Dress Care Dress Handling Dress Maintenance Dress Rental Care Dress Storage

When you've found the perfect dress for your special occasion from Simply Borrowed Dresses, it's essential to ensure it looks just as stunning when you wear it. Proper care and maintenance play a crucial role in preserving the beauty and elegance of the dress you've rented. In this guide, we'll walk you through essential dress care tips to help you shine confidently throughout your event.

1. Pre-Event Preparations:
Before your event, take a moment to inspect the dress for any visible imperfections. If you notice any issues, contact our customer support team for assistance. Ensure the dress fits comfortably and make any necessary temporary alterations. If the dress has some minor wrinkles from transit consider using a steamer on low heat. 

2. Dressing and Undressing:
Enlist the help of a friend when putting on and taking off the dress. This reduces the risk of accidental snags or tears. Avoid wearing sharp jewelry or accessories that might catch on delicate fabrics.

3. Handling and Movement:
While wearing the dress, be mindful of your movement to prevent unnecessary stress on the fabric. Avoid dragging the dress on the ground, especially if it has a trailing hem.

4. Food and Drink:
Be cautious while enjoying food and drinks to prevent spills. If a mishap occurs, blot the stain gently with a clean cloth and avoid rubbing, which can worsen the stain.

5. Dancing and Celebrating:
While dancing or participating in activities, keep in mind the dress's design and fabric. Delicate fabrics like lace and tulle may require more attention to prevent snags.

6. After the Event:
Upon returning the dress, hang it on a padded hanger to maintain its shape. Gently brush off any dirt or debris with a soft brush or cloth. 

7. Cleaning and Storage:
Rest assured, we take care of the expert cleaning of all our dresses after every rental. It's best to avoid trying to clean the dress on your own, as using incorrect cleaning methods can harm delicate fabrics. When storing the dress, opt for a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight until you're prepared to return it.

8. Returning the Dress:
Follow the instructions provided by Simply Borrowed Dresses for returning the dress. Package it securely to prevent damage during transit.

By following these dress care and maintenance tips, you can enjoy your rented dress with confidence, knowing it's been properly cared for. Remember that Simply Borrowed Dresses is here to provide guidance and assistance throughout your rental journey. Renting a dress shouldn't just be about the experience; it's about creating lasting memories in a dress that looks and feels exquisite.
