Grace Loves Lace - Hendrix
This dress is so comfortable!!
I rarely get super 'dressed up' and the thought of going into a bridal store terrified me!! I really wanted to feel comfortable and feel like myself, and this dress truly made that possible. I had so much fun and spent the entire wedding running around and dancing, I didn't feel restricted or annoyed by the dress at all. Everyone was commenting on how beautiful and unique the dress was.
The skirt has an elasticated waist and is dense in a beautiful, good quality way, but is not super heavy or restrictive. The top is sheer at the back and around the sleeves and neck which adds a really pretty and delicate effect to the dress. The top and skirt combo created a more edgy, unconventional bridal look, while still being super pretty.
The dress is made of a very delicate mesh with stunning, intricate embroidery on the top and the bottom of the skirt. The skirt is lined with beautiful, light weight satin with an elasticated waist, and the colour is bright white.
I am usually a size 6 - 8 in tops and 8 - 10 in pants/skirts. The measurements of the dress are as follows:
Under bust: 79cm
Shoulder – floor: 138.5cm + 2cm (flat shoes) = total 140.5cm
The Grace Loves Lace Description:
For the modern woman with an affinity for classic shapes and clean lines, Hendrix is made for the chic bride who sets her own rules. Balancing bold patterned white embroidery with barely-there sheer mesh, the effect is like a piece of art; timeless and mesmerizing.
The loose tee is rigid in shape and features soft sheer mesh shoulders and fly-away sleeves, framing the décolletage beautifully. The detailed cut-out embroidery hem meets the elastic waist of the full skirt that creates a sense of grandeur whilst remaining completely wearable and comfortable.
Hendrix makes a luxurious fashion-forward statement and is just as magnificent to wear as it is to watch. Wear with our Gabriela veil, Dosa or Honour heels and minimal jewellery. Complete the look with a bold lip and dewey skin.
Hendrix falls over the head and pulls down without the use of buttons or zips, the skirt has an elastic waist band. The crisp bold white suits all skin tones. The top is beautifully soft and sheer on the shoulders, chest and arms, from the bust down the embroidery is rigid but comfortable. Hendrix is made from a spectacular patterned embroidery on a net base and a soft mesh, the skirt is fully lined and the top is lined at the front.
What does it feel like to wear? Luxurious and formal. Hendrix is heavier to wear than our other dresses but is extremely comfortable and breathable, without zips, buttons or boning.
Can I wear a bra? You can wear an adhesive bra or a skin coloured strapless bra.
What underwear do I wear? We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all? Hendrix is lined at the front of the top and all through the skirt. The back of the top is unlined so that the detail of the embroidery can stand out.

The dress comes with the original dust-bag and Grace Loves Lace packaging. It will be sent via express post with tracking and insurance. Note: I will be away on my honeymoon from 3rd July - 5th August and may not be able to respond to any messages during that time. I will get back to you as soon as I return :)
The dress is in near-perfect condition - there are just some very, very minor marks at the bottom of the skirt on the lining where it has touched the ground, about 2mm of discolouration just along the seam. It is on the inside, under the outer layer, so cannot be seen at all when worn. Otherwise the dress is in perfect condition, no visible stains, rips etc. I'm happy to answer any queries you may have or send you additional photos :)
The dress can be cold hand-washed safely so you won't need to spend $300+ on dry-cleaning after your big day.
