Packing your babymoon bag: 6 essential styles

Making summer travel plans? Wondering what to wear on your babymoon? We're all for a little last hurrah trip to soak up the warm weather and what's left of your time as a party of two. Most doctors say you can travel up to the 36-week mark, but we recommend leaving town earlier—before the swelling, leg cramps, and restless nights really settle in.

Wherever your babymoon takes you, comfort and convenience should be at the top of your packing list—and we all know how much feeling like you have nothing to wear can harsh the mood. So we pulled together a few of our favorite travel looks to give you the best babymoon outfits. Let’s take a look at our six ultimate style picks we’re loving for upcoming adventures.

bump-friendly swimwear

Okay, so maybe the Maldives is a bit of an aggressive choice for a babymoon, but you can still bring the island vibes in this namesake swimsuit from Cache Coeur. We love the textured UV-resistant fabric, feminine ruffles, and *stunning* scooped back. When you and your bump are looking this cute, every day feels like a vacation.

Every-Occasion dresses

There’s a good chance your fav vacay dress won’t be fitting over your new bump. Let us help a girl out. Adding an all-occasion dress to your repertoire will give you just the thing to wear all day every day for your babymoon. Bonus: these ones dress up easily because your partner *better* be taking you out for at least one fancy night. 

wrinkle-free clothing

"I love ironing on vacation" - said no one ever. It's why we love this bump-friendly tank for year-round travel. The sustainable stretch fabric is leak-absorbing for your nursing days, plus the relaxed silhouette and anti-wrinkle fabric mean you can sit in a car, plane, or train all day and still stay comfy and look put together. Make it a set with our matching travel pant.

Double Duty looks

The key to every good carry-on wardrobe is versatility. Packing pieces that work whether you’re lounging in the Airbnb or hiking up a quick mountain are travel gold. Investing in a couple looks that pull double duty, like this bike short bodysuit or her full-length sis, will give you all the flexibility, and room in your suitcase for all the other preg essentials, that you could possibly want.

Comfy layers

Headed for warmer temps? Or perhaps an island breeze is in your future? The one thing that will prep you for drafty airports, toasty days, and chilly nights are the right layers. Take our Classic White Button Up. You can wear it all-the-way buttoned, long sleeves down, or completely open with the sleeves rolled up to let in just the right amount of air.

compression socks

Swollen legs and feet = babymoon buzzkill. If you’re pregnant and booked a long-haul flight, chances are your doctor will recommend you wear compression socks. These ones from Motif need to be on your list. They do all the things like ease swelling and varicose veins, but they’re also super stretchy and easy to put on. Plus they look kinda cute for a compression sock.

Summer travel while cookin a babe might be uncharted territory for you—but don't stress it, mama. That's what we're here for.

Think about the memories you’ll make as a couple before your little one arrives (not to mention the cute photo ops). #worthit. Put these styles on your packing list, take a deep breath, and try to relax and enjoy yourself! After all, you’ve earned this babymoon. Bon voyage, ma!
