Raincoat wanted

(28 Posts)

Oh yeah, but there are about a million specifications...

I want:

A proper PVC, rubber or plastic raincoat, preferably shiny.

Fitted, preferably belted.

With a hood.

Something I don't have to sell a kidney to afford.

Size 16.

Ok, that's five specifications, but it may as well be a million. Any help appreciated.

Just ordered the cream Carnaby from rainmac- will report back when it arrives. Thanks again, I had given up hope!

I've just found this one they only have a 14, but you might be able to find a 16 elsewhere.

But it does say to size down, as they are generous sizes.

Hi Tetherend,

I hope you received your Carnaby raincoat. I assume with all the rain we've had since April you've managed to fully test it!!
I have the 3/4 one in the Lilac colour. It's great, waterproof and everyone at school asks me where i got it. It also has a removable hood so take it off when i wear it out when i'm dressing up a bit, as the hood does make it look a bit more "mum on a mission"

If you ever get a chance pop down to their shop in Midhurst. The staff there are really friendly, thoroughly recommended.
