Borrow for Your Bump

Drawing inspiration from popular retail rental websites like Rent the Runway and Bag Borrow or Steal, Borrow for Your Bump is the next big thing in maternity wear. Created solely for expecting mothers, BFYB is an online boutique that rents and sells designer maternity clothing.  During a pregnancy term, customers can grow, borrow and return clothing as many times as needed, without breaking the bank on expensive maternity clothes that they would otherwise outgrow.

BFYB is holding a launch party and fashion show with other vendors in Lincoln and Omaha on Saturday, November 26th. Hot Mama’s Night Out & BFYB Launch Party will take place at Dove Shannon, a salon located at 701 P Street #206 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
