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 shoulder to floor height (155cm). If you are in need of an urgent, ready-made gown please email [email protected]

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.

Special Notes + Questions
The Gia features built in cups for shape and support. A thicker padded cup is also available by request.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The Gia is fully lined with a breathable stretch lining.
What does it feel like to wear?
The Gia feels beautiful and comfortable to wear. It has been handmade with stretch French lace and a lightweight ivory stretch lining, with 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 of their wedding date. 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?
All of our dresses are designed and handmade 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.

I had been eyeing off the GIA for months prior to getting engaged so it was no surprise for my mom, grandma, and I that it was the one. Sometimes you just know! When the wedding day came, I could not wait to put my dress and veil on. It fit like a glove and made me feel effortlessly sexy. I honestly didn't want to take it off and would have slept in it had my husband thought it was also a good idea. Thank you again for making my wedding day. My only complaint is that I have nowhere else to wear it now!

Just wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone at Grace Loves Lace for the dress of my dreams! I tried on the Gia gown and purchased it the same day. Your stylists and everyone I spoke to via email were incredibly helpful. There is not one thing I would change about this dress, I am still receiving compliments on it to this day!!
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart,
I decided on the Gia gown because of how comfy and effortless it was, yet it still made a statement. I didn’t want to be drowned in fabric and I wanted to still look like myself while walking down the aisle. I love to dance and wanted something that was comfy and easy to move in, but also fitted with the perfect amount of sexy, which is why I love the slit and deep V cut in the front. My favourite part about the dress was the train. It was so fun to hold and twirl around in and then be able to bustle it up into the romantic, playful ruffles. It was like having two dresses in one!
I loved the Gia not only because of its beautiful design and comfort, but also because it felt made to fit my body perfectly – no alterations necessary! The dress let me have fun and focus on what was most important on our wedding day – us!
