“It was when I was pregnant and had two eminent family weddings that I thought of Style My Bump.”

While Geraldine Poff was still heavily pregnant she managed to give birth to the idea of a fashion facility for pregnant women.

Finding it difficult and expensive to appropriately dress her bump, she nurtured her idea until it can now walk and talk.

“We are a occasion maternity dress hire business based in Cork and Kerry. In the next two weeks I hope to go online with a website that you can order and view the dresses on.

“The idea is that Geraldine and her assistant Lisa who resides in Inishannon, come to you. In the comfort of your own home you can leaf through the various designer dresses they stock and choose one that suits you.

“We only give our customers good quality and comfortable dresses. The brands that we deal with are Tiffany Rose and Pichu to name a few.

“Our sizes range from an 8 to an 18. We’re expanding our range all the time and you can view the dresses on our Facebook page, “Style My Bump.”

At an affordable €50 – €70  for a four day hire, this is something that I wish I could avail of.

It can’t get much easier dressing for a wedding when you’re pregnant with Style My Bump.

It’s unfair on us “unpregnant” people who have to trawl through rail upon rail, eventually settling on something we will never wear again as everybody who’s at this cousins/friend’s wedding will be at the next cousins/friends wedding and it’s back to rail one.

But hopefully someday Geraldine will be able to call to every door and dress the bumpless also.

To book, call Geraldine Poff on 087 2376818 and receive your second hire for €35.
