Can you tell me what the size is like? I would probably buy a 12 usually but due to BF may need a bigger size if its small.

Its pretty snug but then I find barbours are generally pretty slim cut particularly over the boobs.

But its pretty £££ to buy a size that will be too big when you stop bf.

Its lovely though. Anywhere you can try both sizes on near to you?

Thanks, i'm due in dec and anticipate bf through till at least next winter but yes it is a bit extravagant blush. Really love it though and want a lovely warm coat. I have a Barbour from last year and its very snuggly fit, have 50 quid off voucher so need to buy online but could possibly try and find it to try it on in town.

I would say better to buy the bigger size for a year's use.

I tried the 8 and the 10 on and there wasn't much difference to be honest but at nearly £300 - personally I'd want something thats going to last more than one winter.
