We understand that you want to find the perfect dress to feel fabulous during this special day and make a lasting impression on your high school classmates.

Why Should You Rent Your Prom Dress?

For decades, young boys have been renting their prom suits instead of buying them. So why isn’t it more common for girls? Here are a few reasons why you should consider renting instead of buying your prom dress.

1. Wear a designer dress, without the price tag

Renting your prom dress allows you to wear beautiful, designer creations that would usually be out of your budget. Why compromise with a dull looking dress when you could be wearing a fabulous gown for a cheaper price? Make a statement that will make your classmates go “Wow!”, without having to worry about the price tag. After all, prom only happens once in your life, and you should feel and look like your best self! And why not saving money you can spend on other prom accessories?

2. It will save space in your closet

We all have that one expensive item of clothing in our closet that we keep just in case we have a special occasion for it. However, in most cases, this item will accumulate dust for many years before we finally decide to get rid of it. Save yourself the guilty conscience of spending hundreds of dollars for something you will only wear once and rent a cheaper, fashionable prom dress instead!

3. Have a simple, stress free experience

Renting a prom dress online allows you to browse through the company’s collection saving your precious time. You can filter the results with your custom criteria, such as the color or length you want, to easily find the perfect dress for you. Additionally, most prom dress rental websites also offer tips from styling experts when you go in person, to help you find a dress that will compliment your body type and skin tone.

4. It is good for the environment!

Finally, renting your prom dress instead of buying it is a simple gesture that will have a positive impact on the environment. Fast fashion is a huge contributor to global warming and we should try as much as possible to only buy clothes we know we will be wearing several times. Considering how easy it has become to rent instead of purchasing clothes, there aren’t any reasons why you shouldn’t rent your prom dress to look great, save money and the environment!
