BAB reader Linda has a Maggie Sottero Couture dress to unload for a mere $300. She bought it “gently worn” for $800, but ended up going with another option on her big day. This beaded strapless gown is missing a few beads, and the measurements are 34″-28″-OPEN. It also has a 41″ train. It has never been altered or worn by Linda. If you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will forward your email to the proper authorities! (If you’re looking to sell your wedding dress, btw, we recommend using a site like PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com.)
