Maggie Sottero’s Harlow is my dream dress. However, I have no idea what it would look like on my curvy, street size 18 frame, and I kind of doubt I’ll be able to find a sample I can squeeze into.
Has anyone here tried on/worn the Harlow or a dress with a similar cut? If so, I’d love to see pics, hear your impressions, etc. It looks AMAZING on all the slim Bees I’ve seen wearing it, but I’m kind of scared to just order it with no concept of how it might fit me.

I think the dress is absolutely gorgeous. If it’s your dream dress, I say go for it! I ordered my dream dress sight-unseen (there wasn’t a sample in any shop anywhere near me in England), and it worked out beautifully in the end. Your seamstress can fix any fit problems for you once it arrives.
Have you tried on any with similar shapes? I’ve heard that Maggie dresses are very flattering to plus-size figures, as the corset and internal structuring supports and enhances your curves. Have you tried calling around to your area salons, to see if they carry the Harlow, and in what size?

I think all of her dresses are beautiful!! Im getting the Maggie dress in Fiorella in the Pearl color. I am a plus size (20) and it fits really well. Get one with a corset!

Harlow is my dress in lt gold! I used to work in a bridal shop and let me tell you–that dress looks good on ANY size! The cut of it really is perfect for any size, I’m not working on commission here so go for it! Just make sure that you get your alterations so that it does get fitted to you, if it’s too tight (or too loose for that matter!) it could look “off”. Let me know how it goes!

I am a street size 18 and I tried on the Harlow. It actually looked really good and would have been my first choice if I hadn’t liked a different one a little better.
