Ordering from Victoria's Secret is like going on a blind date

IMO they are very similar, but def. not the same. Or the pictures are photoshopped differently.
3a/b, CG mostly.
Mexico City.
Start from the bottom up and you can definitely see that it's the same. It's the lighting plus the first model wearing white underneath that makes it look different. Plus the top model is posed differently and is a bit fuller.
Maybe you are all right.
It s the upper part what I see different, shoulders, breasts, arms, but not sure now.
3a/b, CG mostly.
Mexico City.
It's the exact same top.
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
Yep, I'm in the "same top" camp. Just differnent lighting, models, and what the model is wearing "underneath" that differs.
I also think it's the same top. The difference is that the second model took a nap in hers (at least that what it looks like).

How are those linen beach pants working out for you? I keep coming back to them, but haven't pulled the trigger. I want to buy 3 pairs, but I don't need anymore pants.

I love my linen pants! I'd love them even more if I had a defined waist. Like with all pants, the fit is better when there is some tapering there.

There is a difference between those two sweaters. You can see it across the breast. The white band there is solid, irrespective of the white bra underneath in the first pic. That may or may not be due to photo manipulation. Again, regardless, the sweater is not of the quality I was expecting, but it'll do because I haven't found anything that is more representative of what I was looking for.

I'm wearing the sweater right now, and the sleeves barely reach my elbows without being scrunched up. And, I'm wearing the largest size because I wanted something slouchy and beachy.
OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!
the tops are even different lengths and the stripes are different too!

It's not the same top. Look at the stitching over the bosom. on th first sweater it's almost like a bikini top with a close-knit weave.

Yeah I thought they were slightly different too, because looks like a closer knit over the bust in the first picture but if you look carefully you can see it is actually the white bikini underneath making it appear that way.

The second pic it is more rumpled like needs an iron lol and the way the second girl is standing raises the neckline as well, but if you compare the pattern it is exactly the same.
Same top.

Modeled differently, in different lighting, and the whole white bikini thing.

Same top. I think the models are different sizes and are wearing different undergarments, but it's the same top.

Plus it's creating somewhat of an illusion because one is just wearing a bikini and one is wearing pants. It's definitely the same top, just lighting and what they are wearing underneath is different.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
I've always had good luck with Victoria's. My only problem is I don't look like those models.

I get tired of everything being so sheer...another way to cut corners and quality, played off as "sexy."

That's not necessarily a problem, BTW!

2C/3A -- wurly!
I'm bored so I spent way too much time comparing every inch, position, model, lighting, undergarments. To me it's the same shirt. I rarely like loose knit things but I actually kind of like this one.
Some of my favorite tops and panties are from VS. I have some long sleeve jersey tees from them that are years old and so soft and nice. Love them. But some of their stuff is certainly crap, especially their acrylic sweaters.

I think this thread is really fascinating in how people are seeing these images differently.

It seems so freaking obvious to me they are the same top! [Sorry.]

Naturallycurly.com is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. I just love this crazy place.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

The bras are kind of hit or miss. I own one really cute top I bought at the VS store.

But I've never actually ordered anything from them online, unless you count this dress my mom ordered for my birthday several years ago.

It looked so hot in the catalog...I had to order it in the smallest size possible because I'm petite and I was very skinny then. Unfortunately, when it finally arrived and I tried it on, I was disappointed. The material was weird and it simply billowed out on my body.

I really want to try their bikinis and their halter tops and maybe even some of the shoes, but I'm kind of apprehensive.
