Where are all the non-patterned stylish thigh length raincoats?
There is the black rainy day mac at boden but black is a bit harsh for me and size already sold out. Joules only have patterned and I'm just not sure about Seasalt (I don't think they're good for petites? and half of the mums on the school run wear them).
What else is out there?
Doesn't even have to be totally waterproof. Showerproof would be fine!
Re. sizing at Rains - it seems to be fairly true to size and some of the designs come with belts, so they can be cinched in at the waist. I like a fitted coat too, and can confirm that at least the one I have does have some form to it. I'm a 10, and the small fits. The main website does offer delivery to the U.K. and it's also stocked at places like Zalando, which will give you free returns.
I'm 5'2" and have the Seasalt Northstar. Sleeves are the perfect length (I have to turn up everything) and it comes to my knees. Very light but warm and the adjustable poppers at the back means you can make it more fitted if you prefer.
