Expectant mamas cannot be expected to sit inside all Summer while awaiting their lil one's arrival. With Memorial Day weekend upon us, and the beach and pool season set to begin, moms-to-be can prepare themselves for the sun, surf, and sand with a wardrobe of shore-inspired essentials.
Though 47 percent of LilSugar readers and many pregnant celebrities have opted to bare their bellies while frolicking in the sun, many women opt to cover up. Maxi dresses, like the strapless, striped one here ($275), keep a growing bump stylishly covered and ready to go straight to dinner from the pool. Smocked tops and tunics also do the job and can easily be transitioned for everyday use. Check out these picks – and some hot maternity bathing suits – to kick your Summer off right.
