The best maternity brands for pregnant women this summer

Including the Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to brand...

Abigail Malbon

If you’re pregnant right now, there’s a good chance you’re desperately searching for some summer clothes to wear before the temperature gets hotter. Dressing a growing bump is notoriously difficult in the summertime, but luckily there are plenty of maternity brands making clothes that you’ll actually want to wear now - plus, smock dresses are totally fashionable again! Here’s where you should head for the best summer maternity clothes...

ASOS

ASOS has possibly one of the largest maternity collection 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.

Seraphine

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. You’ll pay a little more, but the clothes are beautifully made and perfect for smarter occasions.
