I need help finding bridal salons in MD and NY that have LOTS of Maggie Sottero in sample sizes 18 and up. I am a 14/16 and I’ve tried on a few Maggies and bc of my hips I need at least an 18 to try on.
I am relying on personal experiences as I am tired of calling salons, being told they have LOTS, getting there and having other designers shoved in my face. 2-3 does not equal LOTS and I know what I want. I am specifically in love with Maggie Sottero and Sottero & Midgley dresses.
Please, please, help me…

Gosh I have no idea! I am a size 16 or 18 in Maggie dresses and I went to a Maggie Trunk Show, she tried to put on as many as she could for me of the sample size! Most worked except the Dropped Waist Dresses!
I’d just call and ask all the Maggie Suppliers until you can find it! Thats what I did! lol! Go on the Maggie website, put your in your zipcode and start calling girly!
BEST OF LUCK!!! =]

Thanks! I think the people at Maggie HQ know my voice by now…lol.
I’ve tried on two Maggies in my size but I’m tired of squeezing into samples. I went to a trunk show last month. All of the samples were size 6 despite the fact that the salon assured me sizes would vary. I was punked.

I could squeeze myself into a corset 12 and it was fine…you get the look of it. And I am also a 16. But call around and ask…or just go to a HUGE upscale store, they will have some.

Have you tried Curvaceous Couture in Columbia MD? I don’t know which exact designers they carry but I know they carry sample sizes 16 and up.

@ DanielleZara: it depends on the cut of the dress. I am hippy and I like the slim a-line gowns so I need larger sizes even with the corset. I’ve done the squeezing and it hurts. I didn’t enjoy feeling light headed while having a dress on. lol
@enoh102: OOOHH!!!! I think I will visit them even though they do not carry Maggie Sottero dresses. I like the idea of that store!
Thanks for the helpful responses!

I have the same problem as you. I wear a 16/18- I have squeezed into size 12 dresses but I shouldn’t have to!! I live in New Jersey and I love Maggie Sottero dresses also. I am having a hard time finding ones in plus size to try on. I went to Lestan Bridal in Brooklyn NY and I tried on like 5 dresses plus size (I think one of them was a Maggie Sottero dress) but I want more!!
