I ladies, I'm in Maine, and we get Winters! Due March 5th I need a coat that will fit. Wearing Hubs' coat is not an option, I'm 5'2" small frame and he's 6'2" and my other coats are more tectical and fitting VERY tightly on my 22 week belly! I'd like something I can be everyday in like a regluar coat but if i can find something second hand and it's dresser I will make it work... Any ideas?! I have emailed a few mamas on craigslist... but nothing coming up...
Winter coat that look cute and don't cost a fortune!
I did buy a winter jacket from Motherhood Maternity on sale for $59, it is a puffer jacket, and it is really warm and comfy. I think they only have size XL left online, but they might have some in stores. http://www.destinationmaternity.com/mobile/Product.asp?Product_Id=93029400070&MasterCategory_Id=MC8
I also saw that H&M maternity has a similar puffer jacket online for $59 (google for a 20% off coupon before checkout). I bought a few things from H&M maternity (size small) and I thought they were better quality than the Motherhood Maternity clothes. Although for pants, Motherhood maternity is best because they have petite length!!
Hope this helps and good luck!
Yeah... I can't even zipper my xs coats. I just hate to buy one, but it's getting really cold. I'm 5'10 so all maternity clothes look silly on me. I've just been wearing xl in regular clothes. I am planning to shop for a coat on the way home. We have a maternity store in an outlet center. I might try there. Otherwise I'll just buy and XL from somewhere. I wish I ordered a Patagonia coat online, but I really need one for this weekend.
Have you tried TJ Maxx or Burlington Coat Factory? They have really good prices.. and pretty cute styles -- you may have to look a little harder. I live in the mountains in Colorado and we already have snow. I will need to get a new winter coat in a few weeks... Good luck!!! Post pictures when you find one!
Oh Ladies, these are great suggestions!! I will try Burlington and TJ maxx!! Also I will try Old navy this weekend!! i got something with my car saying that I have up to 40% off... but the "up to" part makes me think 15% is all I will get! Search continues, it's 46 degrees today, the fleece I have still "fits" my belly is sort of out below it... but it will do for another 2 week maybe.... I'm 23 weeks and 4 days today.... 24 weeks this weekend!!!
If you buy a wrap-style coat like a trench you might be able to get away with regular sizes (not maternity) and then you'd be able to wear it after baby, too!
I'm still in my wool-lined trench (I'm in VT, so I understand winters!) and I bet it lasts me the pregnancy. I'm just tying it right under my breasts instead of around the waist.
