Borrow For Your Bump–“Rent the Runway” for Pregnant Gals!
I have come across the coolest website–www.borrowforyourbump.com! BYFB is really awesome, it’s like rent the runway for pregnant women. I have some big events coming up; and it just seems silly to buy a nice, expensive maternity dress, or dress in a larger size for one or two occasions. Borrow for your Bump is the best solution. It has everything from designer maternity jeans to dresses to outerwear. It carries brand names such as Paige Denim, Imanimo, Maternal America and Seraphine.
I have 5 rented dresses, each one cost between $24-31 to rent for an entire month. The dresses come with prepaid return envelopes; and you have the option to rent them for longer, or even buy them if you really love them. The service is amazing, the dresses came right away packed in super cute bright pink tissue paper along with a BYFB tote bag. Shipping is free for orders over $75, and the order comes with a receipt and instructions on how to care for the items. If the clothes don’t work, you can send them back immediately with the tags on for a full refund or exchange.
4 out of the 5 dresses fit me perfectly. I have 2 baby showers coming up in May, one in NYC and one at home in Idaho. I also have a wedding to go to in the Hamptons in June. I’m trying to decide which dresses I should wear for each event. Here’s a look at the 4 I am keeping, maybe you can help me decide! I’m certain I will wear the black dress for the wedding, maybe the paisley dress for my shower in Idaho, and the shift dress (or the red striped dress) for my Cinco de Mayo themed shower in NYC. The red striped dress I could wear on the Friday night of the wedding for the clam bake; or I could wear the shift dress to that.
Let me know your thoughts on what I should wear and when! Also, make sure to share BYFB with your best friends, sisters, cousins, nieces, etc. who are expecting. Krystal, the founder, is so helpful, so cool and so friendly and easy to work with. I think it’s the best idea, and it’s so much fun to rent great clothes during this period of my life. I LOVE being pregnant!
