A lot of people are reluctant to buy affordable clothes from Chinese online marketplaces like Alibaba, because, many times, the pictures advertised by the sellers don’t match the actual products. Well, one dedicated seller decided to reassure potential customers that what they see is what they’ll get, by modelling his elegant dresses himself. Talk about going above and beyond, right?
Photos of the male Chinese seller modelling several of his elegant gowns went viral on Reddit a few days ago. They were allegedly posted by a customer of his who requested real-life photos of the dresses and got a lot more than she bargained for. The customer claimed “I found a shop that sold prom dresses and wedding dresses so I asked for real photos rather than stock photos and the seller sent me these of him trying them on”, but that’s most likely a lie, since the same photos can be tracked back to October 2017, when they were originally posted to a closed Facebook group called “ALIEXPRESS AND EBAY LOVERS. But regardless of the real story behind the pics, you can’t help but admire this seller’s dedication.
几天前，这位男卖家给自家网店的几件漂亮裙子做模特的照片在红迪网上被传疯了。据说这是他的一位顾客上传的，这位顾客要求店主提供这些裙子的真实照片，结果就收到了这些照片。这位顾客表示“我找到了一家卖舞会礼服和婚纱的网店，我要求店主提供真实照片而不是图片库里的照片，于是卖家就发来了这些他试穿的照片。”不过这话可能不是真的，因为在2017年10月网络上就出现过同样的照片，当时这些照片是上传到一个名为ALIEXPRESS AND EBAY LOVERS的Facebook群组，不过这个群组已经被关闭。不论这些照片背后的真实故事是什么，你还是不得不敬佩这位卖家的献身精神。
The man in these photos has pretty much become an overnight sensation on social media, with hundreds of people declaring their admiration, complimenting his physique and modelling skills, and even going as far as calling him a “Disney Princess”.
“Hey, 2018. Let a dude wear some dresses. And he’s smiling in the orange one, whatever dress makes a dude smile is the dress that looks the best on a dude,” one Reddit user commented.
“I’d go for the peach one. If a seller sent me this, 100 percent I will buy again,” another person wrote.
Why hire a generic female model to show off your dresses when you can do it yourself?
In case you are interested, after seeing these photos, the dresses are made from polyester, spandex and synthetic leather material, come in a variety of colors, including pink, orange, yellow, peach and purple, and in sizes 2 to 20. And thanks to the seller, you know exactly what they’ll look like.
