Hey girls! I’ve fallen in love with the Maggie Sottero “Natalie”, but since my wedding date is May 28 I don’t think there’s time to order one. I don’t have much experience dress shopping…but do you think there’s any chance I could find one in my size (size 2 petite) off the rack? I haven’t been able to find a pre-owned one anywhere. I’d even fly somewhere if necessary…I loooove that dress.

I doubt you will find a size 2 dress off the rack. Usually the smallest sample size bridal shops carry is a 6. Could u maybe find the dress in a 4 or 6 then have it altered? This is what I did with my Maggie. I fell in love with a discontinued style so I couldn’t order it anywhere. A sample size 6 popped up on ebay so I took a chance. Alterations went great and it fits like a glove (I am also a size 2). Or maybe a shop could order it in still with a rush fee?

You probably won’t find a Maggie dress off the rack smaller than an 8, however you still have time to order. Check out this site: http://www.bestbridalprices.com/maggie-sottero-wedding-dresses-style-natalie-r1062hc-p-62663.html . They can do a rush order for an additional $100 with an 8-10 week delivery. Bridal stores should be able to offer you something similar.

Email the designer/headquarters and ask them for a list of dress shops that purchased this dress in your area. This way, you can narrow the search and call those shops to see if they have your size or something close to your size. GOOD LUCK!!!

I would definitely call a local Maggie retailer and see if they could rush it first and then start calling around and posting ads for a preowned dress. Please keep us updated!!
Also – love this dress, just took a look on the website. Would you wear the tulle wrap?? I love it, too!!

Thanks so much girls! After calling several local retailers, one of whom contacted the Maggie headquartes, I’ve decided to order a size 6 regular that the headquarters has in stock. A hightly recommended wedding seamstress that I called told me that that it shouldn’t be any problem to fit the dress to me. I’m so excited! I’ll probably wear the tulle wrap for the ceremony and take it off for the reception – perfect for a morning wedding. Thanks girls 🙂
