As a mom to August and September babies, I can attest that maternity dresses are a pregnant person’s best friend throughout the summer months. Not only do they allow air to circulate, but they seem to be brought together with virtually no effort.
After a year of dingy sweatpants and t-shirts, it’s exciting to be wearing real clothes again. What if you shake a bump this summer? You’re lucky. There is an endless supply of summer maternity clothes that will keep you cool even when it’s a million degrees.
That said, it’s hard to justify spending too much on a wardrobe that only lasts one season. What should a mom do who cares about her budget but about her fashion? Head to Target of course.
We’ve scoured the aisles (in a digital sense, anyway) to find Target’s best summer maternity dresses. Whether you are looking for something to wear for your baby shower or maternity shoot, a backyard barbecue or a beach vacation, these cute and comfy dresses have you covered.
Temperatures can be outsized, but a stylish black dress is always on the menu. This elegant number with floating sleeves is perfect for dressy and even casual occasions because you can easily dress it up and down. A self-tie waist accentuates that gorg bump and a modest V-neck adds sensuality with the overflow. Rock it, mom. (Reviewers note that it’s big, you might want to downsize.)
Tie-dye had a moment. Honestly, at this point, let’s just say he’s back in action and isn’t going away anytime soon. Get on board (or add to your collection) with this soft cotton essential. It’s beach, brunch and garden ready with a maxi length that pairs perfectly with sandals or sneakers.
This light and airy tiered maxi practically begs you to sit and sip lemonade in the shade. The cheerful yellow undertone and tied shoulders are perfect for those summer days when you can barely stand up to get dressed, but do it and look fabulous anyway.

We love every detail of this sophisticated dress. From the flattering crossover neckline and short sleeves to the comfy smocked waist and subtle, high hemline, it is sure to become a summer nighttime favorite.
Classic perfection – and it has pockets! This super cute striped dress with boat neck and three quarter sleeves is the definition of easy style. We love it with a pair of cool white sneakers, but some comfy Birks work, too.
