Motherhood Closet Trial

A while ago I posted about the top sites to rent maternity clothes from. The one I was most excited about finding (and using) was Motherhood Closet. I liked the fact that you rent 15 items of your selection from their collection of gently-used, name-brand maternity clothing, and that you can swap the clothing as many times as you want (just pay shipping), throughout your rental period of 3, 6 or 9 months.

Some of my favorite items that work for any season were:

Pure Body Tank and Pure Body Crewneck Tee – I had these in the basic colors: white, grey, black and they were comfy and flattering. You can wear them with shorts, jeans, skirts, under sweaters etc. It also comes in a long sleeved version. Continue reading
