    I understand photoshopping happens but in the above two examples it went a little too far. The first, those aren't her arms... No one is that big without having a double chin... The belly button is just wrong; no seriously, that's not her belly button! Whiting out and trimming her waist, also wrong!

    The second one is slightly less obvious but still is a bit wrong in the inhuman sense.

    Thought I'd share :)

    How is everyone?

    I don't think there's that much wrong with this one. I think it's a downward camera angle and the fact that it's for a bustier.

    The body stocking one might also be a function of the garment- but I have to agree that the first one is terrible.

    I don't think they've been photo shopped or airbrushed just had the immage cut and pasted onto a different background. which to be fair is better than some photographs with laundry or the TV in the background.

    Hey everyone

    We're in the process, where possible, of shooting a lot of our lingerie 'in house' using our own models. Doing this minimises the amount of post production editing and enables us to leave the image pretty much untouched. It also means we can get an accurate photo of the products in a style we like. You can see examples of our own models and photoshoots here:

    iCollection Satin and Floral Lace Bustier

    iCollection Satin and Antique Lace Chemise

    iCollection Halter Neck Corset Top and Thong

    Due to the amount of new stock which goes up every day we're unable to take our own photos of every product so we use a lot of supplier images for our lingerie so we can get them 'live' on the site ASAP.

    Generally, we will only edit a supplier image here if it's showing too much nudity or the colour / design of the garment used for the shoot is not accurate to the actual product.

    Thank you for highlighting these shots though. It helps us to decide which items should be prioritised for our next 'in house' lingerie shoot.

    Aren't you a busy bee being up working at this time Jess!!

    I've just added the Halterneck Corset top to my wishlist! It looks beautiful!

    I always see things I like and forget where I've found them, it's so handy having a wishlist!

    Aww have you?! That's it then, I'm getting it with my next order haha! I haven't seen it before, I always find it hard to navigate the lingerie section. I'm gutted it hasn't got a size 12-14 though, I've lost a lot of weight and I'm inbetween sizes, I'm worried the 14-16 may be too big :/

    Hahha! Yes, yes, I know. I just feel so guilty sending things back!! I'm still losing weight, so I might just get it in the 10-12 and it can be my treat for when I get there!! :D

    I have to say I'm a plus size 16 and have a waist and no double chin. Also i know women who are a size 12 who do have a double chin. not sure what that has to do with it.

    Laurap you describe the first picture as the girl being " that big" . I hate to tell you but the average uk women is now a size 16 so that comment could insult an awful lot of women on here. As for her not having a double chin.... Everyone puts the weigh on on different areas. I know lots of plus size ladies who do not have double chins and they are bigger than that model.

    MrsMcX, I have a similar icollection halter corset and had to go for the bigger size of two sizes I was inbetween, but I am a "plus size" woman with big boobs at size sixteen. However I do find icollection a smaller-size fit than other brands.

    Why not order both sizes at the same time so you're not disappointed if one size doesn't fit? Icollection's lingerie range is, 95% of the time, gorgeous. You won't be let down on style! :-)

    Oh yes! Love those photos. Friendly and refreshing. None of that serious, dramatic catwalk look on their faces!

    Those are Lh piccies if I ever saw 'em. It looks 'real', and 'real' women!

    It almost looks fun. The look in their eyes almost seems like they have been laughing through half the shoot! I could be wrong, but still, I love these pics!

    I completely agree. They are much better than some of the other pictures.
