How does Rent the Runway work?

There are three ways to rent: Rent for a specific date or subscribe to a membership.

To rent for a specific date:

1. Find It: Filter by color, length, trend and more to find the best look. We have thousands of dresses from 250+ designers.

2. Reserve It: Choose a delivery and return date, and rent for 4 or 8 days. Add a backup size for free and you can also add a different dress for $32.50.

3. Receive It: The dress will be delivered via UPS or courier service (available for Manhattan addresses below 125th Street) to your home, office or hotel by 8pm on your delivery date.

4. Return It: Returns are free! Place items in the provided packaging (which includes a pre-paid label). Take the packaging to a UPS drop box or RTR store by 12pm on your rental return date. We’ll handle the dry cleaning.
