Less is generally considered more.
Except when you’re pregnant, when more is just the way it is.
Which is why you’ll want to get your fill of More of Me, the new locally designed line of maternity clothes.
Everyday pieces like a soft knit maxidress and extra-long tanks are must-haves. For occasions that call for a little pizazz, choose from a cool white eyelet dress, a metallic linen bib dress with gold buttons, and a high-collared silk mini in chartreuse or hot pink.
The entire collection can be worn right through your third trimester and postdelivery.
But by then we’re sure you’ll be saying thanks, but no more.
