Hens parties are a fabulous evening of celebration spent with your closest girlfriends and whether its your own Hens Party or one of your best friends, looking your best is essential! As all women know, we dress for each other and when we come together for a girls only event we know hundreds of selfies and photos are going to be taken! For such a special occasion we want to wear something beautiful and flattering but also fun and flirty. Finding the perfect outfit can feel like a chore and trying not to break the bank can feel impossible but GlamCorner has made dress hunting easy with our endless wardrobe of designer dresses, playsuits, jumpsuits and gowns – suitable for all sorts of occasions – and the cherry on top is that everything is available for hire at a fraction of the retail price! Our lovely customer Ylana shares her experience of hiring our Alice McCall ‘Keep Me There Playsuit’ in red for her best friends Hens Party in Sydney.
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My besties and I have been friends since we started high school, a whole 18 years! We now live all over the country so getting together is a big deal, and getting together to celebrate one of our impending weddings made it even bigger. I have recently lost the dreaded ‘baby weight’ and wanted to look and feel amazing for this super special occasion, so after one of my friends pointed out a red Alice McCall playsuit, I knew that was the one!
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
As a mum of 3 young kids, I don’t get out much! Having a girls weekend in Sydney and celebrating our hen was a bit of a treat, and I wanted to make sure I enjoyed every second I had to myself. I wanted an amazing outfit to celebrate, without the price tag to match! Renting an outfit just made sense; a reasonable price for a gorgeous outfit.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
One of my friends pointed out the red Alice McCall “Keep Me There” playsuit early on in my search for an outfit, and no matter what else I looked at, I seemed to keep coming back to it. The colour was the first thing that caught my eye, and I loved the lace. I also loved that it was revealing in all the right places, while also adding a bit of coverage with the cut-away kimono sleeves. I love Alice McCall’s feminine and playful styles, which was exactly what I was looking for. The fit was absolutely spot on and was very flattering on the legs (an absolute must for me!). It always makes me feel good to support an Australian label too.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This was the first time I had ever rented a dress. I previously purchased outfits and wore a few times before moving on, but I don’t have as many occasions to wear nice outfits too these days! A friend has mentioned to me that she always rented outfits for events, and financially it made sense!
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
A friend of mine has used your site to hire an outfit before and told me that you had the outfit I was looking for. After checking out your prices and policies, I decided that you offered the best service. I was stoked to discover the $10 off first time hires, which certainly helped sweeten the deal!
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
10/10! I am very happy with my overall experience with GC. The outfit was a great hire price, arrived on time and was packaged so beautifully, which was a nice surprise. The playsuit was in amazing condition and was exactly as described. I didn’t realise you had a 24-hour return policy until I opened the box and read the included information, which is so great if the outfit doesn’t fit and instantly helped me feel less stressed about my decision. I am already scouring your site to find an outfit to wear to the wedding in a months time; it’s so hard because there are so many beautiful styles to choose from. I will be recommending GC to all of my friends.
Thanks Ylana, you looked amazing! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
