Heavy satin is a common choice for prom dresses, wedding dresses and ballgowns due to its stiffness and its luster, but like any fabric, it can wrinkle. While dry cleaning can take the wrinkles out of heavy satin, sometimes it is important to straighten the fabric while you are on the go and in a hurry.

Be very careful about water near satin. While most satin is made from polyester or acetate, which repels water, a silk satin may absorb water, which removes the glossy natural coating of the silk.
Store your heavy satin garments in garment bags that can be hung rather than in boxes or suitcases to prevent the need for extensive ironing.
