Pregnant With Nothing to Wear to a Fancy Party?

This just in! Maternity dresses to rent by mail… for $35-$70. I so wish this was around when I was pregnant!

You’re invited to a work cocktail party, a wedding, and a dressy baby shower… all this summer… and you’re pregnant. Who wants to shell out lots of cash for new maternity dresses that you’ll wear once or twice at best? Not me that’s for sure. Check out this new online company that allows you to rent trendy or classic dresses for a one or two week rental period with free return shipping. It’s appropriately called Rent Maternity Wear and just launched this week! At totally reasonable prices! They even have a 48 hour try-on period. If you don’t like the dress(es) you were sent, you can send back and they’ll refund the rental fee. Pretty risk-free.

I love this royal blue Ruffle Edge Sleeve Dress ($35 for 1 week) on the left for a couple of reasons. First of all the color would look great on most anyone regardless of hair or skin color. Second, It has bell sleeves which are a flattering style and is especially nice for those of us who may not want to show arms. The to-the-knee length is also a plus.

See my favorites after the jump…

Jeweled Neckline Sheath Maternity Dress ($39 for 1 week)

I love the classic Jackie O-ness of this one. The jewel neck collar adds a lot to a simple dress. You could wear this to a variety of evening events: a wedding, a cocktail party, the theater…

Long Pleated Maxi Maternity Dress ($45 for 1 week)

This dress is like a blank canvas–you can really make it your own with jewelry: long necklaces, a cuff or bangles, or drop earrings.

Chiffon Shower Dress ($45 for 1 week)

This is a perfect dress for a wedding or baby shower and could be dressed up with heels and jewelry. You could also add a cropped cardigan in any pastel color.
