Cien

Due to our exclusive luxury laces, this style is extremely limited. We recommend securing your gown as soon as you know it’s ‘The One’.

Instantly captivating and powerful, the Cien celebrates all that is woman. The epitome of effortless glamour, Cien fuses a modern mermaid silhouette that hugs the curves with our iconic off-the-shoulder armbands, decorated with an exclusive scalloped trim. Handmade in our Australian studio with luxurious stretch lace and a combination of unique trims, the Cien is comfortable and easy to wear, and can be worn with a strapless bra. The perfect mix of feminine, sophisticated, sensual and bold, the woman who wears Cien demands attention.

Your gown will be made to order, especially for you. Our Customer Service team will be in touch with you within days of you placing your order to discuss your measurements, height and size preference. It's important to note that our gowns are specifically designed for an easy, comfortable and versatile fit with luxurious stretch laces and stretch components in each design. Your measurements act as a guide and we make your gown to the dress size that each part of your body fits. This might mean your measurements have placed you as an all-over, equal size or your bust, waist, hip may differ in size categories. Don't worry, this is very normal and everyone is different.

Simply choose the dress size that best suits your general dress size in the size dropdown menu below. You can add your measurements, height and wedding date to your order and we will also confirm this with you after you place your order. If you do not have your measurements on hand whilst you are ordering, don't worry, we will get them off you at your earliest convenience.

Each style dress has specific measurements we need, some more than others, depending on how fitted it is.

For very urgent orders we offer ready-made gowns in some styles. These are made to standard all-over dress sizes and a standard height (155cm). If you are in need of an urgent, ready-made gown please email [email protected]

We are here to help you throughout the process. You can contact our Stylist team if you have any questions regarding styles and sizing - [email protected]

Measurements we need:
- Bust
- Under bust
- Waist
- Hip
- Cup size
- Shoulder to floor

Each gown is made uniquely by hand and no two gowns will ever be the same. As such the placement of motifs may differ slightly and not appear exactly as on our models.

Stylist Notes

"Cien was my first “favourite” during the design process. It’s instantly captivating and powerful. We decided to offer it with the nude tone and ivory tone linings as we know brides will love both. As you know, off the shoulder arm bands are a signature of ours (since Josee from 2011!) so Cien is very much a signature look for us. It celebrates and hugs the body, and screams sexy, feminine and sophisticated glamour." - GLL Founder, Megan.

"Cien oozes sensuality and sex appeal with its off-the-shoulder, fit and flare silhouette. This is the perfect gown for the sassy mamasita. Strategically emphasizing your decolletage and collar bone, I love to team the Cien up with our Sundance Earrings which fall just above the collar bone. I also recommend our Fox Veil to add extra bridal appeal and really complete the look." - GLL Stylist, Bec.

"For our lovers of anything off-the-shoulder - say hello to the Cien! Featuring our stunning European abstract lace as seen on the Edie and Mai gowns, coupled with a flattering fitted, mermaid silhouette, there is nothing not to love about the Cien. Style the Cien with the gorgeous Wire Hoop Earrings, Dosa heels and Gabriela or Henri veil to complete your look." - GLL Stylist, Kate.

"It’s hard to go past our Cien gown! An unforgettable silhouette which hugs the figure in all the right places, the Cien is bound to be a signature GLL gown in no time! I love styling Cien with our Alamo Major Earrings, Dosa Heels and Henri Veil to complete the look!" - GLL Stylist, Angela.

Gown FAQs

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear a strapless bra with the Cien gown for shape and support.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Cien is fully lined with a soft stretch ivory or nude-tone lining.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Cien feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade with an exclusive abstract stretch lace with exotic trims.

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 protected]

How is my dress made?
We hand make your dress especially for you in our studio. We are based in Queensland, Australia and we deliver worldwide.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every bride 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.
