Sometimes planning a relaxing vacay can be the opposite of relaxing. Where to go? For how long? What to bring? To spare you a bit of travel stress, we rounded up five must-have maternity pieces for your packing list.

1. ASOS Maternity Exclusive Swimsuit with Bow ($46.30)

This adorable suit accentuates your belly with a simple monochrome bow and transforms into a bandeau or halter top depending on your mood.

2. Topshop Maternity Digifloral Print Bodycon Dress ($64.00)

Being a little bit bigger than your normal size allows you to get away with wearing bolder, more graphic prints—why not take advantage?

3. Hatch Soiree Dress in Jersey ($248)

A truly wear-anywhere dress, this Hatch maxi can easily take you from lounging poolside to dining at a Michelin-rated restaurant. We recommend the black color in jersey for major versatility (and a lower price.)

4. A Pea in the Pod Collection’s L*Space Embroidery Maternity Swim Cover-up ($124.00)

This piece was made for the day that requires a day-to-night wardrobe.

5. J. Crew Summer Straw Hat ($34.50)

The perfect summery hat to shield your eyes while indulging in a good beach-read (and it’s not too pricey in case it blows away.)

Hello, Babymoon. Goodbye, Polar Vortex.
