If you want to rent maternity clothes then one of the best ways to do so is through a maternity subscription box. There are several that rent maternity dresses, evening gowns, and formal wear that will have you looking quite fashionable while pregnant!
I have three sisters, and when I was growing up, we were constantly borrowing clothes from each other.
My older sister tends to stick to solid color T-shirts and I am more a fan of prints, but every now and then an occasion demanded that I wear her cute dress or she borrows my shirt for a job interview.
Now that we’re all adults and live in separate states, it’s not practical or easy to borrow clothes from each other. Though I did borrow my sister’s Sleeping Beauty Halloween costume last year, and that was totally worth the postage!
So let’s talk about maternity clothes for a minute.
I don’t know about y’all, but I have three kids, and with each new pregnancy, I’ve gotten a little more sick of my maternity clothes. I have cheap maternity clothes. Most of my maternity clothing is from Savers, garage sales, or the clearance rack.
It’s really hard to justify spending a lot of money on clothes that I know will only fit me for nine months.

Currently, I have a lot of friends who are currently pregnant, or just had a baby, or planning on getting pregnant again. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a friend the exact same size as you that you could borrow maternity clothes from for 9 months like I borrowed my sisters’ clothes.
That’s what a lot of other people thought, too!
Maternity Clothing Subscription Boxes
There are all these great companies out there right now who make renting maternity clothes super easy. Whether you need an evening gown, T-shirts, essentials, or a new pair of maternity pants, you can find what you’re looking for from several awesome maternity subscription box companies!
I found the following online shops where you can rent maternity clothes throughout your pregnancy (and in most cases you have the option to buy something if you love it) via a subscription.
Places to Rent Maternity Clothes:
- Borrow For Your Bump
- Rent the Runway
- Mine for Nine
- Motherhood Closet
- La Belle Bump
- Le Tote Maternity
And in case you aren’t crazy about renting maternity clothes, there are (at least) two online retailers that send you maternity clothes through a maternity subscription box service:
Non-Rental Maternity Clothes
I went ahead and researched all the details about what makes each one unique and their price points and what to expect for each one! You’re welcome.
Maternity Clothes Rental – Gowns, Dresses, and Clothes
Borrow for Your Bump caters to expectant women during every stage of pregnancy. You can rent formal maternity gowns or order maternity subscription boxes from them. Their motto is, “Shopping for the Modern Mama”. I’m focusing on the maternity clothes subscription box side of their business, but their rental gowns are also really beautiful and great if you need a fancy dress for a wedding.
How often boxes come: When you want them. You get a box of clothes and send items back when you’re ready for another box. You can cancel at anytime.
Costs of the subscription boxes: It’s $99 every month, and your rentals are unlimited, meaning you can exchange one or all four garments for another shipment at any time. Shipping is free, and they clean them for you, too! Use promo code WELCOME10 to get 10% off your first order!
What you can expect to receive in a box: 4 rental maternity clothing items like maternity shirts, work pants, jeans, etc.
What I like about Borrow For Your Bump: I like that you can borrow the clothes for different periods of time. So if Borrow For Your Bump sends you a really cute shirt that you like and you want to wear it for a few weeks, you have that option. But then if they send you a blouse that you hate, you can send it back immediately. I also like that you have the option to buy the maternity clothes from them if you love them and think you’ll want to wear them during your next pregnancy.
Additional Info: You can buy maternity workout clothes and leggings from them as well. You don’t get to pick out the clothes that go in your maternity subscription box, but you do fill out a style profile so that the company can send you styles and sizes that you’ll like. If you decide to rent a formal dress from them, you CAN pick out which dress you want. They also have GREAT reviews from shoppers!

Not a lot of us moms have fancy dresses just hanging out in our closets. And if we did, they probably wouldn’t fit over a pregnant belly.
Rent The Runway is great for those special occasions when you need to look extra glamorous at your co-worker’s wedding or your husband’s work party. But did you know Rent the Runway also does dress rentals for pregnant women? When you’re asked about your body type, you can just check under the filter “Body Type” and select “Bump-Friendly.”
How often boxes come: You can choose from a one-time rental for 4-8 days, unlimited maternity rentals where you can rent 4 styles and swap them anytime (RTR Unlimited), or RTR Update, where you rent 4 styles and swap them out once a month.
Costs of the subscription boxes:You can use code FIRSTRTR to get 20% off your first order.
- RTR One-Time Rental: You just pay for the cost of the dress
- RTR Unlimited: $159 per month but you can get it $99 + a free gift with code RTRMOM
- RTR Update: $89 per month
Shipping is FREE and they dry clean the dresses for you. You can pause or cancel at any time.
What you can expect to receive in a box: 4 different dresses that you pick out!
What I like about Rent the Runway: A few of my friends have used Rent the Runway to find dresses for special occasions, and they always look so classy and elegant in their photos. The dresses strike me as beautiful, high-quality, and mostly affordable. The rental price of the dress is listed on their site, as well as the actual retail price. Helps you feel like you’re getting a good deal!

Mine for Nine is a great way to shop for maternity clothes, except you’re renting them instead of buying. You save money borrowing clothes that would normally cost you a fortune to purchase brand new.

What I like about Mine for Nine: Their clothes are really cute, and appeal to a lot of different body types, styles, and price ranges. You can customize which items you want to look at based on clothing size, color, price, and if it’s available for purchase or not. Plus you don’t have to worry about re-selling the clothes after you’re done wearing them.
Additional Info About Mine for Nine:

- Maternity evening gown rentals have only a fourteen-day borrowing window. If you don’t send it back within seven (7) days of its due date, your credit card will be charged for an additional two weeks.

I love the “Motherhood Closet” name, because it feels like you’re stepping into someone else’s closet to borrow something.
Once you sign up for Motherhood Closet’s “Clothesline Club” you get to borrow 15 maternity clothing items that you pick out yourself. You pay a monthly fee for the service.

There is a $20 shipping fee each time you swap out your items, regardless if you are swapping all or one of your borrowed items. This fee covers all swapping shipping costs.
What you can expect to receive in a box: 15 items of gently used maternity clothing that you’ve picked out.
What I like about Motherhood Closet: If you sign up to get clothes from them for all 9 months, you’re only paying $50 a month for the service, which is a pretty good deal. You can also shop their clearance, and get great deals like these Blue H & M Mama Maternity Boot Cut Maternity Jeans (Gently Used – Size 10) for only $8.99!
Additional Info About Motherhood Closet:
- You cannot borrow “New” maternity items. None of the clothing is new. It is all secondhand.
- As a Clothesline Club Member, you can swap any and all borrowed items at any time and as many times as you would like with no limits! You keep the items you want to swap until you receive your new selection. So you will always have 15 items in your possession at all times.

Shipping is FREE! You use a prepaid envelope to send the maternity clothes back.
What you can expect to receive in a box: 3-5 clothing items, depending on the box you choose.
What I like about La Belle Bump: You can’t pick out which clothes you want in your box, so it’s up to the stylist to figure out what you like or what would look good on you based on your style preferences. Normally I wouldn’t like handing over the control to a stylist, but all the reviews I read RAVED about La Belle Bump’s customer service and attention to detail where that is concerned.
Additional Info About La Belle Bump:
If you’re looking for a maternity dress for a special occasion, they have a gorgeous, (though limited) selection of evening maternity gowns and cocktail dresses. You can rent your dress for 7 days. Price is dependent on the dress you choose. I would love to find an occasion to wear this gorgeous evening gown. Can someone invite me to their fancy party, please?

Le Tote Maternity
With Le Tote Maternity, you borrow gently used maternity clothes for as long or as short as you want for a flat monthly fee. You fill out a style profile, and then a stylist chooses your clothes and accessories for you.

- $79 a month for 4 Garments Only
- $99 a month for 6 Garments Only
Shipping is FREE, both ways.
What you can expect to receive in a box: Maternity clothing items and jewelry
What makes them unique: Even though a stylist picks out your clothes, you get to preview the items 48 hours in advance before your box is sent to you. Then, if you don’t like what your stylist picked out, you can swap out the clothes for items from their website that you do like. That way there are no huge surprises and you only get clothes sent to you that you approve of. You don’t have to mess with the hassle of sending them back the minute you get them because you would never wear that pattern, cut, style, etc.
What I like about Le Tote Maternity: You pay for the membership, not per item. If you want to, you can order up to 4 totes within a month so that you have something new to wear each weekend. You also don’t have to worry about washing/cleaning the clothes either! At Le Tote they do that for you after you send the clothes back.
Additional Info About Le Tote Maternity: So what happens if you fall in love with a cute shirt or dress? You do have the option to buy it at 20 to 50 percent off retail in most cases. What if you fall in love with all the clothes in the tote and want to keep everything? Then you get your next month of Le Tote FREE! Oh, also, if you live in a super warm state like Texas, you can tell Le Tote a little bit about what the weather is like where you live, and they keep that in mind when your clothes are picked out.

You’ve probably heard of Stitch Fix because it’s pretty popular! But Stitch Fix offers maternity clothes now, which is a huge bonus for pregnant and nursing women (check out Katelyn’s Stitch Fix nursing review).
After you fill out a style quiz and sizing chart in your profile, a Stitch Fix stylist picks out your five clothing items for you to wear, including tops, bottoms, jewelry, and shoes.
How often boxes come: You choose the delivery date of the box, and then send back what you don’t want after 3 days. You decide when you want more clothes!

What I like about Stitch Fix Maternity: I think it’s really cool that you can put in your due date so that Stitch Fix Maternity can send you clothes from your first few weeks of pregnancy all the way through when your baby is born. I like that they offer nursing-friendly tops, too, so you can keep using them for a few months after your baby is born.
Additional Info About Stitch Fix Maternity: You only have to pay for what you keep. When you fill out your style quiz, you can also put what your price requirements are, though their items do tend to be on the pricier end of the spectrum.
