I literally have nothing to wear. I’m not exaggerating. The weather is crazy here in Pittsburgh. One day it’s 80 and the next day it’s in the 40’s. All of my warmer clothes are maternity clothing and all of my Fall items are too small or involve leggings. I’m in that dreadful stage of still losing baby weight. It’s only been six weeks so I’m not being hard on myself just yet, but it’s very challenging figuring out what to wear in my post baby wardrobe. I’m determined to get back to my pre-baby weight so I don’t want to invest in buying things that are bigger sizes than I used to be. Not to mention, I don’t know how things are going to fit exactly. Real moment here, your body changes after giving birth.
I still want to look cute for date nights. I still want to be wearing things that are on trend without investing a ton of money on sizes that I don’t plan on being in forever. This is exactly why I opted in for Rent the Runway’s Unlimited program. Currently, they are working on a maternity wear program. How genius is that? It would have completely come in handy during pregnancy! I’m still finding it to be my solution to the post baby wardrobe I’m needing during these months where I’m still losing weight.
RTR Unlimited Membership Info.
I thought about writing a post doing the pros and cons of the RTR Unlimited membership, but if I’m being honest, there are only pros. You get to pick 3 pieces at a time that get shipped to your house, wear them, return them, repeat as many times as you want to in a month. You don’t even have to wash them and the return package comes with a prepaid label! It’s just $139 a month. Think about how much you would spend on regular clothing in between sizes (not designer items). This would save a lot of money, plus who doesn’t feel good walking around in the latest designer pieces? Even if you aren’t dealing with a post baby wardrobe, the holidays are coming up and this is the perfect option to rent a different cocktail dress for each party you’ll have to go to! It’s actually where I rented this dress from our Christmas card photo last year!
