Hi ladies, over the last few weeks I have been browsing the forums and without realising it, saved Maggies Isadora Marie 5 times in my ‘pretty dress’ folder haha! I am currently a size 22 but lost 7kgs already and hope to be a 16 by the wedding. Have any plus size birdes wore this/tried it on? Would love to see pics if you have! Thanks!

I am in LOVE with Maggie Sottero. I’m a size 16 and I’m actually going dress shopping this afternoon! I plan on trying on Isadora Marie, so I’ll post some pics for you tonight.

I am a size 16 as well and Maggie dresses are great for us girls who wear bigger sizes. IMO.
I have tried on Isadora Ann wich is the shorter version of the Marie and the Isadora but I don’t have any pics. They do wonders for the figure. I bet you are going to love it!
I ended up with the Primavera.
Have fun dress shopping and post pics please!

Maggies tend to work REALLY well on all body types, and look particularly stunning on curves. I don’t have a Maggie (though I loooooved them) but my dress is similar to the way she cuts hers.
Try it on and enjoy it! 🙂

Wow, what glowing reviews! Nowhere in NZ has a sample of the Isadora Marie but have the Isadora and and the Isadora, I might try both of hose on to get an idea, or fly to Aussie if financies allow. Can’t wait to see the pictures Ashley Lynn, have fun today! 🙂

Just keep an open mind, Astra might have some other options in similar silhouette (natural waist ballgown) that will give you an idea if you like it…I looked at Isadora in Wellington, I flew there from Chch just to try it on and was SURE I was going to buy it (I was obsessed!!!) then I tried it on and while the dress was AMAZING it was seriously heavy and would be too hot for our summer wedding and didnt suit me at all …but I ended up finding my dress while I was there anyways – another Maggie – that I absolutely love…I was yelling out ‘this is the one’ before I even got out of the dressing room!! So Im sure you will find something you love and Ozzie is only a quick plane ride away if you need more selection 🙂

I am a size 14. Isadora Marie was my DREAM gown! I tried it on….it looked terrible on me. 🙁 I wish I had taken pictures, but I didn’t because I couldn’t wait to get it off! It made me look way bigger than I actually am. I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I encourage you to try it on, though. I’m very short so that might have been part of the reason it looked so awful on me.

@Jennifer – that’s a good point, the weather could be very hot on our date, depends on the changeable weather I think! Glad to hear you found your dream gown anyway!
@The LionKing – This is what I’m worried about for me, which is a shame cause FH loves dresses like it! Will have to wait and see I guess 🙂

Here is the Isadora Marie that I tried on. It’s really pretty, I just felt it cut me off in an odd place.

Thanks for the picture Vintage Vegas, looks beautiful on you! AshleyLynn87 did you end up trying it on?

I love this dress, but after reading that there is nowhere in NZ to try it on, I am dissapointed. I am a plus size lady and have tried on other dresses similar and was surprised that they looked better than I had thought. I think that the dress looks stunning on vegasvintage and am grateful for the picture as an indicator of what it may look like on me.

Ladys there is hope! Try the Isadora! It is just called Maggie Sottero Isadora (no maire or ann on the end)
I am a size 20 in Maggie dresses and I have noticed that the drop waist makes bigger women look a lot smaller! If you have not found your dress yet at least try on a drop waist!
You will look multiple sizes smaller! Promise!
