Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Browse our contemporary, designer maternity clothing by size, style or brand. When you find that perfect piece or outfit, choose to buy it new or borrow it for 75% off the retail price. Borrow for a month or two or three! Keep the clothing as long as you need to keep your bump looking fab. When you are finished borrowing, simply place the merchandise in the original package, affix the pre-paid and pre-addressed return shipping label, and drop it in any U.S. Postal Mailbox.
How do I pay for borrowed merchandise?
After submitting an order for borrowed merchandise, you will be asked to provide credit or debit card information.
