Hi Bees! Total newbie here, this is my first post ever
I went dress shopping for the first time yesterday and tried on about 8 dresses, 5 of which were Maggie’s. I specifically went to try on Ainsley, but also tried on Delores, Esme, Agnes, and Palartzo. All were beautiful in their own right, but Ainsley and Delores are currently the front-runners. The fit and flare silhouette really flatters my hourglass shape and the beading and lace details on both gowns are exactly what I had envisioned. I have an appointment to go back with some trusted people in 2 weeks, but I’d love some feedback from you Bees in the meantime
Ainsley on left, Delores on right:
Keep in mind that I will need to size up in the Ainsley to accommodate for my bust; I believe the sample was a 12, for reference.

Sorry for the bad cropping, had to get my face out, hopefully you can still get the idea 😉

This is hard! I think I like the detailes of Delores better but I like the dramatic shape of Ainsley on you. So I vote for Delores but with some potential alterations 🙂

Delores! I think the shape is perfect on you and I love that floaty skirt! You look beautiful!

I like the belt on the Deloris better and I also like the buttons on the back. You won’t go wrong with either one! 🙂

Flattering shape, and I like the details all the way down to the very bottom of the dress!

I looooove the Delores, I actually thought that it was going to be my dress until I tried it on (unfortunately I am far too short for it). Both look great on you, but I am kinda biased for the Delores.

Both are beautiful, but I too vote Delores 🙂

I love them both, but the Delores is my favorite of the two 🙂

I am so torn. I went in thinking that Ainsley was going to be THE dress, but Delores is so amazing too. I feel like a bride in both, and looking at the pictures I do feel like Delores is most flattering from the front while Ainsley looks the best from the back. Too bad I can’t mix and match 😉
The other thing is, the Ainsley sample is too small in the bust. I do wonder with the correct size and alterations how different it will look? The consultant did make a point to say that the neckline will lay flatter against my chest. I don’t mind showing off my curves but I also don’t want to feel uncomfortable on my wedding day. She also said that it was possible to add some tulle or other fabric to the sweetheart neckline to make it a bit more modest.
I am truly appreciating all the feedback and input, Bees! Keep it coming 🙂

Delores! The bottom of that dress is so beautiful, it is like you are walking on a cloud!

Delores! Something about the belt on it is super flattering to your figure.

They are both gorgeous, but I personally find Ainsley slightly more flattering on you. You really can’t go wrong with either one though.
