Recommendations for a fabric steamer?

Hi all! I need to get wrinkles out of my chiffon dress, but steaming in the bathroom seems not to be working (or working REALLY slowly). Have any of you used a fabric steamer? Suggestions on what & where to buy? TIA!

    At Target or Walmart..A basic steamer will work great. Black and Decker, Hamilton Beach, etc

    Don’t do it too close! If you have another chiffon dress or top, try the new steamer on it first. This will allow you to practice without possibly damaging the wedding dress. Even after trying on the other dress, try on the wedding dress where it’s not too visible if something goes wrong.

    I bought my steamer from Bed Bath and Beyond — nothing too fancy. It worked just fine.

    I agree with Michelle. I got mine at target and it wasn’t too expensive and works perfectly fine

    Ended up buying one lastnight and I'm super happy with how well it worked! The dresses are finished, my cape will need another round (it was packed ultra tight and the creases are really deep)

    I'm getting a steamer for my linens. Fold creases irritate me so much.

    I overfill it the 1st time, but once I fixed that, it really was exactly what I needed!
