Maternity Clothing for Hot Summer Days
If the summers in your area are anything like ours, they’re hot and humid. So no matter how you feel about pregnancy, it’s important to find clothing that will keep you cool and comfortable as the months go by.
- What to wear: dresses or maxi skirts with a tank top underneath for coverage; loose-fitting tops paired with shorts or jeans; flowy skirts paired with a t-shirt or blouse
- What not to wear: tight clothing around the waistline (makes the bump look bigger) or clothes that restrict movement in any way (dresses that have no stretch, bulky tops that make getting up difficult) – Out
What to Wear When You’re Pregnant in the Heat
Summer is the perfect time of year to dress your baby bump in cute summer outfits. Here are some easy style tips for pregnant women who want to look their best during this warm season.
- Wear a skirt! It’s hot, and skirts help keep you cool by letting air flow around your body.
- Cover up your legs on hot days with shorts, leggings, or even knee-high socks – these will help keep you from overheating.
- Try maternity dresses that offer an empire waistline so they don’t fall when you’re sitting down or bending over (this can happen because of the weight gain).
- Choose lightweight fabrics like cotton, linen, rayon, and silk, which will be more breathable.
When it comes to dressing during the summer months, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you’re pregnant. For starters, it’s essential to dress for your current state of pregnancy. It might be tempting to wear just about anything when you know this will be your last season of being pregnant, but now is not the time to take any risks with clothing that could potentially cause harm or discomfort. Additionally, if you’re at a point where your maternity clothes are no longer fitting comfortably, and your regular clothes don’t work either due to weight gain or size fluctuations caused by hormones – then investing in some new pieces for summertime is critical. Finally, as always – comfort should trump all other considerations.
