Ugh i got mine in 3 days ago and it looked like crap from being folded in the package. Needless to say i was not thrilled about the veil itself by apperance. You can take it to your local cleaners and they will steam it for you or you can do it yourself if you have a steam machine. Me your gonna laugh but i hung mine on the cupboard above the stove with a pot of boiling water under it. It worked and it was free. Caution to be very careful not to drop or burn it tho..lol i should also add mine is elbow sized so i didnt even come close to the stove.

Oh i forgot to add i also misted it lightly with a spray bottle filled with water before doing all the other jazz. You can get very creative when wanting to save money like me 🙂

I got mine in like, November. Hung it up in the bathroom and let the shower steam it out for about a month, LoL! You can put it on LOW heat in a dryer. Too high and you might melt some of it. How about a closet steamer? I bet a dry cleaners could do it for a few bucks if you didn’t want to hassle with it. After mine flattened out, I layed it out on the bed and haven’t touched it. Tulle’s tricky.

do you have a back towel rack in your shower? On the opposite end of where the head is? I’d hang it up and turn the shower on and let it hit the floor and let it soften that way.

Yeah, i basically steamed mine out by hanging it up for a couple of weeks in a bathroom I used regularly and then hung it up in a closet for a few months. It’s fine now!
