Hello all! I have been dress shopping for what feels like forever and I finally think I found the one – It’s the Maggie Sottero Nora. I need some help and haven’t found an answer on the boards.
The shop I found it at was pricing it at a little over $1500 — is there anyone out there (in Chicagoland preferably) that has found it for less than that? I have been trying to search around online and it seems even by purchasing it online it’s around $1489.
I’d appreciate your insight! 🙂 Thanks in advance!

I’m from the UK and here the dresses are usually a little more expensive than the US and it was £1200.
Have you tried the dress on? Do you have pics? I tried it on and it was gorgeous. It looks a little different in person than it does in the pics but I think all dresses do.

@wedding_2011: Yes, I tried on the dress. I loved it!! This wasn’t even the style of what I was originally looking for, but then I tried on the private label by g #1287 and loved it. Have you seen that one? The only reason I didn’t purchase that dress on the spot was the waist was dropped and it gave the illusion of ‘love handles.’ I have an athletic build because I’m a runner (not running so much in this winter weather though haha!) and I just kept focusing on my hips. The consultant kept telling me it was “curves” but I knew on my wedding day that is all I would see too. She also tried telling me that it wouldn’t look that way in a new gown because the one I was trying on had stretched, but I thought if it had stretched it actually should not grip me at all.
Here is a pic in the Maggie Sottera Nora:
