When they measured me for my Maggie, I was the same size as my “street size.”  However, I made her order me one size up… I’d rather them take in the gown then have to let it out if I were to fluxuate in size.

I ordered it in September… they have a tentative ship date of January.  I am really nervous to see how it fits!  The sample I tried on was 3 sizes too large, but it seemed to fit ok (she didn’t have to use clamps on the back). I’m kinda confused about how I could fit into that sample ok, but be sized 3 sizes less….

I’ll post my experience once my dress comes in!

I’m a 2/4 in street dresses, and now I know why! LOL 🙂 My Maggie is a size 4 (although it’s not arriving until March, so I haven’t tried it on yet). When she measured me, the seamstress at the salon said that my hips and waist are a perfect size 4 and my chest is exactly a size 2!

Gonna have to get a couple of those chicken cutlets, I guess…. 🙂

My street size and Maggie size were both a 4. The first woman measured my bust and waist at size 4 and my hips at 6. The other shop owner disagreed and measured me again. She said i was a four. I do have some hips on me, but I trust them. I am a little concerned about fluctuation though.

@ Ms.Pascua: I’m getting the Vogue so it does have a corset back, but I don’t mind getting a little extra help anyway! Maybe I’ll even have some cleavage. 🙂

I wear a street size 2/4.  My dress was Jorie, with a corset back, and I got a size 6.  It was perfect, no alterations for size or anything — but I didn’t want the corset lacing to be very wide, so the shop owner said to go up a size.  If I’d wanted the lacing wider, I could have gone with a 4.

ETA: my boobs weren’t nearly a size 6, but with a really good strapless bra and alteration of the straight neckline to a sweetheart (which was my preference, not something I had to do) it was great.

I’m a size 2, and my Maggie dress is a size 4. Fits like a dream through the waist and hips. The bust will need to be adjusted because my boobs are practically nonexistent, but that was to be expected. And the hem will need to come up just a touch – an inch, maybe two at the most.

Hi there, 

 I just ordered my Maggie COCO in a size 6 on saturday. I am a street size 4/6… the saleslady had me try two similar Maggie dresses (one in a 6, one in an 8) to get a feel for what my size should be.

My Maggie is the same size as my street size and fits perfectly. It is a corset back, so that is probably part of the reason the fit is so nice.

im generally a 4/6..but my MS was an 8. the corset back allows you a +/- 5lb fluctuation. if the dress is too big you’ll get a tighether corset look, if its too big it’ll be wider.

Depending on the brand, I am either 4 or 6 street size. At Express and Limited I wear 4 but at department stores its usually 6. The size 8 Maggie sample I tried on was perfect. The bridal shop ordered my dress in a size 10 (made me very angry). The size 10 was definitely too big, had to be altered and the corset was laced as tight as it could go. Still had too much room.

My dress was ordered in late May and arrived in late June.
