Summer Pregnancy Fashion

I found short stretchy dresses worked well on hot summer days when the thought of pulling on jeans or pants would be too exhausting especially as the belly was getting bigger!! Lucky for me Seraphine does wonderful comfy dresses that look good as well. Lets face it who wouldn’t want to look as good as Kate Middleton during her pregnancy, and thanks to Seraphine we can. Their dresses are great and they are totally affordable too!! The bonus is they are designed so that breast feeding is easily accessible, what more can you ask for! I have posted some of my favourite dresses from them. You can also browse other designs on their website www.seraphine.com They deliver internationally as well!!!

I also found long maxi dresses extremely comfortable for summer and they are great at hiding all the lumps and bumps during the later stages of pregnancy. Black maxi dresses are great at slimming one’s figure when you start to feel as big as a house, something I found I was feeling every second day as my due date drew closer. Fortunately with maxi dresses you can go two different ways, you can choose to buy maternity maxi dresses and ASOS does a range of affordable and very pretty maternity maxi dresses. Their website is www.asos.com and they ship to most countries worldwide

On the other hand you can purchase normal maxi dresses that flows over the belly. If this is your preferred option avoid tight fitting maxi dresses and go for a more loose fitting dress. The advantage of going with this option is that you can continue wearing these dresses post pregnancy. I love Modcloth dresses and their website is www.modcloth.com. They ship to Australia which is great. Here are some of my favourite styles from them

Love my stripes and the vertical stripes on this dress will give the illusion of height which is great.

Finally, you can’t go past a loose fitting top and leggings for those lazy days when you really just can’t be bothered and trust me these days are a regular occurrence when you are in your home stretch of pregnancy. But who saids you can’t look trendy with leggings. The key is the top and once again I turn to Seraphine for inspiration as they do tops that are fashionable and breast feeding friendly. Here are a few:
