At ‘Just Pleats’ we specialise in hiring out vintage and modern perma-pleated frocks and gowns, mainly from the 50’s 60’s and 70’s.Our collection may be modest in size when compared to some costume hire companies, but we doubt if you will find a finer and more varied collection of pleated garments for rental anywhere. We can also supply accessories such as period belts, petticoats, hooped crinolines, capelets, purses, tiaras, parasols, hats, opera gloves etc.

 Notwithstanding, some other items end up in the collection from time to time, such as vintage skirts, rock n’ roll outfits, Hippy and full-length 70’s flowery gowns, so it is always an idea to ask in case we have what you need. We even have a pair of vintage pleated wedding gowns, one from the 1960s and one from the 1970s, plus a pale rose-coloured lacey wedding dress from the late 60’s with it’s very straight ‘tube’ lines complete with original detatchable train.

Most recently since the change of management, we are now adding garments from the 1970s up to the present day, as well as a range of modern wedding dresses for hire at truly budget prices.
