I tried the Isabella Oliver Grace coat, which looks fabulous on the website, but it did nothing for me ....made me look absolutely huge! so I sent it back. I might try the cocoon coat ... but I would prefer something that was not black. Thing is if I buy biger size for coat, then it is massive everywhere else, and possibly straining over tummy .... but guess I just need to find the right cut of coat - which has room for tummy expansion!!
depends what size/shape you are, but i was about sz 12 with big boobs and i found that as my tummy grew longer things made me look like a tank so wearing shorter things on top and leaving legs uncovered turned into a Good Thing!
Umerella - I agree that Isabella Oliver one is very nice ... but cannot see it in grey! Only in cream ("oyster") or black .... think I might try the cream though ............ will it be warm enough though, as it is only short?
I looked on US ebay a couple of weeks ago. There were quite a lot that would ship to the UK and still worked out cheaper than most UK ones. Have been lent a long greay one from Gap maternity but I haven't seen it here. Friend got in in the US. I got a jacket from Zara maternity the other day- they do black and a sort of grey. £80 but much nicer material than the one I saw in Top Shop for £65. I reckon I could wrap it round a baby in a sling as well for more use!
Try blooming mavelous they have some in their new catalogue. I will need one soon, but don't want to buy a normal coat in a larger size as it will be bigger all over and i want to look normal with a bump not humpty dumpty.
