Why should I rent a dress and not buy it?

There are many advantages to hiring a dress rather than buying one. One of the most obvious ones is that it can save you money. If you are going to a special event and want to look your best, you can hire a glamorous designer dress for a fraction of the cost of buying it brand new. If you rent a dress it allows you to experiment with different styles, colours and designs rather than wearing the same dress over and over again. Trends can also change very quickly, so if you rent a dress then you won’t then get stuck with expensive clothes in your wardrobe that are no longer in fashion. Hiring is also great forbridesmaid dresses or wedding dress hire when you are likely to only want to wear your dress once.

Hiring dresses instead of buying them can also be better for the environment as it leads to less waste. In our quest to keep up-to-date and always have the latest fashion, much-unwanted clothing is ending up in landfill each year and this hurts the environment. If we extend the life of a garment we can reduce our environmental footprint. Rather than buying a dress you are only going to wear a handful of times, you can rent a dress and the life of that dress will then be extended. In our disposable world, it is important to consider more sustainable approaches to fashion. Even some of the celebrities, where the price wouldn’t be such an issue, are renting clothes instead of buying them. As well as adding fewer dresses to landfill, if fewer people are buying clothes it will eventually lessen the demand for products which would have a positive impact on the environment. Sustainable living is becoming more of a priority in the fashion industry.

Another advantage of renting a dress is that it saves on closet space. Having a decluttered wardrobe helps you to be more organised and be able to more easily find what you are looking for. Spending too much money on clothes can also lead to feelings of guilt. Renting clothes is the guilt-free way to shop! Renting dresses can also be a good option for those times when you are not your normal dress size, such as when you’ve just had a baby or are pregnant. At the Volte, you can rent stylish maternity clothes at very affordable prices. With dresses ranging from size 2 to plus size as well as maternity, we cater for women of all shapes and sizes.

Renting a dress also prevents panic buying. If you’ve only got a few days to get an outfit together you can sometimes end up buying something expensive that you’ll never wear again. If you rent a dress, you can avoid this problem. Hiring dresses instead of buying them also allows you to try clothes you wouldn’t normally wear to see what suits you and what you feel comfortable in. It also allows you to wear high-end fashion from luxury designers that you couldn’t normally afford.

Hiring dresses can be a great option if you live outside the major cities or in rural areas where you have less access to high-end fashion outlets. At the Volte, we deliver our designer clothes Australia-wide. With our door-to-door service, by hiring a dress you get the VIP treatment. In most cases you won’t even need to wash the dress when returning it as the cost of cleaning is included in the hire price and is taken care of by the lender. And, if you absolutely love the dress and decide you don’t want to part with it, in some cases you can even buy the dress from the lender.
