Accessorize the look with stacked peep-toe sandals. The three-quarter-length sleeves and peplum empire waist add a touch of understated glam, while the pleated skirt is party-ready whenever you are!
Keep in mind that your bump will hike up the hemline several inches, so it's best to save dresses that are knee-length or shorter 'til next summer. Form-fitting dresses in bold patterns. A bump-hugging dress in a funky, floral print might seem fun in early June, but a few weeks later, you'll probably be sick of both the clingy fit and the look-at-me pattern.
Lightweight, cropped maternity pants. Think cotton or linen in a capri length that lets the breeze brush your legs. Opt for styles with a narrow stretchy panel up top — the kind that rides under your belly — rather than a panel that hikes over your bump they're binding and hot.
A touch of spandex less than 10 percent will help the pants hold their shape, but anything more will render the fabric stifling and make you feel like a sausage.
Skirts and shorts with stretchy or drawstring waistbands. Bottoms that used to rest closer to your waist might still be wearable if they can sit comfortably under your bump. Pair them with a tailored or fitted top to keep your outfit from looking too tent-like. While these might be a must-have for cold-weather moms-to-be, the last thing you'll want to wear in August is bump-to-ankle denim. Your current underwear could probably accommodate your growing assets over all nine months.
But you'll likely be bummed post-delivery when you're left with a collection of stretched-out panties. Rather than ruin your stuff, invest in a week's worth of inexpensive cotton underwear a size bigger than you usually wear. Drawstring pajama and exercise bottoms. No need to get special jammies when you're expecting.
Loose-fitting sleep shorts and pants or maybe your hubby's boxers will probably still be comfy if you wear them below your belly. Your current workout pants will likely last for as many months as you feel like working out , too, as long as you can loosen that drawstring when you need to. A brand-new bra collection. The tender, burgeoning breasts of your first trimester might tempt you to buy a whole new batch of bras, but once the soreness fades usually within a month or two you can probably make do with your usual bras and a set of strap extenders.
Your boob size might fluctuate more than once over the course of your pregnancy, so if you do go up a size, just buy one or two bras. Remember, you'll need nursing bras in just a few months, so save your bucks for those. Extra-long tank tops and T-shirts. Nothing says summer like a lineup of pretty white dresses.
