I have loved all of your maternity wardrobe posts, so I thought I'd ask this one: I am looking for a great maternity coat. I am due the end of January and live in the chilly wet northwest. So I'll have a big belly as soon as the bad weather hits in September. I want a warm, well-made coat to carry me through the winter. I figure now is the time to buy because all the winter stuff should be on sale. I love this Isabella Oliver but it's spendy. If you gals could find me something sleek and flattering on sale for less than $70, I would love you forever (more than I already do). I am a size 6 pre-pregnancy, I like neutral colors, and I don't want the added girth of a puffy jacket at a time when I'm sure I'll feel like a tankard. Cuteness is my first priority, warmth my second, and water resistance an optional third."
Hey Metmet, Magzilla here. And this one is right up my alley. You and I are both pregnant and due around the same time (actually, I'm more like October but that's still cold) and also we're the same size. I heart the Isabella Oliver coat you showed us and went off of that. Keeping with the style, length and neutral tone, these six options are definitely budget friendly and worth a look-see. And even though not all of them are maternity coats, when purchased up a size or two, you can wear it all through January and after bambino makes his/her presence in this world. Happy pregnancy!!
