Jennifer Hyman, CEO and Co-Founder of uber-popular dress rental site Rent the Runway, has been able to influence and encourage designers including Badgley Mischka, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Theia to expand their size range, and has increased her stock of dresses from Adrianna Papell and Kay Unger (both already designed plus sizes). With a selection of over 40 options in sizes 14 to 22, ranging in prices from $50 to $200, curvy women can now enjoy the accessible luxury of Rent the Runway.
“When we launched Rent the Runway, we didn’t fully understand that our business was going to be about so much more than saving money, but rather, feeling empowered. Every woman deserves to feel beautiful before the most important occasions in her life and every woman regardless of her size should have her choice of the designer dress that gives her the most self-confidence,” said Hyman.
“Until now, we have only been able to follow through on this undertaking for virtually half of the female population. We are so proud that our business has grown enough that we are finally able to make designer fashion not only accessible to, but also inclusive of, women of all shapes and sizes.”
