Sydney Dress Hire FAQs

What's the process for hiring a dress through The Volte?

If you're looking for a hire dress in Sydney, the process is as straightforward as it gets at The Volte!

Let’s say you've been considering an Alemais piece for your upcoming event. You can start your journey in our expansive online gallery of Alemais dresses to discover the perfect match for you. If you have queries about the fit, our dedicated support team is here to help you.

When you're happy to lock it in, you can confirm your choice by officially reserving your dress. We suggest booking early, especially for popular items. Our all-inclusive dress hire fee covers return shipping and dry cleaning.

If your dress arrives a little creased, don't worry! Just hang it in a steamy room, and it'll be creaseless in no time!

What's the cost of formal dress hire in Sydney?

Prices for formal dress hire in Sydney can differ based on various aspects. It pays to note that compared to retail expenses, dress hire, more often than not, stands out as the economical option.

Buying a designer formal dress can range from $500 to well beyond $2,000. At The Volte, formal gowns generally vary from $30 to a couple of hundred dollars, with exceptions like premium wedding dresses that can touch $3,000 for elite brands like Galia Lahav.

The Sydney dress hire costs you see on our website include both return shipment and dry cleaning, letting you rock the look without the associated costs or hassle.

How do I know what type of dress will suit me best?

Sifting through an abundance of hire dresses in Sydney can be overwhelming. Fear not; we're here to help! Here are a few practical tips to help you refine your pick:

  • Shape and style: Know what designs best highlight your body. For instance, A-line pieces might be ideal for pear shapes, whereas V-necklines can flatter those with wide shoulders.
  • Colour selection: Go for hues that enhance your skin tones, complementing your natural beauty.
  • Fit familiarity: Have your exact measurements on hand to ensure a perfect fit, reducing exchange stresses.
  • Brand loyalty: If you've previously found a brand that tends to fit you well, say Rachel Gilbert, considering their range from the get-go might be beneficial.

Remember, the ultimate goal is to feel comfortable and confident in your chosen dress.

What’s considered the standard length for an evening dress?

When considering the length of an evening gown, it's worth noting that there isn't a one-size-fits-all rule. Traditional designs often extend to the floor or brush the ankles, creating a classic, elongated silhouette. Meanwhile, contemporary versions might settle at mid-calf, introducing a fresh and breezy vibe.

Ultimately, the choice boils down to individual preference, the nature of the event, and what makes you feel both comfortable and elegant.

Renting a dress vs. buying a dress: which is better?

Choosing dress hire in Sydney through The Volte is both economical and green compared to buying a dress outright. It lets you indulge in an ever-evolving trove of high-end designs without denting your savings. Plus, our approach fosters sustainable fashion, minimising waste and its toll on the environment.

Customer Success Stories

Vienna Marie

Sydney, NSW

Go-to designer: Acler, Rat and Boa, Bec and Bridge

Vienna has been a borrower on The Volte for two years, she loves exploring new pieces and designers with bold colours, patterns and intricate pieces that she wouldn’t usually purchase. She is also an advocate for sustainable practices in the fashion industry and spreading awareness to reduce wastage. 

“I absolutely love the variety that the Volte has. Having accessibility to amazing designers and outfits was what really drew me in.”

Melissa McIntosh

Go-to designer: Zimmermann, Aje

Popular hires: 

Sir the Label Aries Dress

Camilla & Marc Cypress Dress

Scanlan Theodore Italian Watercolour Dress

Melissa first started lending on the Volte as a way to help her pay for the pieces she loved, due to her expensive taste. She has been a lender on the Volte for five/six years now and has turned her side hustle into a business catering a range of styles for borrowers - from wedding guest dresses to casual lunch pieces. 

“After reading an article I realised how much of an impact fashion has on the environment & I wanted to do more. I now tell all my friends to either hire pieces for events that they’ll only wear once, or to list their garments for hire that they buy so that it prevents others from buying & only wearing a piece once.”
