Rent the Runway Review

What made Birthday Ball for me this year was the stunning Badgley Mischka Fifth Avenue Showstopper Dress dress I wore from Rent the Runway. This show stopping dress was a real confidence booster as it made me felt beautiful on the dance floor and won me a lot of compliments. The gown's gold sparkles were glamorous and perfect for the event without being too literal with the whole Great Gatsby theme.

Normally I'm a little hesitant with online purchases because you don't get to try it on until it's shipped. However the site had great recommendations for styling, an honest size and fit section, and great product details. Even better yet is that Rent the Runway allows each guest to add on another size for free just for safe measure.

The tool I relied on the most on the website were the reviews at the bottom. There were 141 reviews from real women wearing the dress (some that even looked better than the model.) The dress looked great on the girls whose age and body type were similar to mine and that's what persuaded me to pick my dress. I definitely recommend this dress for girls on the bustier or hourglass side.

When I received my dress on the day I ordered it to come in. I was afraid at first there might be an issue since Chestertown's post office is a little slow. But it shipped fast and came in a sleek black garment bag that I got to keep, along with a $25 gift certificate to Exhale Spa and a pack of fashion tape that came in a cute little bag. Returning it was also incredibly simple since all I had to do was put it in the prepaid envelope they provided me and drop it off in the mail room on the assigned day.

You may have seen this photo in the last post, but it's the best photo of the dress.
Overall Rent the Runway put a lot of thought into their site and provide a top-notch quality service for the customer. I will definitely be using Rent the Runway's services again in the future (possibly for 26th Company's Dining Out.) You can sign up for Rent the Runway here (or the link on the side bar) for free and checkout all the great dresses they have to offer.
