I wouldn’t use the moth repellent around your dress, but it should be fine for a few months. Mine was purchased in December and has been in the closet since then, with short outings (to try on, or a few weeks being altered). I even keep mine out of the bag and just have a clean sheet over it so FH doesn’t see it, but I didn’t want to cram it back into the bag after it was steamed. Unless you have a prior problem with moths, I wouldn’t spend the money on a wardrobe. It should be fine. 🙂

My dress is in a breathable garment bag in our closet.  It’s been there since July and it’s fine. I’ve taken it out a couple times and it seems the same to me. I think your dress will be fine in the closet.

Mine is in my parents guest bedroom laying out on a bed wrapped in a sheet.

Im not sure if thats the best method, but it has worked so far! 😀

Mine just hung in a spare closet in its plastic bag for 11 months.

I mean, its the same as any other garment, right? So I feel like if you don’t typically have a moth issue with your clothes, no need to worry about it too much.

Mines is probably going to just hang in a closet with the rest of my clothes.
