i am show live The thrill of shopping for a spin – for a new outfit – will never be lost on me. That being said, having a big-time shopper habit also comes with a big-time price tag. So, when the opportunity came to test Runway Monthly Membership ($94 and up) for three months, I was instantly excited. Depending on your budget and the plan you choose, you can rent anywhere from 4-16 items per month — the service sends them to you for free, you enjoy them for a few weeks to a month, and then you send them back (once again , free). Membership includes cleaning and rental coverage, so if you have a small spill here and there, it’s no big deal. Once you finish, you repeat the process again.
I tried the plan that allows me to rent eight pieces per month. For me, I found the process intuitive and easy. After trying the service all summer, I haven’t run into any issues. If you really like something you rent, you can even buy it to be yours forever. If you want more details, keep reading and I’ll give you the lowdown.
What I love about Runway monthly subscription fares
Since getting a Rent the Runway membership, I’ve rarely bought clothes from other sites. Being able to get a new batch of designer pieces regularly has quelled my need to go shopping all the time. I definitely saved money, especially for the dresses I needed for big events like weddings and birthday parties. I also appreciate that each clothing item usually has a variety of customer reviews with photos that show how the pieces look on different bodies. It feels incredibly authentic.
Here’s what’s worth noting about renting Runway’s monthly membership
I’d start with a four- or eight-piece plan to test how often you wear your fare — if you use everything regularly, go up to more pieces. The site makes it very easy to change your plan type whenever you want. It’s also good to know that Rent the Runway offers more than clothes; You can get jewelry and handbags. For expectant mothers, there are also plenty of cute maternity items.
Who is the best fare for Runway’s monthly membership?
If you like on-trend clothes and are not a fan of repeating clothes, this subscription plan will be great for you. I will also say it’s amazing when you have a few big events in a month. For me, I like it because I actually save a lot of money for shopping in the long run.
