GlamCorner Designer Dress Hire: REVIEW

Have an event, want to make an impact, but don't know where to start?

This was me last week, relying on a dress I fell in love with, only to have the seams fall apart with days to go... argh! What to do?

I turned immediately to GlamCorner, and while the PR team there came to my rescue, I went through the processes as a normal customer would so I could report back on the whole experience. I can attest that this was the easiest way to dress up with maximum impact at an event, with minimal impact on your wallet, the environment, and your wardrobe space. 

The way to start approaching getting your dream dress is to simply get on the site and start to familiarise yourself with the process.

I am a fan of getting right into the FAQs so I know how the whole thing works.

You can read the whole thing HERE.

Some of the key questions are:

Does GlamCorner have a physical shop? No, they are purely an online designer dress service.

Yes, they do ship Australia wide (but not overseas).

So, if you are like me and prefer the tactile experience (where you get to try clothes on), how do you minimise the risk and ensure there is a very high probability the dress will be your perfect fit?

Here's my tip!

Start searching for the outfit you want - start by refining the search by choosing the event style, the size, or even the designer. I chose to put the type of event in my search engine - in this case, 'gala' - see all the categories here: https://www.glamcorner.com.au/occasions

Then, you refine the search further by checking availability: input your postcode, your size, and delivery date. So, when you want it delivered in order to make it in time for your event. The minimum hire time is 4 days (you get it the day before, try it on, have it ready to wear for the event, then have time to send it back with a return already paid postage satchel 

Now... if you leave it last minute like I did... you CAN choose and order it and have it delivered ON THE SAME DAY!


This is what my experience was, and I was nothing short of happy and relieved with the result.

The best part is that you start to get real savvy on how to navigate the site, and how to understand what will suit you.

From getting the know the fit (does it have stretch?), to seeing what the actual length is from shoulder to toe, to getting the low down on what body shape the dress will fit, you almost kinda can't get it wrong.

Feeling a bit concerned? You can add another dress option as your plan B for a tiny extra $15! Yes!

You can choose from the GlamCorner collection of over 10,000 event dresses and gowns. Want to secure a dress in advance? You can book your favourite dress online up to six months in advance! The dress is then yours for 4 or 8 days, and comes with accidental damage insurance.

So, what if your dress does not fit or you don't like it? GlamCorner asks you just fill out the return request form and send the dress back via the prepaid return bag within 24 hours of delivery (with tags still intact), and they will send you out a new size or offer a full refund. If you've selected the same-day delivery option, they will issue a full refund minus the shipping cost. Pretty good, huh!

So... what did MY GlamCorner dress look like?

Here it is, my Nicole Miller STUNNER, the Loren Stretch Lace Gown - you can shop that look right HERE:
