With a slimming silhouette and just the right balance of lace and silk chiffon, the limited edition Vida gown really is ‘The One.’ Fusing a daring open back, with delicate drapes and hand cut lace motifs, The Vida is a dreamy gown that was made for the eternal romantic.
Beginning with a form-fitting, plunging V-neck bodice, made from a unique French stretch lace and hand cut floral applique, The Vida has been designed to flatter the décolletage, as well as the shoulders and back. The open, deep V back with flowing silk chiffon drapes and floral applique is the highlight of the beautiful Vida, a true GLL favourite. The full, silk chiffon skirt, which features soft ruffles and a satin lining, forms into an elegant train to create fluid movement.
The Vida is made to a standard size & height.

The silk chiffon sashes on the back can be worn draped or fit flush against the body. The waist is elasticated and the soft silk chiffon skirt falls gracefully over the tummy and hips. The full skirt has been lined with a satin lining and forms elegantly into a 40cm train.

Specialty Notes + Questions
You can wear a strapless, adhesive bra for shape and support, or no bra at all.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The Vida is fully lined – the bodice features a stretch spandex lining and the skirt has a soft, satin lining.
What does it feel like to wear?
The Vida feels delicate and romantic 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 email@example.com
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.
