Never did have much of a waist but its even less defined after DS2 was born 4 months ago...
Really need a warm winter coat but not sure which style to go for. Any ideas on what sort of chape/cut would be most flattering and where to look?

Bumping for my fellow "columns"...

What about a drop waist coat?
I have no waist either, blame ds but it was never really there before.

one that gives you a waist, so a nipped-in frock-coat type

no belts (saxk of spuds)
no double breasted (too mannish)
nothing straight cut (if fits at waist will bag over arse)

just hunting down some examples

do not use belt, do not button up to neck

deep v neck very good

Thanks MrsB, esp like the M&S one.
Agree re belts/double breasted/straight cut, all look awful on me, will pop to M&S and try that one on.
