If your baby’s due date is during the summertime, we feel you. It can get hot outside and be miserable, especially during those final months. With an approaching baby shower, finding the perfect summer baby shower dress that doesn’t make you feel overheated but instead makes you feel comfortable and gorgeous can be a challenge. You also have to consider what size your bump will be by the time your party rolls around.
We know that not all dresses are created equal. That’s why we’re rounding up the best and our favorite summer baby shower dresses that will fit your special occasion and make you feel beautiful. There’s something for everyone on this list.
Our Favorite Summer Baby Shower Dresses
For the Ethereal Mama
I absolutely love these options for late spring and early summer—or, if you don’t live in the hot-and-humid south, you could wear one of these dresses at any point and look like an actual pregnant goddess! You can easily add accessories, you don’t have to cross your ankles or legs the whole time thanks to the length, and they’re still casual enough to wear every day, so you don’t have to reserve them only for special occasions like your baby shower.

Have you been wearing heels and cute clothes throughout your pregnancy, and do you want to extend that style to your baby shower? A chic maternity dress can be rather difficult to come by, but these styles handle the call beautifully!

For the Budget-Savvy Mama
This is where I feel most at home—chatting fashion and being frugal. I’ve encouraged my BFF to buy only one or two special maternity dresses if she’s not planning to have lots of babes—or, pick a few of these gorgeous options for a fraction of the cost of the others! Though baby showers are such a special event in a pregnant mama’s life, you shouldn’t have to feel constrained by a formal gown or a generally uncomfortable ensemble. If you’re pregnant in the thick of the heat, the last thing you want is to be sweating and soaking through a nice dress. Instead, sweat through one of the adorable-and-budget-friendly options below!
Tie Back Ruched Bust Dress
Butterfly Sleeve Ruffle Hem Belted Dress
Lace Bell-Sleeve Dress
Midi ruffle dress
For Wearing Post-Pregnancy
Though so many of these amazing dresses don’t even look like a maternity dress, ruching and expanded torso areas often give them away without a belly to fill it out. These options below allow you to be comfortable and stylish, and many aren’t even *technically* maternity dresses.

The baby shower will be a hit regardless—but it won’t hurt to slay every photo you’re tagged in with one of these beauties, right?!
