@jennyferr:   Several Paloma Blanca dresses are a gorgeous, luxurious silk diupioni.  What a treat to try on a dress that breathes!!  I didn’t get one of their dresses but was so tempted.  

edited to add – I tried on many Maggie Sottero dresses which were all 100 % polyester.

@jennyferr:  BHLDN mostly carries dresses that are silk. They actually tell you the fiber content somewhere in each dress listing on their site, which is really nice. I adore their dresses, and they have a variety of styles and shapes. Most are around $1000 but some are a lot more.

I know my particular Marisa dress is silk. I think the lining is polyester. Not sure if all of Marisa’s dresses use silk.

Thanks for the list you’ve already compiled. Jcrew are mostly silk but not all so check the fibre content. Catherine Deane, carried by BHLDN, are silk, but not all the dresses BHLDN carries are. Jenny Yoo dresses are silk.
