I’ll bite!  I actually don’t mind this one although in most of the other dresses it would have been a he** no!  But the one also happens to be MY DRESS! So i love it on ๐Ÿ™‚

My dress is so BLAH on the model. Nothing special. I would have overlooked it. In fact, the lady at the store had to convince me to try it on cuz it was so blah on the rack to! But, it came to life once it was on =].

Needles to say, I’m much curvier than the model =]

I think it depends on the model. The first time I saw my dress on the model from the designer’s ad, I wasn’t all that impressed. She’s so tall and sickly thin…ew.[attachment=402406,52962]

But then I saw a photo shoot in Elegant Brides magazine, where my dress on the model was absolutely stunning! I fell mady in love with it when I saw this picture. [attachment=402406,52963]

But whereas she’s tall and super thin and graceful, I’m short with curves and tend to fall down a lot.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I figured there was no way in the world that this dress would ever look good on me, without me being at least 6 foot tall.  However, I think it worked for me.  I still don’t know if I look as beautiful as this model, but I did alright. ๐Ÿ™‚

Everyone looks so much better than the models :o)  I think curves work better in most of these dresses!

I don’t have a picture of myself in my dress on my work computer, but I am definitely curvier than the model and I think the dress looks much better!

Curves so work better in these dresses.  I HATED my dress on the model.  and it made me question whether or not I wanted it anymore.  then Id look at myself in it and be ok again :)  I guess in retrospect it doesnt look THAT bad on the model…maybe its her collarbones jutting out??

 

@ missomally I still drool over your dress.  Please never sell that, save it for a daughter or soemthing!

It seems like most of the wedding gowns out there are MADE for curvier real women, so you would think they would have more “REAL” looking women model them????  I know, I didn’t really like mine on the model as much as I like it on me!  I just seem to fill it out more or something…maybe someday they’ll have more realistic models but who knows!  Seriously ladies, I have to say we ALL look better in these dresses than the models!

Such a great idea–it’s always bothered me that the models they use to sell wedding dresses were all “models.”  I think they should have a variation of shapes and sizes as far as models go.

So the first one is the model, and I would never have picked this dress out for me, but it worked once I tried it on
