You could say a few of us here have become quite the evangelists for Rent the Runway. After seeing Kristen strut her stuff on a Las Vegas business trip in two gorgeous designer dresses, I tried it myself for an event this past spring, and fell in love with the clothes, the service, the style–everything. So I’m glad even more women will get to reap the benefits with the addition of their brand new plus size line.

Rent the Runway Plus is so awesome for women sizes 14-22 who feel more Badgley-Mischka than Lane Bryant. In fact, they happen to have Badgley-Mischka, with a few other designers and more to come. And because, as with the rest of the site, you can shop by body type, color and other attributes, it really makes it easy to find something that’s just perfect for a night.

The thing I really like is that these are just flattering, stylish dresses; no muumuus, no shapeless shrowds. I mean, how sexy is this Slate & Willow Just a Mirage Shift Dress?

Four-day rentals start around $60 for a $180 Adrianna Pappell dress to about $185 for an $1150 Carmen Marc Valvo gown, and that includes a second size, should you be on the fence. I’d say, start reserving a few hot picks for holidays now or any other special event you may have coming up. And don’t forget to add a few rental accessories–they’re pretty great too.

And hey, thanks to the designers for not forgetting about our larger-sized sisters. And for recognizing that all women want to look and feel fantastic, whatever their shapes. –Liz
