DRESSEDUP Basics: How it works

  • How long can I borrow a garment?

    Rental is 4 days (default) or 8 days. Please choose the date you require the dress delivered. We recommend choosing a date at least a couple of days before your event. If you require the dress for a period longer than 8 days, let us know and we can provide a quote on a extended hire period.
  • What are 'My Hearts'?

    If you see a dress or accessory that you love and you want to add to your wishlist just click the "heart" in the top corner of the item and it will save to your profile. You can filter by your "loves" through the refine search tool or by clicking "my loves" on the header bar, which will bring up all the items you have clicked the "heart" on.
  • When will my order be delivered?

    Your order is shipped via Australia Post (or courier by request). Deliveries are made between 8:30am and 6:00pm on the day you have requested delivery. If you are unavailable to sign for your order it will be taken back to the post office or depot for collection. Your hire period starts when first attempted delivery is recorded.
