Our lovely customer Rose recently chose to hire our Jadore ‘Shae Gown’ for her night at the med ball in Wollongong. This flattering mermaid gown features a gorgeous sweetheart neckline with off the shoulder straps and a thigh high split. What a stunner! Read more about her med ball gown rental experience below:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I wore this dress for my university medical student society ball in Wollongong. It is our major event on the year where 200 students and staff let loose and celebrate the efforts of the year. I was organising the event this year as social representative and really wanted to stand out and feel amazing for the evening after all the planning that went into it.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
It was so appealing to rent as this is the type of event where you are on display, these photos are used in our fresher guides, magazines and in promotional advertisements so I knew that whichever dress I wore I couldn’t really wear again. It’s also so appealing to be able to wear a really beautiful dress for a night like this for a fraction of the cost and without the drama of going to stores and trying them all on.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I wore the black, floor length Jadore dress, it had a thigh split and is off the shoulder. I chose it because it seemed perfect for my body shape and just so elegant and classic. Another major reason I chose this dress over others was because there was actually a size 14/16 model wearing the dress in the advertisement, this meant that I could imagine what the dress would look like on my frame rather than another size 8 model as per normal. I think that is an excellent from GlamCorner and one which I know would push for more women in the size 14-18 category, which you cater for wonderfully, to utilise your service.
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 the first time renting from anywhere, I have looked into it before but not having tried the dress on, sometimes its not an option, was really daunting to me. This time I looked however, I discovered that you could rent a second dress for just $15, a wonderful option which I utilised. This took away the drama as I felt I could make a safe choice, the black Jadore and a bold choice, a long lace Pasduchas gown and make my decision.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I found it through friends who have recommended them before, it only took a quick google to find them though.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
It was a wonderful experience, my dresses arrived early, with plenty of time for me to try on before the event and pick my accessories and hair. The dresses cam beautifully packaged with a few little goodies packed in. I would recommend them to anyone and have already been stalking dresses for my next few events! I think they offer a little something more than the average hire company and really cater to everyone.
Thanks for sharing your story Rose! You looked absolutely breathtaking! We’re so happy we were able to help you feel and look amazing on your special day in the perfect ball gown. We look forward to seeing you again soon! xo
