Determine Your Maternity Size and Shape

As your body begins to evolve, understanding your current size becomes essential in finding a maternity dress that feels like it was made just for you. Take a moment for a quick measure-up, grab a measuring tape, and jot down your bust, waist (right above your belly), and hips.

Every mum-to-be carries her little one differently, and this journey brings out a silhouette that is distinctly yours. Are you glowing with a bump carried high, showcasing a baby nestled low, or perhaps you're embracing a belly that's blooming all around? No matter your shape, a world of dresses is waiting to drape you in elegance.

With the right knowledge of your size and shape, explore maternity dresses that promise to make you look beautiful on every occasion.

Focus on Fabric and Comfort

When selecting your maternity dress, the secret lies in the fabric. Soft, stretchable fabrics like chiffon and beautifully lined lace effortlessly accommodate your growing body without sacrificing an ounce of style.

The Magic in the Details

It's the little things that make a big difference, especially in maternity dresses. As your body continues to change, you'll find a newfound appreciation for dresses designed with your comfort in mind. Look for those thoughtful details that offer elastic waistbands that gently embrace rather than constrict and wrap designs that flatter your figure while making it easy to dress up or down.

Consider the Versatility of the Dress

Mama Rentals knows the value of a dress that serves multiple purposes, so we've curated our "One Size Fits Most" collection. This collection caters to a broad spectrum of sizes and offers the flexibility to adapt for non-maternity use. So, as you look through our collection, know that they're designed to accommodate a variety of shapes and sizes,  so you don’t have to stress about what size to order. Let Mama Rentals help you find a plus size maternity dress for hire that grows with you, making each step of your journey even more special.

Consider the Occasion

Life doesn't pause when you're expecting, and neither should your flair. Whether it's a fairytale wedding, a dreamy maternity photoshoot, or a heartfelt vow renewal, each event calls for a dress that complements the occasion and celebrates your glowing maternity silhouette.

  • For Weddings: Opt for elegant, flowy gowns that offer comfort and sophistication. Look for dresses with empire waists or adjustable features that gracefully accommodate your bump and make you feel like the special guest you are.
  • Maternity Photoshoots: Embrace maxi dresses with delicate details like lace or embroidery that highlight your beautiful bump. Soft fabrics and vibrant colours can add a magical touch to your maternity shoot, capturing the essence of your pregnancy glow.
  • Vow Renewals: Celebrate your love and the anticipation of your growing family with a romantic and comfortable dress. A-line dresses provide the flexibility and elegance suited for such a heartfelt occasion.

Maximising Your Maternity Dress Hire Experience

Let's walk through how to make the most of your plus-size maternity dress hire experience, ensuring every detail is as special as the memories you're about to create.

Try On Service

We understand that comfort and fit are paramount, especially during pregnancy. That's why we offer a bespoke try-on service for our customers. This unique option allows you to select dresses from our collection and try them on in the comfort of your home. Whether you're unsure about the size or the fit or simply wish to see how the dress feels, our try-on service takes the guesswork out of your rental decision.

Schedule your try-on session early in the week (Monday to Wednesday), and we'll ensure the dresses reach you promptly, complete with prepaid return packaging for hassle-free returns. It's our way of guaranteeing that the dress you choose is the dress you'll love. Or if you live locally, you can opt for the free local pick up and drop off option. Pick it up and try it on in the comfort of your own home, and drop off the dress within 24 hours, there is no need to worry about paying for postage

Booking in Advance

The key to a seamless maternity dress hire experience? Planning ahead. We recommend booking your dress as soon as you have your event date. A good rule of thumb is to aim for at least 1-2 months in advance, especially for peak seasons like weddings or holidays. This not only secures your first-choice dress but also gives you ample time for any try-ons or adjustments you might need. Early booking means one less thing to worry about, letting you focus on the joy of your upcoming event with peace of mind.
