Top Ten Summer Maternity Must-Haves

Colette Bouchez shares more must-have shopping information in Your Perfectly Pampered Pregnancy: Lingerie Shopping for the Mother-to-Be!.

8. Hats

Your hair undergoes changes that you never expect…and often will change between pregnancies as well. A hat is not only a great way to tame unruly hair, but gives you extra UV protection that your skin can always use. Even if it just a visor, the shade on your cheeks will help avoid unsightly darkening and sunburn.

9. Bags

Every woman needs a nice bag. Heck, I think it should be part of our Social Security allowances! A good bag will allow you to carry your needs with you, which may or may not include sunscreen, a snack, chap stick maybe an extra pad or two for that awesome leaking that started.

10. Tank Tops

Hands down, this is the pregnant girl's best friend. It doesn't matter if they are high cut, low cut, long or short. Whether worn alone, with a another tank, tee, sweater, or vest, it goes with everything. If you get a good one, you can even forgo a bra.

Everyone has to find their own sense of style during pregnancy but the beauty is a few key pieces can make a reasonable wardrobe for those hotter months! Got more ideas? Share them!
