I ordered this dress months ago, I was 50+lbs heavier then but I knew I wanted to lose weight so I ordered it sizes down. Now it’s quite large on me and I don’t know if I want to have it taken in or look for another dress. I’d just like some opinions on what people think of this dress?!

I saw that dress when I ordered my maggie sottero and I really don’t like it’s very generic and a lot of people have it. As far as the sizing you can get it down like 3 sizes or so if it’s corset

Its not my style. I think the pickups are dated – even though a lot of people like them.
the real question is what do YOU think of the dress? What is it about this dress that makes you question it??

Ofcourse, this is a Monalisa Maggie Sottero imitation which looks like the exact same dress. (I know you guys hate knock offs haha)

@IUrebekah3RT: Same. I don’t like pickups or bubble hems, and the beading on the bodice that makes it look like a corset with the plainer skirt look always throws me off.

Like the other bees, this is not particularly my style of dress. Having said that, you obviously purchased it for a reason! I do think it is uber traditional. I purchased an A-line dress but I don’t think it is traditional, as it is not too poofy like a ballgown with pickups. Corset dresses are very flattering up top though, so that is a positive. If you are struggling you should to a pro and con list of getting a new dress vs. keeping this one.

I don’t like it personally, but to each their own 🙂

I like the bodice but don’t like the bottom.

@IUrebekah3RT: Same here.
What is important is for you to figure out how to feel in that dress.

It’s very busy on bottom, but the bodice is pretty!

Style-wise, it’s not my cup of tea. Like others have also mentioned, I’m not fond of pick-ups or bubble hems.
But personal preference aside – I guess you have to weigh up how much you love this dress, and how much it would cost to get it altered? Also, would it ruin the lines of the dress if you had it substantially reduced in size. All in all, it may just be easier to get a new dress and maybe sell this one.
Does your bridal salon or where you bought it from allow an exchange?

I am in the minority that strongly opposes ruffles or “loose fabric” because I am a firm believer that ruffles do not flatter anyone or anything. The “pinned fabric” reminds me of old throw pillows or tapestry curtains.
The dress just isn’t my thing.

@vorpalette: +1. However, OP if you love it, get it!

Agree! Bodice is beautiful. But if you’re still swimming in it, I say take your luck and run with it! Shop again!!
