Hey bees, i am having a little problem, i am in love with maggie sottero SaBelle, now the sabelle i tried on in the bridal store was what the lady told me was equivilant to a uk 10. what is that in us sizing? i cant stretch our budget enough to buy the dress from a store so im searching for one second hand. im just finding it hard to find one in my size as they all have us sizes in them and ive been told maggie sizes isnt the same as street sizes nor the same as national dress sizes!!
ive got my eye on a secon dhand sabelle in us 6, what is this in uk??

Hmm.. It didn’t really post right but basically size > bust > waist > hips Do you know your measurements or the measurements of the dress you tried on?
This is what I found for sizes (USA):

I just found this http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/community/forums/thread/129614 site and it said “UK 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22
USA 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20″
Hope that can help.

be really careful….. i’m a size two (my bust is 33) so i bought a size 2….. only to find out my chest is being smushed, and the torso length of the dress is too short!!
everything else fits perfectly, except my boobs are coming out (im a c cup).
my size: 33c-24-35

Hmm, yah it’s a little conflicting. I am around a 32.5c, 26 (when I suck my waist in… otherwise it’s like 29″!) and 36 hips… I bought a size 4 hoping that the waist would fit because that was the only measurement I was stretching/sucking it in to fit…
Anyway, I’m 5’9″ and pretty proportionate in size and the dress size 4 fit perfectly head to toe. I think you have to be careful though… like my sister has a much shorter torso than me so she had lots of trouble finding any dresses that fit her and girls in bigger sizes that might have bigger breasts or longer torsos or whatever just might want to check.You can just look at the sizing chart and compare your measurements in inches/cm. I trust maggie’s sizing charts.
It’s always best to find a store first and try the dress on. I took a chance on a used Maggie because it was 1/4 the price of what I can buy them in Switzerland and I got it over a year in advance so I would have time to sell it and get something else in case it didn’t work out.

I love this Maggie Sottero Sabelle design. My only concern is the bust area. I think for someone with smaller busts like myself may not look good in this sweetheart neckline, even with padding. Any advice?
I am also still looking for a used size 10-12 in diamond white if anyone is willing to sell theirs.
