Just curious if anyone has pictures out there of this dress. I love the way it looks on the model but the other 2 internet photos I’ve seen don’t look as flattering. I’m nervous about choosing this dress without trying it on, although a seamstress may be able to make it look good?

Have you tried on others that were a similar shape? Honestly, I do not look good in mermaids, so that didn’t help, but this dress looked awful on me. I have had other mermaids that didn’t look nearly as bad, but I dubbed this the “plank” dress because of the (lack of) shape it gave me. I tried it on during my very first shopping trip ever and it was just one the consultant pulled for me. As for the dress itself, it is pretty like most Maggies, but the style left a lot to be desired. Her dresses usually pull things in and give great shape… notsomuch with this one, maybe because it looks like a top over a separate skirt?

Id say try on anything similar! Or call all Maggie Sottero Suppliers around you and find it to try on! I personally would never buy a dress without trying it on! Especially as important as this dress is! BEST OF LUCK!!!

@Amaryllis:Thanx. for showing your picture. It’s supposed to be slim a-line dress but I am expecting so I can’t try em on til january and I was planning to purchase a used dress. I was really into this one though since it’s got everything I want- the silky satin, beaded lace, crystal sash, lace up back, detailed train.
