Summer Maternity Clothes for the Expectant Mother
Congratulations, you’re having a baby! If you’re starting to show and you’ve got that special glow, it’s time to start thinking about revamping your wardrobe to show off your bump this summer. The temperatures are high and summertime is in full swing. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that sweltering summer heat, hormones and a blooming belly can make for one hot mama.
To help you stay cool and stylish, we’ve put together a summer maternity clothes guide for expectant mothers.
Take a stroll through the maternity sections of your favorite stores
You may be surprised to discover that some of your favorite stores have a clothing line dedicated to maternity wear. That’s right! Brands like Nordstrom
have fashionable styles designed exclusively for expectant mothers.
And in case you haven't heard, A Pea in a Pod will be opening at Easton this fall! Featuring a curated selection of extraordinary styles and exclusive designer labels for moms-to-be, your 40 weeks will be nothing short of chic.
Start with the basics
Trust us when we say basics will be your best friend! You’d be surprised how many ways you can wear a simple scoop neck tee and a basic tank top. Mix and match different colors, prints
and patterns to keep your wardrobe looking fun and fresh.
Dresses are delightful
Empire-waist dresses are perfect for the expectant mother. Not only does the waistline accommodate for an expanding midsection, it accentuates your bump in the best way possible. While your little bundle of joy continues to grow, empire-waist dresses will reveal your inner glow.
Be free in a great pair of capris
Instead of investing in an expensive pair of full-length maternity jeans, opt for a cute pair of capris instead. If you can’t stand the thought of wearing denim of any sort, look for lightweight cotton cargo pants or a comfortable pair of silky bohemian bottoms.
Don’t forget to accessorize
Accessories are a great way to add a little extra pizzazz to your pregnancy wardrobe. Pair a basic tank with a colorful kimono or a silky scarf, and add some sparkle with a statement piece of jewelry. In need of some inspiration? Be sure to stop by Kendra Scott

Trade in your stilettos for something more comfortable
Although flip-flops are synonymous with summer and flats can be functional, they don’t provide a lot of cushion or support for swollen ankles. Look for sandals with thicker straps and lots of support—think chunky wedges and cushiony Keds. We highly recommend checking out Clarks and Total Comfort Shoes
Trust us, your feet will thank you later!
Invest in a great maternity swimsuit
When the weather gets hot, there’s nothing better than cooling off at the pool. Just make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen
and bring your cover up! Whether you’re all about showing off your new bump in a bikini,
or looking for a more modest, yet stylish, bathing suit, maternity swimwear has come a long way over the years. From trendy tankinis to slimming one-piece swimsuits, you’re sure to find something that’s just your style.
Above all, don’t sacrifice your personal style
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal style. As you grow into your new figure, embrace your body and wear whatever clothing makes you feel great.
