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.
The dress dreams are made of! With a unique combination of French and Japanese lace, paired with a flattering classic fit and a statement low back, the Inca is an unforgettable, signature GLL gown. Made for the woman with effortless style, with substance and passion. Inca is a piece of art with unique shapes and contouring, designed to highlight the female figure in the most flattering way.
Designed with a straight boat neck and a barely there, 7/8 length sleeve, the Inca has been cleverly constructed with all the right elements. The daringly low back is the highlight of this exquisite gown, which will be remembered for years to come. The unique paneling, made up of layers of handpicked French lace, Japanese cotton lace, hand cut motifs and sheer, detailed cutouts, gives the Inca a romantic, yet contemporary feel. The stretch lining is available in ivory or nude, with the option of a mid-thigh length or a more formal floor length, depending on personal style. The Inca is finished with an elegant train, handmade from layers of carefully curated lace and Italian silk.

Size, Fit & Ordering
Model measurements (in picture 1):
The model is a size XXS-XS. The sample worn is a standard, ready-made size XS.
The Inca stretches over the head and down the body, with no need for buttons or zips. Designed to fall naturally over the hips, the Inca features silk godets that drop from the hips and elongate your figure. Inca is not a skin-tight gown, but falls over the body beautifully.
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:
- Under bust
- Shoulder to wrist
- Shoulder to floor height
- Shoulder to shoulder
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.
Our Styling Tips
The Inca with ivory lining would look perfect styled with the Gabriela veil in ivory, the rose gold Flores earrings and the white Dosa heels.
Special Notes + Questions
You can wear an adhesive bra with the Inca if you want extra shape and support.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The Inca is available with ivory or nude lining, available in mid-thigh or floor length.
What does it feel like to wear?
The Inca is a beautiful and incredibly comfortable dress to wear, as it has been handmade with lightweight lace, and it has no boning or structure. This gown has been designed to suit all body shapes.
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?
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.
I just wanted to let you know that my beautiful Inca dress arrived yesterday and it fits like a glove. It is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to wear it. People thought that I was crazy by ordering my wedding dress online from Australia without trying it before, but It was totally worth it! It is absolutely my dreamy dress.
Thanks you GLL girls for everything.
I’ll send you pics of the wedding!
Hello! I just wanted to say I’ve just received my Inca wedding dress and I am so in love with it!! I just wanted to thank you! I was so weary of buying probably the most important piece of clothing I will wear online without trying it on or knowing if it even suited me but it was the most stress free experience, every question and query was answered so quickly and I was really put at ease, so thank you :-)
I will be sending pictures of the day afterwards!
Lots of love, Holly x

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!
My dress arrived yesterday. It couldn’t be more perfect it has exceeded my expectations and I know that I couldn’t have made a better choice then buying Inca from your beautiful team. I couldn’t stop staring at myself in the mirror when I had it on, and I didn’t even have my hair and makeup perfected like I will for my special day.
Thank you so so much. I will definitely provide photos from the day.
Merry Christmas, keep safe and have a great new year.
It was love at first sight. I had spent 2 months visiting different bridal salons, reading blogs, following Pinterest... but nothing spoke to me, until I saw the Inca dress and immediately knew that it was "the one". When I tried on the dress it fit like a glove - no alterations were needed!
