    I’d love to hear from a pro: What on god’s green earth was this photoshopper trying to do? Make a plus-size model out of a skinny one?

      I agree, something is obviously going on here. Apparently some critics think none of us have ever seen a dress before, but my issue isn’t with how the dress fits her. If you removed the dress altogether and pictured her body there’s something seriously wrong with her proportions. I’m sure its physically possible for her to have a massive pear shape, and possible for her to be missing the majority of her left hip & thigh, but I don’t believe that anyone would feature such a body in order to show off their product.

    I think she probably is a larger lady, just in reality larger still than the artist wanted so he shaved her left (our right) thigh brutally?

      That makes sense for that side of the photo, but I’m still looking at that big air pocket (?) below the gathers…? The fabric is very drape-y and doesn’t have enough body to hold a shape like that on its own, and no one has a giant bulge of fat BETWEEN their thighs. It almost looks to me as if the photoshopper took a photo of the fabric when it was draped over something other than a human body–or another part of a human body–cut it out in the shape he or she thought this skirt might look like, pasted it here, and added some gathers to try to make it look semi-real.

        I don’t agree. I don’t think the fabric is so drapey that wrinkles and folds wouldn’t appear, I also don’t believe that anything was ‘shopped onto the front of the dress. From the look of it, the dress just fits her horribly. This isn’t a photoshop disaster, it’s a stylist disaster.

    Not a PSD. It’s the material’s cut, and the way it’s worn. Take a look at other, similar models wearing them.

    I see a seam, but I don’t see the disaster. I think the model is actually curvier, and you can see two front seams on the dress, but the one on her right side is very visible and looks like it could be added on. Don’t think this is a disaster

      What is that bulging air pocket between her thighs?

        It’s the result of the dress being a size too small through the hips and thighs. It’s not hanging right — as evidenced by the wrinkles near hip-level — and that causes all sorts of weird-but-real effects. Shiny satin intensifies the visual craziness.

        Why any woman would be eager to buy a dress that makes her look like that is the tough question that should be posed to the team behind the ad.
