Yes I absolutely would. I am a minimalist. I hate clutter and go through my closet frequently to donate things. I would be such a blessing if instead of regretting money I am giving away I could simply mail it back!

Before Iwas pregnant, I remember hearing about rent the runway and signed up just to check it out. I am considered plus-sized at normal size of 14 and that site catered to like sizes 0-6, so I was pretty put off by that. Ifthey had a variety ofsizes...maybe.

Assuming it's affordable, absolutely.

I don't think I would. I'm not big on sharing clothes, except maybe with good friends. I had a friend last pregnancy who let me borrow her maternity clothes and that was great! This time I'm just trying to pick up inexpensive pieces that I will sell/give away once I'm done.

I would consider renting some clothes, but for the most part I can purchase clothes that will take me through practically my entire pregnancy and several months postpartum (love the adjustable waist bands) for less.
