Hollie

With a unique, timeless silhouette and a combination of wildly romantic elements, the Hollie is without a doubt the signature GLL gown. A dress designed to create beautiful hidden moments and effortless movement; the Hollie is a gown that you can truly wear in your own way.

Named after a member of the GLL family, the Hollie has been designed in a distinct, figure flattering shape that has gained attention around the world. Beginning with a stretch French lace bodice with hand cut appliquéd lace motifs and understated spaghetti straps; you will fall in love with the delicate, feminine details of the Hollie. The stunning low back, the highlight of this captivating gown, gives the Hollie an ethereal feel. The stretch lace skirt is available in mid thigh or floor length, whilst remaining floor length at the back. The skirt is then layered with soft silk chiffon panels, trimmed with lace motifs, which fall elegantly to create a train.

Please note: Our Tara dress is similar to the Hollie gown but with a fully lined, floor length silk chiffon skirt.

Size + Fit

Our model (pictures 5-11) wears a standard XS (Australian size 8). Each gown requires particular measurements to be taken, these measurements then determine your dress size. If you are unsure of your dress size, please visit our sizing page to view our measurement charts and a video.Do not worry if you are measuring different dress sizes for different parts of your body, this is common. Our customer care team communicates with you throughout the process.

In between sizes? Each one of our gowns is made from a beautiful stretch French lace, so it all comes down to personal preference. Do it your way, choose whether you’d like a form fitting gown or a more relaxed fit.

The statement low back features appliqued hand cut lace motifs. Soft panels of silk chiffon, which are trimmed with appliqued floral motifs, create a flowing skirt and 40cm train.

Stylists' Notes

We envision a barefoot, beach bride with tousled hair and bronze skin in our Hollie gown with the short lining. Styled ideally with the Virtue earrings, as the bright turquoise colour will pop against the crisp white lace. The Venus or Hera anklet would perfectly suit the carefree Hollie gown.

The Hollie dress with the floor length lining is perfect for a more classic feel, styled with the elegant Gabriella veil and Maya earrings. The flowing panels of sheer silk chiffon will highlight the understated white Dosa heels perfectly.

Special Notes + Questions

* Please note: Our Tara dress is similar to the Hollie, but with a fully lined, floor length silk chiffon skirt.

Can I wear a bra?
The Hollie has built in cups, so there is no need to wear a bra.

What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Hollie is lined to the thigh. The bottom half of the dress is semi-sheer to highlight the lace detailing and silk chiffon panels.

What does it feel like to wear?
The Hollie feels beautiful and effortless to wear, as it has been handmade with lightweight French lace and soft silk chiffon, and it has no restrictive boning or structure.

How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to hand make our beautiful dresses. For urgent last minute orders please email info@graceloveslace.com.au

How is my dress made?
All of our dresses are designed and hand made at our studio on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every Grace girl what they request in terms of alterations, however each and every one of our gowns undergo intensive design processes to ensure that the fit, feel and balance of each dress is absolutely perfect. Therefore, we do not offer customisations, unless stated.

What if I lose/gain weight?
Our designs are crafted from luxurious French stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, the original size still fits beautifully. If not, it is also very easy to have the dress altered by a professional seamstress if you would like it to be a little more fitted. Your measurements will determine which size you fall into.

Furthermore, we go to every effort to ensure your dress is the right fit. If you place your order well in advance of your wedding date then we can confirm your size right before your dress goes into production.
