I just placed my order yesterday for my Maggie Sottero gown...I am 5'4 and my measurements are 33, 26, 37. I ordered size 4 and I'm a bit nervous of how it would fit. (The top is corset)...Any input on Maggie's sizing chart and how true it is to fit would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, very few women match up perfectly with the measurements on dress sizing charts. If it helps, however, here is part of a Maggie size chart that I found online:
Gown Size Chart (post 2005 gowns)
Size 0 2 4 6 8 10 12
Bust 31.5 32.5 33.5 34.5 36 37.5 39
Waist 23.5 24.5 25.5 26.5 28 29.5 31
Hips 34 35 36 37 38.5 40 41.5
It looks like you line up pretty well with a size four, with the corset back I'm willing to bet that you won't have much of a problem with fit, but most women get alterations here and there!
Did you have someone who works at the bridal shop measure you and place your size for you? If so, there's even less to fret about.
( = I know how you feel, though. I placed the order for my dress a couple of months ago (also a maggie!!) and it should be coming in soon. I tried on a size 12 and they measured me out to be a size zero, so I have no idea about how the fit will turn out.
I'm sure that both of us will end up with beautifully fitting dresses!
Come to think of it, however, I'm not sure how correct that online chart is. I remember the woman in the store saying that my hips were smaller than the zero, and my bust would fit perfectly - and I'm definately not smaller than 34 in the hips! - I'm also pretty sure that by bust is ~33. Where's a tape measure when you need one?
