Pear shaped coat

Well a coat for a pear shape!

I'm size 18 (I'm working on it!hmm) and need a smart coat for my daughters christening. I'm a pear shape so I think it needs to be double breasted, maybe belted type thing. I'm wearing a black dress so any colour is good.

Ideally under £100.

Anyone seen or bought something similar in the sales?

I'm also pearshaped and just ordered a navy pea coat for £55 from next. No idea if it suits my shape, it's just I style I love

I am thinking
-double breasted may not be so good for pear shape
-belted may well be, would show off waist
-maybe colour (?navy) would be good, so not all black

e.g. [[,en_GB,pd.html?dwvar_595809Z_color=75000&dwvar_595809Z_size=14&start=2&cgid=womens-sale this will come in as just over £100 with discounts

Hope you find something nice!!

Definitely not double breasted op

Thank you! That's really helpful, Google said double breasted for pear shape but clearly wrong.

Love the jaegar coat, thank you

Thanks so much herecomesthesun I've just ordered the jaegar coat, excellent value for 100% wool, I'd been looking at polyester mix types for not much less.

I'd have never spotted it, thanks so much smile

I've gone for the charcoal, I'll try and find a nice bright scarf.

The Jaegar is lovely. What a quick and happy conclusion smile
