I'm 7 Months Pregnant and Can't Stop Wearing These Breezy Maternity Dresses

I am 31 weeks pregnant, and it’s currently 90 degrees out. Anyone who has gone through pregnancy will know that these two figures are not exactly the best of pals. I already feel like a scorching furnace in the best of air-conditioned rooms thanks to an increase in blood volume, hormonal shifts, and metabolic changes. But add the sweltering summer heat to the mix and you can see why I really just want to be naked all the time. I have a full-time job, so sadly this is not an option. I have, however, come up with some cool and chic sartorial solutions to get me through my last few months of pregnancy in comfort and style.

First off, I have ditched my only two pairs of maternity jeans for a daily rotation of easy, breezy, and effortless dresses. Each one serves a purpose. This gorgeous Dôen frock (which is not maternity by the way, but parents-to-be love the brand) is perfect for easy-going warm-weather weekends. This silky navy ruffle dress and white tea dress are polished yet practical for long days at the office. And how about this très chic floral frock for evenings out or special occasions? Scroll below for the maternity dresses I’m living in this summer, and if you’re pregnant through this heat, I’m sending a never-ending abundance of cool air your way!

This pretty little broderie cotton tea dress not only keeps me cool in the sweltering summer heat, but it always garners a flood of compliments for its flattering silhouette and charming romantic details.

The pastel blue shade of this flowy, twist-front frock is striking (and looks great against sun-kissed skin). It skims the body in all the right places and is the perfect option to take you from work to weekend in style. Oh, and you can’t go wrong with the price.

I love the fact that this soft, lightweight, and silky dress looks and feels much more expensive than it actually is. It’s my go-to for dinner and drinks and is also ideal for a day at the office. The ruffle details are super pretty, and it looks super flattering on all body types.

If you follow Dôen’s Instagram, you’ll know the brand is loved by parents-to-be around the globe. While technically not a maternity brand, its easy and airy dresses are roomy enough for expecting mothers, while details such as smocking allow for breathability. This particular frock is made of soft cotton viscose and has a cute vintage-inspired floral print. You can also lower the sleeves to create an off-the-shoulder effect.

This floral-print maxi dress is perfect for everything from special summer soirées to evenings out. The neckline and ruffle straps are flirtatious, while the silhouette sculpts your figure just right. Just add some statement earrings and a pair of low block heels.

LWDs are definitely a winning staple throughout summer. This Ingrid & Isabel dress is swingy, soft, and really high quality. Unfortunately, it’s now sold out, but I’ve added a similar option below.
