Agreed! They make me so self concious even though I have a teeny waist 🙁

Sooo agree! It’s funny because I think just about every single wedding dress looks better on the actual bride than it ever does on the model. The model wearing my dress doesn’t even do it justice!

Totally agree, even though I LOVE her dresses!

@SamanthaSadlier: I think so too! Dresses look so much better on real brides than on the models. I understand models are supposed to be thin, but some of the bridal models just look sickly!

Ok, I just looked, and I hate the way the site is designed, too.

🙁  Mine is taking so long to load I don’t think I will get to see.  :/  I love the dresses though.

Oh my goodness!  You are right, those shoulder bones.  I could have like two of those models in my body mass.

There is a great thread floating around weddingbee where people post their dress on them and the model pic and it’s amazing that like most of the time it looks so much better on a real girl.

I just had to look. Wow, your right. They also all look like they’re about 13 years old, so it just looks like little girls playing dress up (in weird, awkward poses) rather than actual brides.

  • Wedding: April 2011 - Sweet ceremony by the sea and sunset celebration on the North Shore of Hawaii

this thread is exactly what was running through my mind when i was looking at dresses a year ago. 🙂 thankfully, i got to see pics of the jenny dress i ultimately bought – papillion – on a former bride who i bought it from on preownedweddingdresses.com. also, google image searches helped me find a few real life brides in some jenny dresses and they look SO MUCH BETTER on non model-waifs.

good luck on the search!
