This is really weird… I mean, lots of dresses look similar, but to have a darn near complete copy is rare…. especially when we aren’t talking replicas, but a distinguished designer line… sucks though, I was hoping it would have been more affordable at least lol
I must admit that I am still diggin the MAGGIE dress more. I think red and silver is plaed out, and her dress seems more comfortable and romantic….less cold and vampire-y.
Which is your favorite??
MAGGIE SOTTERO’s AMARA ROYALE
MIA SOLANO’s M2715L

They really are the same. If there is a price difference that might sway me but just by pictures I like the Maggie just a smidge better

i voted maggie because i know the quality of their dresses are pretty much outstanding every time – love that dress btw

Have you seen the dresses in person? The fabric and color may actually be different. If not I’d go with the cheaper one, they look the same!

They’re both gorgeous, but I prefer the Maggie one (I was considering it for myself, once upon a time!).

Well they are the exact same fabric (regal taffeta).
One model is wearing a petticoat. There are minor differences in the design (embroidery), but what raises the bar for the Maggie for me, is the color is gold/scarlet instead of ruby/silver for Mia’s.
But the price is pretty much the same give or take $50, and depending on the particular boutique

That’s crazy! They are identical! I’d have to check the fabric first. Especially how it feels on the inside next to my skin.

The Maggie is definatly better quality in my opinion…
Reason #1 – It actually has a corset back instead of the zipper back on the Mia Solano.
Reason #2 -The band around the waistline has a better design & is wider on the Maggie.
Reason #3- On the back of the dress; the red fabric that is laid over the white skirt is lined up directly in the middle of where the embroidery/beading is, whereas the Mia Solano-the fabric is folded and laid off to the left side of the embellishment.
Reason #4- The lace on the Maggie looks better quality and lays better on the ground behind the model.
Reason #5- The Maggie dress says “romanticelegant/dramatic” to me, the Mia Solano dress says “royal renaissance”.

I wouldn’t be too, too surprised. Maggie Sotero isn’t a designer (as in a person), it’s a company. They buy designs like the rest of those companies do.

I like the Maggie better- it looks higher quality and better made.. much prettier red too!

I can’t believe how much alike they are! I would try them both on because maybe one designer will fit you better than the other? if they both look the same go with the less expensive one!

Yeah I couldn’t vote on this.. they were WAY too similar. That’s crazy, I say leik everyoen else, try them on and check out the fabric, if all else is the same… go with the cheaper one.

lol, how can you pick between them when they look exactly the same?
It looks like the first one has an extra crinoline underneath it….and I’m not so big on the poofy knee look so…yea….weird.
