The future of Curtsy is buy/sell

To our incredible community —

Today we’re nervous and excited to announce our biggest change yet.

Curtsy started as a way for women to rent clothes from each other. Next week, we’re switching to buy/sell, and ending support for renting.

Curtsy works best for special occasions like formals, but most people only have a few of those per year. This made it really hard to build a sustainable business.

Even though we’ve helped our community make $1M renting out their closets, as a company we still spend more money than we make.

If you’re one of the thousands of women that use Curtsy to rent and make money, we feel you. Taking out renting is bittersweet for us.

At the same time, we’re excited for this new chapter. Buy/sell has been our most requested feature since we started Curtsy.

We’re taking your favorite things about Curtsy and bringing them to buy/sell: Our curated shopping experience, ease of posting, high quality photos, and incredible customer support.

You’ll soon be able to use Curtsy every week rather than twice a year.

The new app will launch on Monday, July 2 and we can’t wait for you to try it.

If you previously had items listed for rent, you’ll be able to list them for sale with one tap. All of your messages and past orders will still be in the app, as well as any earnings from past rentals.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thank you.

The Curtsy Closet is Officially Open in Downtown Tuscaloosa

A thousand pieces from the app, all in one place: The Curtsy Closet.

The first Curtsy Closet opened up in downtown Tuscaloosa two weeks ago. Here are the deets:

The Curtsy Closet is a Pop-Up shop with over a thousand pieces from the app. You can rent in-store or from the app, just like normal.

On the app, you can always see what’s currently available in the store.

What all can I rent in-store?

Everything from tops and bottoms, to cocktail dresses, long formal dresses, rompers, purses, and even shoes. It’s all owned by girls in Tuscaloosa.

“It’s easy and convenient to come in for an event and immediately find a rockin’ dress or outfit.” – Brittany McMahon

Why did you open up the pop-up?

We figured it was time to open an official location after our Campus Director, Olivia Kercher, ended up with 600+ dresses in the guest bedroom of her house. Shout-out to her roommates who let the un-offical Curtsy Closet take over their house.
