Love this post!

I’d post pics, but I’m not married yet, so no pics of me in my dress just yet!

This is such a great thread! And I agree, everyone looks so much better than the models. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s mine! (haha, ignore how i’m posing just like the model – it was purely by accident, i swear!)

What a brilliant thread idea!  I’ll have to dig up photos so I can post also, but I have to say, I think the dresses always look better on “real” people with “real” bodies!

1st is me ….2nd is the model.

I didn’t see a pic of this dress on a model until after I bought it. I think my curves make it look better ๐Ÿ˜‰

WOW!!! This is the best post ever. @melodicsi<span style=”font-family: tahoma, verdana;”>ghs1 I can’t explain why but your dress is like, 12473% better. She looks so… fake… and you have the perfect amount of curves to accent that gorgeous dress. I LOVE IT!

<span style=”font-family: tahoma, verdana;”>PS guys SO MANY OF YOU have real boobs (YAY DD’s!) and they make the dresses look so much better!!! LOL’d at Gloss’s comment. I just am so glad to see real bodies making dresses ROCK as opposed to those silly anorexic models!

wellykiwi, I edited your post to pull out the code.  

That happens when something is copied from MS Word or another website and pasted into our site.  To prevent it, try pasting into Notepad first, then copying/pasting into our site….Notepad strips out the formatting. 

HTH!  And great thread, everyone – the dresses look WAY better on real, beautiful brides!!!

@kjpugs: haha thanks! Yeah, I hate that model picture, she definitely looks fake. My curviness is FI’s favorite part about me, so that dress won the contest in accentuating/showing them off. ๐Ÿ™‚

WOWZA, those dresses do look so much better on real people. I don’t want to spoil the gorgeous full-length shots of my dress from our wedding day until I start recaps, but this thread is so much fun!

agreed!  We have some good looking hive members!  Love looking at the comparisons.

I wish I could post mine, but I had my dress custom made, so there is nothing to compare it with!

You know what’s kinda funny.  Some of these posts the people haven’t had their wedding yet so it’s trying on a sample that isn’t perfectly tailored to them yet, but still there’s just something that makes the dresses look so much better on real people then the model making a sour face (who thought up the idea for models to look pissed in a wedding dress may not be the best market stratagist).

Super fun thread! I was even telling my husband about it.

Hungry model vs. Happy me :)))

Note: I could not find the exact model of my dress but it’s pretty close. I think my dress is from Collection 2000 b.c. because there are no photos of it anywhere. Actually if any one of you can tell me what model or year my dress is, it would be really great. It was baught used, from a sample sale. It has Paloma Blanca tag, but no style # or year.

I agree, everyone looks better than the models. Yay for feeling good about ourselves – hehe! Here’s mine: [attachment=409252,54281] [attachment=409252,54282]

You just have to ignore the fact that you can see my bra a bit and the thing the dress gets hung up with.
