    I am a plus size bride, HATE clothes shopping, so of course wedding dress shopping is a nightmare!  But.... I LOVE this dress and can not get it out of my mind.  Has anyone seen this dress on a plus size person?  Normally I wear a 18/20 in regular clothes.  I'm hoping that the waist area will be slimming.  Thanks for any help!

      The dress is beautiful and I'm sure it will look just as beautiful on you as it does on the model in the picture. If its what you think you want, definitely go and try it on - if you love it on, then get it! Don't worry about what others think!


      Good luck!

        thats a beautiful dress. Try to find it and try it on. I had a dress I loved, but when I tried it on, it was not everything I hoped it would be.  I did get a similiar dress but fancier.


        Just be prepared when you go try it on, that the sample size probably will be very very small. I have a good sense of humor so when I tried to wiggle my way into sample size 6 all I could do was laugh as I got stuck, tried to pull down the layers of material. (I am street size 16).


        Good luck!

          Thank you both!  And your right you do have to have a sense of humor because they sure don't have many plus size samples!  I'm going to check around at some bridal shops close by and see if I can find it.  Thanks alot for the boost!

                  I tried this dress on.  I'm a 10/12 street size.  There's a band around the middle, inside the dress that creates the shape.  I really liked how it fit but ultimately went with a different dress.  This was definitely my second pick though.

                    Ladies.. i am also a plus size bride (size 16/18 but with hourglass figure) and i would highly recommend the Maggie Sottero line.. i swear i was about to give up before coming upon maggie dresses.. it seems every one i tried on looked great. They have clever ruching in the midsection that is very forgiving and makes you look so slim.. plus they come in up to size 28 and they are modern and elegant, and not frumpy ugly like you'd expect from a plus size gown.

                    I'm officially a maggie bride, and got the call last week that my dress is in! I go in a few weeks for my first fitting.

                    I got the Rhonda style dress.


                    Go check them out!!!

                    The dress looks beautiful! It's very hard to imagine yourself in it, until you see it on. I was certain I wanted a specific style....kept trying them on and they didn't look right. Then I tried the complete opposite on and loved it! Good luck with finding the dress, and remember to have fun with it :)
