    Hmmm I should really read what I type before committing to submitting (the post)! lol

    Not about the size of the needle, but the quality of the sewing? heheheh

    Ah. Oh. Right.

    Sort of, it's not what you've got, more what you do with it...?

    Apparently so I'm told. Normally by sewing needle wielding men as opposed to knitting needle wielding men (just to take the analogy that little bit further!)

    Thought I'd start up this post instead of creating a new topic...

    Has anyone else noticed the increased use of photoshop on the models? The nex exposed model looks like something out of a comic book! I know that a lot of models get photoshopped but it's getting to a point where it's difficult to tell what the item they're wearing actually looks like. Maybe it's just me preferring to see the fit, material, etc instead of a airbrushed model.

    That model doesn't look real to me, of course I know she is, but something bout the pic makes her look really strange It'd put me off buying actually.... I suspect they're the pics supplied by the manufacturer?

    Yeah I think the manufacturer provides the pictures, and yeah she doesn't look real at all.

    I've not bought any lingerie from Lh before, but after Hubs treated me to a lovely set for Valentines Day, I decided to take a peek myself.

    I've spent my free time this arvo traulling through various styles and price ranges, and I am amazed at some of the 'photographs' that have been supplied to illustrate the garment. Like you, I've ruled out styles I like purely because of the promo pic - I don't know how they get away with it.

    But, my biggest annoyance this afternoon has been finding things I like, only to discover they're 'One Size' and 'to fit 8-16' for example... How can something fit both a size 8 and a size 16?!?!?!? Even something made from a stretchy material couldn't possibly accomodate both sizes.

    Lovehoney gets top marks from me for couple-friendly products and a pleasant site to browse through, but the fact they publish these photographs is a big let down... There's no need for it!

    With the types of pics Genie has pointed out, it's impossible to get an accurate idea of the quality/thickness/sheerness/flow/tone of the material!!! Or what they'll look like on a real-life woman!

    The photoshopping is very over the top. It's probably the style they are after, aside from the outfit, it makes people stop and have a good look for a while. So obviously, the dramatic photoshopping will create a reaction thus showing other people thus more exposure of the product therefore perhaps a purchase of the product from a possible shock factor.

    Model may not be entirely real but it's a fantasy figure to represent the company. Someone to remember possibly?

    I've stopped buying 'one size' items because they don't fit me, they're always too big because of the stretchiness of the material :(
