing how a dress will look. I think it’s sad, though, that the market only caters to one demographic. I usually get the short end of the stick when shopping since nobody sells my inseam length, so I know what it’s like to go to a store and have nothing fit right! 

    I do NOT like all the computer-generated airbrushing and “trimming” that goes on after the photos have been taken. Some of those girls have been so digitally doctored that they look like plastic, and I imagine that all the re-touching also alters how the dress itself looks in the pictures. I also agree with PP that the weird posing is not at all helpful. As a bride looking for a dress, I didn’t want to see art, I wanted to see what the dresses looked like!

    I want to see this dress with somebody who’s got some boobs and non stick arms.


    Some of the size 0’s bug me, but I don’t necesssarily think the models should be size 12. I’d be happy with maybe 6 being the average. You can see how boobs, buts, and hips look in the gowns. The “hanger” girls aren’t my favorite.

    @kala_way:I agree. I think somewhere around size 6 would be good. Size sixes usually have some kind of curves (even if they’re slight) and you can get a pretty good idea from that I think.

    @UK Bride:

    You would think that in the U.K. there is enough clothes for girls 6.0 feet..

    I’m 5.9 and in Netherlands kinda average size. No problems shopping.

    I’m a size 10. But I prefer to watch cloths on slimmer models, with a bit of curves though.
