I’m also a Maggie bride and my dress is a size 4. It fits like a glove. I normally wear a 0 or a 2 in a dress from most stores. 

Hope it works out! 🙂

My Maggie dress is the same size as my street size. If it has a corset back, that will help a lot.

I wear a 10 in jeans if I get them in the juniors section and my Maggie dress size is a 10 :o)

I usually wear a four. I ordered an 8 because of my hips. I measured really close to a 6 but we ordered a size up and I will have it altered down.

I had a Soterro and Midgley, not sure if the sizing is the same as Soterro but I had to order 2 size up from my street size.

I have a Sottero and my street size is 8-10 and my dress is a 10.  I agree with the PP who said corseting helps big time!

At the time I went dress shopping I was 138 lbs….was wearing a 6 or an 8 ….had to order a size 10 cause of my curvy hips….the rest of me was more like an 8.

hmm…I’m backwards from everybody else.  I wear a street size 8 and my Maggie is a 6.  It fits perfectly through the hips, but it’s big in the northern region.

I tried on some Maggies and found that similar to most wedding dresses, they run a size or two small (I’m normally an 8 but needed a 10 or 12 in most wedding dresses I tried on). The corseting in the Maggies allowed my normal size 8 to fit but I still felt that the larger size worked better. Good luck! My sister in law wore a Maggie and looked stunning 🙂

I’m a street size 6 or 8 and ordered a ten, although I probably could get away with an 8. I tried on both an 8 and a 10 sample to get a better idea and they both fit the same, so I ordered the bigger size because it’s easier to make a dress smaller than bigger.
