      That is great news! I think you are making the right choice by going to try it on. This is one area you don't want to guess on and be wrong.

      I, too, had to order up from my regular size. It's pretty common with wedding dresses.

      Good luck!

        It has already been said, but most all wedding dresses run a couple sizes smaller than street clothes. Maggies are no different. I am a street size 14, but all the dresses I tried on were a 16/18. My Maggie is a size 18 w/ a corset, and fits perfectly. I just have to have the sides of the bust taken in a bit, and the hem taken up.

          I just bought a maggie sottero gown. I wear a size 6/8 in express clothing, abercrombie etc. And i usually wear smalls in shirts. I had to order a size 10 maggie. Maggie dresses definitely have their dresses sized differently than street sizes. AT least that is my experience. The great thing about maggie dresses is most of them have corset backs which can forgive a size up or down. Good luck. I would personally probably drive too or have someone take your measurements and then have the maggie store match up your sizes. That could definitely work too. Again good luck!
