What style of coat for my shape?

Can anyone suggest what style of coat would suit my shape? I am a size 14 with broad shoulders, large norks and a bit of waist (kind of hourglass I guess). I normally struggle to find something that isn't too tight across my shoulders yet still shows I have a waist!
I am after a warm coat for everyday use. Have just found out I am pregant too just to complicate coat matters! Am happy to buy normal coat for time being then have a rethink once bump appears.
Thanks in advance smile

I'd suggest a swing coat for pregnancy (I got a Windsmoor black cashmere one off Ebay in a larger size that did me wonderfully all the way through) and a belted style to emphasise waist when not needing to accommodate a bump.

Single breasted best with big boobs.

Although ££ would this sort of cut suits you (I#m asimilar shape) here and here but see you're going to need more room for bump (congratulations btw)

I have similar figure, norks and waist - I bought this to tide me over until I find my winter coat. I had a lovely moleskin coat from gap once, v-neck, to just above the knee - it was fab.

I like heated's suggestions, but I fear they are for small norked only.

this looks like it could be flattering.

Thank you for the suggestions, there are a couple there I really like the look of. Atleast I will have any idea where to start now! smile
