In my case, the model def looks better in the dress than I do but I don’t really mind (they’re models;) )


The model:

I think all the real brides made much prettier brides than the models! Real girls aren’t sticks! All of these dresses are stunning and everyone in them is going to make a lovely bride.

I think my dress doesn’t look too good on the model. She doesn’t fill it out.

I have been waiting to play this game…and now that I finally got my dream dress yesterday (Allure 8751), I CAN!  Yay!

What beautiful dresses! I think the point is that the models are supposed to be hangers for the dresses. That way we’re looking at the dresses and the designs and not the models. Maybe if they used real women with expressions then we’d pay more attention to the women … which is not what the vain designers want. Jk ^^

Okay I think my dress def wins the ‘worst on the model award’ it truelly is awful, i didnt see the model pic till after I bought the dress and when I saw it I was gutted – i HATED it!!! It is that bad, it doesnt look like it even fits her ๐Ÿ™‚ But when it came in and I tried it on I loved it, it is definatley a dress made for curves (Im a UK 12/14 so pretty curvy) I havent got a photo of it on me but this is it on the model:



This is it on a mannequin which looks a 1000 times better than on the model. 

Seriously I do not know why they put wedding dresses on such skinny and unnatural women, it totally ruins the dresses – when a headless mannequin looks better than a real person theres def something not right ๐Ÿ˜€

Here is mine! It never caught my eye on the site because of the awkward stance of the model. (Similar to my stance, but popping her chest out all weird.)

Casablanca 1856
