Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ball Gown Rented this for a masquerade ball and loved it, I felt comfortable and glam all night! It's a great flattering style which I paired with my highest of high black stiletto's and a simple hairstyle because the dress was pretty wow. Love this brand - the structure of their dresses and fabrics used are perfect for my shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Black Tie Dress I wore this dress one week ago to a work function and it was perfect. I was super impressed by having the dress delivered to my door that day, not to mention the ability to pop it in the pre-paid express post bag at the end of the hire. With two young kids, this saved me a lot of running around. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant dress Wore this on the weekend to a black tie event. Was amazing! Very comfortable and elegant dress. Pros: beautiful thicker lined material with some stretch - and very flattering shape. Cons: Very long - I'm 170cms and had to wear very high heels. The neckline/top was also a little larger as although I'm a size 16, I don't have a large bust, but I wore a strapless bra which helped keep it up. Would be happy to wear in every colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinderella didn't make it to the ball! Rented this dress to go to a ball. Ended up not making it due to be unwell with the flu. Devastated as the dress was GORGEOUS. Can't wait for a reason to hire it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress for a ball I rented this dress for a charity ball. It arrived a day later. I ordered a size larger than normal (just got back from an indulgent holiday, y'know how it is, ladies!) but unfortunately it was too big. Its such a shame because I LOVED it. Looked amazing but was so easy to wear and comfortable. True to size and with a stretchy fabric, there's no need to "go up a size" like some dresses. I can't wait to rehire it for another occasion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress! Having moved here from overseas, I was thrilled to discover Australia has a service similar to Rent the Runway. The site has been easy to navigate with many dress choices. This composure gown was beautiful, comfortable, and fit right into the black tie wedding we attended. It arrived a week before my event and was hassle free to return by post. Thank you Glam Corner xo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charity ball gown I rented this beautiful and classical dress for a charity ball last month and it was perfect. Gorgeous, simple lines, nice amount of stretch to curve around my shape and lots of movement.
