Mai

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’.

Elegant, feminine and captivating from every angle, Mai is made for the showstopping woman who adores classic sophistication with fresh and unique influences. Giving the illusion of two gowns artfully layered, Mai features a breathable sheer stretch lace top layer with an abstract stretch lace under layer. The silhouette and contrasting features are highlighted by the stunning scalloped edge trim that frames the back, skirt and wrists. A signature GLL combination of unique fabrics and textures.

Pair it with our Kinga veil, Dosa heels and Gaia earrings to complete an undeniably high impact look.

“We designed Mai for my new Sister-in-law Lauren and trust me – she was completely showstopping! She wanted a gown that was classic, elegant and unique with long sleeves, a V neckline and an open back. It took almost 8 months to get the Mai gown perfect and we are head over heels in love with it. The built in cups and finger loop with the dramatic train make it so easy to wear. The use of fabrics and trims are designed to contour the body and create light and shade. The centre-front split in the skirt perfectly balances the entire design. Lauren wore Mai with the white Dosa heels and Tribe anklets, the Kinga veil (with hair up) and the new rose gold Gaia earrings.” Megan, GLL Founder

“This long sleeved, backless V-neck style gown is the ultimate dream! You have asked and Mai has been delivered. It’s unlike many backless styles and actually offers bust support! The unique combinations of gorgeous lace and scallop edged trimming is to die for, the front split makes this style sleek yet incredibly poised and alluring.” Bec, GLL Stylist

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.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
The Mai has built in cups so there is no need to wear a bra. 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 Mai gown is lined to the thigh in a stretch nude coloured lining.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Mai feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade with exclusive stretch French laces and features a unique scalloped embroidery trim.

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.
