Take it out of the plastic bag! It will yellow because it can’t breathe. Get a breathable bag

Oh wow I guess I should consider a breathable bag because mine is still in the bag I recieved from the bridal shop.

My mom has it in her closet hiding it from the Fiance

my wedding dress is actually Ivory so it shouldn’t get much darker just from being in a plastic bag…well I hope

I just bought the breathable bag from Alfred Angelo, it cost less than 10 bucks.

Mine is in a breathable bag provided by the salon.  I didnt know that plastic bags would turn it yellow though… Good to know!

I only found out that most plastics give off damaging fumes that promote yellowing when I was researching how to store my wedding dress.

My Enzoani dress came with a breathable, cloth-like bag.  My bridal consultant said that it is fine to leave it in this bag.

Mine is in a breathable bag as well and because it has a full skirt my salon suggested that I take it out of the bag to keep it’s fullness, fluff it up and sotre it somewhere out of the light
