I watched an episode of a reality baby programme where a high-flying expectant mum was in a state because she could never find anything suitable to wear for her important dinners. Correction, she could but they were frumpy! Initially she could slip easily into her own clothes but as time went on, the situation became more dire , she was a crumpled mess. I know that feeling, I have been there four times! If only our new friends Pippa and Robyn had been on the scene at the time!
Hire Expectations (www.hireexpectations.co.uk) was launched by twin sisters Pippa and Robyn, after seeing many pregnant friends struggle to find a dress to wear to a special occasion whilst pregnant. It can be difficult to justify splashing out on a new dress for a special occasion, when you know you may only be able to wear that dress once.
The business initially launched as a maternity dress rental website, but soon diversified into offering stylish dresses suitable for breastfeeding.
Hire Expectations offers a range of dresses ranging from stunning gowns to glamorous fitted frocks, for hire at up to 80% off retail prices (dress rentals start at £25). The site stocks dresses from ten leading labels including Crave, Isabella Oliver, Keungzai and Peaks of London, plus Butter by Nadia, a brilliant non-maternity line, popular with celebrities and designed to flatter all shapes and sizes plus maternity too. The popularity of the site means that the range is expanding quickly in line with customer feedback.
The process of hiring a dress is very simple. You just choose the dress you love in your usual size plus a back-up size if you wish, book a delivery date (a couple of days before your function) and pay (from £25 to £66 for five days, plus £9.95 delivery and return postage). After your special occasion, there’s no need to clean the dress, you simply post the dresses back in the pre-paid returns envelope where Hire Expectations will take care of the cleaning.
Thank you to Pippa and Robyn for guest posting with us today, please do get in touch with Hire Expectations if you would like to discuss their fabulous hire service.
