No, not that kind. I mean the kind where you get to wear the dress-of-your-dreams for a night, at a fraction of the cost!! Dress hire is changing the way we shop for our outfits, particularly as we approach Christmas & New Year.
It’s like the Air B&B of retail.
Why Hire Your Next Outfit?
> It’s the perfect solution when you want to make a huge impact but for minimum spend as you generally pay 1/4 of the retail price although this can be as little as 1/6! Amazing!!
> Allows you to continually experiment with fashion trends & your personal style however and whenever you fancy
> If you’re on a weight loss program then you can dress your current size without the commitment of buying
> If you missed out buying a piece you now regret then the hire sites may well stock it
> I’m big on recycling fashion and hiring your next outfit allows guilt free shopping, both for your pocket and the environment!
> Hiring avoids cluttering up your wardrobes with one-off pieces because we all know how hard it is to store gowns, fascinators and hats
> Offers pregnancy-friendly, mother-of-the-bride and bridesmaid options too so if you’re planning your wedding, look no further
> Alternatively if you have beautiful clothes sat in your wardrobe collecting dust, why not try renting them out as a side-hussle and recycle that money on some fab new threads?
It’s human nature to want what what others have… and now you can!
Obviously you have to select the style by size depending on what they have available but with 100’s of fashion styles listed, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Most come with a pre-paid addressed return envelope and include dry cleaning which makes the process super easy.
Here’s my pick of the best..
1. Her Wardrobe
Based in Melbourne but express ship Australia wide you can hire dresses, jumpsuits, millinery and accessories and with $10 off your first dress hire what are you waiting for? They even have a ‘pregnancy-friendly’ section because let’s face it, who want’s to wear daggy maternity dresses?
2. Your Closet
Based in Brookvale NSW but ship Australia wide. These guys also have a ‘bump-friendly’ section as well as a ‘mother-of-the-bride’ collection which is always a notoriously tricky area.
3. One Night Stand Boutique
Based in all major cities, ship Australia wide and are open 7 days a week with no appointment needed! This boutique just focuses on dresses, not accessories too, but they do offer a bridesmaid service stocking several of the same style which is genius, however, you do have to pay for your own returns.
A 100% free service to list your clothes but you have to download the app first but well worth it as there are some lust-worthy pieces to shop OR a free way for you to make money!!
