Who here has stared at dresses by their favorite designer and wished that for just one night they would love to wear something from the line? Rent The Runwayis a site that gives you the opportunity to wear your dream dress for five to six days. The site has 25,000 dresses from 150 designers at 90% off retail and they make it really easy for you to shop.
How Rent The Runway Works
First, you have to sign up to use the service. It’s free and it takes a minute or two. There are multiple ways to shop:
- You can shop by designer.
- Shop by occasion.
- You can enter your age range, bust size and normal dress size. This option will bring up images of women with body types similar to yours wearing dresses that should flatter your figure.
- You can narrow down the filter by entering the price range, size, color or style that you are interested in.
- Work with one of their stylists to find a dress that you love.
All of the images include information such as the designer name and the original price as well as the price that you can rent the dress for.
Once you’ve selected the dress that you want to rent, you head over to check out. Since the people at the company want you to be completely satisfied with your rental they will send you not only your regular size but one more size free of charge. This way if the dress doesn’t fit, you have a backup and won’t have to go into a state of panic at the last second.
When your time is up and you have to return the dress, simply put it in the pre-paid envelops and drop it off in any United States Postal Service blue mailbox. Don’t worry about the dry cleaning-they’ll take care of it.

Do They Offer Anything Besides Dresses?
A great dress will need to be accessorized so they do offer jewelry, shoes, wraps and bags. For those of us who need some extra support, they also have lingerie, shapewear and tights.
If you have a lot of occasions to attend or like to wear something new and different all of the time or are in the market to rent a designer dress, be sure to check them out. You’ll be amazed at all of the options that they give you.
