The day you start grabbing for roomy tees and sweats, you know it’s time for a maternity wardrobe makeover. But who has the money to invest in such temporary clothing, especially for a one-time special event?

Thanks to, dressing up while you’re pregnant just got a lot easier (and less pricey!) From Christian Siriano for Moody Mamas to Olian Maternity, they have a wide selection of beautiful mom-to-be dresses that are grouped by occasion (baby shower, cocktail party, date night, wedding). All you have to do is choose your style and how long you want to rent it — two weeks is the max — and you’ll receive it in a few days via FedEx.

Once you’re done, send the garment back in the pre-paid mailer — dry cleaning is included in the price of the rental. For a one week rental, prices start at about $35. Even better? You have the option to order several sizes to ensure you have the right fit. Just send back the dresses you don’t want within 48 hours and you won’t be charged the rental fee. Talk about stress-free shopping!
