Renting key maternity pieces is not only convenient and cost-effective, but also a sustainable and stylish solution. Because who said maternity clothes have to be boring?
Pregnancy is an exciting time of growth and change, but it is also one that leaves many women staring at their wardrobes and wondering what to wear. Luckily, there is a solution. Renting these garments is not only convenient, cost-effective, and sustainable, but also means that you don’t have to compromise on great style – allowing your wardrobe to shift naturally as your body does.
Benefits of hiring your maternity wardrobe
“For me personally there were some big benefits to hiring instead of buying during pregnancy,” says Natalie of This Sweet Life, on the versatility of renting her maternity pieces. “GlamCorner has a whole range of maternity-specific options [so] you can dress your bump for every occasion, from work to gym gear and casual wear to that special dress for your baby shower." Writing on her blog, Natalie adds that it’s a great idea to let your personal stylist step in here and help you work out the best options for you.
This is especially true as you learn to navigate your pregnancy and post-pregnancy figure, allowing you to seek expert advice and experiment with which styles make you feel the most comfortable and confident right throughout this exciting time in your life.
“Sometimes it’s as simple as selecting the right silhouette – one that cinches in where you want it to, but not where you don’t,” says GC Stylist Olivia Smith. Some of the latest trends she recommends when it comes to maternity fashion are tiered dresses and empire styles, with a loose or elasticated waist. A ruffled detail or statement sleeve can also help to balance proportions, Olivia says, while oversized sweaters work well for the winter weather.
Renting your maternity wardrobe is sustainable
Convenience aside, renting key maternity pieces is also a much more sustainable (and cost-effective) alternative to buying a whole new wardrobe. “I see hiring designer pieces as the ultimate sustainable and cost-effective solution to feeling good through style,” explains Hayley of Ecolust, adding that this model has been especially handy throughout her pregnancy. “Because,” she says, “I don’t want to buy a bunch of maternity clothes I won’t get much wear out of."
But maternity clothes needn’t be boring, either. Brands like Ripe Maternity specialise in elegant knit dresses and slip skirts that are perfect for dressing up your bump. While Soon Maternity designs flowy maternity dresses that make for an effortlessly comfortable and stylish choice right throughout pregnancy. In addition to maternity wear, GlamCorner also has a range of maternity-friendly pieces that are perfect for pregnancy and post-pregnancy styling – like wrap dresses by local designers such as Ginger & Smart or Talulah.
Hiring your wardrobe is flexible
When pregnant women are asked what to expect when they’re expecting, the answer is usually: the unexpected. How long will you need that top? How many months will you fit into those jeans? Fortunately, though, renting gives you greater flexibility for every stage of your pregnancy and post-pregnancy journey – without having to buy something new that you may only be able to wear for a few months.
So, whether you are browsing for comfortable work and casual wear throughout your pregnancy, or looking for the perfect dress to wear to your baby shower, GlamCorner has got a range of styles to suit you. And, with a GC Membership, you can experience the ease of a stylish maternity wardrobe that evolves as you do.
