I have officially scoured Rent the Runway for the best dress rental options for the season!
A key take-away from my first rental experience was to read reviews thoroughly and look at all customer photos. The 5 star review process seems to be a good early predictor of success, so most of my choices linked have 4 star reviews or greater (unless the item doesn’t have reviews because it’s newly listed to the site)!
My first rental was the Teal Elliatt Serpentine Dress which I LOVED and received so many compliments on! Logistically everything went off without a hitch – the dresses were sent directly to our hotel in San Diego, I picked the size that was more comfortable, and after wearing shipped them off. My favorite part is that you automatically get two sizes and can decide which one fits best. Whenever I shop online I often order two sizes to make sure I get the fit I want, but that concept is already covered in the base case with RTR.
Special occasion or statement clothing, handbags, and jewelry can be quite the splurge for a limited life-cycle of wear, so I’m predicting I use Rent the Runway on numerous upcoming occasions. They have amazing brands that I would never be able purchase so you get to go all out on a look without the giant investment, which is pure genius.
I hope this smaller selection is less over-whelming than sifting through the entire rental website and saves you some dolla bills in the near future!
