No changes, but then my dress was extremely simple, so there weren’t any details to damage.

A dear friend had a dress that needed cleaning, and even though she told the people at the drycleaners not to use solvents, they did, and some of the lace came off. She was able to get a seamstress to sew it back on, though, and on the day she looked amazing and you never would have known.

If you use a good, reputable dry cleaner, you shouldn’t have a problem.

I bought a used dress that had been professionally cleaned, preserved and sealed. The fabric seems to be the same as the samples I tried on in stores. There is no beading/lace though.

@maiziekate:  I would. Some stains are initially invisible but appear over time. So if it looks perfect now and isn’t cleaned then it might look stained by the time you wear it. Also the previous owner probably wore it for 8 hours and danced/sweat in it. Its really a good idea to get it cleaned.
