Thoughts on this coat

My other thread on a similar topic died after 2 replies, so sorry for repeating but need some advice. Would like a casual coat for weekends AND which will look nice apres ski and will be warm enough. My main issue is whether my huge boobs (34HH) will make me look like the michelin man. Also is the colour completely impractical (they have black too but not sure)?

I'm not a huge fan tbh...and the colour does make it a bit michelin man...it looks a bit double breasted with the way it fastens which can make coats look bulkier.

I prefer something like this black one or this one

It's good that it's water proof. Often padded coats aren't.

Not keen on the colour - It looks less like it's from BHS in the black.

I have DD boobs with a size 10 waist and wear a padded Merrell coat for walking the dogs as it's long and warm but I do look booby. I just add a scarf to break up my top half.

I love it. The colour would be awful on me and I spend far too much time in playgrounds to consider anything pale - but if it works for you then get it, I always think pale winter coats are a refreshing sight in a sea of black/navy/brown.

Thanks ladies. Good to know that not everyone thinks it's hideous. Would definitely have to be my 'good' casual jacket. Have a berghaus and Barbour for the playground

Like the two from house of Fraser too. Think a day trying on might be in order...!

I dont like the first one either...reminds me of a glow worm. I dont like the colour or the shape of the neckline..kind of cowl. If you are worried about your boobs making you look like the michellin man then i would go for something darker even with the padding.
