1. Easy accessibility. Many women want to admire their treasured wedding gowns and verify that they were cleaned to their satisfaction.
2. Inspection is critical to heirloom care. Periodic inspection ensures that the wedding gown does not develop permanent damage from oxidizing stains or other problems.
3. The wedding gowns can now be hung instead of boxed. They can be kept at arms length and not boxed up never to be seen again. Hanging the gown protects fabric to weaken where it is folded.
4. With Museum Method preservation, the cotton bag protects the gown from dust and light, but actually encourages the gown to “breathe.” Many box preservations strive to remove oxygen from the wedding gown storage box with the intent of keeping the gown from oxygen induced yellowing, however the sealing promotes mold and mildew.
