Most Maggie gowns have a corset back. Given that you say that you have the measurements as listed on the website and your gown most likely has either a corset back or interior corset, you will probably be wearing some sort of spanx/long line bra to smooth things out (doesn’t everyone? lol) I have a feeling it will fit you like a dream.

Do make sure though that if you have any problems you take it to a good seamstress.

It sounds like you made the right choice in ordering the 16, so I wouldn’t worry!  The corset will help, but your seamstress will be able to take in the bust if needed!  Maybe you will get lucky and only need the hem done!  You will look beautiful once it has been properly fitted, so try not to stress about it too much!  We want pictures when you get your dress!

It will be fine don’t worry. Like others have said the corset back makes things a lot easier.

Ok so I was in between a 16 and an 18 so I bught the 16. We did have to move the panel a little bit but it was no big deal. The dress fit me perfectly and I am a street size 16. You will be fine and it will fit nicely, and most Maggie dresses are too big in the bust for most people. You cna have it taken in there if you need to. For me, I just needed that and a hem, bustle, and move the panel of the corset. Good luck and stop worrying!

I’m so glad you made this post.  I’m currently a street size 16, though I’m trying to lose weight.  When they measured me though they said I was in between the 16/18.. probably a little closer to the 18.  I didn’t want to pay the extra $100, though, so I ordered the 16.  I’ve only lost 10lbs so far though (though I feel like I am tighter.. I really should’ve done measurements too and not just relied on the scale…) and I’m extremely nervous about how the dress will fit.  It should be in sometime in October.  Yipes!  This post makes me think it might just be OK, though. 

Crossing my fingers here for both of us! 🙂

I have a feeling that with those 15 pounds lost, the 16 might actually be a little loose on you! But the corset could very well fix that, so really, don’t worry – it will be perfect!

I was a street size 14/16 when I purchased a floor sample Maggie in size 14. It was a little tight in the hips, but I got it on, so Maggies are pretty true to size. I’ve lost close to 10 pounds and have seven more weeks to go, so I’m hoping it will fit like a glove by then (though I do expect a few alterations). Good luck!

I hope it fits the way you want! I want a Maggie dress and I LOVE reading about plus size brides who have worn or will wear her dresses!

MrsMedinaJr- You have the cutest shape!
