My Maggie is Diamond White.  The first time I had the sample on, it looked VERY white to me.  Then they held a WHITE white dress up to the one I had on, and that’s when you can really tell a difference.  Mine was suddenly not nearly as white!

Trust me, you don’t want a dress that’s completely white.  Diamond white is better because it’s off white and looks more natural.  A complete white dres looks almost florescent and can almost glow in the dark.  You don’t want to glow in the dark, do you?

Well, diamond white is definitely not ivory.  That sales lady misinformed you.  But do not worry that it’s stark white, because it’s not.  It’s a litte off-white, but not as yellow as ivroy, like pps said.  You should go back and ask for a swatch for the color.  Find a Maggie dress that is ivory and compare. 

My dress color is diamond white and it’s definitely not ivory or pure white or I’d know. (Somehow I am very sensitive to the differences of the 3 shades.)

if you really like ivory, why not show the sales lady a piece of ivory fabric and ask them to make the dress with the color?

here is my ivory to show you

Maggie dresses also come in ivory… so diamond white is not MS’s name for ivory. Have you checked a swatch yet?

I got an ivory dress, but tried on a diamond white dress and it looked really nice…Some ivory’s can tend to be more “yellowy”….and diamond white doesn’t have that…its a rich white, if that even makes sense!  It’s a beautiful white, but they should be able to show you a swatch, or at least a different dress in that colour 🙂

I have a maggie sottero dress and it is in diamond white.   It is not stark white.  It’s not ivory either… but it does lean towards the ivory side.  I actually noticed this when I was trying to find shoes.  In the picture below, I compared my dress to white shoes and to ivory shoes.  I picked the ivory pair. 

Hope this helps.
