Hello lovelies. I must apologise for my absence! I have finally finished my dissertation and at the end of May I managed to get myself a job in the most amazing School. So as of September I shall be an official NQT! So I now have lots of time to write some posts for you lovelies.
Thursday night was my Graduation Ball at the Mercure Hotel in Sheffield. I was kindly contacted by Wish Want Wear who offer designer dress hire in the UK. I Instantly knew I wanted a Hervé Léger dress and found the most gorgeous purple strapless bandage dress…

So I picked the Hervé Léger Purple Strapless Bandage Dress, which you can rent in a size 6 or 8. There are so many other gorgeous dresses to choose from though for a range of occasions. Even though I really wanted a Herve dress it was still a tricky decision. So something I was worried about was the sizing of the dress, but Wish Want Wear have a really accurate size guide and they explain the fit of the dress and even what underwear you should wear! How Perfect! Also if your dress doesn’t fit they refund dress hire for unworn pieces, so not to worry. You can even order a back up size too.
The dress itself was gorgeous. As soon as I opened it I was in love. It’s such a thick high quality fabric which fits like a glove and conceals any lumps or bumps. The bust area also has like another fastening which pulls the dress in under the bust which is such a good idea as it gives you the perfect hour glass shape. I seriously love these dresses and would definitely rent another.
Wish Want Wear have brilliant customer relations and I feel they really understand a girls needs when they see a dress they love. Their dresses are sent by couriers who text you a time slot, so you’re not hanging around all day. I was shocked how well the dress was packaged too, it came in a huge box so your dress is in no way creased or crumpled complete with the hanger and protective packaging. Wish Want Wear give you the option of renting for 4 days or 8 days. They also give you a free postage bag so you can ship your dress back to them for free! You don’t have to deal with the dry cleaning either for any minor spillages. I really cannot find a fault with this company they even rent out accessories so you have your full outfit covered!
