The top 10 linen pieces for a stylish summer pregnancy

Last Updated:

Being pregnant in summer is uncomfortable and it’s surprisingly hard to dress for. Worse still, the types of looks that keep you comfortable tend to be really unattractive and unflattering, which is the absolute worst when you’re already feeling overheated and huge. Until now! Ladies of 2023, rejoice. Because the hottest styles for summer 2023 also happen to be made from the most elevated and timeless fabric: linen.

Linen has been cherished for ages for its softness, durability, and versatility. When it comes to pregnancy clothing, linen is a really popular choice. It’s a natural fibre that’s hardy and long-lasting, making it the perfect choice for creating timeless and versatile clothing worn in both seasons. The best part is that linen clothes aren’t just stylish, but also comfy, breathable, and eco-friendly. 

Here are some reasons why linen’s perfect for modern mamas:

  • It’s durable: Linen withstands everyday wear and tear and is fairly wrinkle-resistant. It looks great when it’s a little crinkled and requires minimal ironing.
  • It’s breathable: Linen keeps you cool and comfy in hot weather and wicks away moisture, keeping you dry. So good for summer!
  • It’s versatile: Linen can be dressed up or down for any occasion, and it’s machine-washable for easy care. It’s super on trend right now and isn’t going anywhere.
  • It’s eco-friendly: Linen’s grown and processed without harmful chemicals and is a renewable resource. Hooray!
  • Affordable: There are some great affordable linen clothes choices out there and they’re 100% linen too.

With its enduring style and durability, linen’s a fabric that’ll never go out of fashion. We’re loving the latest best linen clothes from our fave brands, white linen clothes are an absolute breath of fresh air for summer pregnancy outfits. Whether you’re looking for a flowy dress for a warm summer day or a breezy blouse for the office, you can’t go wrong with linen basics in an amazing fabric and modern tones. 

The Mama Style is best place to buy linen clothes from a range of regular and maternity specific brands. Check out our bestselling linen pieces below.
