If you’re shopping on a budget then New Look is a very good option with inexpensive maternity fashion for everyone. They have come up with some wonderful maternity clothes to dress your bump in fuller fashion.
More importantly, they have taken into consideration the fact that no woman stays pregnant forever and have provided cheap maternity fashion, with the knowledge that these items may be just a temporary measure.
Alternatively, and perhaps an option that you would never even have considered, you could hire your maternity clothes. Really! There are companies out there that allow you to do just that. Now, I’m not talking every day clothes but if you have a special occasion coming up and you can’t justify spending a huge amount of money on an outfit that you will literally never wear again then this could be the answer to your prayers.
Swellegant.co.uk have a choice of around 60 maternity outfits suitable for weddings, evenings out and black tie events and they even stock maternity wedding dresses!
The black sequined dress pictured here on the left is a full length black sleeveless dress. It is made up of two layers (one sheer, one solid) and has discreet ties at the back and one button at the back of the neck. It also comes with plain black matching shawl. You can hire it for just £35
The Ivory wedding dress, pictured right, is a fully lined sleeveless empire line dress with fold-over sweetheart neckline and ruching at the bust. Discreet ties at the back and a small train. It is available in size 12 and it could be yours to rent for just £75
So, how else could you keep your maternity wardrobe up-to-date on a budget?
There are, of course, auction sites such as ebay where you could be lucky enough to pick up some real bargains for a fraction of the normal price but one other company I would like to introduce is maternityexchange.co.uk
They sell quality new and nearly new maternity clothes at discounted prices. It boasts of being the UK’s largest maternity clothes Dress Agency and Clearance outlet since 1999 and has 1000’s of second hand and nearly new high street and designer label maternity clothes from recent mums from all over the UK.
Take, for example, this peach and white empire line dress, manufactured by Jesland and with a recommended retail price of £50. You can buy this maternity dress on the maternity exchange website for only £8.
Or, how about this chocolate brown & cream flower print short sleeve breastfeeding top with v-neckline. This is a Mothers En Vogue creation and would normally retail at £25 but can be bought from the maternity exchange for the bargain price of £10!
Of course this site isn’t just good for buying, it is also a fantastic way to offload your maternity clothes when you’re done with them. Once your item sells maternity exchange will give you 40% of the sale price but the company will only pay out once your total reaches £50.
