Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for storing those priceless items. I bought 2 large and three small archival garment boxes. and am going to order more. They are perfect for storing those priceless items like my mothers wedding dress and veil. June 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits the Bill I purchased the archival underbed Garment Storage Box as a container for my nearly 40 year old wedding gown. I'm very pleased with the box. It comes with archival quality tissue as well. The box is sturdy and very roomy. April 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good for wedding dress storage My daughters wedding dress and cathedral veil fit well in the box. I did buy extra tissue but may not have needed but felt more the better? Easy to assemble. Fits under the bed just fine. Can't tell you if it prevents yellowing or not but I thought worth the try. Had a owner of a wedding dress consignment shop tell me not to buy the 250$ preservation kit from cleaners, said about 50% of dresses that come in one of those is yellow. This is a much cheaper option. Did have the dress professionally cleaned first. Would give 5 stars if I knew for sure no yellowing. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Archival Garment Storage Box great sturdy boxes for storing our hand quilted quilts. also great for putting our quilts that were made for family on special occasions so they can keep there quilt fresh for years to come when not being used . June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great solution! My wedding dress had been stored in a HUGE box that didn't fit anywhere. Because it was not a big, poufy ballgown style, it fit beautifully in this size box. The box was easy to assemble and included plenty of acid-free tissue. I am happy that my dress is protected, and that I am able to store it in a box a quarter the size of the drycleaner's box. VERY pleased with this purchase! March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase The archival garment storage box is perfect for storing my children's baby clothes. I saved my favorite things from when they were small and they are protected in this wonderful box. If fits perfectly on the shelf in the closet. I liked it so much, I am going to buy more for other keepsakes. April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Important to me Many years ago my great grandmother made two dresses for my mother. They are works of art. Completely made by hand, with tiny little stitches and intricate detailing. 48 years ago, I hand made my daughters christening gown, complete with slip and bonnet. Several years later I hand knit my son's christening suit. I was going to give these precious memories away, I had no idea how to store them properly. Then I saw this box while looking for something else at the Container Store. My precious memories are now packed carefully away so that my great grand children might appreciate them. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by a huge necessity I bought this box to correctly store a very fragile set of quilting pieces that date back to the 1870's! I KNEW the best place to find it would be the Container Store! They always have everything I need!. In addition I bought a smaller box and the acid free paper to store a very special ring pillow that I'm creating for a bridge. It will be a new treasure, and stored correctly from its beginning! March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Heirloom Christening Gowns I wanted to preserve my children's Christening gowns since they were handmade by my mom. This box is perfect for it! February 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Size Box... Larger box than I thot, but can put some other items in . Can't tell you about how box/tissue haven't had it long enough. This is a wonderful item to preserve things that can't be washed/dry cleaned.. At least it makes me feel like I'm doing something good w/my Grandmother's dancing gown (circa 1920's) February 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wise purchase After 50 years, I decided I should have something in which to store my wedding dress - not my cedar chest! I ordered this box, which came just before Christmas (a surprise). I also ordered the extra acid-free paper which was recommended in the product description, but probably wouldn't have needed it. A good purchase -- and it does fit under the bed. December 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Item The garment box was as described. Sturdy box and comes with acid free paper for garment protection. A bit pricey but comparative to other merchants. November 29, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad that it includes the acid free tissue. Box will hold christening gown and vintage first communion dress and veil. May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed I was looking for something to store all the American Girl dolls and their clothing and this was perfect! It was quite large and came with enough very large pieces of tissue paper for wrapping everything. Just what I needed! March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest Storage Idea I used the Archival Garment Storage Boxes with the acid free tissue paper to store my custom made silk drapes!!!!! i only had to fold them once using tissue paper in between the folds and on top. I am confident that they will remain in perfect condition until I need them again. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, sturdy box I bought the small archival box to store my wedding veil. It was more spacious than I anticipated, which is great because I was able to fold the veil with fewer folds. The box came with plenty of tissue paper. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are sturdy boxes that seem to keep items in good condition. I have had clothing in mine for almost 5 years and the clothes look like they did when I first bought the boxes. March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by dress storage I got this to store a bridesmaid dress that I want to keep and was tired of it hanging in the closet. It fits well and seems great. February 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Purchased this product to store some family heirlooms. Having worked in the museum industry, I was looking for something that would be safe for textiles as well as paper products. These boxes have ample room to nicely and securely, but not too tightly wrap and protect my items. Note - the boxes that I bought come with acid free tissue paper which I was not aware of. Check to see if there is tissue included in the box you are buying before buying the separate package of acid-free tissue. The good thing about the extra tissue package is that the sheets of paper are HUGE! February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by archival box this is a great big box for my precious baby girl clothes for her in the future . February 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I was looking for , shipping was prompt and the box was simple to assemble January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Kimono Storage I had such a difficult time finding a good acid-free box that was the right size for storing my antique kimono, and I'm so glad that I eventually found this one! It's just the right size! The box is also high quality and very sturdy, and the tissue paper it comes with is perfect for wrapping the kimono to keep the colors from bleeding. I will definitely be ordering more of these in the future! November 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for those special garments I bought two of these boxes. One to store my daughters First Communion gown and veil and the other to store a family heirloom: 100+year old christening gown. They are perfect! My only suggestion would be to include a label for the boxes to easily identify the contents. April 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Storage Boxes I purchased two of the medium sized boxes, and while they are a little larger than I expected, they are exactly what I needed to store my daughter's cherished baby items. April 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by sturdy boxes that really fit the bill! I bought a few of these boxes, not for garments but for photo albums, loose large and smaller photos and they really organized a huge problem into three neat, safe boxes. Until I can organize these photos I've worried that they were deteriorating where we had them. Now that they are all in these acid free boxes with tissue between layers I don't worry at all. I know they are safe until I can get to them, and then I'll have lots of room to store the finished albums! thank you Container Store! April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by About time! So glad someone finally came to the conclusion that this would be a good thing! Perfect for Christening outfits, special clothing of adults, etc. Love it! April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Archival Storage Box I purchased several of these and they are perfect - very sturdy. April 27, 2012
