After I had my son, I packed up my maternity clothes, and to be honest, I didn’t want to look at those clothes again for quite a while! I wish that when I was pregnant a few years ago, there were maternity subscription boxes on the market so that I didn’t have to wear the same rotation of tops day in, day out. Recently, I learned about these companies that are making prepping for baby a lot more fun!
Founder and CEO, Julie Allen, wanted to help moms feel confident in themselves while pregnant and recognized that fashion was one way to do so. After completing a style profile online, you’ll be mailed a shipment of three to four complete, fashion-forward maternity outfits.
Each hand-selected shipment includes a variety of high-end clothing, shoes and accessories as well as a note explaining how to style each outfit. Brands include J Brand Maternity Denim, Ingrid, and Isabel and Seraphine. You’ll only be charged for what you choose to keep. Average price per item is $75 to $100. You pay a $30 styling fee up front which is credited back to your card when you spend $150 or more. Customers love that BUMPstyle Box takes the guesswork out of getting dressed. Whether you’re looking for everyday maternity clothes or something special for a black-tie affair, the stylists at BUMPstyle Box will find something trendy and gorgeous.
Upon shopping for maternity-wear, friends Tamisha Piper and Tina Hawkins noticed a shortage of stylish maternity clothes. With this realization, the two friends decided to create a subscription service that would marry pregnancy with fashion. In addition to clothing, Preggonista’s subscription box includes a premium beauty product created for pregnancy, a curated accessory and a stylish clothing garment. First, fill out a questionnaire with your pre-pregnancy size and due date. For $55 plus $7 for shipping, you’ll receive a new box per month.
Think of this company as Rent the Runway for maternity. Featured everywhere from Good Morning America to Glamour Magazine, Le Tote allows you to change-up your wardrobe as your bump grows. First, you’ll create a wish list by adding pieces to your “closet.” For $59 a month, you’ll be shipped three maternity garments and two accessories, a $250 value shipped for free both ways. A stylist will put together a tote based on your style preferences that will be emailed to you before it is shipped. If you don’t like some of the items, you can swap them out before your shipment is sent. After a month, ship back the items you’ve enjoyed wearing and wait for your new Tote to arrive. If you want to purchase any of the items, simply keep them and your credit card will be charged. Le Tote takes care of all the laundering of clothing and cleaning of accessories.
