Swimwear is the most dreaded item to shop for, but add pregnancy into the mix and it can be a real nightmare! To help you enjoy the sun a little this summer we’ve put together our top choices for chic swimwear for the mother-to-be.
Add a little 50’s flair with a retro inspired nautical tankini by Seraphine. The Nautical Striped Maternity Tankini features a feminine sweetheart neckline with a bow as well as panels on the side which are designed to help slim and flatter your figure. The best part of this tankini is you can keep it down for added modesty or pull it up to get a little sun.
BellaBlu’s Black and White Block Bandeau Maternity Swimsuit looks like the perfect summer dress. With a full skirt to help cover your growing baby bump and white trim it’s a great option for the stylish woman. Plus the suit comes with attachable straps if you need a little extra support.
Color blocking is always a good way to look stylish; however, a dark color on bottom with a lighter color on top helps balance out your body. Due Maternity’s Maternal America Eva Criss Cross Spaghetti Trim Tankini will leave you looking great and comfortable with built in cups and adjustable ties on the bottom.
Black has to be the most flattering color of all time. With it’s universal appeal it’s no surprise that black is the color of choice for Hollywood Celebs as well. Jump on the Star Studded trend and try out Seraphine’s Black Halterneck Maternity Bathing Suit. Worn by Kate Hudson, this suit will flatter your figure as it changes week by week. Glamorous and simple, this is a great option to wear while lounging around by the pool and sipping virgin piña coladas!
Just because you’re expecting doesn’t mean you can’t expect to wear fashionable clothing in the springtime! Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life and should be celebrated with clothing that highlights your ever-growing baby bump. Whether you’re prepping for pregnancy or going through it now, I hope you enjoy these maternity fashion picks that’ll make you glow even more!
A hot trend right now is floral fashions. There’s no better time to rock a cute floral print garment than this season. Even while pregnant you can find floral print looks to bloom while you’re blooming your baby. My floral find is this charming MAMA Jersey Top from H&M.com. The dark blue top features a colorful flower print design that gives an average tee-shirt look a chic update.
Summer dresses are the perfect light weight option for walking around town, lunch with friends, and running errands. They are soft, comfortable and come in maternity sizes as well.
Jessica Simpson’s Cap Sleeve Tie Detail Maternity Maxi Dress is a double whammy. Both comfortable and cute with a v-nck and a tie detail it’s sure to be one of your favorites!
Feel beautiful no matter how far along you are in your pregnancy with a high low dress. Motherhoood’s Strapless Empire Waist Maternity Dress comes in a flattering black and white stripe and shows just a little bit of leg.
Add a little color to your spring wardrobe with Rachel Pally’s Sleeveless Empire Waist Maternity Maxi Dress. In a jersey knit, this maxi dress screams spring with bold colors in a flattering print. Perfect for a garden party or brunch with friends.
While the last thing you may be thinking of during your pregnancy is heading out to sea, we love these nautical themed outfits. Wear them as the weather starts to warm up or throw on a great striped sweater with a pair of leggings or jeans now while it’s still a little cold.
A Navy and white striped sweater is perfect for layering on those chilly days, Splendid’s Long Sleeve Cascade Maternity would look great over a dress or a white tee. For example, try it over this great Hope Anchors the Soul Maternity t-shirt available at cafepress.com for a cute and inspiring outfit.
An anchor charm bracelet is a great way to add a touch of whimsy to a seafaring look. Try Alex and Ani’s Nautical Charm Bangle which represents hope, tranquility and stability. Alex and Ani recommend you wear the anchor charm for luck, courage, and safety all important sentiments for any mom-to-be.
If you’re now eating for two, you should dress for two as well. Don’t embarrass your future son or daughter just because it’s getting cold. With so many cute sweater dresses on the market, you have no excuse not to be cozy and stylish.
A scoop neck fitted sweater dress is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. It’s simple and effortless; just throw it on and head out the door. We love the olive green Long Sleeve Maternity Sweater Dress available at A Pea in the Pod.
Furthermore, make it a mixed and playful ensemble with a pair of shoes from Ash Footwear, something like these plantine ankle boots!
A soft luxurious cashmere dress feels great when the weather takes a turn for the worst. Mallory Cashmere Maternity Sweater Dress by Maternal America is a great option for meeting some friends for lunch or a day running errands. Featuring a flared skirt and long sleeves, this dress is great for all pregnant ladies, no matter your body type.
Loft’s Maternity Pearlized Collar Sleeveless Sweater Dress may not be the warmest option but it’s a great knit for any occasion. Make it warmer by adding a great structured jacket and some super soft tights.
With so many stylish winter dresses available there’s no reason not to look amazing this Christmas even if you’re expecting.
Add a pop of color to your look with a gorgeous burgundy lace dress. With 3/4 length sleeves and knee length hem you’re bound to feel sophisticated and very chic. This burgundy lace maternity dress recently caught my eye at pinkblushmaternity.com. Especially with this shade of dark red, take out the gold rings or necklaces you got (or maybe pick up something new from my new favorite designer jewelry, Benna) and go to town with impunity!
If you want to look good from week 1 to week 40 of your pregnancy, just stick with a few simple rules and you’ll feel a million bucks!
