10 Maternity Must-Haves for Summer 2021

by Bailey Bouwman

Nest & Sprout Maternity is preparing for something incredibly exciting in October 2021. To make that happen, we first need to soak in the delightful days of summer. Dressing for a summer pregnancy can be challenging because of hot flashes, changing weather, and that general sense of uncomfortableness from the bloat, swelling feet, and growing baby inside you. Did I just make pregnancy sound terrible? It’s not that bad, you can pull out a plastic pool, grab a slushie, and just put your feet out.

Building a Spring Maternity Wardrobe

To make it through the summer months, it’s key you invest in a few essentials. Nest & Sprout Maternity strongly believes that right clothes can make you feel incredible and help give you back that important spark in your life. Build your summer wardrobe by investing in at least one pair of maternity shorts, and a few comfortable dresses. Everything else is nice-to have. The best thing about most maternity clothes is they are adaptable and accessible for the post partum period. And for many of us, we’ll continue to wear our maternity shorts for years to come as our bodies change and adapt. We know that Canadian summers are short. It might just be 8-12 weeks of warm enough of shorts. When your done with your summer maternity clothes, touch base with us to consign. Our maternity consignment continues to grow as we ship maternity wear across Canada to be reunited with new parents in need of comfortable clothes. We have easy local pick up for maternity consignment in Prince George.
