Facing summer with a baby on the way is not usually an exciting prospect, you’re hot, uncomfortable and swelling when everyone else is getting ready for bikini season. But dressing for a summer pregnancy doesn’t have to be frustrating, new maternity clothing is more exciting and attractive than it has been in years past.

Even maternity swimsuits have changed and now offer pregnant women a way to enjoy the beach and water without feeling like a beached whale or covering up in the dreaded muumuu.

So for summer maternity looks find separates that are versatile. In maternity tops you’ll want to look for simple tank tops that you can layer under looser shirts or you can wear alone when the weather or you are too hot. Select a bright solid color that’s exciting and complements your newly glowing skin tone.

For summer bottoms a good maternity skirt or two is really a lifesaver because of the comfort and the breathability of the cut. Look for a neutral that can be worn with a variety of different tops.

Maternity dresses are another comfortable option. Select something solid with a bright color and a bit of architectural flair, such as a ruffle, faux flower or perhaps an asymmetrical cut. These structural elements draw attention away from your belly and other growing bits and bring the attention to the overall look.

With the right clothing a pregnant woman can enjoy the summer months and alleviate her discomfort.
