@sweetcrackers I wasn’t trying to say the model herself was ugly, I was saying the picture is bad and doesn’t do my dress justice. I found your comment to be rude and directed at me in a really negative way. I was trying to participate in the thread..the whole point is bad models.

This thread is ridiculous. It also smacks of insecurity. There is no logical reason you should feel the need to tear another woman down who is just doing her job, JUST BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE YOU.

I was a model for years and I AM a REAL woman. What, do I forfeit the title just because I don’t look like everybody else? I had no idea I was make believe.

I just wish whoever is posing these would put the model in a happier pose. It just seems odd that they want to show the models looking so unhappy when they’re trying to sell a dress for a woman to wear on the “happiest day of her life”. I guess that’s “high fashion”, though. I can’t imagine it’s very fun for the model, either.

@Seaburt: well then maybe you should start posting the names of some photographers and casting directors since the model was hired to do what they want. That doesn’t make them a bad model.

Cripes. So shopped. If she extended her arms they’d be down to her knees.

Models are people with feelings that was a bit mean. I do think there is an issue with the designers not choosing a wide range of models, however I don’t blame the Model for doing her job. I don’t see the point of making mean comments about her body and resorting to name calling. We are grown women not catty teenagers.

I don’t care how fat or skinny a person wearing a wedding dress is.

I personally would just like to see more wedding dress models smiling.

This has nothing to do with the model.  It has to do with the photographer who posed her, the company that photoshopped her, and the company that agreed to release the photo.

@DeadlyNightshade:  Go You! 

Most of the models I’ve seen are very pretty and have beautiful bodies.  I do not agree that some of the stylists/ photographers/ editors make the best choices.  Also, most of the time these people aren’t directing the shoot or don’t have any choice in the final photo being used.  It’s whoever is calling the shots.  The models have little say in how they pose or what photo is being chosen.  

Remember we all people and we all deserve some respect!

@mink: Most girls will never get to ONLY be fashion models, they will bounce back and forth between fashion and commercial/commercial fashion. Bridal is commercial fashion. You’ll find girls with slightly larger measurements in bridal because the samples are more forgiving, but for the most part everyone in the industry is going to be around 34-24-34 or rarely work.

This model’s awkward pose is not really attractive — but she does not look ill. She just looks like a model with a low body fat percentage, which is why her skin rests up against her muscle. The first picture is clearly oddly photo shopped, and I think her clavicle is protruding more due to the pose than her health.

Why is it ok to say “she is so skinny she makes the dress look ugly” ? Can you imagine the backlash if someone said “she is so large she makes the dress look ugly” ??? Saying thin = ugly is just as offensive as saying fat = ugly.

I personally believe thin and fit is beautiful. I personally do not find large very beautiful. I am 5’4″ and 105 pounds, with perfect hourglass measurements. To me THAT is “curvy.” I play tennis, lift heavy 3 times a week and eat healthier than most people I know. Recent bloodwork has confirmed I am completely ideal in the health department. I am very proud of my shape, size, and health, and I work hard to maintain it. And let me tell you, my boyfriend loves it too.

Some people, myself included, are genetically petite with a small bone structure and can be completely healthy at this size.

Last I checked I have a pulse…but because I have the body of a playboy model I am not a “real” woman? How many pounds do I have to gain before I can be “real” ???

Why is it socially acceptable to bash thin women?
