One of the best things about being pregnant in the summer? Flaunting that awesome preggo bod and not stressing about a couple extra lumps and bumps. Seriously. Pregnancy is the one time in a woman’s life when people will tell you how fantastic you look and they’re not just saying it—they mean it. Especially as my pregnancy wore on and jeans started getting tighter and tighter, wearing cute summer dresses was my favorite way to feel flirty and feminine.
It’s not always easy to find cute maternity dresses for summer that don’t sacrifice style or comfort, but they are out there and we found them. Uncompromisingly chic, yet still comfortable and flattering, these are the best maternity dresses to get you through the summer. A few tips? Look for dresses made of “breathable” materials like cotton jersey or lycra, and don’t be afraid to try styles similar to what you wore before you were pregnant.
Check out this list of super cute maternity dresses for summer—from maxis and midis to tanks and T-shirt dresses—with price points to fit every budget. No frumpy frocks here (I promise). Check them out in the slideshow.
