Oh my God it looks amazing! I am so in love with this dress but sadly have not been able to find anywhere to try it on in New York 🙁
Gorgeous–and you look so happy. 🙂
I’ve always LOVED this dress! 🙂 Congratulations!
Ooh, that kinda scares me now. I have similar measurements to you (33/25/36) and was told to order a 4. Yes, it’s from a bridal salon, and they measured me right there. They actually said my chest/waist measurement was closer to a 2, but that my hips needed at least a 4 (haha, I have a big butt!). Hopefully the dress won’t be catastrophically small in that area!
I guess the good news is that I want them to be able to cinch the corset really tightly (so I feel super snug, almost to the point of not breathing), but to still have a lot of space showing in the back. I know it sounds weird, but I feel so cozy and safe in a crazy tight corset! Hopefully there will be enough seam allowance to let out the hips if necessary (the salon assured me it would be at least an inch on each side). I think the bodice should be fine. The dress arrives in October, so wish me luck!
I also had a really hard time finding this dress to try on, since it’s so old. I e-mailed every bridal salon listed on the Maggie site within 100 miles of DC, and only found 3 that had a sample. The closest place (where I bought it) is still an hour away.
On the maggie sottero size chart, a 6 is 34.5, 26.5, 37. So I fell almost exactly in that area. A 4 is 33.5, 25.5, 36, so you’re almost exact as well! No worries, it will fit you perfectly 🙂
And I ordered a Maggie for the same reason, I love corsets, they make me feel secure and sexy!
It looks great on you and DOESN’T look old at all. I love it! I wish I could pull something like that off.
You look so stunning!!! Love that last pic of you showing off the blue shoe! I’m also wearing blue satin shoes with rhinestones. I <3 them!
i tried on about 30 dresses and I fell in love with this one the most. If for some reason I don’t have a crying moment with a dress, I will most likely go with this one! I love it! It looks great on you!
