There’s a new dress hire boutique you need to know about

Adelaide ladies, we’ve got some exciting news for you. A new dress hire boutique, 808 Threads, has just launched, stocking sizes 12-20 to help girls of all shapes and sizes slay at their next event.

With a collection of 40 gorgeous dresses from Elle Zeitoune, Bariano, Atmos&Here and Hope & Harvest available for hire through their shop in Manningham, there’s loads of variety for girls with all tastes.

808 Threads was born through the frustration Director Alexia Frangos felt when trying to find outfits to hire for formal events.

“I couldn’t find anything in my size at these hire boutiques and became frustrated, I wanted to wear a gorgeous dress to an event without the hefty price tag,”

“I felt that I had to lose weight to fit into a nice garment and I didn’t make the cut, I felt I wasn’t good enough to wear these clothes.” Said Alexia.

Sick of the lack of diversity, Alexia spoke to her would-be business partners and and four weeks later had her own dress hire boutique up and running.

One of 808 Threads’ priorities is to encourage women of all shapes to express their beauty and confidence through fashion.

“Body positivity is a huge priority and we want to help women empower one another instead of tearing each other down.” Said Alexia.

If you’re a curvy girl on the hunt for your next banging party outfit, you can view 808 Threads’ full stocklist on their website, and head to their Instagram and Facebook for styling inspo. Appointments for in-store visits can be made by contacting Alexia through email at
