BUMP-FRIENDLY SUMMER FASHION
Wow, I can’t believe I am in my 39th week of pregnancy! This time has flown by. As ready as I am to meet our boy, I’m trying to savor these last few days of just the two of us.
I originally purchased these items with postpartum in mind, but since baby boy has decided not to make an appearance yet I thought I’d try them with the bump and was pleasantly surprised! If you aren’t wanting to spend a fortune on cute maternity/postpartum-friendly clothes, I recommend looking on Walmart’s website. If you haven’t browsed Walmart’s fashion section lately, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! They now offer a wide range of styles and price ranges from everyday classics like Scoop (a personal favorite) to premium brands like Circus by Sam Edelman. Some of my most-worn sandals and accessories last summer were from Walmart. They also have a maternity section, and Time & Tru maternity tees have been a staple for my third trimester!
For ease of returns and exchanges, I recommend filtering by retailer and clicking ‘Walmart.’ This prevents ordering from third party retailers and ensures all packages will come directly from Walmart. I also recommend shopping online versus in-store as they have a much more extensive clothing selection online.
Below are a few bump-friendly styles that I’m currently loving! If I had to pick a top favorite, it would have to be this gold maxi dress. It is absolutely beautiful and looks like a higher end piece, but is actually under $50. I can already tell I’ll be wearing this one on repeat this summer because it’s so soft and flattering. I also love the relaxed boho style. A few other favorites are this v-neck maxi (a great casual baby shower dress option) and this tiered midi dress. I have found this brand to run on the larger side so I stuck with my true size XS in all of these.
