A summer pregnancy means two things—staying cool and looking cool. Our pick for checking those boxes this summer? The Uptown Dress from the Stowaway Collection Maternity.

The cotton stretch blend is lightweight and soft, which will keep you and your bump comfortable all summer long (because, trust us, you are not going to want to take this off). And we love the form-fitting, sleek style with flattering ruching—plus the three gorgeous colors it comes in: coral, lavender and salmon—takes care of the 'keeping you in style' part. 😉

Who better to trust on the *one* maternity dress you must own than a mother-daughter duo who created this dress themselves with an expanding bump in mind?

Stephanie and Debbie started designing their signature maternity wear after an unsuccessful shopping spree in traditional retail stores when Stephanie was pregnant. She wanted to feel beautiful— and still like herself —but wasn't finding much that fit the bill. So they created a thoughtful line of clothing for the pregnant and postpartum mama with simplicity, beauty and affordability top of mind.

Simply put, this is the maternity piece you simply can't go wrong with during the biggest transition of your life. And while we believe a bump looks great in anything, we can't deny the extra pizazz this super sweet bump-hugging beauty gives any bump, anytime.
