So, you’re looking for a new maternity winter coat? At Viva la Mama we know how being pregnant in winter brings its challenges. Especially when your current wardrobe just isn’t up to the job. You know the problem, don’t you? Just when it’s at its most unpleasant outside you need to head out to go to work, to go shopping or perhaps meet up with friends. It’s then when you are oh so aware that your old jacket just doesn’t fit any more. Even worse perhaps, you can’t even do the blessed thing up!
As you head out of the door you realise that now is the time to invest in a properly designed maternity winter coat. No more making do, and looking like a frump. No more borrowing hubby’s and feeling pinched in all the places you really don’t want to be restricted. It’s time to enjoy looking pregnant and stylish – even in deepest winter. And, if you choose wisely, you’ll have a winter jacket that you can use well beyond your pregnancy.
What Makes Maternity Coats Different?
As your pregnancy progresses your body is changing. Your proportions are changing. You need more width around your waist, often also around your bust. A heavily pregnant body is different and so are the cuts needed for your clothes. Forget the idea of just buying a bigger size from your normal brand – no one wants to look like a sack of old potatoes! You still want to look good and show off your growing baby bump.
But, you don’t just want to look great (though that’s always an advantage, eh girls?) you need to be comfortable. That means the right material, the right cut and thought-through features and practical details. And, a winter maternity coat needs to protect you against all the elements – biting cold, unpredictable winds, regular rain showers and heavy snow in deep winter.
Winter Maternity Coats and Jackets – Must Have Features
Here’s a list of practical features to look out for when choosing your new maternity coat this winter.
- Material suitable for the range of weather conditions you are likely to encounter.
- A long cut to keep your bump and bottom warm.
- Long arms with cuffs – some models may have thumbholes.
- A generous and adjustable hood.
- Deep pockets to keep valuables safe.
Viva la Mama Winter Coats for Pregnancy and Beyond
As mums ourselves we’ve taken our practical experiences and created high quality and stylish maternity coats and jackets that go beyond the basic features listed above.
Our winter coats aren’t just suitable for while you’re pregnant. Almost all of Viva la Mama jackets and coats are designed so that you can wear them during your pregnancy and afterwards, either as a babywearing jacket or as a casual jacket or coat long after your baby is born. We have two methods for you to chose from to gain more width when you’re pregnant, depending on the model of the coat:
- Method one: you simply zip-in an insert.
- Method two: you open a zipper on each side which opens up more fabric.
