This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Rent The Runway Unlimited

Rent the Runway has just launched Unlimited – a new subscription service that lets you rent 3 pieces out at a time (exchange them for new pieces as frequently as you like), for a monthly fee.

The Subscription: Rent the Runway Unlimited

The Cost: $99 a month

COUPON: Get your first month for $49 – no coupon needed!

The Products: “Build your queue from our collection of dresses and accessories, and, once we notify you via email, you’ll be asked to select the 3 items you want in your first shipment. Keep the items as long as you want and, when you’re ready, return 1, 2 or 3 of your items. You will then select the same number of items for your next shipment. You can cancel anytime.

Choose from nearly everything on our website, including dresses, handbags, jewelry, outerwear and seasonal items. Exceptions include, but are not limited to: bridal and vintage accessories and items from select designers.”

What do you think of this new subscription from Rent the Runway? They tried something like before, but it was only for accessories and jewelry, so I’m happy to see it now includes clothing. I just signed up – I’m on the waiting list and just added a ton of gorgeous dresses and expensive handbags to my queue.

  1. I signed up and filled my queue. I was off the wait list within a day or so and got my first pick of dress and purse. It is supposed to be shipping soon, so I’m curious to see what I think of the program. I have several events this month’s and next, and do not fit into my cocktail dress wardrobe since I had a baby, so hopefully this solves a need for me.

    • I received my first set of three items. I chose a purse, dress and scarf from my queue. They arrived within 2 days in fantastic condition. The return shipping took 2 days and within 24 hours I was allowed to choose another 3 items. I have around 80 items in my queue and about 25 were available with about 8 of those being dresses. None of the purses in my queue were available so i had to select some new ones. It was interesting to see many items that were available last time be gone including some bracelets I was hoping to get. I think this is a fun service as long as you don’t have specific expecations to receive a certain item. I’m excited to keep trying it for this month and then come to a conclusion about how much use I’ll get out of it.

  2. I’ve been a member for a couple of months. I like it very much in *theory.*
    When you can order something-add it from your queue-very few things are available. And there are even less things that you actually like. For example they have a small number of leather jackets-maybe 15-20 right? Not one has been available this entire time. The same thing with jewelry. They will almost always have something available for a formal affair-like an Oscar De La Renta necklace-but I don’t have anywhere to wear jewelry like that with any regularity.

    They just started allowing dresses to be ‘rented.’ But it is next to impossible to find anything that’s available. I had to order something else because the bag I had asked for “didn’t pass quality inspection.” And then yesterday I rented another one-and then the same thing happened. Their customer service is amazing-they worked with me over chat for the better part of an hour trying to find something that they had in stock. I wanted a non-formal dress-either a date or daytime dress. I’m not picky at all. We went through every non-formal dress in my ‘que’ (I had about 20 .)–and not *one* was available. Nor were one of the other 10 or so dresses we went through that were not in my que. No other handbags (except dressy clutches) either. So-the search was getting ardous-so I decided to just get a formal dress for the fun of it to go out with my husband for drinks b/c people will just assume we’re going to or coming from some formal affair. I think it will be fun….once.
    They are adding non-formal event items a lot. But right now-it’s still a hit and miss-and for me and this time a miss.
    So, if you go to formal affairs even once a month it’s worth it. Otherwise you’re probably paying all that money for a nice handbag when you can find it and some jewelry- for now. Which must be worth it to me-b/c I’ve tried to cancel 2x and couldn’t bring myself to do it. 🙂

  3. Pricey, but the service will probably justify the price. Maybe if I had more occasions to wear such nice pieces!

  4. I’m gonna try this out. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. I’m curious how long you’ll have to be on the waiting list. Thinking of doing this before my trip to Costa Rica so I have a few cute dresses for dresses at night 🙂

    • I have been on the wait list for a month. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes before I’m taken off? I’ve called RTR but they said they are unable to tell me an exact date. So frustrating.

      • Me too. 🙁 Every day I hope for an email.

  6. This might be a good idea based on the number of wedding invites I’ve received lately! So many gorgeous options!!!
