Home » Reviews » Designer Dress Hire from Wish Want Wear Review

Hey dolls! back with another post and for today’s post I’m going to be reviewing and sharing my experience of using a designer dress hire company; Wish Want Wear. Before I get into the review I thought I’d tell you a little bit about the company itself and what exactly they do and at the end of this post I will be sharing some details on Wish Want Wear’s Student Promotion so if you’re interested in hiring out a designer dress for a special occasion then you should definitely read this post to the end for details.


Who are Wish Want Wear?

Wish Want Wear is the UK’s leading designer dress hire company  that was created by 3 women who loved fashion, trying out the latest trends and who also had a taste for designer clothes. Unfortunately these three ladies’ student budgets didn’t allow them to experiment as much as they would have liked and with their shopping habits going a bit out of control the three of them had a “eureka moment” and realised that wearing designer dresses didn’t have to mean saving up for a million years. On the back of this Wish Want Wear was born; a dress rental company that could let women borrow designer dresses at a fraction of the retail price! Wish Want Wear is based on the “hire a designer bag” concept (famously seen in the Sex & The City movie) which is currently turning into a thriving business model all across the UK and Wish Want Wear is a current leader in the market working directly with designers such as Temperley London, Just Cavalli, M Missoni and Herve Leger to make designer clothes more accessible to fashion followers who want to hire designer clothes and accessories.

Designer Dress Hire Review

That being said, Student Fashion was contacted by the lovely people at Wish Want Wear to collaborate on a project where we would pick a dress of our choice from the lovely Student Style collection and then share our experience with you our lovely readers. I was obviously the guinea pig for this experiment (it’s so hard being me eh? lol) and I browsed their Student Style Collection to find myself the perfect dress for a birthday celebration dinner I was going to be attending. Let me start by saying that it was a very difficult task trying to pick just one dress because their collection was absolutely amazing and filled with all sorts of dresses from floor length gowns, sequined numbers, cocktail dresses and even stylish and sexy jumpsuits all from designers I’ve only ever dreamt of wearing.  This task was made slightly easier by the very interactive website which allows you to type in when your event is, what size dress you usually wear and with a click of a button suitable options are made available to you and each item comes complete with a stylist note and a size and fit guide which tells you a bit about the garment and its materials, a detailed sizing guide and it also gives a brief summary of how the dress is likely to fit across the bust waist and hips. There were also some cool styling tips on how to bring out the best in your dress as well as what events or occasions the dress would be perfect for.

After hours of feeling a little bit like a kid in a candy shop I finally went for the M Missoni Illusion dress which promised a feminine silhouette made out of innovative, stretchy but light weight knit fabric that was going to hug my curves. The dress was right up my street in terms of style, fit and colour and it was appropriate for the event I intended on wearing it to. The ordering process once I had picked my dress was very simple and all I had to do was pick my size, what date I wanted my dress delivered and how long I wanted to hire the dress for out of the two available options; 4 day hire or  8 day hire. Once my order was placed and checked out I received an email confirmation of my order within minutes with details of the dress I ordered and when the dress was to be delivered. I also got additional emails including a FAQ email about the dress hiring process which was great at putting my mind at ease about any concerns I had about the process. I also received an email once my order was shipped and also an email on the day of delivery giving me an hour slot within which my dress would be delivered.

The dress arrived on the date I stipulated and within the time slot I was told it would arrive in which was brilliant because that meant I didn’t have to stay at home all day waiting for the dress to arrive and could do other things before and after my slot. It was delivered by a courier and required a signature and once I  opened the parcel I noticed that the dress came in a protective plastic bag and it even had its own hanger which was handy for storing the dress safely until i had to wear it. The parcel also included a “what did you think?” questionnaire for feedback as well as a returns sticker to put on the parcel once the garment was ready to be returned. The dress itself was just as seen on the website with no nasty surprises and it fit just like the size and fit guide stated it would. The material was a fine heavy knitted fabric that was extremely stretchy but also breatheable and which flattered my figure perfectly! You don’t have to take my word for it though, you can see for yourselves in the pictures below or on my M Missoni lookbook post.





Wish Want Wear definitely delivered on product and on service and I was extremely impressed! I would definitely use this service again and I would also highly recommend using this site to others to hire out a designer dress for special occasions. I especially like their extraordinary selection, their great prices points from as little as £45 and I like that they have a wide range of dresses and jumpsuits for any occasion. It is also very good that customers can book out a dress up to three months in advance of their event which is great and saves from any last minute “I don’t have anything to wear” situations. The dress hire process and returns process is also very easy to use and understand and an added bonus is that customers don’t have to do anything more than wishing, wanting and wearing the dress as the company insures all the garments and takes care of the dry cleaning! Awesome!
