Melbourne Dress Hire FAQs

How does The Volte dress hire work?

If you want to hire a dress in Melbourne, doing it through The Volte is easy!

For example, if you've been dreaming of draping yourself in an Alemais dress at your next soiree, you can begin by searching our extensive online gallery of Alemais dresses on your quest for the one. Once that perfect piece catches your eye, you can feel free to reach out to our support team for any queries about its fit, if need be.

Otherwise, you're ready to lock in your dress choice!

We recommend booking your dress well ahead to sidestep any shipping hiccups, especially for those in-demand styles. The rental fee is all-encompassing, taking care of return postage, and even the dry cleaning.

Received your dress and noticed a wrinkle or two? No stress! Hang it in a room filled with steam, and watch those creases fade away.

How much does formal dress hire in Melbourne cost?

The cost of formal dress hire in Melbourne can vary based on numerous factors. However, when sized up against the hefty retail price, hiring often emerges as the smart choice. For instance, purchasing a fresh-off-the-rack designer evening gown could lighten your wallet by anything from $500 to soaring amounts above $2,000.

At The Volte, dress rental typically spans from $30 to several hundred dollars. This is with the exception of wedding dress hire, where you might see rates peaking up to $3,000, especially for something exquisite, like a Galia Lahav masterpiece.

It's worth mentioning that our listed Melbourne dress hire prices encompass both return postage and dry cleaning, letting you flaunt opulent, top-tier attire without lavish expenditure.

How do I know what dress is right for me?

If you've been browsing through endless streams of hire dresses in Melbourne and feel daunted by the concept of narrowing it down to just one, don't worry, we've got you! 

Here are some straightforward tips to help you choose a dress that aligns with your style and complements your body:

  1. Body type insights: Understand what styles flatter your specific body shape. For instance, A-line dresses might suit pear-shaped bodies by balancing proportions, while V-necklines can elongate and flatter those with broader shoulders.
  2. Colour choices: Stick to colours that suit your skin undertones. Picking shades that resonate with your natural complexion can bring out a healthy glow.
  3. Know your fit: Avoid sizing errors by having your measurements handy. This ensures a great fit and reduces the hassle of exchanges.
  4. Trusted brands: If there's a brand you've loved in the past, like Rachel Gilbert, starting with their collection can be helpful.

Remember, the objective is to both look and feel confident in your dress choice.

What is the ideal length of an evening dress?

The length of an evening gown isn't strictly defined. While many tend to sweep the floor or ankles, contemporary styles might stop at mid-calf. You can feel confident in choosing the length that works best for you.

Is hiring a dress or buying a dress a better option?

Opting for a dress hire in Melbourne at The Volte is both a smart and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing. This choice lets you revel in a constantly updated collection of premium designer items without burning a hole in your pocket. It also champions a cyclical fashion approach, cutting down on waste and lessening the environmental footprint.
