I am also interested because I LOVE Maggie Sottero and I am also plus size (16/18) I have tried on one of her gowns before and they do fit very well! However, it is not the one I absolutely love and I wasn’t allowed to take pictures (bummer)

@freakingoutnow: I would love to see pics when you get your dress. I love Jenna!!! Nowhere close by has it a size larger than an 8 and I need a 16 in wedding dresses.

@cs71904: I purchased a Maggie Sottero “Grace” unfortunately I got it a size too small in a 20. I have it for sale if you are interested. $550.

I tried on the Lillian {I’m plus sized} and it was beautiful – I couldn’t believe how it gave me an actual waist!!

I tried on (and fell in love with – yet did not buy) the Melissa Brooch.  I am a street size 20, and the dress was an 18w.

Sorry ladies…i dont know techinically what the size is to be considered plus size. Im a size 14 on the street…and i know plus size starts at that (and i bought from there) so i dont know. I just dont want to offend anyone….:(

Anywho…at a 14+ I bought a maggie dress. Also the Melissa Brooch

I have melissa brooch as well.  Don’t have any pics though.  The good thing about Maggie Sottero for plus size brides is the corset, they are forgiving if you lose/gain a few pounds and they really create that hourglass shape.  Very happy with my dress.

TOTALLY agree. When dress shopping i wasnt into “names” etc, i didnt know any designers. I happened to try on a maggie dress and i could not BELIEVE the difference it made..it was the key reason as to why I ended up purchasing this dress. All of a sudden i had hips!! (I HAVE NEVER HAD HIPS!!! *laugh*)

I found Maggie dresses to be more flattering.  The corset helps a lot.

I’m wearing a size 16 Maggie in this picture.  It’s the day my dress arrived, so I had to try it on… it’s not the finished put-together look.  I also found that Maggie dresses run much closer to street size, which helped mentally.  I wear a street 16 and needed a size 16 Maggie.

@marieta: You look great in your dress!! How tall are you? I think we have a similar build and I ordered a 16 so I am hoping mine fits as well as yours. I was a 16 when I bought it but I have lost 15 pounds so I’m more of a heavy 14 I think at this point? I don’t know anymore because everything I try on fits differently. I’m only 5’3″ though. Your waist looks tiny! I love that dress!
