I love fashion. That is very obvious! As much as I’d love to have an endless budget to buy every pretty floral dress and designer handbag, I can’t, because I’m on a budget. I have student loans and can’t get myself to have an unlimited budget for clothing. Additionally since the beginning of this year I am making a conscious effort to be sustainable and consume less in every aspect of my life. Insert Rent The Runway Unlimited! RTR Unlimited is a monthly clothing subscription service that allows you to rent designer items from dresses, skirts, pants, tops and accessories for a monthly fee.
I signed up for RTR back in June and have been loving the endless clothing options. I am pleasantly surprised by all the modest, hijab friendly, pieces RTR has to offer. I figured I’d break the process down for everyone who’s interested in trying the service in a single post.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH RENT THE RUNWAY UNLIMITED
I signed up for RTR Unlimited in June. To be honest I was a bit hesitant and contemplated signing up for 3 months prior to signing up. My biggest concern was, are there enough modest, hijab-fridnly pieces that will actually work for me? To my surprise, yes there is! As soon as I signed up for my account I started creating lists and heart-ing items that I wanted to rent. I was able to filter dresses by length and sleeve type, additionally filter skirts and pants by length.
RENT THE RUNWAY UNLIMITED FAQ
What Items Can I Rent?
The categories of clothing items available with RTR Unlimited membership is dresses, tops, bottoms, jumpsuits & rompers, sweaters & knits, jackets & outerwear. RTR Unlimited also includes kids and maternity items! The accessories include jewelry, handbags, and sunglasses.
How Fast is Shipping and Returns?
Insanely fast! To be honest I had my doubts but ended up being pleasantly surprised by how fast the return process is. For example, I dropped off an order at UPS around 4:30pm on a Friday, I received an e-mail on Saturday around 11am that my items were returned and I can pick out new times! Orders placed before 2pm are shipped and received within 2 business days. Therefore no items are received on weekends – please make note of this! Additionally items can be returned in store. There is a Rent The Runway store located in Georgetown, which is conveniently near my work, therefore sometimes I stop in to return items. A visit to the store also allows you to try on items that are available in store.
I highly recommend reading the reviews. I have found that to be extremely helpful to know when to size down or size up with items, especially designers that I haven’t worn pieces from. With RTR Unlimited you are not able to order back up size as you would with tradition Rent The Runway rentals. However since you can rent 4 items, you are able to order two sizes of one item. The only issue I have run into is length, since I’m short. I ordered this pair of wide leg pants and it was way too long. I tried to pair it with my highest pair of heels and sadly it was still too long. Otherwise, I haven’t had any issues with sizing.
Do You Need To Clean Items?
NOPE. RTR takes care of the dry cleaning. You simply send the items bag in the provided garment bag and they take care of everything! It’s super easy and convenient.
Are There Hijab Friendly Items?
YES. There are a ton of modest pieces to rent, especially for summer. I absolutely adore this blue dress, this floral skirt, this maxi dress, and these wide leg pants. I am very excited for fall in order to rent the endless options of long sleeved midi dresses and skirts!
