I think I've mentioned that I've been buying vintage Wedding dresses to restore and offer in my Etsy Shop but while I've been doing this, I ran into the huge problem of ironing them. Using my domestic iron proved useless and much too time consuming so I felt it was time I invested in a garment steamer!! I did plenty of research and found it quite overwhelming but I kept coming across Fridja which amongst all the chunky, grey steamers, stayed at the front of my mind. It looked like the Apple of garment steamers, and as I have always been in a Creative field, I naturally preferred the one that had aesthetic appeal. I had of course also read great reviews and it seemed to be easy-to-use...so it wasn't all about the 'front cover'! The cost price (on Amazon.co.uk) was £107.99 which I thought was a good price for something my family could also use, and often.
It was super easy to assemble and I managed to get it up and running within 5 minutes of taking it out the box! Then the real test came, steaming a wedding dress! I chose the one with the most creases and set to work with steaming it. It only took under a minute for the steam to form and I was pretty blown away at how quickly the creases disappeared! Just look at my 'before' and 'after' photos which happened in about 10 seconds of steaming! I am over-the-moon with my purchase, I just wish that I didn't wait so long to get one! My mother has even been using this over our domestic iron as she doesn't even need to get the ironing board out! Highly recommended!!
