The home try-on guide

When your wedding dress arrives from Sofia Rein, your home becomes the bridal boutique. 
Follow our helpful steps to prepare for your dream comes true!

STEP ONE: GET READY

  • Ask your trusted friend to accompany you.
  • Choose a place with good, flattering lighting.
  • To protect your dress lay a clean bedsheet on the floor.
  • Keep any liquids and fur material away from the dress.

STEP TWO: PREPARE YOURSELF

  • Have a shower before you try on the gown! Have a fresh face and hair.
  • Put on nude, seamless underwear and a pair of shoes similar in height to what you plan on wearing on your wedding day.
  • Remove any jewelry to not snag the dress.

STEP THREE: put on THE GOWN

• If the gown has a back zipper, step into it; if the gown has a side zipper, pull it on overhead.
• If there is a hook eye close it before zipping the gown.
• Ask your friend to zip the gown!
Note: If the gown isn’t quite aisle-ready don’t get upset. With a magic help of tailor in your city finally it will be the perfect fit for you so you’ll be ready to say, “I do!”

#SofiaReinwedding STEP FOUR: TAILOR IT

• Sometimes the gown needs some common alterations like hemming, strap shortening, adding bust support, and nipping in the waist.
• If you don’t have a trusted tailor, you can ask your friends and family for recommendations.

STEP FIVE: STORAGE your gown

• We recommend you to store the gown in a dark, dry space like the back of your closet.
• To relieve any pressure on the straps you should use garment loops.
• To protect your gown cover it in a natural fabric; we recommend to use a clean cotton bedsheet!

STEP SIX: That DAY

• Never iron your gown, just steam it. If you are not sure how to do that, call a dry cleaner who specializes in bridal to help you.
• Hang the gown to get rid of any extra wrinkles.
• Have your friends help you zip and button the gown.

STEP SEVEN: SHARE the dream

• Share your photos and add a review to help future bride to choose their dream gown.
