Stylish Maternity Dresses for Summer

When I was pregnant, I tried to stay away from clothing labeled “maternity” for as long as possible and I managed to get through my pregnancy only buying maternity pants and tees (I needed the extra length around month 8). I was fortunate enough to not be pregnant during the summer, but I feel for the ladies who are carrying extra weight during the hot months.  Fortunately, one of the big summer trends – maxi dresses – work perfectly for pregnant silhouettes and you don’t have to buy a “maternity” dress.  Whether going on vacation, going to a formal event or just going out on the weekend, there are lots of pretty options for mamas-to-be.

When you’re looking for a dress here are some things to keep in mind:

(1) empire waists are flattering on a pregnant body;

(2) maxi dresses work well, are on trend and don’t necessarily need to be “maternty” – just make sure you have enough length in front;

(3) stay away from crazy prints – stripes may be better for the second trimester maybe not for the third trimester;

(4) draw attention up to your face and (growing) bosom with interesting necklines and jewelery; and

(5) be comfortable! You’ve got so much going on making you uncomfortable – don’t add to it with your clothing and accessories.

I looked online and found lots of options – here are some of my favorites…
