I have always dreamed of wearing an Herve Leger gown, but with a retail price tag over $1500, not even eBay was going to make that happen. Enter Rent The Runway. I was able to rent this gorgeous red Herve Leger dress for $150. Plus, I got $25 off because it was my first time renting so it was really only $125. Worried about whether it is going to fit or not? Enter their awesome review and gallery section. Real women have posted pictures of themselves in the dresses. Included in the descriptions are their height, weight, typical size worn, and comments. I know it can be scary to post those stats, but in the spirit of giving back, I just went in and shared my own review to help others. Another nice thing is that they
Overall, I LOVED the whole experience. It felt like a dream to wear a dress I normally cannot afford. I even convinced 3 of my coworkers to do it as well. Everyone looked fantastic. And it was so simple to return. They give you a pre-paid envelope, and you just drop it in the mail. I will definitely do this again. It makes so much sense because you never wear these dresses more than once or twice anyways, and I spent less than I normally would if I went and purchased a dress. Of note as well, my rental price was on the high end. Most of the dresses are only $75. It is definitely a WIN-WIN, if you ask me.
Here is a picture from our holiday party. My manager rented her dress as well. I think it looks fantastic! So what do you think? Have you rented a dress before? Would you in the future?
