SOFIA

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.

A delicate and effortlessly enchanting gown designed for the wild romantic, the Sofia gown from our B L A N C Collection is perfect for the contemporary bohemian. This simplistic and charming gown is the kind of gown that you’ll never want to take off.

The Sofia, an understated gown that exudes relaxed glamour, has been handmade in our Australian studio with French Chantilly lace and a milky Crepe de Chine silk, bias-cut slip, designed to highlight the décolletage and skin. Beginning with a flattering, V neckline, the Sofia features embroidered French lace shoulders and cap sleeve panels which flow into a graduated, waterfall sleeve. The full circle Chantilly lace skirt features an un-even hem and layers of gathered laces of graduated length, which sits off the ground at the centre front and flows into a dramatic 100cm train. A concealed finger loop is attached to the train to provide a bustle-like effect to keep you moving and dancing all night.

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.

Designer & Head Stylist Notes

Feminine, Romantic & Enchanting.

What a luxe piece! The French Chantilly lace is absolutely crazy beautiful and is highlighted in this gown. The sleeve and skirt have got to be the standout features to this gown.

Super flattering on everyone, and you will feel so comfortable and confident which is always a good thing. Highlights your waist and great on the bust. Sofia brides will glow and look like a dream.

Has a sense of 70's but can be styled and interpreted in so many ways whether you're a bohemian beauty or a classic rose.

- Chase or Khalo choker

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
Yes, the silk slip dress underneath the lace overlay allows you to wear a skin-coloured bra if you wish.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Sofia gown has a Crepe de Chine silk, bias cut under dress making it fully lined in all the right places.

What does it feel like to wear?
Effortless and beautiful with no restrictive boning or structure. Luxury and comfort at its finest.

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 info@graceloveslace.com.au

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.
