I'm 25 weeks now and not fitting into my normal coats (looking like humpty dumpty now).

I've a budget of around £40. Any ideas (and any discount codes???)

I got one off Next, it's a bit dull, in that it's grey (I usually wear bright colours!), but it is practical and warm etc.

I think it's £45.

Other poeple have also said New Look had some but I didn't look at those.

I second ebay, I got a second hand Next coat for £8 and keep getting lots of positive comments about it

Lots of my friends have gone for the swing coat style from a not maternity shop...tesco have them very reasonably priced.

Then there's a chance you might re-wear it.

I really struggled to find a reasonably priced maternity coat last year. There seemed to be a lot of competition for them on ebay too. In the end I bought a coat from Primark, just a couple of sizes bigger. I think it was about £20.

Saw two lovely Isabella Oliver coats on ebay last night!

I bought a cape style coat from Asos and it is perfect, keeps the bump warm and because of its shape it doesnt constrain me in any way.

It may not be the style you're after but I bought one of these coats off ebay to use as a maternity coat and it is fantastic- the perfect style for a growing bump and a total bargain! -Grey-Cape-Style-BNWT_W0QQitemZ250721203098QQcateg oryZ63862QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4340.m263QQ_trkp armsZalgo%3DDLSL%252BSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252 BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D250 709917569%252B250709917569%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clk id%3D4881868719024637693

I got a Dority Perkins one but not great as didnt have much more room than a normal coat and it was 60 but there is 25% off at the moment

Thanks I will check all your info out, I did have a look on ebay but there must be a huge influx of pregnant people on there because it's very competitive bidding on maternity coats at the moment.

i've got non-maternity coats, the style that button at the chest and then swing out. One from Zara was about £50 last yr (lost weight since becoming preg so is fitting great even tho im 22 weeks). The other was £25, wool, same sort of style from primark and I bought that 4 yrs ago when preg with DS.

Personally I would look around, you don't need to buy maternity labels if you find the right style of coat.

I second Tesco - £25 for a coat that you can button just at the top. Lots of pretty colours (so much of my maternity wardrobe is black/grey/white, it's nice to have something brightly coloured to wear). I just bought a size bigger than normal and it's doing fine at 27+3 - lots of room for growth still!

I got a really nice one, a 'reefer' jacket, from Debenhams (£45, see here (hope the link works)). Just buttons at the top, plenty of room for belly growth.

I third the cape coat idea - am 24 weeks and still wearing a normal coat (has very loose waist), but I have a cape coat that I got in Topshop 3 years ago and I plan to move onto it as soon as I grow out of this one. I just need to get some nice elbow-length gloves because it doesn't cover my arms to the wrist. I used to have leather ones but one got washed by accident and went all icky. Besides, the cape coats on Asos are adorable!
