Maggie Sottero Sizing - really true to fit?
Posted 21 November 2009 - 03:28 AM
I am still pretty new to the forum and tried searching 'true to fit maggie sottero' but nothing came up so I am hoping that this question wasn't asked already...
I went in to try on Wedding Dresses today and almost cried when she the sales lady) told me I would need a size 12 or 14 when normally I wear a size 8.
Not sure what brands I was trying on, but I really have my eye on the Maggie Sottero Destination dress style AD3300 and wanted to know how Maggie dresses fit.
Reason I am asking is that the closest place that sells the destination collection is 5 hours away but the bridal shop in town that carries the couture collection would be able to order it in for me. So, i was hoping to just figure out my size and then order it.
I am so scared of ordering something and thinking it may not look right or fit right.
I am also hoping that since it has a corset back that it will give a little bit more room to play with.
Soo question...Maggie Sottero - True to Fit?
Suggestions and/or comments greatly appreciated!

Isn't it funny-- even though it's just a number, it can still bother you!!
And personally--- I would probably just drive the 5 hours to get an idea on fit, then order it from the shop near you-- just to be safe and lessen potential alterations. That's just me though- I had to drive 2 hours to purchase, fit, alter my dress! Bring a friend with you, make a mini road trip of it! Then you won't be so stressed w/ anticipation...

Those size estimates seem a bit bit but the nice thing about the dress you've picked is that it laces up. It's pretty forgiving if you're off a size. That being said I would make sure when you order you are measured by a bridal consultant to ensure the best fit.

my usual size is 5/7. So I agree that you should go just to make sure.
