Our lovely Sydney
based customer Isabella recently attended her Year 10 Formal and chose to hire our Lover The Label ‘Red Lula Halter Dress’
, a vibrant red, halter neck, lace midi dress with a low back. Here she shares more about her GlamCorner rental experience:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I rented this dress for my Year 10 Formal in Sydney
. I was always certain that I wanted a designer dress because the fit, colour and design would be of a much higher quality and therefore more flattering compared to cheap copies. Since it is often easy to distinguish between expensive and cheap formal dresses, I wanted to look classy and expensive while feeling great.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I knew that designer formal dresses, although stunning, are sold at ridiculously high prices. Since I’d only be wearing the dress once, renting a dress was the logical thing to do – I knew it would save a ton of money. Searching for a dress to rent online is also much faster than browsing in a physical shop.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I rented the Red Lula Halter Dress by Lover
and also paid an extra $15 to rent the Snow Halo Sheath Dress by Lover as a backup option (in case I wanted a different dress at the last minute). While browsing the GlamCorner website, I fell in love with the intricate lace detailing on all of the Lover dresses and concluded that I wanted a Lover dress. I then eliminated some dresses based on size availability, colour, shape, etc. and narrowed it down. I was looking for a classy, timeless and elegant dress with a modern ‘wow factor’ to make it stand out. The dresses I chose fitted my criteria; the Red Lula Halter Dress had an open back with ribbon while the Snow Halo Sheath Dress had a lace panel with several patterns. These features made the dresses classic but unique. In the end I went with the Red Lula Halter Dress because I discovered that several girls were wearing white lace dresses to my formal.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This was my first time renting a dress and I chose to do so because of the ridiculous price tag associated with designer dresses. I never knew there were dress rental services available until I saw an article in the newspaper last year. I was very skeptical and assumed dress rental services would be unreliable with vague sizing, late postage and possibly even fake dresses. However, after visiting the GlamCorner website, seeing their detailed size guides, product authenticity guarantees, express postage and amazing reviews, I considered dress renting as a more serious option.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I found GlamCorner by googling designer dress rental websites. There were many other websites but GlamCorner was by far the best. GlamCorner has a detailed FAQ page, helpful customer service team, clear size guides, reasonable prices and a professional website that is easy to navigate. The other dress rental websites I viewed looked illegitimate/unprofessional and were hard to navigate, charged a much higher price (sometimes $50 more) for the same or similar dresses and had no size guides and no clarification as to their rental progress.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
My experience with GlamCorner was absolutely fantastic! I am so impressed with their services. Any queries I had were answered within the day (by email), the dresses arrived freshly dry cleaned a day earlier than scheduled, the try-on service offered was great value ($30 for two dresses) and extremely useful…the list of reasons why I love GlamCorner goes on forever! Their Snapchat exclusive discount codes and frequent public site-wide sales made it even easier to get an extra $20 or so off the original dress rental price (which was already great deal). I would 100% recommend GlamCorner to absolutely all women! The range of clothes (not just dresses!) and accessories is huge and I can honestly say I think GlamCorner has something to suit everyone. GlamCorner is constantly updating their product range with new items that are straight off the runway. I have nothing negative to say about GlamCorner. They are absolutely amazing!
Thanks Isabella! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect designer dress hire possible for your Year 10 Formal. You looked amazing! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
