Rent the Runway Review

I’m assuming by now that most have you have heard of Rent the Runway.  If not, it is a website where you can rent a designer dress for an event.  If you are like me and hate wearing the same dress multiple times, this could be a great option for you.  For over a year now, I had always wanted to try it but was nervous about my dress not fitting and being left with nothing to wear the day before the event.

However, at the beginning of July I logged onto the website and they had a promotional offer to give you 50% off your entire order.  I figured if I was going to try it, that should be the time.  I picked out my main dress and read other people’s reviews about what sizes to order.  They do send you two sizes of the same dress, which is included in the price.  You can also get a back-up dress in one size for $25, which luckily I decided to do.

So when my package arrived, I immediately tried on the dresses, and yeah, my worst fear was realized…neither size of my first choice dress fit….I definitely needed to go up another size.  Thankfully, my second dress ended up fitting me almost perfectly, it was just slightly tight around the waist, but nothing unbearable.

Would I use Rent the Runway again?  Possibly, if I am feeling brave and there is a promo code.  I would just make sure I had a back-up dress of my own in case of neither dresses worked out.  The dresses did arrive in perfect, clean, wrinkle free condition.  Also, if neither dress fits and you contact them immediatley and send them back, you only have to pay for the cost of shipping, not the entire rental.

Have any of you ever tried Rent the Runway?  If not, would you?
