I found a dress I love in the picture but have not been able to try it on. I found the dress about 3 hours away from me and am trying to decide if I should make the drive to try it. How do you think it would look on a size 14-16, large busted (DDD). Do you think it would accentuate my hips to much with the silhoute cut? Does anyone have pictures of themselves in the dress?
Also, the dress I found is several sizes too large. The girl said someone that was a 16 tried it on and it would need to me taken up and inch and a half on both sides to fit. Is that possible to do?

What a beautiful dress I dont know why It wouldnt work. From my experience with going to try on dresses with my girls that Maggie tends to fit wonderfully on fully figures and keeps the girls in! (my dress is a sottero Midgley and I looove how it fits)
You do also have to keep in mind that you may loove the dress online, but it might just not be the one for you (not because it wouldn’t fit you properly) I had so many ideas of the dress I wanted after finding it online and completly did a 180 and went for something soooo different.
Dont have your mind set on that dress just yet – but give it a try? why not? 3 hours isnt THAT far away ha ha you may find something else there that you love as well!

As a plus-sized Maggie Bride, I’d say this one *may* not work for you. It depends on your hip to bust ratio, mostly. I’m fairly even on the top on bottom, and anything with ruching across the hips (as opposed to JUST on the waist) added a lot of bulk to my hips. I found that a-line gowns that were smooth from the waist over the hips worked a lot better. If you like the pick ups, the Krystalyn Marie, Roma, or Aurelie might fit the bill.
That being said, if you feel larger on top, the extra fabric might help you to even out your proportions, giving you an hourglass shape.
Hope that’s helpful! Have fun picking your dress out!

I agree with Piaffette. Also, as I was trying on Maggie dresses, and as a bride on the heavier side, I found that the dresses with pick-ups made me look a lot bigger. My only suggestion is to try i on before you buy it and see how you feel! 🙂

Maggie is a great brand for anysize, but especially for those with curves because of the corset backing. That being said – you need to try it on. With some serious "girls" to support, that is something you need to FEEL whether or not you are ok with. Pick ups might rock or might add weight – it depends. But strapless and needing support? You NEED to try it on for yourself.
