Rent the Runway Lets You "Borrow" Designer Dresses for Prom!

Prom Dress Spenderella

Prom season is here and it's time to live out your Cinderella fantasies!  Rent the Runway is an amazing site (and your new fairy godmother) that has a ton of great prom dresses available to rent for the night at 90 percent off! We swear this is real and not a hoax!

Rent the Runway was founded by two women (both named Jennifer) who met and created the site while attending Harvard Business School. The site gives users access to rent current season designer dresses and jewelry at a fraction of the price! You can get red-carpet style and experiment with different looks and brands without worrying about breaking the bank. Sweet, right?

Worried that the dress won't fit correctly once it arrives? Well, you have the option of choosing two different lengths so it will fit just right. You can choose between R-Regular if you are 5'4"-5'6" and L-Long for heights above 5'6". Rent the Runway also sends you a second size as a backup in whatever dress you order for free too!  They also provide a styling kit with essentials such as double-sided tape. You can even ask that they send you your dress in both lengths so that you can decide whether you want to rock your dress in flats or heels. We think that's a lot better than going to a tailor! Once prom is over, you just send back your gown in the prepaid envelope included in your order and that's it! So easy!

Use Rent the Runway for prom and any other formal event you have upcoming from weddings to Homecoming come back-to-school in the fall! We promise that you'll find a dream gown that your Prince Charming won't resist!

Are you going to try Rent the Runway? What other tricks do you know for getting designer dresses for less?
