    I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings!! We all come in different shapes and sizes. I SHOULD have said that I would love to see that fairly represented in the modeling world. Models tend to represent the same shape/size woman.  Wouldn’t it be great to open up a magazine and see everyone represented? That society would teach us that all of us are beautiful and what’s important is being healthy and loving our natural shape.  You are right. Real women come in ALL shapes and sizes.

    It’s not the size, but the body shape that matters. Not all styles work on all bodies. There’s a reason for different cuts, because women come in hour glass, apple, pear, rectangle and a polythera of other shapes & combos…

    For the record, I’m a size 2 hourglass that’s 5’7″ and it was HARD to find a dress that looked GOOD on me.

    @Mrs Grape: I totally agree. I am 5’3″ and a total pear (31-25-37). I have bought my dress, but have no idea what it is actually going to look like on me with my body shape. The model in the picture is like 6 foot tall and weighs 110 pounds lol.

    I’m small up top, but have hips and I’d like to see how gowns would look on someone with my body shape.

    It would be nice if the industry would start showing models of all sizes/shapes wearing gowns.  I have been everywhere from a size 14 in high school to a size 4 now.  In high school, I never found cute clothes in my size or saw teen models that were bigger than a 0.  That upset me.  Every woman is different….we all come in different shapes and sizes and it would just be nice to represent it in the media.

    Shorter models! Why are all the models 6 ft tall??? I think the average woman is like 5’4.

    I also wish they were real people with happy smiles instead of coked out looking models.

    How thin they are doesn’t bother me. I was a bit upset to be swimming in fabric when I tried on wedding gowns. I’m thin and short and it was a disaster. I couldn’t tell what anything would look like in my size.

    These are my favorite awkward poses… I’m sure the dresses would look much better on real, smiling, non-hunched over people!

    @Nicoley1985: Oh wow, that’s the worst I’ve seen yet. She’s clearly looking forward to her wedding…. (why does the word ‘hangover’ pop into my head when I see those pictures?)

    I want to see San Patrick Rama on a real bride.  I am a tall petite and want to try on a dress that is not 12 sizes larger than what I need.  No matter if your size is small or large, so many of us have complaints about the sizes that we try on at the stores.  I wish that stores would carry samples in more of a variety of sizes (1 on the smaller side and 1 on the larger of the same dress).  That would help us all!

    i think that 4-6 would be great. I would say most of the models we see dresses on are no bigger than a 2, but are usually a 0 or 00. I do not think they EVER do the gowns justice because they always look like hangers. every once in a while maggie sottero uses a curvier model, but i would like to see all the models with boobs and butts! (especially mermaid gowns, they don’t look great on STICK THIN girls)

    I’m a real woman with no hips or boobs and dresses in real life look nothing like what the highly-posed and retouched model photos look like.  It’s a bit tough to hear so many comments about “a real woman has curves”, but I get it.  I had a hard time seeing myself in what I thought was a gorgeous dress and not being able to achieve the hour-glass look.  I hate the miserable poses designers use, like Enzoani and Vera White, although at least with Vera I think she’s going for ethereal.  I do like Watters.  The models aren’t fake happy and they don’t look like someone just ran over their cat.  It’s frustrating to have a dress look one way in the photo and be such a let-down in person.  But why are we blaming the models?  Really?  I don’t even look at the model; I’m trying to dissect the dress… fabric, cut, details.  Anyway, if anyone wants to send me a Subway giftcard, that’s cool.  Sonic is good too.

    I just think there should be more variety with the dress models. because you have some sillouettes that are just not suited for the super slim and some that aren’t suited for your average girl.

     They should have more variety in the shapes, sizes, and heights of models.
