I haven't seen any websites for Laos Traditional Dress, but I 've seen ones for Thai. They're not Laotian like you want it, but they're similar, they're Thai-style dresses. If you want the sites just let met know.

I've been on the ramthai.com website before and I email them asking about the dress size and color and they email me back. They said that you could either send them your measurement and they also had a dress measurement too and so you could pick from there. It seems they are reliable but I'm not sure if I want to order something from there yet.

I have order from them and the quality are not like you expect it should be... So don't order from them... It's just a waste of money... It's better off to buy your own material and find someone who could sew the tradtional dress. It might not be the exact pretty but it's better then ramthai...

We have a store here in town that sometimes carry the "sin mai" That's where i got most of mine, and also the one i wore to my wedding. But then you'll have to find someone to sew it for you. Which i also agree with Vilasaeng, it's a lot cheaper, and sometimes it would look as good as the ones you see online.

Do you guys not have a local Laos grocery store. They usually carry some Laos silk.

Another way I get my fabric is that there's a lot of Khon Laos living in my community, so when they go back to Laos, they always bring back some Laos Silk to Sell.

For my sisters wedding, we had to get our Aunt in Laos to buy the fabric for us and send it to us. Here's my sister's wedding outfit... isn't it beautiful? The detailing on the "pa biang" is the latestest trend. It was so heavy it cost $60 just to send it.
