I mentioned previously that I was going to be renting from Rent the Runway for J's ring ceremony. And I did! So now it's time I share my results! Below you will see the dress I rented. I had a $25 off code for it being my first rental.
You can find the perfect dress for you by searching through reviews of people with the same measurements as you! This is genius! I could find people with the exact same body type and size as me and see dresses they loved that fit them well! I found this dress by doing that. Some other girls my size have previously rented this dress and raved about it and their pictures they included in the reviews were stunning! And this dress on it's own is just gorgeous! Lace all the way down and a perfect navy blue! Needless to say, I fell in love with it.
I did a four day rental. So it came in the day before the event. Plenty of time for what I needed! Oh! And in case you didn't know, they send you two dress sizes! So I got the 4 because that's my size, and they sent me a 4 and a 6 just in case this dress was sized small. That's fantastic! I would hate to rent a dress only to try it on and it doesn't fit and I'm out of luck for something to wear. They also already include a package to send the dress back that already has a shipping label. So for the return all you have to do is put the dresses in the envelope and take it to a UPS or UPS drop box. Because my dress return date was on a Sunday and UPS is closed then I slipped it into a drop box. The most pain free experience ever!
I got compliment after compliment on this dress! It was perfect! It was perfect for the occasion and the reviews I read were truthful! And the ease of the process was killer! I will certainly be renting from them again in the future! Heck, I may never buy a formal dress again!
I can't wait for my next opportunity to rent from Rent The Runway! 5 out of 5 starts for both the experience and the dress! You might want to check them out for your next formal event.
They also rent accessories! In fact they have an accessories service that's just like netflix! You pick three and they send them to you and when you send one back they send you the next one and it's sooo cool! I just can't afford it right now. But maybe in the future!
