No, summer is not quite over yet. Especially if you're pregnant.
While fashion editors and influencers might already be talking about how to layer for fall, it's 110 degrees in California and in the mid-80s in New Jersey, so no, summer's not quite over yet. And if you're thinking It's too hot to be this pregnant, I get it.
While I'm not currently pregnant, I still vividly remember the discomfort and sweat that comes with these hot and sticky late summer days. Pregnant mamas everywhere are probably wondering how they're going to get through these next few weeks feeling comfortable + cool.
Well, I've got you covered. Here are my favorite things to wear when you're pregnant and it's too hot to wear clothes.
Who needs pants? I think if you're staying home and no public eyes are peeking, this t-shirt and some underwear are all you need to stay cool, mama. It's super soft and flowy, so it won't stick to your skin.
"Effortless" is my wardrobe mantra, and this dress makes it so easy to look good. I love the racerback style and the asymmetrical hem just adds a little something that brings the whole look up a notch.
If you have no choice but to leave your house and must dress up (ugggh) this one is a gamechanger. It has pockets(!) and the perfect pleat that helps the dress drape beautifully right over your baby bump. (Psst, I love this one for postpartum, too.)
If sleeves on a dress still feel like too much fabric, I love this stylish elevated version of a tank dress, perfect in LBD form.
I love this tank for a few reasons—the leopard print! The two tier style!—but my favorite reason is that this is just super breathable. The best part is that it will last you well into postpartum. It has a mesh nursing layer for easy access to the ladies if you decide to breastfeed. Pair it with my favorite shorts, below.
When I was pregnant, I didn't feel comfortable in short shorts, so Bermuda shorts were my go-to cut. Love this one because it has a full belly panel and just the right amount of distressing.
When it's too hot to think this t-shirt dress comes to the rescue. It's a V-neck, which is endlessly flattering, stretchy made with both lycra and cotton, and it has cute enough detailing that people will think it took way more effort than it actually did to get dressed.
No joke, but the name alone makes me want this for any pregnant friend this summer. It's wire-free, super soft and has a comfortable scoop neck. I love pairing it with the panties below.
A good pair of underwear is high on my comfort list in general, but even better when they have a hidden bonus. This underwear has built-in leak protection and is super breathable and anti-microbial. Grab one for every day of the week.
When it's hot and your feet are swollen, you need a comfy pair of sandals that require no effort but still look good. That's why I love these leather sandals with crisscross styling. The cork design and the slight platform give you a little boost when you need it, mama.
