3 Maternity Holiday Outfits

I’ve been pregnant over three Christmases in my lifetime. The first and third pregnancies I battled severe morning sickness and my second pregnancy, I experienced swelling and exhaustion as I entered my third trimester.

So I know a thing or two about dressing for summer when you’re pregnant.

I really enjoyed wearing stylish maternity outfits that showed off my bump. On Christmas day I would opt for a dress with an empire line. One year I wore a jumpsuit and I swore I’d never wear one again because it was a hassle having to get undressed to go to the toilet. And when you’re pregnant, you visit the toilet often.

With that in mind, I’ve created 3 maternity holiday outfits to wear this summer. Some of these outfits can be worn post-pregnancy if you choose to breastfeed.

1. Maternity Outfit One: The Tee Dress

A tee dress is effortlessly stylish. Easy to style with sandals or canvas sneakers. If your feet a prone to swelling like mine were over summer, opt for a pair of Birkenstocks as they won’t restrict your ankles.

2. Maternity Outfit Two: Pants and Top

Pants are always a comfortable option when you’re pregnant and they can hide your swelling cankles. This outfit would be great for Christmas day. A cross-over empire line top accentuates a baby bump and offers a post-pregnancy clothing option for breastfeeding.

3. Maternity Outfit three: Off the Shoulder Dress

Off the shoulder dresses a big trend this season. Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t follow the trends. This gorgeous teal OTS dress would make a stunning statement for a Christmas party. Opt for black heels if you want to dress it up.
