Has anyone over a size 16 ever bought and worn Maggie Sottero Bronwyn dress? Did it suit a fuller figure? I really love iot but am scred to try it on.
The assistants keep pushing me towards aline and big bottomed dresses but they just make me look even bigger.

@flossy32: Hey, welcome to the bee! The Bronwyn is a gorgeous dress. It’s worth trying on to satisfy your thoughts and curiosity if nothing else, at least then you won’t always be wondering.

Please try it on!
All of the bridal salons I went to kept bringing out empire gowns and poofy bottom gowns because I am plus sized. I took a leap and tried this one on and it brought me and my maids to tears. That is when we knew it was the one 🙂
This dress flatters my figure like no other dress I tried on and it’s curve appeal is phenomenal. I am a sz20 and here is a photo of me in a size 18 ivory (a little too small and please ignore my spanx showing lol). I ordered the ivory lace over the light gold color in the stock photos.
This dress is classic elegance, comfortable, and makes me feel beautiful!

Thank you everyone! The only thing I want to mention is that if the bridal boutique talks you into a higher size don’t do it. The keyhole and neckline in this dress are hard to maintain the integrity of. Like a dummy, I ordered mine a size larger per the boutique’s recommendation and the woman who did the alterations ruined the neckline of the dress leaving excess puffs of fabric that bulge between my shoulders and bosom. It no longer looks like the one above. I’m very worried about what I’m going to do on Saturday and so far I’ve safety pinned the heck out of the puffy fabric excess she left in the shoulder area to try and deal. If it fits you like a glove, order it in that exact size and love your curves ladies! : )
