The best part of being pregnant this Summer?  You can wear this dress from More of Me maternity designs.  Gone are the days when maternity clothes were drab and boring.  Just ask More of Me designer, Jessica Boulanger, whose designs allow women to maintain their chic appearance during pregnancy.  According to Jessica, her designs are for women who wish to avoid maternity clothes like the plague....often buying regular clothes many sizes too big and trying to make it work.  

The More of Me collection is designed to look like the most stylish non-maternity clothes, yet is crafted with luxurious, pregnancy-friendly fabrics and exceptional maternity fit. Because, let’s face it, your body is a tad unrecognizable when you're expecting.  Designed by a fashion-conscious mom, More of Me has heard women say things like: “I know I’d have to give up sushi, soft cheese and dirty martinis, but these styles make me want to get pregnant for the clothes!” Now that’s quite a compliment.

We love the versatility of the designs.  They're perfect for casual wear as well as dinners and weddings.  And there's no end to the fun, stylish designs for the Summer.  Some of our favorites include:  the Momshell Dress (love the flattering asymmetrical cut), the Ikat Print Kimono Dress (fun, summery pastel colors) and the full length Take it To the Maxi (hide those swollen ankles).

We're not the only ones in love with the line.  Hollywood's hottest mamas and mamas-to-be including Bethenny Frankel and Tiffany Thiessen have been spotted out and about looking chic in their More of Me fashions.

More of Me is offering CBS readers an incredible exclusive deal.  Enter coupon code babyscoop20 upon checkout and receive 20% off your purchase.
