My first Rent the Runway experience could not have gone better. I am 6'2" with an athletic build and clothes just do not fit me right. Period.
I was a little nervous when I rented this gown. It said it ran long, but as any tall girl can tell you -- most retailer's "long" is just "wrong". Almost all formal wear I have ever owned required alterations, but I decided to put all my eggs in one basket and hope for the best -- with this Rent the Runway dress.
When the gown arrived, I could not get the smile off my face -- it was gorgeous! But then I started feeling anxious -- what about sizing, quality, material, etc? The size 8 fit like a glove. The gown did not look cheap and the material was comfortable enough (for a gown). I did need to use a little toupee tape to keep some of the flowers on the top from drooping, but that was a small price to pay for how this dress made me feel! I felt like a queen in a dream, the belle of the ball, resplendent and radiant in Rent the Runway. The best part, I got to feel and look like a princess all night, outfitted in an extravagant gown, without having to pay an extravagant price.
Will I rent out another dress for a big occasion? Heck yes. Would I recommend Rent the Runway for others -- definitely.
