    Sebita: i agree with everyone else- the front looks good. Try to get them to at the very least reimburse you for alterations and take it somewhere else to get the back fixed.

      Thanks adcarter41. I think I'm gonna try them and see how it goes. I'm using it for my ttd so it doesn't have to be perfect I just wanted it to look like the same dress. I'll keep everyone update on how it works out.

        I sent this dress to Monica Bridal via DHgate tonight and I am so impressed with the prompt reply!  I got an email via DHgate (by setting up an acct and sending the message through there) immediately during their business hours.  Then I was on tonight and spoke to them via chat and I can't wait to order the dress! 

        The pic I provided is a Davids Bridal Dress, which I suspect was actually "inspired by" the 2nd pic which is a current Maggie Sottero style.

        The Maggie version is more "elegant" I think with the detail at the waist, whereas the David's version looks a little more casual and tropical to me, so I chose that one for my sample to provide Monicas Bridal. 

         

        She said she is adding it to her store so I imagine I should beable to order soon, she quoted me 120 including shipping...can't wait to order it!

            Ok, so I showed the dress I am planning on ordering in the post above.  I originally was going to chose this one from Landys Bridal (another Maggie from 2009) but I worry about the waist line being too high.  I am a full figured girl and really need to definition at the waist.  I've tried that actual Davids Bridal dress on (post above) and it looked nice.  I'm worried the Maggie in this post is too high of a waist...empire waists with a flowy bottom make me look pregnant.

            Oddly I actually have a dress already that I got from a friend.  I really like the dress BUT it is too small   I am in the process of losing weight and it MIGHT fit or could be altered to fit but I think I'll pay an arm and a leg to take the dress out.  Also, thought I really like the dress a ton, it doesn't see "beachy" to me.  I will keep it as a back up just incase my "overseas knock off" dress isn't up to par.  Anybody know how difficult it is to let a dress out or add gussets...we are probably talking 2 dress sizes too small in the ribcage/back/bust area   Waist isn't too bad, maybe a size or a 1/2 size...would guess I would lose enough weight for the waist.

              I am so bummed. I got the dress today and is it not what I expected. The back side is really awkward. The seam is not at the center, but rather skewed to the right side. It makes the back look so bad. The skirt is not sewn in, but rather attached as if it were still not finished. There are some minor stains, but that is not important because you can't notice it. The only way I can wear that dress down the isle is with a veil and I was not even considering it. I was so excited about the dress and now I am so sad to have to start dress-shopping again...

                      thank you! I will ask for extra support to be built in.  I hadn't really thought about that as I just assumed I would wear bridal type undergarnments like a long line bra or something that would add its own support.

                       

                       

                      LADIES: because of the heat with a tropical destination wedding, did you guys NOT wear a long line bra or slip or anything under your dress?

                       

                      thanks!!
