Welcome to Worn Only Once – the simple way to search hundreds of wedding and formal dresses (or suits) from the comfort of your own home.
Where to start? Simple. Do you have an idea of what type and style of garment you are looking for; or have you perhaps found the perfect one in the shops but hope to find it for sale at a preloved price? Our search tools will help you to find a list of garments that suit your criteria.
Take your time to look at the listings, making sure you read all information carefully. If you are interested in a garment, contact the seller via our easy to use contact form on the bottom of the listing.
You may have questions for the seller, such as how the item has been kept, when it was purchased, whether the price is negotiable or whether authenticity can be proven through provision of a receipt or the garment label. The seller will respond to you directly, and based on your satisfaction with their response you can arrange to view the garment. It’s also worth checking the seller’s accepted payment methods (this will be displayed as part of the listing).
We recommend taking someone with you to assist with trying and fitting. Be conscious of taking care when trying on the garment to avoid any damage to fabric or detailing. For the ladies: it’s best to remove your jewellery, and consider taking a scarf to cover your face to avoid transfer of makeup onto the garment.
If you decide to proceed with purchasing the garment, make arrangement for payment and also shipping if required. While Worn Only Once is not responsible for transactions, we do recommend using PayPal as it offers some buyer protection.
