OMG, there are some HOT bees in the house! This thread is making me feel a ton better! My dress’s model looks anorexic, but I was still kicking myself on not loosing enough weight (got down to about 10/12 but am a DD, which now I’m starting to appreciate on this thread, hahaha)

oh, and these are non-pro pics of course, but I don’t have rights to those yet, and I wanted to crop … thanks everyone for sharing!

Anyone starting to wonder if the editorial photos look so much worse than the real brides do so that the brides get their “ah-ha” moment?
The difference is striking!

LOVE this thread!!!
I was devestated when I saw the stock photo for my gown…, but I love it on me 🙂 (p.s. I’m taking the flowers off of mine- the one I’m wearing is the sample in the store)

This is such a good idea for a thread. I think this dress looks weird on someone of a model’s height. I am soooooo much shorter (my husband is tall so I look even tinier.)!

On the model:
On me. I’m definitely not as young or thin as the model, but I actually liked the dress far better on me than on the model.

@ Stephmw: You look flawless in your gown!
I am also looking at this dress (it is in my top 2 – it may be the one if I can ever try it on!) and was wondering if I could ask how tall you are and what your street size is?
You can totally tell me to go jump in a lake, but I wanted to have an idea of what it looks like based on height (I can’t ask the model 🙂 although you would make a better one!) , i.e., where the flare begins on a real body
To be fair, I will disclose that I am 5’7″ (and 3/4!), weigh 135, and I typically wear a street size 6 (sometimes a 4 depending on how dedicated I am in the gym!).
