What is Rent the Runway?
Rent the Runway is a clothing rental company which has brick & mortar stores and a huge online presence. I am a Rent the Runway Ambassador and first joined the service in September 2017. Use my Rent the Runway Unlimited code LORNARTR to get $100 off your first month of Rent the Runway throughout February. I will have a new discount for sign ups every month!
What is Rent the Runway Unlimited?
The Rent the Runway Unlimited plan allows you to rent 4 pieces at a time. You can return one or all these pieces the following day, week or month and pick out a new piece once you return one of your items. Delivery to your home, office or your local store is free. Rent the Runway offers all clothing such as dresses, tops, jackets, jeans, sweaters, ball gowns, cocktail dresses, and much much more. Rent the Runway also has jewelry and an amazing selection of handbags and purses available to rent.
Why I joined Rent the Runway Unlimited
I was trying to find a dress for a friend’s wedding and all the dresses I liked in stores were $400-$600 to purchase which I thought was way too much for a dress that I would enjoy wearing at most 3 times. After that, it loses its newness and excitement for me. I looked into Rent the Runway Unlimited and saw that I could rent 4 items for $130 per month at that time. This allowed me to rent a dress for the wedding day, a dress for the day after and 2 purses for $130 along with having more options throughout the month after I returned the items. I was saving I told myself!
What are the benefits of Rent the Runway Unlimited?
There are so many benefits of Rent the Runway Unlimited. I have listed some of my favorite benefits of the Rent the Runway Unlimited plan:
A MASSIVE wardrobe of clothes to choose from at Rent the Runway – there is so much to choose from, you could never possibly rent everything that you like as there is such a wide variety. The app is amazing in that you can filter by size, color, type, date available for rent and more.
Less spending on clothes especially for weddings & special occasions. For me, Rent the Runway Unlimited has really saved me money when I need a dress for a fancy occasion as it is much cheaper to subscribe for a month rather than buy the dresses that I love. With code RTRLORNA, you can save on your subscription. I feel like I constantly have new clothes so there is limited need to buy.
Free shipping to your home, office or local store – within days you can have your items. It is faster to ship to the store sometimes. You receive a handy carrier bag to return the clothes back in or you can drop at lots of places throughout bigger cities.
New pieces added all the time to the Rent the Runway closet – every Saturday on the app lots of new items drop making your Rent the Runway Unlimited Wardrobe grow.
Helping the environment – by buying less and having more people wear the garments, it is less fast fashion and more wears per item
Dry cleaning is included – say hello to reduced laundry as you can wear the item and send it back. Rent the Runway take care of dry cleaning.
Wear items that you normally wouldn’t buy – some of the items I rent are really expensive trend items e.g. furry blue jacket that I would wear a couple of times and then never wear again. By using Rent the Runway, I get to enjoy this piece without investing lots in the item. I can return the item when I am ready to give it back.
Return as often as you want – Rent the Runway Unlimited is…. Unlimited. As it sounds, you can return your items as many times as you want during the month. If you love a winter jacket or a Diane Von Furstenberg bag and want to keep it for one day, one week or one month, the choice is yours.
Pause when you want – If you are traveling and want to pause your Rent the Runway subscription, you can easily do that and join when you return or when you feel like you would get most from the service.
Visit the showrooms or through the app – the showrooms are great for trying on items if there is a showroom near you. You can rent clothes at the store, bring back clothes and browse online.
Use the sizing guide – on the app, based on certain brands that you have rented before, the app will let you know which size they recommend in the piece that you want to rent. As brands often range in size, this is so helpful.
See images & reviews of the item on other Rent the Runway members – Rent the Runway customers are so good for uploading photos of them wearing the piece and noting whether the fit was in line with their usual size along with any other notable comments
If you really love an item, you can buy it at a discounted price
Add an extra item or two when needed for an additional monthly cost
Gifts – in the summer, I received a beautiful summer beach towel, another time I received a reusable large shopping bag. From time to time, there are surprises in store for Rent the Runway Unlimited members.
