Eveninng gowns for my Lara body

I finally took the plunge, and got a Lara body. (Yay me!)

I am looking for creators who do evening gowns for that body. I know I can adapt standard sizes with the HUD alphas - but I wear gowns for work a couple of times a month, and am looking for options.
I'm very big on slinky gowns - I have a lot from Rebel Hope, but at this point she has not done gowns in other than standard sizes. I skimmed through the demo section on MP, and nothing grabbed me. Maitreya itself has next to nothing.
I don't mind a daring gown, but, as I said,75-80% of the time I wear them for work at Club Noir, and it's not the kind of place to wear a daring gown - especially since I am spinning.
I don't wear pink or yellow or orange - not good colors for me. And as a full-time ginger head with fair skin, I look best in strong colors - especially the stereotyped emerald green.

Here's a couple of gowns I have (in multiple colors) and wear a lot.





I turn to you, oh fashionistas!

the store just because does lovely gowns, and their mesh always fits maitreya nicely: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/22086 lots of different styles and color options, too!

also, the store junbug has been doing maitreya sizes in their latest releases. i don't see any of their newer releases to link you on the marketplace, but you can browse their flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/99635788@N04) to see them. junbug is more frilly than slinky, but their dresses are lovely, too.

The name that immediately springs to mind for me is Dead Dollz. Very slinky, can be risque. Probably one of the best designers for Maitreya fitted clothes out there, you just have to like her style.

Other than that, ISON do nice gowns. I know she has at least one that's got a Lara size.

Sakide has one I think you'd appreciate, with vintage overtones but a very modern neckline.

Baiastice have some work in that direction. You could also try Zenith and The Annex.

My Favorite dress is from Ison. All the suggestions above are great . I always do a dance test with the demos as I only dress up for dances.
Also Purple Moon and Valentina E.

Here's a couple of quick snaps of my first purchase. This is Sammy,by Just Because. (You saw this if you were at the first SLU holiday party while I was there.) I also got it in green. The picture was taken at Club Noir,which is my favorite setting for taking pictures when I am all dressed up.

Here's another one at Club Noir. This is Maya,also by Just Because. I'm also wearing the Fancey sandals by Baby Monkey, and the pearls that came as part of the Baby Monkey advent gifts this year.
