Finding the right clothes to make you look and feel your best during pregnancy can be a challenge, especially when you’re super pregnant in those warm summer months. But even though you have to deal with the hot weather while being 9 months pregnant, the benefit of being pregnant in the summer is that you don’t have to worry too much about maternity jeans and bottoms. As you can see from the pictures below, dresses, dresses and more dresses are maternity staples in the summer.
The three dress styles that are best for summer pregnancy are empire waist dresses, trapeze/swing dresses, or fitted cotton or jersey dresses. These styles work well in every length, are comfortable, and are sure to accommodate a growing bump. But you need to keep a few things in your mind…
- Your belly may end up making shorter dresses too short so either have some alternative options when you can no longer wear those or opt for something slightly longer so you can wear it all the way through the end.
- Keep in mind material and fit.
When it comes to pants, you don’t have to be the person that lives in leggings, even though leggings are great and you definitely need a comfy pair for your pregnancy. One or two pairs of jeans are enough, because, if you’re pregnant during the summer, you probably won’t be wearing jeans all that much so you don’t need a ton of options. But, if you’re a denim and pants type of girl, be sure you find bottoms with the right belly support. It can make all the difference in your comfort level throughout the day! Look for pants with a wide band with strong supportive fabric that won’t irritate your skin.
Many women opt for monochromatic as soon as they start showing, but don’t be afraid to play with patterns, floral print, and bright colors! You can wear these pieces just as you could before you were pregnant—it’s less about the colors and more about fit.
