10 REASONS TO RENT INDIAN CLOTHING
10 REASONS TO RENT INDIAN CLOTHING
“What am I going to wear?” – that’s probably one of the first questions that popped into your head when you received an invite for that upcoming Indian wedding. It’s a question that’s frustrated women in the US for a long time because for decades, our options for Indian clothing have been severely limited due to accessibility, time, and money constraints.
That was the reason we created Borrow the Bazaar. We present you with a new way to shop for Indian clothing. Our rental model makes this process more affordable, more accessible, and, dare we say, more ENJOYABLE!
Here are our top 10 reasons for why YOU should be renting Indian clothing from the Bazaar!
1. SAVE MONEY
A decent Indian outfit will usually set you back about $300+. That’s not an easy cost to swallow, especially when you are likely going to be wearing 3-5 different outfits to each and every Indian wedding you’ll be attending. For the cost of buying just one outfit, you could borrow THREE from the Bazaar. That’s money you could be spending elsewhere – we recommend shoes!
2. GET YOUR OUTFIT ON TIME
Imagine this: you spend $300 ordering a beautiful custom-made outfit from a retailer online. A few days before your event, you get a notification from the retailer that your order is delayed due to production delays or because your package is caught up in customs. You’re now left outfit-less, and out $300 for a non-returnable item. This is one of the main reasons people choose BTB – we guarantee on-time deliver your outfit so you’re never left hanging again.
3. FEEL TRANSFORMED
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of ripping into a package you’ve been waiting for, slipping on a new gorgeous dress, and then strutting your stuff in front of your bedroom mirror! Clothing truly has the power to transform how we feel and how we carry ourselves. Slipping into a BTB outfit that’s grand and beautiful will make you feel grand and beautiful too!
4. EXPERIENCE A NEW DESIGNER
Over 90% of our customers end up wearing a designer they’ve never tried before, and for many it’s their first Indian designer piece ever! Our designers craft each and every outfit with love, paying attention to the smallest of details that will make each outfit stand out. Experience the quality and superior craftsmanship that goes into each outfit we carry and witness how it completely transforms your look.

5. STAY IN STYLE
Often times, the items we have at home and the inventory stockpiled by our local Indian clothing stores are things that are years out of style – things we haven’t turned over in a long time. This means that those styles are from years ago as well. We’re gotten used to having to just wear these old styles due to our restricted our options used to be. Not anymore! BTB stays on top of current fashion trends and works with designers that are offering products that will make every renter look in style and fabulous!
6. TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT
When you’re buying a piece forever, you tend to want to buy the same cookie-cutter styles you’re used to. Take a small risk and dare to wear something different! Go ahead and rent that jumpsuit you’ve even eyeing but unsure of or that off-beat color you’ve secretly been wanting to try. Renting is a great way to try without committing!
7. SAVE TIME
How do you currently shop for Indian clothing? Take a trip to India? Drive over to your closest Indian neighborhood to walk around the multiple clusters of stores? Browse endless websites online trying to find one that’s reliable? These are all time-consuming and tiresome methods. Renting Indian clothes from the Bazaar is EASY. Finding and booking an outfit you love takes just a few minutes and can be done from the comfort of your own bed. We’ll take care of all the shipping and cleaning from there.
8. SAVE CLOSET SPACE
The last thing you want to do is manage TWO closets. If you’re anything like us, your American clothing takes up all your closet space, and then some. Indian outfits are voluminous and take up square footage that most of us just don’t have. Rent a lehenga or gown so that you don’t have to worry about storing it away in some black hole corner of your closet.
9. NO DRY CLEANING REQUIRED
Spilled a little bit or accidentally broke the zipper on a dress? Don’t worry about it – we’ve got you covered. Dry cleaning and fixing those small wears and tears are on us! The burden of cleaning and maintaining these delicate outfits is officially off your shoulders.
10. IT’S SUSTAINABLE
Last but not least, let’s talk about the environment. Fashion’s biggest environmental crime lies in the volume of its production. Too much is produced, especially considering how few wears each item gets. So instead of 10 women buying 10 lehengas that they each wear once, BTB allows them all to share one. This leads to less production and less waste. By renting, you can play an important role in reducing the impact and severity of this environmental crime.
