7 Plus Size Maxi Maternity Dresses to Love For Summer

Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are a go-to fashion staple for most all pregnant moms in summer months because they look great throughout all three trimesters, do much to flatter curves and growing bellies, and are so versatile. With plus sized pregnant moms in mind, we’re sharing our top 7 picks for maxi dresses that are perfect for the summer months.

1.    Plus Size Short Sleeve Stretch Fabric Maternity Maxi Dress


Do lunch in this ever-versatile and chic, jersey knit maxi dress by Motherhood Maternity. Available in three sizes, this dress is affordable and super cute. Motherhood Maternity, $44.98.

2.    Color Blocked Maxi


Color blocking is huge this season! Huge! And that’s why this trendy maxi by Forever 21 is a winner in my book. It’s not a maternity dress, per se. But it works for pregnant moms with its very forgiving waist line. Forever 21. $22.80.
3.    Michael Kors Plus Sized, One Shoulder Maxi Dress

Here’s another winner that debunks the myth that when pregnant, women should only buy maternity. Instead, look for hemlines and waist lines that can accommodate your growing belly, like this one.  Macy’s, $140.
4.    Maternity Print Maxi Dress


Go for prints and length with this stunning maxi dress by Simply Be. Simply Be, $62.50.
5.    Soprano Plus Sized Maxi Dress

Here’s another non-maternity, plus sized maxi that I love for its beautiful ruching and very accommodating empire waist. Macy’s, $60.
6.    Maternity Tank Maxi Dress


What’s not to love about a little black maxi dress? We love the length of this dress and that it’s a tank, which means it can be easily paired with jackets and shawls for a dressier or more casual look from day to night.  Old Navy, $32.


7.    Kimono Maxi Dress


Oh, the wonders of a good maxi. While tee and tank styles are most popular this year, the kimono is also making waves among pregnant moms looking for something a bit more creative. Jessica London, $59.99-$64.99.
