I have the luxury of growing my large belly in the summertime. (Often in triple digit temperatures;) Planning for this, I ventured out to find easy dresses to beat the heat. In most cases, I selected items that you could throw in the wash and simply hang-dry.
In addition to dresses, I bought oversized T’s, a pair of jean shorts, 2 pairs of maternity jeans, and a few tennis skirts and tank tops.
Here’s my list:
Asos dresses: You can’t go wrong, they often change their selection, they ship incredibly quick, and it is rare that a dress is over $60.
- Mamalicious Sweat Dress: $41
- Maternity Midi Rib Vest Dress: $33
- Long Sleeve Chambray Smock Dress: $57
- Jersey Maxi Dress: $36
- White Embroidered Cotton Shirt Dress: $52
Nordstrom Maternity: A little pricier, but a few great options for fit, with multiple color selections.
For maternity dresses, I also suggest TopShop. For non-maternity wear, I had success seeking out a few styles that worked. For me, I was able to find a few favorites at Anthropologie, Zara, Athleta and Madewell. Here I sought fitted tank dresses, maxi dresses and even flowy tops that were not maternity, but were easy to wear through the growing bump stages.
For your casual day-to-day wear: Here are my favorites:
