Summer is here and now is the perfect time to expand your maternity wardrobe. Dressing a growing bump is notoriously difficult in the heat, but luckily there are plenty of maternity brands making incredible clothes that fit pregnant ladies and we have rounded up high street looks from M&S, Mango, H&M and more.

Most of these looks can be worn post-birth too! Here's where you should head for the best summer maternity clothes including swimsuits and dresses...


ASOS has possibly one of the largest maternity collections on the high street, and the offering is incredible. Forget elasticated waistbands and baggy t-shirts; here you can shop everything from summer dresses to chic jackets and bikinis. There’s also a great selection from brands, such as Chi Chi London and the North Face.

The Duchess of Cambridge loves this designer and has done ever since she was first pictured wearing a wrap dress from the brand during her pregnancy with Prince George. The clothes are beautifully made and perfect for smarter occasions.

Meghan Markle turned to H&M’s MAMA range when she was carrying baby Archie, so you know this is the place to get quality clothes at high street prices. We love this dress with floral print and ruffle detail.

It may be a small selection, but Mango has some great options in maternity denim exclusively available on their website. Dungarees are the perfect transitional item from spring to summer, and these are super easy to style around your bump.

You can always rely on Marks & Spencer for good quality basics, and their maternity range is no different. We love this denim shirt, but they also have a great selection of maternity jeans and Breton tops.
