@treejewel19: thanks!

@Maria444: I wouldn’t say it was heavy, but it was hot. I also wore a full slip.  Since my fittings were during the summer and first thing in the morning, I thought it was the salon with the a/c not really running yet.  Day of, Oct. 26th, I realized it was the dress & slip.  I could sit, although I felt like I was going to fall off the chair.  The one thing I couldn’t do was kneel – we had a Catholic ceremony, and at my last fitting I realized I better make sure I could stand, sit, kneel, repeat.  I couldn’t get up from the kneel, so luckily the priest let us stay sitting.

@HisAngel:  Thank you! That’s super nice of you. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up buying her because I’m getting married on the beach in Mexico and she looks light, but there is some HEAVY satin underneath that lace. I’m having something very similar custom-made though with just a light silk underneath. It’ll be a little less dramatically mermaid as well.

@Maria444:  Thanks! i haven’t spent a whole bunch of time in her, but I did not find the lace to be itchy at all. There was no beading on it which I quite liked (more comfy that way) so nothing scratched either.

In Maggie sizes, I am a 14 top/waist, and 18 bottom…. My dress is a 14 (because it’s A-line, the dress flared out at the hips and the 14 was able to fit well).

I personally don’t like ballgowns (I’m only 5′, so they swallow me up… plus, my Fiance has stated he hates big poufy dresses because he wants to be able to hug me without tons of poufy fabric in the way!), and I think an A-line will be gorgeous on you!

Ruching is every plus-sized gal’s friend (especially asymmetric ruching!), and I loved the asymmetric ruching on the BACK of my dress, too (it worked well to minimize my backside/hips).

Here’s my Maggie Sottero Jessie:

Not the greatest picture – the salon would not let us take pics so we had to sneak this one. I also was unable to get a pic of the back, sadly.

Chiffon, as much as I LOVE it, was not nice to my giant hips… here’s me in another Maggie (Lillian… it’s now discontinued). MUCH less flattering, but at least you’ll be able to see what chiffon does to a pear-shaped girl for comparison!

 

 

P.S. I am also an August bride, and my dress is Organza… it’s NOT heavy or bulky at all! Very comfortable, and feels lovely.

Maggie Sottero Fiorella….bridal sz 12…no alterations.  I too am ‘busty’….so I liked the one shoulder….made me feel a little more comfortable than going totally strapless!

@Maria444:  I’m sorry for your crappy experience =/ I’ve never been to a salon that doesn’t have the dresses hanging in clear plastic bags though? They need pictures on the bags because yeah… who can tell??

@Maria444:  Thanks!! I love my Jessie. 🙂

I’m sorry you had a crummy experience… can’t imagine a factory line for dresses. The place I wound up buying my dress from was sooo welcoming and comfortable! And she didn’t pressure me in any way or make me feel uncomfortable at all. She actually ENCOURAGED me to take lots of time considering, and have my friend take lots of pictures, because, as she put it, “this is a huge decision, no need to rush!!”

And, best of all, she had the model photos of each dress attached to the clear plastic bag so you could SEE the dress! Loveee my boutique. Wish you lived in New Jersey!

 

Hope you have a better experience next time, I can’t wait to see which Maggies you like! 🙂
