Finding good maternity wear can be a struggle (read our exhaustive guide to the best maternity brands available in Ireland here), so it’s not surprising that buying maternity clothing for summer brings its own set of challenges. While most of us don’t want to spend a fortune on maternity-specific clothes, preferring to invest in pieces that can be worn both before and after pregnancy, there are some pieces that remain essentials: swimwear, nursing-friendly tank tops, and a comfortable pair of shorts are all good to have in your summer dressing artillery. However, if you’re looking for pieces with versatility then opt for dresses. A word to the wise: shirt style maxi dresses, such as the below striped dress by Josephine, are a veritable wardrobe workhorse: most come in breathable cotton or linen fabrics which are great for keeping cool, while the shape allows for an expanding bump, plus they’ve got range – post-pregnancy they can be cinched with a belt or or worn as is. When it comes to swimwear, Hunza G pieces are expensive, but the brand claims that its one-size-fits all swimsuits will stretch and mould to your body as it changes so they can work for pregnancy and beyond. As for footwear? Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals are a consistent go-to for their supportive cork footbed and adjustable straps. Shop a selection of summer maternity wear below.
