I have long debated displaying the clothing I sell on a model versus a dress form and have come to various conclusions over the years. The dress form gives the item a clean look and is less distracting to the shopper. A model, however, gives the piece a little life and shows the customer what it will look like on a real body. The concern here is that the model may not be the same size or shape as the shopper and it may be clipped on them in a way that may inaccurately represent fit. From a logistical stand point, there is a lot more work involved in using a live model and therefore the time involved and cost will go up. I have used friends to model things in the past, but now that I am getting a little more comfortable in front of the camera, I thought I would give it a try. Here are a few photos that I have added to listings. What do you think, model? dress form? or both?
