Maternity Winter Coat

Despite hopes for an Indian summer, it appears that the weather has only become increasingly colder. With that familiar nip in the air, it is now time to start looking at maternity winter coats. We are expecting to expand our coats and jackets database over the next few days, so keep checking back for more shopping options.

Choosing the Right Maternity Coat for You

When it comes to choosing a maternity winter coat, it is important to make allowances for your expanding chest size. Many women report experiencing incredible bra size increases during pregnancy as their milk comes in, and this will obviously reflect on the type of maternity winter coat you choose. If you are usually a size 10, you may want to consider buying a size 12. When choosing the right style, focus on what usually suits your body shape. Women with curves and hour glass figures tend to suit macs and trenches that are nipped in at the waist, and women with pear shaped figures suit such coats also. For those who are pregnant and have athletic and streamlined figures, a-line cuts are flattering and cosy.

Budget or blow out?

Whether you spend a lot or a little on your maternity winter coat will depend entirely on how much wear you are going to get out of it. If you are heading towards the end of your second trimester and the beginning of your third, it is natural to look at one that is going to save money. However, if you are in the earlier stages of your pregnancy, it may be worth buying something that will last a little while. As Britain isn't exactly famed for its clear cut seasons, the chances are you will be wearing your coat from October through to as late as April. Choosing one that has seven months worth of wear will be to your benefit.

Our growing collection of maternity winter coats starts with trenches that are priced at just £29.99. Check them out here, and keep checking back as we add more options.
