Customer Story: University Ball gown hire

University Balls are such fun and an opportunity to create many long-lasting special memories with your college friends! Our lovely customer Molly shares with us what it was like to rent our Langhem Elisa Formal Gown - Black to her University of Melbourne College Ball:

University Ball with friends

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?

I attended my residential college’s ball. What I could afford and what I wanted to wear were not the same at all. I wanted to wear something beautiful but not pay the hefty price tag. Renting a dress gave me the freedom of wearing a gorgeous designer dress while paying a more reasonable fee.

What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?

Renting a dress is so much easier than buying a one. If I bought a dress, I would have to wear it to multiple occasions, but I didn’t want to do that. There are not a lot of occasions that call for ball gowns and it was economically better for me to rent a dress. Clothes should be worn, not living in your closet for most of your life. I knew if I bought a dress, I would rarely, or never, wear it again.

Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose for your University Ball, and why you chose it?

I love dresses with sleeves and lace and this dress had both. I want my wedding dress to have these requirements as well. This dress was black, floor length, and had lace all over. I knew this dress was classy and elegant enough for a ball which was what I wanted. I like black dresses a lot and after reading how the dress should fit me, it was a perfect match.

Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?

This was my first time renting a dress. It is definitely not my last. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money for a dress I would only wear on several occasions. I was at a wedding once and one of the guests wore a gorgeous dress and she told me she rented it. It makes sense to rent a dress for these occasions because buying one is so expensive. Men rent tuxedos, why can’t women rent dresses?

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I Googled rental shops in Australia and this was the first one on the search list. I like the design of the website and how user-friendly it is. Also, there were so many options and prices that I was quickly impressed and wanted to rent from GlamCorner!

How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?

I would highly recommend GC to other women. In fact, I already have! Everyone at the ball complimented my dress and asked where I got it, so I told them from GC and that I rented it. All of the women there were shocked to hear they could rent beautiful designer dresses at great value. I already plan on renting again for another occasion coming up.
