I didn’t try it on, but its beautiful! I wore Maggie and their dresses are so well made and flattering.

ut0pia :  the shoulder straps are pretty, but seriously restrictive. When fitted like the model, you can’t raise your arms.

I have actually tried this on. I am a bridal consultant and it came to the store for a trunk show. The straps were surprisingly not restricting like other off the shoulder gowns because they made them with elastic, so it stretches. I personally felt like the hips were realllly tight, more restricting than other Maggie gowns I have tried. All that being said- I looked like a BOMBSHELL! The fit is beautiful. I’ll see if I still have pictures.

I really don’t like the straps. Normally I’m a fan of off shoulder dresses, but in this case it looks just like somebody made a mistake when sewing them on. It just doesn’t fit the overall style of the dress, but this is just my opinion.

ut0pia :  I had a Maggie Sottero but it was not this one. I loved mine and this one is pretty also!  Mine was in a champagne color. Her lace details are amazing. I will say her dresses are heavy and they run a little small. I am normally a 6 and I got an 8. I think this is normal with bridal though but just dont be surprised.

ut0pia :  thank you! I really did love it, but in the end I ended up with a lace strapless fit and flare dress. my username is a spinoff of one of our wedding hashtags haha ๐Ÿ™‚

So I didn’t try on the Afton, but I suggest you look at the Maggie sottero Saffron. Similar off the shoulder straps which I loved, but a bit more ballgown-like (rather than going in mid thigh like Afton does). Definitely a dress with presence ๐Ÿ™‚
