I purchased a pre-owned dress which arrived today (yay!). The dress has been dry-cleaned and came packaged in those thin plastic dryclerning bags with a cardboard bust, which the dress is saftey pinned to (the dress is strapless and the saftey pins are positioned at the seam under the arms). It looks like it is hung this way because the loops that would normally be used to hange the dress have been cut out. I know that I should store the dress in a sheet or muslin bag instead of the plastic, but should I keep it safety-pinned pinned to the cardboard? It isn’t a terribly heavy dress, but I’m afraid over time that the saftey-pins or the stress of the weight will damage the dress. Any suggestions or experience with this?
