How we work

Belle of the Bump wants you to look great for your special event. And we want to make your maternity dress hire experience as simple and stress-free as possible.


Peruse our collection online or make an appointment to come and try on a selection of our frocks.


We offer a range of cocktail and more casual dresses and gowns for all occasions and stock popular maternity brands, including Tiffany Rose, Coven & Co, Hazel & Folk, Co & Ry, Isabella Oliver, Seraphine and Ripe.


Dresses are available for hire in sizes from 8 to 20 in a range of fabrics and styles to flatter your individual shape, personality and baby bump, whatever the occasion.


Our prices are for a four-day hire – the first day being the day you collect your dress and the fourth day being the day it is to be returned. Longer hire periods can be negotiated for an additional fee.






We base our hire prices on a percentage of the recommended retail price (RRP) of each garment plus a laundering fee. Each customer is also required to pay a $50 bond, which is fully refundable once the dress is returned in good condition. Payment is taken on the day of collection and all dresses are subject to availability.


When you’re done, just deliver the dress back to us and we’ll handle the dry-cleaning for you.


While we ask that you take care of your dress, our hire fees do cover minor accidental damage so you will not be charged for minor stains that come out in out during dry-cleaning. However, you are not covered for loss, serious damage or neglect and we reserve the right to retain part or all of the bond to cover tailoring fees or to replace the dress, if required.


It is important you return your dress on time so other Belle of the Bump customers are not left without a dress to wear for their special occasion. Late fees will apply. Unfortunately we cannot deliver.
