Maggy London Draped Sweetheart Chiffon Dress
Perfect Little White Dress
I bought this dress for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding and I think it's perfect! It's very true to size (the Maggy London measurements are 100% accurate), which for me meant it was much too big in the bust, but perfect through the waist and hips. I plan to just get the top brought in closer to the date. It's a comfortable, soft fabric, was the perfect hem for me (just above the knees, I'm 5'8" and got a size 12). It flows nicely, has a great shape, and is a great blend of casual but dressy. Also, I ordered it on Wednesday afternoon, and received it on Friday afternoon (with free shipping!). Highly recommended!
I loved this dress to wear to my rehearsal dinner for a May wedding. I originally ordered a 10 and although it fit, I could not it zippered. So I sent the 10 back and ordered a 12. Well the 12 was huge on me and again, I could not get it zippered. The zipper seems cheap and flimsy and can not get through all the ruching of the top. With plenty of room to spare in the dress the zipper ended up splitting right down the middle and I got stuck in the dress. This dress will be going back, it is beautiful in person, but I can not risk having my dress split open in the church, plus for the price the zipper should go up and down at my will.
A Great Dress For Someone Else
I was looking for a simple, white, short dress, and this meets all those criteria. However, the dress is proportioned for someone MUCH taller. The bottom half of this dress is as elegant as pictured, lays really nice, but hit far below the knee (i'm 5'2").
The bust of this dress is what I think lacks the most. It is really uninteresting, and while it holds your shape as its well made, its a little bulky for someone with my frame. The heart shape is nice, but hid my bosom instead of accenting it. I really wanted this dress to be "the one" but in the end, it just didn't feel very special. The material and construction are really nice though.
I ordered this dress with the intention of wearing it out on the town following my wedding reception. I really love the rouched top, however the bottom is a bit too flowy and drapy for me. I'd love to try it on in a smaller size in case that would help, however they are sold out. I will likely return with the hope of finding something better.
