are body warmers naff? Seen a really nice North Face one, but currently 2 stone of baby weight to lose and dh screwed up face when I suggested buying one. Look like lots more practical scooping up toddlers in playground than a coat.

Naff - and v unflattering if you are more than Kate Moss size I would have thought. Thermal layers and a lighter jacket is the way to go in this weather methinks.

rather partial to them myself blushgrin unless it's one of them NF padded michelin man style ones, not a good look

Perhaps naff, but dead practical. Depends what you wear it with and where - not with shoes and flowery dresses, but great with skinny jeans and flat boots.

I'm sitting in he house wearing mine as we live in a freezing house with no wireless boradband in the room with the woodburner, and I'm too tight to turn on the heating!

Exactly the one i had in mind stellamel! May have to admit hubby gave good style advice!

DH called me 'Captain Chav' for buying one for DD, aged 2 who hates coats at the moment. I think they're acceptable, in the right situation (Leeka, totally agree with the jeans/flat boots ensemble)

I like mine it is very practical for scooping up small people, you're right...

<pookamoo hopes she doesn't look naff as she's been wearing it for ages now>

DH wants to buy me the purple North face one, but my arms would get cold sad
and I tend to wear boyfriend cardis so it would look silly.
I would look uber frumpy I think, and I am tall and skinny.
