I have completley fallen in
LOVE with Maggie Sottero’s Kendra!
But I’m having two problems with ordering it at the moment..
1. Noone in my state (live in Australia) stocks it, or is getting it as a sample, so I’m not able to try it on, and 2. I am getting married in Fiji in a chapel on the beach, with photos and reception on the beach aswell.
i’ve read that Kendra is really flattering on plus size girls like myself, I’m around a size 18 atm, so I’m just wondering do you think I will be able to pull off the dress and is it too much for a destination wedding?
Photos of the chapel are here: http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ3dA4D7d7hznefMHs9XzjKfpO28bl8-xtZ_M4JRl5GhH6Quu6f, http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQzG6V2eIt9dlTgl5Lm-FabD4qvtAd1TYIhEBDFgOPDf0PHaisJy54iaEwN
I’m just worried that this is the only time that I’m ever going to be able to wear a big puffy dress and if I go for a simpler dress I may regret it?
I’ve attached two photos of me.. these are probably the only full bodied shots i have of me atm. I know its hard to tell if it would suit my body shape from photos, as thats the trouble I’m having atm espeically with being a jeans chic!
Any advice is welcomed!

I think the dress would look great on you. It’s a corset and is very flattering. When the sales ladies measured me, I was between a 14 and 16. My mom, who is really picked, loved how the dress made my body looked.
There are a few dresses by Maggie Sottero that are similar. You could try them on to get an idea of how it would look on you =)! Goodluck!

I really like that dress, too. You sure are right about it being flattering. I am a plus size and I’m looking at similar styles.

Kendra is also my dream dress and I am getting married in Domincan Republic. I really like the juxtaposition of a fancy dress on the beach. I think it just looks amazing. The dress will be hot for sure but I think its worth it! If you love it I say go for it.

i think it would look good on you. but i personally would never buy something without trying it on first, especially something as important as my wedding dress. but if you are comfortable with that, then go for it!
as for the fancy-ness for a beach wedding – absolutely fine! i am getting married on the beach too and i have maggie sottero Jenna. when i was shopping for a dress, i was always stressed that it was “too much” for the beach. finally a dress consultant told me to stop worrying about it because the contrast of fancy on beach is amazing and so basically you can wear whatever you want. after i only concerned myself with the weight of the dress, i didn’t want to be too hot and heavy on the beach!
