chelbell23 :  Very pretty! I also am getting married in a month and a half and have a Maggie Sotterro that has some of the same design elements as yours and they look so different on then on the model. I hated my dress on the model and didn’t even want to try it on.

darlinglilred :  thank you! I know, I stalked the MS website for a month before any of my bridal appointments and I did not like this dress at all, but after seeing it in person I knew I had to try it on.

wineosaur :  it’s just stunning on you. The pattern is so striking and the lines of the dress are so elegant

chelbell23 :  another case of the dress looking better on the real bride than the model. You fill out the bodice just beautifully. Heads will turn on your wedding day

Just posted my dress in another thread and happened to look up the original webpage. Thought whoa! that dress doesn’t look as good on the model as I think it does on me! haha. She’s beautiful, but I think too tall/thin for it? And I’m wearing it with a petticoat, which I think is making a difference too. 

I think when I bought it a while ago they had the dress just on a manequin? And remembered this thread and figured I’d post!

Anyway, I bought it because I knew I wanted an A-line, with straps, not beaded, and not totally white. I love that the lace isn’t too delicate, and I love the contrast with the nude underneath. The dress has a great weight to it, and I think it will be perfect for our spring barn wedding!

This is an amazing thread!  Everyone looks so beautiful! I went with the Maggie Sottero Divina in ivory, I think mine was a size 22 so a bit different than the model! πŸ™‚   I loved my dress!  Even though it was a bit much to drag around on the beach, I thought it was perfect!

What a great thread!

soonzak :  you look amazing! The dress doesn’t even look very ‘wedding like’ on the model, but with the petticoat and your curves it comes to life! I really love the belt as well!

My dress also looks different on me compared to model pictures I think, because of the colour (mine is ivory) and my curves.

This is one of the only model photos I could find. The dress was from 2014, though I just bought it last year at a consignment shop.

Its the only dress of 25-30 that I liked on me AT ALL, and it was a lot of things I SWORE I didn’t want, so happy to be wrong!
