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
- Shoulder to bust point
- Waist
- Hip
- Cup size
- Heel Height
- 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

"Perfectly poised with an undeniable edge, Renata is for the woman who appreciates a classic gown but wants substance and little more adventure. Designed with our iconic Alexandra gown in mind, Renata allows you to wear a fully concealed bra. I’m completely in love with this dress, its capped sleeve and high neckline with an unexpected open back breathes excitement and contemporary edge.” GLL Founder, Megan.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear your favourite normal bra with the Renata with a fully-lined neckline, or you can wear a strapless bra with the Renata with sweetheart lining.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Renata is fully lined with a soft stretch lining. If you choose the Renata with sweetheart lining, the neckline and top of the back are unlined.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Renata feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade with our signature stretch French lace.

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.

Delivery

We deliver worldwide and sell exclusively through our website and three showroom locations. International orders are sent via UPS Express, which takes between 3-7 business days to arrive. Domestic orders are sent via Australian Express Post, which takes between 1-3 business days to arrive.
