I have been looking at the Sottero and Midgley dresses (along with Maggie), and there is one style that I am very interested in.. I have e-mailed over 7 different shops to see if anyone has a sample available to try on and no luck! Very frustrating! You look through their catalogue and they never have the dress you want..
I am not the type to buy without trying it on.. Since things always look different on me than on the model.. I am willing to travel too since there is only one authorized retailer in the Vancouver area and the rest are far away! (and I’ve already been there)..
Has anyone tried on this dress? Can anyone post pictures of real brides in it?

My dress is not S&M, but very similar. I bought her at Lisa’s Bridal in New Westminster. Hope this helps!

@metalbride: Ooh that’s a gorgeous dress! What is it called? A specific designer do you remember? I went to the Bridal Gallery for my first appointment but it was just trying on random dresses.. I think I will probably go back again.

I don’t knowt he designer/style. Lisa’s takes out the labels on their samples, so you can’t see the designer name. I’m not hung up on branding, so I never bothered to ask. I’m sure I could call the shop and find out though.
I was really not impressed with the Bridal Gallery. Since going, I’ve talked to several other brides who were dissapointed as well. I would highly recommend Lisa’s though if you haven’t been there already.
It’s really too bad the BG is the only place that carries Maggie, because there were some beautiful dresses, but I couldn’t justify spending money in a store I had such awful customer service from.
Hope if you go back there, you have a better experience!

I think my dress is quite similar to this one, mine is Havana by Maggie. It has beading around the top and ruching at the waist with some beaded detail. The backs of both dresses are corset closures and I really love my dress!! http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=J1421

I tried this dress on and LOVED it. It’s so flattering. It pulls you in and gives a really nice shape and skims over any less than perfect spots like they don’t even exist. Definitely try it on. You won’t regret it.
