I got a maggie sottero dress and the store messed up when ordering the color. The day I ordered the dress I tried on the White dress and asked to have that ordered. Well, the lady in the store ordered me Diamond White – so when I got there to try on the dress the other day I realized it was not white. The tag says Diamond White but it looks more ivory to me.
It is too late to order a new dress and I really am not that keen on buying a sample off the floor. So, I guess I’m stuck with the one I have- my question for anyone who had a maggie sottero diamond white dress — did it look more like Ivory to you? I wonder if the manufacturer messed up or something because I was under the impression that there was little difference between white and diamond white.

I had a diamond white Maggie. My dress was more of an ivory but in flash photos, it appears VERY white. It just worked well for me, because I’m fair and stark white flushed me out. It’s all your preference, however. I’d call the dress store and ask them what they can do…they might work with you! 🙂
Here’s a few pictures if this helps!

My dress was a diamond white maggie sottero. Here is a picture, to give you an idea of the color.

I have a diamond white dress and it is REALLY white! Maybe they mislabeled it?

I have a maggie sottero mia in diamond white. It’s def not stark white. It’s in between white and ivory. The dress I ordered I originally wanted in white, but the sales women said white makes this dress look cheap and takes away from the elegance. So, I ordered diamond white.

I’m wearing an Alfred Angelo in diamond white and yes it’s definitely more ivory than white – which makes no sense to me, "diamond" sounds whiter than white. The lady in the shop told me she thinks a man must have named the colour 😉 If the store ordered you the wrong colour then they are at fault and should be able to help you out? This is a good reminder to me to go and check the colour of my dress now it’s arrived and make sure it’s right, rather than wait for my fittings. I hope you can sort it out!

Mine looks very white but I wonder if the fabric has something to do with it, mine is organza. Look at it again…is is possible that it only looks offwhite when it is next to somehing that is a "true white"?
I guess my point is…that unless the dress is next to something that is totally white…the dress is going to seem white and no one will notice…not even you. Make sure you get a veil that is also diamond white. As long as everything matches and is diamond white…you should look fine.
I am sorry this happened and am surprised. Mine looks very white BUT other bridal places told me I needed to buy an offwhite veil because diamond white was more like cream..but mine was totally not cream. So who knows. Maybe "Organza diamond white" is different than "Satin or Silk Diamond White"
Think Positive…it really is white-ish! 🙂 It will be ok..you will be beautiful and everyone will see a WHITE dress 🙂

Not sure if I will be able to describe this very well but…when I was trying on dresses, it seemed like the diamond white was more of a tarnished white (for lack of a better word!) Not meaning that it looked dirty, but it wasn’t as true white as the regular white color. If that makes sense haha.
Don’t know if that helps?

I have a Maggie dress ("Melena") in diamond white and I found it a lot more flattering on my skin tone than regular white. And for everyone’s info, I had also checked out the maggie website, where in the FAQ section I found:
What is the difference between White and Diamond White?
Our Diamond White is a very light ivory. It has a beautiful softness that makes it very flattering on all skin tones. White is a true, pure white color that would give you that “wedding white” look.

Thanks for all of the comments, I really appreciate it. I ended up going back and trying on a few dresses and after taking a breather from the initial shock of having the different color I really do think it is better for my skin tone than the other options available. Plus seeing you all in your ivory color/diamond white dresses looking great helped too. I am back from my first ‘panic’ moment of the wedding planning process and I’m excited about my dress.
Thanks again for those of you who responded!

You know I just went for my first fitting this week and when the woman was unwrapping the dress from it’s packaging (a Diamond White Maggie ‘Mia’) I thought it looked more ivory but when I got it on it definitely looked white, not stark white, but a nice soft white.

MAGGIE SOTTERO HAS WHITE AND WHAT THEY CALL DIAMOND WHITE(IT IS! IVORY!)

The diamond white looks pure white to me until I see it next to a pure white dress…then it just makes the pure white dress look blue to me! I put my dress (diamond white) next to an ivory dress and that helped me to see the difference, too. I think diamond white is so flattering.

I have always been a fan of diamond white over a complete white because complete white can almost look cheap up close and make you look flourescent. Diamond white has a bit more yellow in it and is a popular color people choose because it looks more natural.

My maggie “Poppy” is in diamond white and it’s in between white and ivory. It was more natural looking than the white maggie dresses that I tried on. In pictures, the diamond white actually look very white! My photographer friends have suggested that I should get a dress that is off white as it will look better on pictures. 🙂
