Sorry I can’t help but that’s a gorgeous dress.  I just googled it.  Good luck in your search.

I think it’s a newer dress, which would explain why you haven’t found real brides wearing it or why stores in your area don’t carry it. (I actually also considered this dress–I ended up with a similar one (Allure 8601)–same appliques and slightly dropped waist, but strapless and trumpet.) Hard as it is, if it were me, I would let go of the dress and try to love one that was available to try on. But if you’re very keen on it, travel: find a place where you *can* try the dress, and have a shop closer to home order it.

Good luck!

When I was shopping for my dress, I had a few Maggies in mind, and here’s what I learned. Maggie Sottero has a borrowing program, where you can pay any shop that carries Maggies to ship it in for you. I believe the price is $50. If you’re really in love with this dress, you can find any store that carries Maggies and have them bring it in. Hope that helps!

Also, some bridal salons will order the sample for you but it will cost you a fee.  For instance before I found my dress I had wanted to try this Demetrios dress and no salon in our area had it.  One store said for $50 they would bring it in for me to try on and that $50 would then be put toward either that dress or a different one from their salon.  It’s worth a shot.

I tried this on yesterday. To be honest, I did not WANT to try it on because of the hanger appeal (or lack there of) BUT our helpful bridal consultant insisted I try it and it is actually one of the top two contendors. We have pics (not uploaded yet) but its a very difficult to actually see how it fit. The model in the ad pictures does not do it justice.

i was in LOVE with this dress from the photo, but it was one that i had to rule out once i tried it on because i’m 5’2″ and the dramatic dropped waist made me look like a dwarf. not sure how tall you are but, if you’re short, that’s definitely something to think about 😉

here’s a cell-phone photo of me in it, so you get an idea of what i’m talking about. for a refernce, my hand is on my hipbone. i don’t have a photo of the back because it was a bigger size and was all clamped up. you can see in my face how pissed i was that it wasn’t going to work! even though it wasn’t right for me, it’s still one of my most favorite maggie gowns ever!

It’s ivory with pewter accents, it just happens to be a very bright room so it looks white in the pictures.
