There are times when you’re invited to a special event and you panic. As curvy girls we know that even though things are changing, it’s still quite the challenge to find cocktail or black-tie look with a quick turn-around. If you’re looking for elegant and chic but might not have the money and/or time to find a show stopping outfit, consider renting from RentTheRunway.com.
I was very excited and impressed by the selections in their curvy category. Far beyond caftans and the usual “hide your curves” pieces, there is a nice selection of fabrics, silhouettes and sparkle.
Items can be rented from 4 day or 8 day increments and there are a lot of options. You can find all you need from head to toe including designer items, seasonal collections, special event categories and even by site user photos. It’s very refreshing that sites likes these are including curvy styles in their collections.
Here’s the how to from the site:
1. FIND IT: Search our collection of dresses and accessories for your rental date (we recommend 1–2 days before your event), then filter by designer, price, length — even style — to narrow down your favorites.
2. BOOK IT: Once you’ve selected your items, book for a 4-day or 8-day rental period. We also offer all the essential extras like Spanx and Fashion Tape.
3. WEAR IT: Your order will arrive by 8PM on your delivery date via UPS (or by courier in NYC). Time to slip it on and shine!
4: RETURN IT: After your night out, send back your items in the easy pre-paid envelope provided — we’ll take care of the dry cleaning. Don’t forget to upload a photo and review to Our Runway.
