    Tara Keely tk2902 - $292.50 : Designer Wedding Dresses,Wedding Dress Shops, by EndenBridal

    This is the link to one of the Tara Keely dresses I used in my request. I wanted the fabric of this dress and color. Wanted the shape of TK2854 which is close. And the back of TK 2852 and the train on TK 2860. The dresses are very similar and all Tara Keely (same line). What color would you say that is? They are saying ivory but the ivory i'm seeing from Endenbridal is just a bit darker than white.

      That's like a champagne/ivory color, too me. It's very pretty.

        I've seen those! But unfortunately I can only where a Nubra (which by the way is a Godsend!), because of the back of my dress. It has thin staps that crisscross, so I need a completely backless option and the only one that gives me cleavage are those sticky pad types like Nubra. Thanks though! I will try to get pics as soon as possible, the dresses are in!

          I read over this forum and decided to order from gianinarbridal. The original dress I wanted was a Maggie Sottero, Lavina Royale. Click the image to open in full size.

            Medecash your dress is beautiful :) That being said I agree that the chest area may give you some issues if you are as small up there as you have alluded to :) Me too honey so don't feel bad. Anyway, I really think they can do something with this. From the pics if they had stopped with the outer fabric in line with what is underneath for their lining, if you know what I mean, that would have given you more of what you're looking for. If you're not in a hurry I'd express my concerns and ask them to change it. You could ask them for a measurement from the top middle over one breast area down to the bottom of where the cup ends (vertical measurement). You can see that pretty clearly on the dress. Once they give it to you put on a bra and take that measurement on yourself. It should give you a really good idea of where this will sit on you. Hope this helps. I've dabbled a bit in the area of "seamstress" although I'd never call myself one. A few things did rub off on me though. They did a fantastic job replicating this one. I was really considering using Endenbridal but received a quote from Guininarbridal for 180 dollars but they say they can only come to 75 percent close to the original. Is that their typical response?

              Thanks :) I'm a seamstress myself, and I'm trying not to be too picky over the details but the bust did seem far too large so I sent them a request to measure it again.
              I was quoted 120$ for this dress. They were confident they could replicate the dress almost exactly. In the end its never going to be the original dress, its about 85% close to the maggie...but its 100% the dress I want (or will be when the changes have been made) for an unbelievable price.... I'm very happy I chose gianinarbridal.

                  Medecash, I think that should sort you out for sure! I think they have done a remarkable job with your dress. It really is amazing and especially when you consider the price tag.

                    i think it's all about how YOU feel in the dress. if you're ok with a knockoff - there's no reason anyone else has to know!

                      Soooo.... they made the regular lavina for me. Here's me in it this Saturday at our AHR. I loved the dress!!! The beading was different but I didn't mind. I also didn't think the fit was quite as flattering but attributed it to my gaining 30 pounds between trying on the original and the wedding. Oops!
