A Maternity Wear Haven Cause Babies Are Expensive

No more horsing around! I’m all about dresses in winter thanks to Bella Gravida.

I woke up one morning, looked down and could no longer see my feet. My baby bump is growing at a rapid speed. Soon, I won’t fit through the door.

My incredible growing bump is also killing my fashion style. I live in tights yo. And when I do throw something on that’s “cute” it’s an oversized flannel-shirt dress – AKA “a moo moo,” as Boo called it.

What’s a fashionable New York City gal to do? Wear dresses in winter. It’s my best bet as putting on tights has become work. I sit down, breathe heavily and pull up my leggings one leg at a time. Stand up and pull them up some more. By this point I’m sweating, so I call Boo for help. And my poor fiancé is on his knees lifting my leggings up like I’m a horse that needs hooves.

Why don’t you just wear maternity clothes, silly? you ask. Haven’t you heard? Babies are expensive! I don’t want to spend my hard-earned cash on apparel that I’ll only wear for a few months. So I found another affordable option: Bella Gravida.

Bella Gravida is the first monthly subscription maternity and nursing clothing rental service who’s sole purpose is to help pregnant and nursing women look and feel their best. Created by Christa Floresca, CEO of Bella Gravida, after outgrowing her professional and tailored clothing when pregnant, she realized nothing existed in the maternity-subscription services industry. “I couldn’t figure out how was it possible that no one saw this important need and worked to fill it?” she said. “So – pregnant, frustrated and frumpy, I began to build Bella Gravida.”

PLUS: How to Wear White Like a Pro

The maternity subscription service launched in September of 2015. The process is extremely simple. Just choose the number of pieces you’d like on a monthly basis and sign up. You can then fill your virtual closet with dozens of styles that match your size, personal style, and taste. Once you’ve chosen 20 items in your closet, you’ll receive your first shipment. And yes, shipping is free even when you ship back the item! Once you’ve worn something and want to exchange it for new threads, drop it in the mail and the next piece is on it’s way. Oh, and did I mention you don’t have to wash the garments before returning them? Free professional dry cleaning is included with the pricing plans:

It’s a win-win situation, preggos. And I should know. I rocked a Bella Gravida dress at a NYFW event and felt pretty and, most importantly, like myself again.
