I’m a girl from Sweden that is really into Maggie dresses, especially the lace gowns. The price for a Maggie in Sweden is almost twice as much as in the US and since I’m quite experienced in buying stuff online (my engagement ring is American e.g.) I was soo set on getting my Maggie from Jays Bridal or Bestbridalprices. I can’t justify myself in buying an over prized gown here and I don’t like the reputation of the Maggie retailer in my area.
To my surprise and shock I’m not allowed to buy a Maggie online from US so now I don’t know what to do. One possibility is to find a preowned dress from someone willing to ship abroad or start looking at other brands that sell online.
So what I’m asking for is tips of similar brands that share the same quality in the same price range or lower (<1500$). I’ve always heard so good stuff about Maggies corsets (true?) and is especially interested to know about boning and so on in the brands you recommend. I have mostly found lace dresses with buttons which I don’t prefer but might have to stick with and I wonder if the support from these dresses are similar to a lace up? Brands I’ve come across that sell to Sweden (after a quick look) are Casablanca, Alfred Angelo, Da Vinci, and Forever Yours so I wonder if you have any comments on the quality of these brands.
So far I know I can’t buy Maggie, Allure, La Sposa, Pronovias, Enzoani and probably a lot others
Big thanks in advance!
