Ironically, I tried Jenna on today! It was a dress I never had any desire to try on before, and on a whim too I was thought “hey it’s different!” I ended up falling in love with it, and now it is has made me very confused! It was very figure flattering, and I felt like it was different without being over the top! 

I can see what you are saying about how on the Maggie site it looks much fuller, the one I had tried on was full but you could tell it had been around and looked a little limp.I’m also only 4’11” so it was hard to get the full effect on my body! I even went back and looked at the pictures I took in it and it is 100% not as full as it is show on the Maggie site,because let’s face it they can do whatever they want to make that dress look as good as they want! If you want I can send you my pictures if it will help you ease your mind.  I am sure you could wear something underneath to achieve the volume you desire if you wanted it to be fuller.

Don’t have second thoughts though, it is SUCH a gorgeous dress not matter what fullness it has, and you fell in love with it for a reason so just stick with your gut!  Think of how beautiful it looks on YOU!

In some of my other posts I have me in the dress (it’s my dress too) and I love it…it has just enough poof for me, anymore and I probably would not have bought it actually..and I def. think it makes a statement.

I am a Jenna bride, and I LOVE it.  I think it is elegant and yet fun.  I will be wearing a hoop under mine which fluffs out the skirt a bit to make it fuller and also keeps all the fabric from catching between my legs when I walk.  I think it is the perfect amount of fullness and definitely makes a statement!  It is a gorgeous dress and you do not see a lot of styles that are similar to it.  Check out this thread – it has pics of me in it wearing a hoop with it – scroll down for a few close-up pics.  greenek2 posted a pic of her in Jenna on that thread as well.  FYI – I am 5’3″ish and the sample I am wearing is a size 10.  Hope that helps!

@greenek2:  Haha…I am totally following you on all these Jenna threads!

This is my dress too! I never saw it online until after I got home from trying it on. I actually like how it isn’t as poofy on me as it is in the picture, it was a little too much for me. I’m sure they could add some kind of crinoline to it if that is what you’re going for, but I think it’s perfect (for me) just the way it is.

@KT3221:

I think they add loads of crinoline when they take the photos to promote the gowns.  I have a different Maggie that my daughter didn’t end up wearing, and it does not look at all like the photo IMO, except if you look at the detail scallop and beading on the bodice.  That is why I don’t like to say which one it is in the classified section, because I think it looks much better in person, than on the Maggie website!!!  Oh, and this gown has loads of crinoline underneath, but I am sure they really ramp that crinoline up for the photos!!

I am wearing a hoop with mine – I tried it on with the hoop as well, and I loved it!  It added a bit of poof without being WAY too much, plus it keeps all the fabric off my legs so I don’t trip on my skirt.  I’ll post the pic here so you don’t have to find the thread again.  I got my salon to include a hoop when I purchased my dress!

I haven’t looked much for bridesmaid dresses and will be leaving it mostly up to them to decide – but I do want knee length, cocktail dresses in the dark purple color that I love (and as close to the same fabric as possible).  Other than that I don’t care too much!

I didn’t have anything on when I tried mine on, and as far as BM dresses… We haven’t started looking.

I have sparkly chandeleir earrings, a couple of rhinestone hair pins (small, nothing much..I may get something more) for my hair, not wearing a necklace, and have two pretty bracelets. I am wearing a 90″ simple veil (comes a couple inches past the train) and some white touch ups 3 1/2 heels, and hair up. lol….my wedding is in 3 months, so I am coming down to the wire.
