Stunning Bridal Ads Feature a Size-14 Model -- About Time! (PHOTOS)

david's bridal spring ad campaignIt's almost the start of wedding season! (Isn't it always?) As we're still knocking back eggnog and wrapping presents, it's kind of hard to care. But, one company's figured out a way to grab our attention, whether we're tying the knot in six months or not. David's Bridal's new ad campaign features a plus-sized model.


A gorgeous, curvy woman in a wedding dress shouldn't be surprising news. But it is! For all the body positivity in the world today, many designers still like their models unrealistically tall and toothpick thin.

Not David's Bridal. For the 2016 spring ad campaign, some brilliant peeps decided to showcase a model who's the same size as their average customer.

That would not be 00. Or 2. Or 4. Or 6. Or even 10. It's 14.

The lucky "bride" in the shots is Mercy Watson, a beautiful Australian model, who recently shared her thoughts on the campaign on her Facebook page:

Had an amazing time with @davidsbridal Shooting their Spring 2016 campaign in London Town. I'm so proud to be working...
