they are high quality, they are gorgeous, they are slimming, and they don’t cost too much. Here’s mine, which I loved once I lost enough weight to fit into it (the store had ordered it too small for me initially)

i didn’t read all the responses, but when i first saw the title of this thread, my first thoguht was “because they are gorgeous”! also, as PPs have said they are good quality and good prices. i have Jenna and she cost $1160. not bad considering my budget was $1000, i went for it because i loved the maggie dresses WAY more the Davids bridals dresses i tried on. also, one thing i find about maggie dresses is that they are not too “out there”. not sure if that makes sense, but a lot of the high end designers (with high end prices) i find make alot of dresses that i would never wear because they are too far out of my “am i bold enough to wear this” zone.

I love Maggie’s dresses. After being on here and seeing so many pictures of real brides in them, I think they look so flattering on many different body types. The look good in pictures, as well as in person and I find them to be affordable.

Oh I agree w the poster that said its great on plus size women.
My dress is a size 16, but I look A LOT smaller in it.
It really is flattering on all body types.

Thank you for your responses ladies, I am helping a friend deciding whether it’s worth it to drive 25 miles from my little town to try on some Maggie dresses.
But from the glowing reviews… I might as well start filling up the car up now… 🙂

They’re popular because:
– Corset back makes girls look 1-2 sizes smaller, defines the waist and is flattering on most everyone.
– Good marketing. Dresses look great in their ads.
Don’t shoot me for saying this but I’m not crazy about their quality. I wore one for one my first wedding ten years ago. I loved it then but when my mom saw it she scoffed at saying “this is polyester”. Maybe I became more picky in the ten years but some of the ones with beading screamed mass-made in China to me this time around. This is just my personal preference though, there are a lot of Bees that wear them and look stunning.

I think it’s a combination of good quality at a reasonable price range for most brides, combined with some pretty good marketing.

Maggie Sottero has such a large collection of dresses, more than any other label I’ve seen so it’s probably easier for most brides to find what they want.
A lot of UK bridal shops stock them.

The corset back really molds the dress to your body and doesn’t ‘stretch’ out….this is really important if you choose a strapless gown…the fit will be so great you will never have to pull the top up–because it won’t slip down.

Not all of Maggie’s dresses have corset backs. Mine was a button-down back. Anyone else have a non-corset back?

@amariem25: Mine has a corset on the inside, but the outside is a button down back. It’s gorgeous!
And I agree with the above posters. They are excellent quality and inexpensive compared to many other bridal gowns.

My dress isn’t a Maggie, but I tried on several. I personally think they are very flattering. And pretty affordable.

@meliss: I have to agree. I think they are at a great price point and do look flattering because of the corset top. However, the quality really leaves something to be desires I think. I tried on a maggie after trying on Enzoani, Pronovias and Lazaro gowns and I couldn’t wait to get it off. It just felt itchy.
