Summer is almost here which means outdoor activities and fun in the sun! However, if you are pregnant you need to think about what will keep you cool and comfortable while also looking stylish and feeling good. We have created this list of the best summer clothes and accessories as we head into summer.

Choosing The Right Fabrics

What fabric you wear is important because some are much more comfortable than others, especially if you’re pregnant in the summer. You’ll want to choose something that’s not too heavy and ideally moisture wicking to help you stay dry and cool.

Essential Summer Maternity Wardrobe Pieces

  • Maxi dresses⎯These dresses are great in warmer weather because they’re comfy and can hide swollen ankles and will look stylish with ballet pumps or flip flops.
  • Comfortable bra⎯The Larken X, an all-in-one nursing and hands-free pumping bra is wire-free with relaxed support, moisture wicking and won’t stick to your sensitive skin so you can stay cool and dry day and night.
  • Swimsuits⎯A maternity swimsuit offers enhanced comfort and support, particularly around the belly and bust areas. Swimsuits with adjustable straps, built-in bras, and ruched sides can accommodate your growing body while providing necessary support. 
  • Swim cover-ups⎯Throw a swim cover-up over swimwear, shorts, or leggings and you’ll have a chic outfit that covers your bump without feeling constricted or uncomfortable.
  • Tank top⎯A maternity tank top offers the perfect combination of softness and stretch for pregnancy. For active moms-to-be, it's stretchy, cool, and form-flattering so you'll be comfortable all day.
  • Leggings⎯Soft high-waisted leggings are what you’ll want to live in! Find ones that have the right amount of stretch and aren’t uncomfortable over your bump. Pair it with a tank top or under a maxi dress.
