    Your body is shaped very similar to mine, I tried Davids Bridal and LOVE so many gowns. I think there are better styles for you than these. Give it a try!

    I like dress A and the one that cow told you looked bad on you, the most. Don’t stress how little your dress costs, the way it makes you feel is more important.

    I am sorry you are having dress stress issues, and that consultant was extremely rude and should never had said that to you. That said, I actually prefer dress “A” on you. It looks beautiful on you, IMHO. I can’t comment on the Maggie because I you can’t show us a picture. I think you should with what you feel most comfortable in.

    I think you look AMAZING in dress A and dress B. They are much better than the third and fourth dress – that consultant should be fired.

    Get a dress that you love and you feel comfortable in.  A cheaper dress may seem practical now, but if you regret it later it won’t be worth the money you save!

    First of all, mad props to your FI and his (correct and awesome) opinion that your wedding shouldn’t be about settling, especially when it comes to your dress! 🙂

    Second, shame on that bridal consultant for saying a line like “girls like you.” Ugh! Not cool. And the dresses she suggested aren’t that great, IMO.

    Really, you should wear what you feel beautiful and comfortable in. I mean yes, you want to pick something that’s flattering, but ultimately, if you feel beautiful in the Maggie, then go for it! And it seems like Maggie dresses are exceptionally flattering. So if it’s what you have your heart set on, and if you can get it without breaking the bank, then in my opinion, you should get that one!

    (FWIW, I think the first “cheap” dress really looks nice on you! But if you don’t love it, you made the right choice not to get it.)

    I agree with @futuremrshc:. The first one you put a deposit on and the first one you listed after that both look really good on you. They both accentuate your figure nicely. The shop clerk who said the one looked bad on you was just being an ass.

    Sorry, hard to comment on the Maggie dress without seeing it on you. :/

    OP: Review that shop on EVERY website you can. Consultants should NEVER say anything like that about a bride in a dress. Even if it’s true. (which is isn’t in your case!)

    I didn’t even read your post all the way through- I just looked at the photos for an unbiased opinion and honestly like Dress A the best (regardless of price). Then I read your post and Dress A is the cheapest- wow! If you like it, I’d say go for it….

    But the Maggie dress that was posted last is a completely different style from the other dresses.  Hard to judge without seeing a pic of you actually wearing it 🙂

    I would say go with what you like the best and what fits your overall look/feel of the wedding.

    I really like dress A.  It is very figure flattering.  Dresses B and C are okay.  Dress D looks reminds me of an vintage prom dress.  I don’t know exactly why.  Did you try on the Maggie?  It may look lovely on you, but it would be hard to tell without seeing how it looks on you.

    I actually really like A the best on you. I think it’s gorgeous. I like B second best. I don’t know what that consultant was talking about. Your figure looks great in that dress.

    Dress A I love on you.  As a plus size girl who got a Sottero and Midgley Fit-N-Flare.  I say go for it.  You can always resell the Maggie and recoup some of the money back.  Be brave and get the dress you love.
