I think that they’re so popular because they’re very well designed and of good quality, but also within a reasonable price range for most brides… most of the dresses I’ve seen from Maggie are less than 2000.

I have to agree with MsFoxxy, they’re beautiful dresses but also affordable. I wore Maggie’s Harlow dress, a lace dress from most designers would have been much more expensive and I probably wouldn’t have been able to afford it.

I wore a Maggie dress, too. I fell in love with other designers while browsing pictures, but once I tried on the Maggie, it was a done deal. Bottom line: There’s something about the cut of Maggie dresses that makes an “average” or even “full” figure look amazing. In particular, Maggie dresses look awesome on girls with curves, and her corsets help create even nicer curves. Plus, I paid only $600 for a pure silk dress. 🙂

I always wondered the same thing Evergreen…and I only heard of them through weddingbee as well and I’m in the US…though my wondering comes from just not liking the style of almost every dress I’ve seen my that designer…just my personal opinion…I know lots of brides love the designs…just not my person thing lol.

MsFoxxy said it perfectly, it’s reasonably priced and good  quality.

When I first started shopping for dresses, I had no clue about designers or labels.

All I knew was what style I wanted and which ones looked flattering on me.

I noticed I kept leaning towards Maggie designs. I am so happy with my dress, its $700 but looks a lot more expensive.

I agree with other posters, it’s probably because of the designs and the cost. They keep up to date on the current trends and they’re decently priced. Allure is a similar brand that I liked a little better then any Maggie’s I tried on.

@EvergreenSelena: I’m British myself and I came across them from seeing them on bridal shop websites. I tried on a couple of Maggie dresses but i’d already tried on my dress by my favourite designer.

I agree with previous poster’s. The gowns look gorgeous and expensive without actually paying the price. Everyone that went to my wedding thought my maggie was an antique and that it cost over $5K when I bought it used for $400. They’re flattering for all body types and have a corset back so you don’t have to worry so much about losing/ gaining weight…always a plus!

i have to agree with the others. Maggie Sottero dresses give u the most for your money. I shopped everywhere and had a hard time finding a dress that had the WOW factor but was inexpensive. Mine was $1500. The Maggie Sottero dresses are also figure flattering. Dress 1: is the style I was looking for but  it seem to highlight my tummy (not something I want to show off). Dress 2: is a Maggie Sottero Leighton which has a corset and I just loved the way my body looks.

Honestly I just think that Maggie’s biggest appeal is that it looks freaking amazing on every single body I have seen it on. I find that maggie dresses look good on all body types! I loved my Maggie dress!

I ordered a Maggie dress for my wedding this summer and am super exited for it to arrive. As everyone else is saying, there is something about the quality of the material and the design of the dress that makes it very flattering and it looks more expensive than it actually is. I had tried on a whole bunch of dresses at various stores, but the second I tried on my Maggie dress I felt overwhelmingly emotional (in a good way of course!). It was the only dress that made me feel that way.

@X0X0X0:  Oh, wow, that second one looks stunning on you.

I didn’t choose a Maggie dress but I did try some on and check out their collection online and I think another thing in addition to being well made for the price and very figure flattering is that they have a huge selection of styles and are pretty widely carried in the US.  Although since each bridal shop may only carry a few and nothing that interests you, there’s a LOT of different types in their collection at any given time.

I haven’t got to try one on yet (March 21st is my first designer dress shopping appt and I’m dying of excitement!!!). But, I’ve heard from other bees that Maggie’s dresses tend to be very slimming. I’ve also heard that she carries a great plus size line that slims bellies. And like PPs- she is pretty inexpensive for the design and quality you are getting, especially in comparison to other gowns (pronovias, vera, etc). 

Her dresses are simply beautiful!
