Summer Fashion for Pregnant Mamas: Staying Cool and Stylish

The heat and humidity of summer can make dressing while pregnant more frustrating. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to stay cool, comfortable, and stylish as you navigate the warmer months with your baby bump. Here are some favorite summer fashion tips for pregnant women this year.

Opt for breathable fabrics

Choose breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, and lightweight knits to stay cool and comfortable. 

Embrace Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are a pregnant woman’s best friend during summer. They offer both comfort and style, accommodating your growing bump while keeping you cool. Look for dresses with empire waistlines that provide ample space for your belly.

Choose Supportive Swimwear

With the heat, you may be planning to hit the beach or pool, look for swimsuits that offer good bust support and have adjustable straps. Tankinis and one-piece swimsuits with ruching around the belly area are both flattering and comfortable.
