I’m totally in love with Maggie Sottero, and have been dying to try several styles on (especially Fiorella). The problem is that I have been unable to find a place that carries Maggie and ALSO has a plus size sample available (I just went to a place near Pittsburgh last weekend, and the largest Fiorella they had was a 16… and fuggedabout other Maggie styles).
I am in the DC Area, but I’m willing to travel pretty much anywhere on the east coast within about a 250 mile radius/4-5 hour drive (NYC, NJ, PA, DE, VA, NC). Anyone in any of those areas have any success with finding Maggie samples to try that are larger than a 16? I’d probably need a sample in the 22-ish range.
Thanks in advance for any advice!

What about Curvy Girl Bridals? I thought I saw someone post about that shop and it’s all plus size.

Church Street Bridal in Lynchburg has some Sottero samples for sale. I don’t know about sizes, but they are on the shop’s Facebook page.
CSB is a charity shop that gets samples from other stores that they sell to support women’s programs. A number of Bees have bought dresses and accessories from them.

@chrispygal: Hi there… I actually have an scheduled appointment at Curvy Girls tomorrow! 🙂 But, according to their website, Maggie is not one of the designers they carry. But I’m still very excited about the appointment. It’s always exciting to actually be able to try on dresses and not just hold them up!

@mink: I actually contacted CSB via their facebook page earlier this week, and they said that they didn’t have any plus size Maggies available at this time. 🙁
