The best maternity dresses to beat the heat!
We have to admit, we may get a little too excited thinking about summer fashion: There’s open-toed shoes, loose flowing dresses, denim cut-offs and, of course, bathing suits! But when you’re pregnant, wearing less does not always equal more.
In fact, thinking about navigating the second or third trimester in the heat and having to cram our bellies into shorts is just not something we’re into. Summertime can be one of the most uncomfortable seasons for pregnant women, which is why many opt for dresses instead of pants or shorts in the summer.
Dresses keep us cool and comfortable, plus we can dress them up or down with the right accessories and shoes. With ever-changing trends, we rounded up the 14 best summer maternity dresses that will stay in style all year. Whether you’re heading to the beach, a wedding or your own baby shower, we’ve got the perfect dress for every occasion. Check them out below.
