@Brittanyrio:  I’m sorry I can’t be of any help to you. Mine’s currently hanging in my folk’s spare closet. Cause really, if I had it here, I’d be wearing all the time.

I had mine hanging in a garment bag in our hallway closet for 5 months before I got it altered. I took it out about once or twice a month to let it breathe (as I’ve read on here) and just laid it on the bed (instructing FI to not go into the room OR ELSE). It was perfect when I took it to get altered.

I hung mine in the closet on the hanger it came on and in a garment bag. It only hung from april to june, though, and it was totally fine. I even folded it up (in the garment bag) and crammed it into a overhead compartment in the plane.

I had mine hangning in a closet in a garment bag for a good 12 months before alterations. I took it out every once in awhile to just look at it but other than that it stayed in the closet.

Mine is also hanging up in a garment bag… except for tonight when I was trying it on with the new bra I bought. I may have danced about a bit. Innocent
